Now in its fifth year, the Corporate Cup, sponsored by Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, is a 5km race series aimed at all the businesses and corporations based in Jersey. This series is designed to help businesses promote and encourage a healthy way of life to all its employees, thus adding more scope and depth to existing health promotion protocols. Runners can compete as part of a team or as individuals.
Running is one of the cheapest and easiest sports to get involved with. We are aiming to promote running as a healthy and enjoyable activity to everyone, encouraging mixed, mens, and ladies teams into a fun but competitive event.
This series will act as a cost effective team building activity that is open to everyone in your business.
The series will consist of six 5km races, five of which will take place on a Wednesday of each consecutive month at 12.45pm, allowing people to fit the run into their lunch break. The final race and presentation will take place at 17.45. There will be no time cut off so if people want to race, jog, walk or crawl everyone will be made welcome (as long as they get back to work in time!).
Reserves/replacements to teams can be made if a team member cannot make one of the events. The replacement runners must be from the same business (can be visiting employee from off island) and we must be informed in advance.
The Corporate Cup will be supporting Jersey Sports Association For The Disabled. Teams are encouraged to raise sponsorship money if possible and can use the Race Nation site for making donations. In addition £40 from each team entry / £10 from each individual will go to the JSAD to help support them in their fantastic work.

Teams, Individuals and prizes
The Corporate Cup is a team based event but individuals are also welcome to enter and run alongside the teams.
During the course of the season teams will accumulate points from each race, with the best three race times counting towards the overall results. All times for both teams and individuals will be announced after each race. The final race of the series will not count to the team standings but will determine the fastest male and fastest female runners, with prizes being awarded accordingly.
The team event will be split into three categories: Mens; Ladies and; Mixed with a Corporate Cup Trophy to be won in each. Teams will be made up of four
people (mixed teams must include one female runner) from the same company/business. There will also be Corporate Cups awarded to the first man and the first lady in the individual race (final race of the series).
Entries will be accepted after the series has commenced but three separate race results are needed to take part in the race series standings.
Reserves/replacements to teams can be made if a team member cannot make one of the events. The replacement runners must be from the same business (can be visiting employee from off island).
