Registration Opens for J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® 2014

11th Annual Race Will Attract Capacity Crowd of More Than 16,000 Participants

21 January 2014The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge returns on Thursday, 24 April 2014 for the 11th edition of the race in Singapore. Registration opens today and companies are encouraged to register early as a record crowd is expected.

The 2013 race attracted a sold-out crowd of 16,500 participants from 400 companies, the largest in the history of the Singapore Corporate Challenge. It has become one of the signature events in the worldwide J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series, which is held in 13 cities in seven countries on five continents.  In 2014, the event takes place during J.P. Morgan’s yearlong celebrations to mark 50 years of doing business in the city.

Similar to previous editions, the J.P Corporate Challenge will start on Esplanade Bridge with a finish line adjacent to the Formula 1 Pit Building. This unique 5.6-kilometer team run/walk is open to full-time employees of local businesses and corporations. Registration is now open at www.jpmorgan.com/cc and each registered company must enter a minimum of four employees, with no maximum.  All skill levels are welcome – racers, joggers and walkers.

Since its first race in Singapore in 2004, companies look forward to the annual J.P Morgan Corporate Challenge, reflecting their commitment to work-life balance, fitness and camaraderie in the workplace. Traditionally held on a Thursday in April, the iconic event is one of the first races in Singapore that encourages companies to put work aside on a work day for an evening of fun and fitness.

The winners of the Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Divisions at the J.P Morgan Corporate Challenge will earn an invitation to the 2015 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship, which will take place next year on a date and location to be determined.  The 2013 team champions in Singapore were Singapore Prison Service (men), Baker & Mckenzie.Wong & Leow (women) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (mixed).  They have been invited to compete at the 2014 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship in London on Wednesday, 9 July.
