Employees from various organizations will run and walk the 3.5-mile course in WNY’s largest annual race which will be held this year on Thursday, June 7, with the traditional 6:45 p.m. start at Delaware Park. In its 32nd year, the Buffalo JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge has averaged 12,000 registrants from nearly 400 companies. Teams are being put together and projected finish times are being thrown into the pool. With Kaleida‘s Spring into Fitness 5K orchestrated by the Kaleida Health Foundation and other races like it kicking off the spring push to encourage employees and the community to improve their health by promoting physical activity, the Corporate Challenge is bound to offer a healthy and fun time for those who attend.
After the race, participants will retreat to their company tents and enjoy the customary meal offered as they eat, drink and be merry. The JPMorgan Chase Foundation will make a donation on behalf of all participants to the American Red Cross, Greater Buffalo.
A new feature, a timing chip, will allow for times to be recorded based on when runners cross the start and finish lines. No more collecting and entering finish times after the race. Participants will have to go online to confirm their scoring teams.
Entry Fee: $32 until close-date Thursday, May 24, 2012.
