WESTCHESTER CORPORATE CUP 5K SUMMER RACE SERIES
Join us for a run/walk, food, fun , music and fundraising!
The Westchester Corporate Cup 5k Summer Race Series returned to Westchester County and was successfully re-started on July 25th, 2013 after a ten-year hiatus. In its initial year the event was composed of two races and then expanded to the current format of a three race series. The race series features the hilly, scenic perimeter road of the Purchase College of SUNY campus.
The race series is purely a not-for-profit venture conceived as a fun, after-work, team-building event for Westchester corporations and a chance to network with people from other Westchester businesses. These races also offer participating companies a way to promote wellness and to raise money for a worthy local cause.
This event is not an exclusively corporate business event, as individuals, families, and friends that would like to participate for wellness or to support a good cause are welcome to run or walk the event.
The series is underwritten by race entry fees and the sponsorship of companies with a strong presence in the Westchester County business community.
ALL PROCEEDS go to Hope Community Services, a New Rochelle-based organization, which has become the largest emergency food pantry and soup kitchen in the region. Even though Hope has several housing programs, we take pride in highlighting their focus on housing homeless veterans throughout Westchester county through their permanent housing program via the City of New Rochelle Re-housing Initiative (CNR) and the Westchester Continuum of Care. Our organization, Corporate Cup Races, Inc. is an affiliate member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Through the RRCA, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
The weeknight races, held on Wednesday evenings, feature individual men’s, women’s and co-ed corporate team competitions. Runners can compete as individuals or as part of a team, but not both. Teams will be comprised of either three men, three women or a combination of two men and two women.
The race events begin at 6:30 p.m. Due to construction the starting line is being relocated by the W1 Parking lot near the Performing Arts Center (PAC). There will be two water stations along the race route plus food and refreshments at the finish line. Free parking is designated for these races at parking lots W1 & W2.
