Corporate Challenge

Are your employees up for the challenge?

Many companies today are making a commitment to help their employees live a healthy lifestyle.   Fifth Third River Bank Run is looking to find the companies most committed to employee health and wellness. The Corporate Challenge uses the 5K Walk, 5K, 10K and 25K events as a way for employees to get active, have fun and compete.

Gather your co-workers and join the Challenge by creating a team that will participate in any race day event on .  The team's combined efforts (total employees participating vs. company size) will determine the Corporate Challenge winners.  The deadline to register for your team is 11:59p on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at 11:59p (EDT).  To even the playing field, teams will compete for a trophy in categories based on the size of the company; small (0-25), medium (26-100) and large (101+).

Trophy presentation will be on the Finish Fest stage on Calder Plaza to the winning companies on  where you can talk about your company's commitment to wellness.
