Participants of the 2016 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge.

Turn your company participation in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge into a true team-building experience when you enhance your company's involvement by adding Race Night Hospitality.

Here are some of the reasons why companies participate in Race Night Hospitality:

  • Brings athletes and non-athletes from all levels of the company together for one evening
  • Supports company Wellness Programs and Corporate Responsibility initiatives
  • Provides a designated site with your company name at the Corporate Challenge
  • Offers tent sizes and furniture packages to meet your company needs
  • Provides a pre-race staging location for your employee's belongings and gear
  • Seven dedicated and authorized Corporate Challenge Preferred Caterers to choose and work with
  • Creates an excellent opportunity for participant networking with other company teams


Always a sellout, hospitality sites will be located in the various Chicago Park District Groves throughout the race site in Grant Park. Each grove is a color-coded zone and sites are numbered for ease of location and identification by your team. Tents, tables, chairs, LED indoor lights and French barricades (to display company signage) are available to outfit your site. See the Hospitality Site Reservation form for tent furniture packages and tent furniture packages with additional fenced space.
