The 2023 global J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge race series will formally kick-off in Johannesburg. The event will unite runners around the world in fifteen cities including Argentina, Australia, China, England, Germany, Singapore, the United States, and South Africa.
We are thrilled to be back on the Johannesburg suburbs roads again, and be the first J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge host city to return to full capacity participation. In continuing our purpose of promoting employee wellness, we encourage South African company teams to join us for an evening of fitness, friendly competition and fun by signing up for the race before registration closes on March 3. Participating in the global running series brings a sense of personal achievement, and our plans to bring you a memorable event are well underway.

On race day, the top performing South African corporate runners are known to log remarkable finishing times of around 17 and 21-minutes between the first male and female runners respectively. Streaming in behind the winners, is a crowd of up to 14’000 energized South Africans from all cultures, fitness levels and corporate hierarchy eager to collect their finisher medals.
