The purpose of the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines is to promote running and walking as a means to a fit, healthy lifestyle for people from all walks of corporate life. Media sponsors help us foster community interest in the benefits of fitness and camaraderie in the workplace, and encourage public participation throughout a diverse community. A healthy employee makes a healthy company!
The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines is made up of 3 individual 5K road races that are held in the evening during the work week (Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach & Miami). The Series spans a period of 30 days. Each Race offers unique opportunities to communicate not only with 1,200 South Florida companies, but with every tier of employees and over 320 CEOs. All full and part-time employees are welcomed to participate, from the mailroom staff to the CEO. All levels of fitness are welcomed too. Beginners and walkers participate in the event, taking as much time as needed to complete the 3.1 mile course while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and perhaps lead their corporate team to victory!
Companies compete for top honors in 18 different industry categories. Awards go to the overall male, female, and mixed teams. The top male, female, and mixed team in each of the categories receives medals. Awards are also given for the T-Shirt Contest winners and the largest team.
