Tens of thousands of runners and walkers are expected to participate in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Verizon, Thursday, Apr. 23, on a 5K (3.1-mile) course through the streets of Downtown Miami. Race begins promptly at 6:45 p.m. in Bayfront Park, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd.
Known as “Florida’s Largest Office Party,” the run, now in its 30th year, is open to employees of businesses, corporations, government agencies, financial institutions and non-profits — regardless of company size — and incorporates a special competition to award the overall men’s, women’s and co-ed teams in 20 different industries.
Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends and gain inspiration and motivation to continue walking and running to improve overall health, while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine among their co-workers and lead the corporate team to victory. As part of the tricounty race circuit, a portion of the proceeds from the Miami run will benefit United Way.
Since its inception in 1985, the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series has grown to include more than 33,000 participants and attracts more than 1,200 South Florida companies.
Entry fee is $40 per participant and no registrations will be accepted after Mar. 26.
