The following is a guest post from Boilermaker Corporate Cup Director, Cosmo Costellano.
Does your company have an employee team running in the Boilermaker Corporate Cup Competition? If not, there is still time to register, and it is totally free! Countless studies have proven the importance of a fit workforce ranging from reduced absenteeism, greater productivity to reduced insurance premiums. There is no doubt that the company that exercises together builds a greater team mentality as well as camaraderie.
But are these the only reasons to enter a Corporate Cup team this year- No! Participating in the Corporate Cup is just plain fun!
Each team runner receives a commemorative Corporate Cup Mug. Many teams select one of the Boilermaker T-Shirt printers to outfit your team with runner’s singlets to proudly display your company logo in the race. A Corporate Cup after work event is held within two weeks after the race to award each of the top three teams in each category with a trophy plaque to display. Enjoy food, beverages and a chance to win free registration for Boilermaker 2018.
In addition to our own fun, we are pleased to award three charities with $500 each year. The charities are selected at random during the awards event from charities designated by each of the company teams. You have a chance to not only run well but do well for the community.
Competition categories are established for male, female, coed and masters teams and also large, medium, and small size companies. There is a competition category for every business.
The bonds developed among the runner-employees last long after the Boilermaker event. Most of the teams competing return year after year, and friendly rivalries have been fun to watch. Browse through past results at http://www.boilermaker-corpcup.com/.
There is still time to field your team for 2017. The deadline is June 30th, so do not delay.
Pick your reason:
- promotes healthy activity and team-building among employees
- company visibility in Utica’s largest sporting event
- free gift for each employee runner
- Invitation to awards ceremony
- gifts to charity
- it’s fun
- it’s free
Whatever reason, please join us. Your company’s participation is a clear win-win — in terms of health, morale and productivity, and community involvement.
All employee runners of all levels are welcome. To encourage participation, just the top three or top five finish times are used for the team score. Additional employee runners add to the fun and camaraderie.
