Why Wake Up Early on A Weekend to Show Off All of Your Hard Work. Join Us After Work on a Thursday Night and Compete in a Healthy Event (1-mile or 5k race) before Heading out for a Night on the Town.
About the Event:
The Company Cup 5K (3.1 miles) is a workplace-focused fitness promotion that starts off with a 12-week training program and culminates in a Salt Lake City, Corporate 5K Run/Walk or 1-mile, The Wasatch Mile race, and Networking party. This health and wellness program is designed to promote health and increase fitness among Utah Companies and their employees. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Utah STEM Action Center. So grab 3 or more of your co-workers and get signed up as a team or join us yourself for this event.
How it Works:
You can sign up as either a team or an individual for the 5k race and as individuals for the 1-mile race. If you are signing up as a team, the team captain must first set up the team. Then, employees (or family/friends) sign on as part of a company team. Each team can have as many members as it wants, but only the top 4 runners will score for each team. Participants receive a 12-week turn-key training program once they register which includes training schedules, diet advice, injury prevention, and behavior modification/sports psychology tips along with discounts and more. The program culminates in Downtown Salt Lake City near the Capitol at 500 N and E Capitol on Bonneville Blvd, on Thursday, September 22, 2016, at 4:00 pm with a pre-race networking party followed by a 1-mile race, The Wasatch Mile, and then the Company Cup 5K Run/Walk.
Team categories in the 5k race are Men, Women, and Co-ed (Men and Women Mixed) and prizes will be given to the top 3 in each category. The races will be age-graded based on USA Track and Field guidelines to make it an equal playing field with teams of individuals who are in different age groups. Individual awards will be available for the top 3 overall male and female runners in both the 1-mile and 5k races. Prizes will also be given away for best company t-shirt design.
The Thursday, September 22, 2016, Company Cup 5K Run/Walk and wellness program will attract participants of all levels of fitness (walkers, joggers, and competitive runners) from companies all over the Wasatch Front as well as hundreds of individual participants. The 5k race is open to those 18 years of age and older and the 1-mile race is open to all ages and ability levels. No matter the size of company you work for, or if you work for a city or the State, a school, or if you work from home or are self-employed, you won’t want to miss this event. This fitness program is designed to get you in the best shape possible for running the 5K event. This race will sell out, so don't hesitate to get registered and join us.
