The JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge is a 3.5-mile road race and participants enter as part of a company team. A minimum of four employees from each company are required and there is no maximum, though several races in the 2006 Series reached full capacity shortly after entries opened and are expected to do so again in 2007.
The JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge has been run annually since 1977 when the concept launched with one race in New York 's Central Park. A total of 200 runners from 50 companies entered that debut event. Now the Corporate Challenge is the largest road race in almost every market it visits. In fact, in 2006 demand for entries exceeded supply in several cities, including Boston, Chicago, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, New York and Singapore.
