CORPORATE CUP CLOSES IN RECORD TIME
250 Team Limit Reached in Three Days
Bloomsday’s Corporate Cup has proven especially popular this year, as the team competition reached its limit of 250 teams in less than three days. Signup for Corporate Cup opened at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, and closed mid-day today.
“The fastest we’ve ever closed before is nine days,” said Lilac Bloomsday Association President Carol Hunter, who also directs the Corporate Cup. “But the opportunity to be in the drawing for a free iPad seems to have encouraged early registrations this year.”
Everyone signed up for Bloomsday through this Sunday, February 13th, including individuals and Corporate Cup team members, will have a chance of winning one of two iPads donated by Strong Solutions.
The Corporate Cup, which is sponsored by Orthopaedic Specialty Clinic, is a competition within Bloomsday in which businesses consisting of five team members compete amongst other businesses of similar size using a unique scoring system that matches team members against other runners in their age and gender division. Bloomsday promotes Corporate Cup participation as a great way to encourage fitness and healthy lifestyles among employees.
Along with race day competition, Corporate Cup teams compete to see who can come up with unique and amusing team names. Last year’s “Best Team Name” contest was won by B&B Physical Therapy (“Plantar Fascists”).
This year’s Lilac Bloomsday Run is on Sunday, May 1. Individual registration is currently open at www.bloomsdayrun.org .
