Registration opens for popular London races
Enter online now to ensure a spot in July 9 and July 10 events
Runners start off in the 2007 JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge in London.
London, March 19, 2008 – With sold-out crowds likely again this summer, now is the time for companies to get their teams together and enter the 2008 JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge in London. Online registration for the popular mid-summer classics in Battersea Park opened today.
The 22nd year of this unique corporate event again will take place over two nights – Wednesday, July 9 and Thursday, July 10. In recent years, the race has been quick to reach capacity, with more than 12,000 participating on each of last year's two nights of racing.
London annually has produced some of the quickest times in the world's premiere corporate running series, with Claire Martin and her perennial powerhouse Royal Mail Letters team again leading the way in 2007. But, London also joins the other cities in this five-continent Series as being a superb venue for corporate hospitality, which is another reason to organize your team early.
Hospitality packages are available now for the event. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so book early to ensure your company's hospitality requirements are met.
The entry fee for the 2008 JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge is £18 per person and JPMorgan Chase will make a donation for each participant to Sportsaid. Race nights will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please register early – once the race is full, organizers will not be able to accept any more runner applications. Please note, a company can sign up for one race night only. The minimum size of teams in the Male, Female and Mixed categories is four people.
An important focus for the 2008 JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge series will be working towards a “green” environment at all our race events. The theme of our efforts is “Teaming Up For a Greener Tomorrow” and step one of this initiative is to encourage 100-percent online registration.
In addition to the camaraderie and fitness aspects of the event, the London JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge also has a competitive side. The fastest male, female and mixed teams (providing they are from three different companies) will be invited to participate in the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge Championship taking place in New York on October 4.
