for 31st running of San Francisco race
SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2015 — Entry capacity has been reduced for the 31st running of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in San Francisco, so it is important to plan your company entry now.
Registration is now open for the Corporate Challenge, scheduled for Wednesday, September 9 at McCovey Cove. Capacity is 10,000 total entrants, down from the 12,750 who entered last year, as we strive to create the best possible race experience for all participants.
The entry fee for this year's race is $40 per person and registration will close when capacity is reached or on August 21. Please act now to ensure your company's spot.
Last year, the full-capacity crowd from 390 companies ran a 3.35-mile course in China Basin and the Embarcadero, and thousands followed that with a first-time hospitality party on the field at adjacent AT&T Park, home of the 2010 and 2012 World Champion San Francisco Giants.
It was easily the largest field in a long history of Corporate Challenge races in San Francisco, breaking the previous record of 10,750 set in 2013.
Kate Tenforde of runcoach wins her second consecutive women's title in 2014.
San Francisco hosted its first Corporate Challenge in 1983 when 1,300 participants from 150 companies participated. The race really began to grow in popularity in 2010 when it moved to its current location. Since then, the event has nearly doubled in size, and it attracts some of the most prestigious employers in the Bay Area. In 2014, Salesforce had an amazing 1,144 participants, VMware 323; Genentech 256, Gilead Sciences 200, Twitter 191 and Google 176.
Kate Tenforde of runcoach is the two-time defending women's champion at San Francisco, winning here last year in a time of 19:09. Chris Chavez of UBS won the men's competition in 16:07. Team champions were Google (men's and women's) and runcoach (mixed).
J.P. Morgan will once again make a donation on behalf of all Corporate Challenge entrants to Year Up Bay Area.
This year, San Francisco also will host the 32nd annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship, bringing together the first place men's, women's and mixed teams from all 13 cities from seven countries in the 2014 Series. To be run a few minutes before the regular Corporate Challenge, the Championship will continue its "Olympic" rotation of Series cities, after visiting Johannesburg, Singapore, Chicago, Rochester, N.Y., and London since 2010.
