The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge will be scored using a chip scoring system. Each race number will have a timing chip affixed to the back. Official timing for team scoring purposes begins when the participant crosses the start mat.
The company captain will determine the composition of the male, female and mixed teams representing his/her company
AFTER the race.
Teams must be organized online using Captain Tools and in accordance with the scoring rules.
Participants must cross the mats at the start and finish lines to be timed, and must wear a chip to have a result recorded. It will not be possible for captains to enter times online. All recorded times will be listed on the Corporate Challenge website.
Participants will be automatically organized into 4-person male, female, and mixed teams based on the chip times. Each name will be assigned to only ONE team. The score for each team is obtained by adding together the finish times for all four members.
Complete teams are composed of:
- Male team: four men
- Female team: four women
- Mixed team: two men and two women
Company captains must confirm their teams online after the race by using Captain's Tools. You may re-organize the automatically assigned teams at this time if desired or necessary.
Individual and special awards will be listed on this website following each race. Team results will be added as soon as they are verified.
- Once a company team has won a division in any of the 2016 Corporate Challenge races, those individual team members are not eligible to score on any other team at any other Corporate Challenge race.
