Corporate Challenge Deadline Nears - SUNY Cortland

Corporate Challenge Deadline Nears

 Corporate Challenge Deadline Nears

05/16/2013 

Time is running out for SUNY Cortland employees to register to top their 2012 J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge turnout record. The College again will participate in the all-inclusive running and walking event Tuesday, June 18.

Registration for the 3.5-mile road race, which starts at 6:25 p.m. at Onondaga Lake Parkway in Liverpool, N.Y., costs $15 and includes a technical team shirt from Asics, post-race food and drinks, transportation and all event fees.

Registration must be completed online by noon on Friday, May 17, and payment — preferably by check made payable to SUNY Cortland — should be turned in to Chris Tucker or Kerry Mincher in the College’s Purchasing Office. Payment can be made after online registration.

According to race rules, only employees can represent a company.

No experience is necessary to participate in Central New York’s largest running event, which welcomes more than 6,000 runners and walkers annually. Last year, SUNY Cortland’s team featured 121 employees, ranking 10th among 283 Central New York organizations in terms of participation and setting an all-time high for the College despite temperatures that climbed higher than 90 degrees.

The original June event was shortened to two miles due to the warm weather and the College’s four-person men’s and women’s teams won a more competitive do-over in August.

Both of those teams are set to compete in the international championship, which takes place Tuesday, May 21, at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y.

For more information on the 2013 event, visit the Syracuse Corporate Challenge website or contact Tucker at 607-753-2488.
