The Corporate Cup competition is a great way to build team spirit and increase the enthusiasm of your employees. Training for the Corporate Cup keeps workers physically active, contributes to lowered incremental health related costs and provides a fun, motivating, camaraderie building activity. If you haven’t participated as a company team before, get your company’s runners organized and enter a team. Here is some information about what is involved.
Thanks to the Boilermaker Road Race and our Sponsor, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, your team may benefit a charity! Each team will select a non-profit organization of their choice. At the Corporate Cup Awards Night, three non-profit organizations will be selected at random and awarded a cash prize. Each team submitted may designate a charity, and each charity submitted will be placed into the drawing.
A charity, in this case, is an organization that is organized and operated for purposes that are beneficial to the public interest and is designated as a charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
(Verification web address: http://www.irs.gov/app/pub-78/ )
Only one prize will be awarded to a charity. Since many teams may designate the same charity, duplicate awards will be discarded and the drawing will continue until three separate awards are made.
Awards are presented to the fastest teams, but every team is a winner. There are divisions for small (under 250 employees), medium (under 1000 employees), and large businesses as well as women’s, coed and master’s teams, so that every team has a chance against similar competition.
Corporate Cup Gift
Once again, the Corporate Cup is offering a team gift for each company runner. The Corporate “Cup” mug, exclusive for team runners, has been a treasured item for team members for many years! Team captains should pick up this years’ teams’ gift at the Corporate Cup Booth at the Health and Fitness Expo before the race.
If you are interested in purchasing team singlets, we will be offering singlets with the Boilermaker logo on the back and will be happy to screen your company’s logo on the front. This is a great way to make your company visible on the streets and show your company spirit! For more information call:
Team Sizes and Scoring
Team scoring will be based on the average finish time, based on net, or chip time, of:
MASTERS TEAMS: (40+ year -old runners only)
OPEN DIVISION TEAMS:
*Note: Scoring for Coed teams will include the first 3 finishers composed of at least 1 male and 1 female runner for small corporations, and the first 5 finishers composed of at least 2 male and 2 female runners for medium and large corporations.
Minimum team size is 5 for large and medium teams, or 3 for small, female, masters, and open teams, as indicated to complete the scoring.
There is no maximum size for teams.
A company many field as many teams as they wish, however, team runners may only run on a single team.
As always, your written comments and suggestions are welcome.
Remember, individuals can only run on only 1 corporate team. So, if you plan on entering a men's team or a women's team in addition to a coed or master's team you must split up your talent accordingly.
