Run-Up Challenge

Join the Corporate "Run-Up" Challenge

Shine a positive light on the good works of your organization and your employees. Corporate teams* of three will compete for two different trophies:

  • The NYC Triumph Cup trophy will go to the fastest team, determined by the combination of the fastest two times of any given team.

  • The Spirit of Giving Cup trophy will go to the team with the highest fundraising total.

New this year: The Pharma Cup Challenge*

Trophies will be awarded to the fastest team and the team that raises the most funds that works in the pharmaceutical or cancer research field.

Individual Prizes:

Three cup trophies will also be awarded to individuals:
  • Most funds raised by an individual (who is not on a corporate team)
  • Fastest female overall – (whether on a corporate team or not)
  • Fastest male over all – (whether on a corporate team or not)

All winners will be invited to return in 2015 to defend their title.

Build camaraderie and support a great cause at this high profile event, the second most highly publicized of the New York Road Runners.
