Due to COVID-19 related concerns, the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge – the world’s longest-running and largest corporate sporting event – has postponed all 2020 races through July 1-2.
The affected events are Johannesburg (March 26), Chicago (May 21), New York City (May 27-28), Rochester (June 2), Frankfurt (June 17), Buffalo (June 18), Boston (June 25), The Championship (July 1), and London (July 1-2).
JPMorgan Chase, the owner and operator of the Corporate Challenge Series, is currently investigating new dates in 2020 for all those 3.5-mile (5.6km) company team races.
There are no date changes planned and registration will open later in 2020 for these events: Syracuse (September 10), San Francisco (September 15), Philadelphia (October 1), Dallas (October 21), Sydney (October 28), Buenos Aires (November 5), Shanghai (TBD), and Singapore (November 26).
This marks the 44th consecutive year of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, founded in New York in 1977. The 2020 Series will feature 15 cities in eight countries and, for the first time, on all six inhabited continents with the addition of first-year city Buenos Aires, Argentina in South America. Total attendance in the 2019 Series was 251,299 runners and walkers from 7,581 companies.
