SUNY Cortland employees don’t have to run fast to be a part of the College’s J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge team. But they do need to act fast if they want to attend the annual evening run/walk promoting health and fitness.
Registration must be completed online by noon on Wednesday, May 20.
The College again will participate in the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge on Tuesday, June 9. The 3.5-mile run/walk starts at 6:25 p.m. at Onondaga Lake Parkway in Liverpool, N.Y. Registration costs $15 and includes a team shirt, post-race food and drinks, transportation and all event fees. 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.
Participants are free to run or walk the event, and no previous experience is necessary. According to race rules, only employees can represent a company.
Last year, more than 8,500 people participated in Central New York’s largest annual running event. SUNY Cortland sent a team for the eighth consecutive year and its four-person men’s team finished with the fastest overall time, earning a trip to the 2015 international championship to be held in San Francisco in September.
