Corporate Challenge Registration Due Thursday

Corporate Challenge Registration Due Thursday

05/17/2016 

All runners, joggers and walkers from the College are encouraged to come together for a night of fun and fitness at the annual J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in June, but they’re encouraged to sign up by noon on Thursday, May 19.

The 3.5-mile run/walk takes off at 6:25 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, at Onondaga Lake Parkway in Liverpool, N.Y., and employees can register for the event online.

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. This is the ninth year SUNY Cortland has participated in the Corporate Challenge. In 2014, the College’s four-person men’s team finished with the fastest overall time, earning a trip to the 2015 international championship held in San Francisco.

“It’s a great opportunity for all of our employees,” Tucker said. “The best corporate runners in Central New York compete at the front of the pack, joggers and walkers settle in for a comfortable night of exercise, and then everyone celebrates their achievement at a massive post-race party, featuring hundreds of company tents and unmatched camaraderie.”  

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