I learned of the Corporate Challenge last year when it was too late to register for the event…I saw plenty of local friends posting all over Facebook about how they’re participating with their work friends in the Corporate Challenge.
I was intrigued by the idea of this. It’s a 3 1/2 mile race, using collective times of all team members as a means of winning. While last year was my 1st year hearing about this, did you know the Corporate Challenge is 31 years old? This will be the 31st year of the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge here in Syracuse…hey, that’s pretty neat!
This year, more than 8000 runners & walkers from 300 local businesses are expected to participate…if that isn’t the definition of a community event, I don’t know what is! I decided to post this early (the actual race is on June 18th) because Registration is still open for this event and if your company is still interested in registering you’ve got a few days left (registration closes Friday).
Tip: If you’re not participating in the Corporate Challenge and you commute through the village of Liverpool, I suggest finding an alternative route…last year traffic on Old Liverpool Road was backed up for miles.
