SUNY Cortland once again finished strong at the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge, taking second place in the mixed team division at the 3.5-mile race in Syracuse on June 7.

More than 40 faculty and staff members ran and walked for the College’s team. They contributed to a near-record crowd of 7,862 runners and walkers from 280 companies for the event.

SUNY Cortland’s second-place mixed team included Julie Barclay, lecturer of geology, with a time of 24:14; Michael Bersani, assistant director of public relations, at 20:16; Jason Harcum, assistant director of recreational sports for outdoor pursuits, at 19:56; and Pam Sullivan, payroll manager, finishing in 27:01.

In 2014, the College’s men’s team placed first and competed at the series’ international championship race in San Francisco in September 2015. In 2013, both the SUNY Cortland men’s and women’s squads competed at the championship race in Rochester, N.Y.

Kerry Mincher and Christopher Tucker ’01, Purchasing Office, organized the College’s efforts with assistance from Brenda Chaffee, Accounting, Kristi Hughston and Melissa Fox, Purchasing Office, and Jillian Tucker, Admissions.

It marked the ninth year SUNY Cortland has participated in Central New York’s most popular corporate fitness event.
