The 2013 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in Buffalo is scheduled for Thursday, June 6. We encourage every employee of your company to enter, whether they are experienced racers, joggers or walkers. We thank you for your interest in fitness and health, and look forward to seeing you at Delaware Park!
||JPMorgan Chase & Co., in honor of Corporate Challenge participants, will make a donation to the YMCA Buffalo Niagara, part of more than $700,000 that will be donated in Corporate Challenge cities throughout 2013.
The Company Captain
The Company Captain plays an instrumental role on behalf of the participating company and is the liaison with the Race Coordinator. The Company Captain is responsible for forming a team, recruiting runners, finalizing the entry, obtaining and distributing race day materials to the participants, and submitting scores. The Company Captain also coordinates the t-shirt contest entry and makes hospitality arrangements, if desired.
A convenient checklist is available which details the responsibilities of the Company Captain.
The Registration Process
There are three steps in the registration process: 1) the company team is created, 2) participants register themselves, and 3) the company team is finalized. If participants do not pay their own registration fee, then the Company Captain will pay when the team is finalized.
Each company team may have an unlimited number of registered participants. However, you must meet the minimum registration requirements - four men for a male team, four woman for a female team, or two men and two women for a mixed team.
- To determine the submission date of your company entry, the Race Coordinator will use the date that your company entry is finalized, or the date that full payment is made, whichever is later.
- No changes will be allowed once the company entry has been finalized.
- No race day entries will be accepted.
- Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable even in the case of event cancellation.
- Race packets will not be released until all entry fees have been paid.
Create Your Company Team
Create your company team by using the link provided at the top of this page. You will be asked for contact information, information about your company, payment method (captain pays or runners pay), and the number of runners you expect to register for your company team. New company captains will also establish a user name and password for Captain tools; current company captains should use their previous year's user name and password. If you have forgotten your password, you may request it from the Captain tools login page.
Once your team is created, your personalized company team page lists your participants as they register and has a bulletin board for team and race updates and an area to post pictures. The Captain Tools link lets you customize and maintain your company team page, and provides team management tools to email your team members, update your company team information, finalize your team and make credit card payments. If you need to update team member's information, please email the race coordinator.
Next, register yourself if you plan to run, using the registration link at the top of this page. Provide your company employees with the details of the race and direct them to this website to register themselves.
Finalize your Company Team
After all of your participants have registered, use Captain Tools to finalize your entry and make a credit card payment, if desired. Submit payment by the entry closing deadline to complete your company entry. See Payment Options below. If payment is not received by the deadline, your company team entry may be rejected.
Payments are accepted by credit card and company check or money order. There is no limit to the number of credit card payments per company entry, however, only one company check or money order will be accepted per company entry. The following payment combinations are acceptable:
- Individual runners may pay by credit card as they register online.
- A company captain may pay for the entire team by credit card when finalizing the entry, or submit a company check or money order for the entire team.
A credit card processing fee of $1.75 for individual payments and $10.00 for company captain payments will be charged.
Company Entry Checklist

- Distribute race details and registration instructions to all potential team members.
