The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship made its first visit to Frankfurt, Germany and the United States came up big. For the first time in Championship history, the red, white and blue earned all three team titles and the women’s individual crown.

Overview

The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Championship is an invitational event designed to celebrate the unique corporate culture of the worldwide Series. The 3.5-mile road race brings together the first-place men’s, women’s and mixed teams from each of the 13 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series cities — a total of 156 participants from 39 companies in 13 cities and seven countries.

The Championship was held in New York for the first 26 years of its existence (1983–2008), primarily on the first Saturday in October on Park Avenue. After a year off in 2009, the Championship adopted an “Olympic rotation” style, visiting cities throughout the Corporate Challenge Series and integrating the Championship within the regularly-scheduled Corporate Challenge in each city.
