Entering / Eligibility
Participating in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run is easy. First, select the city you wish to participate in. Then clicking the Create a Team link. Finally send your team's link to your co-workers to sign up. Don't forget that you need to join the team too if you plan to participate.
No. The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run is a corporate team event, and you must have a minimum of two men and two women; or four men; or four women; to be able to field a team. These must be full-time employees of your company.
Because many thousands of people enter Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run events, the only way we can properly identify you is by your race number. This becomes critically important in the event of a medical emergency. Our event is also covered extensively by the media and by official event photographers. The bib numbers are used to verify your identity. Your finish time is also tied to the timing chip on the back of the bib. Because of this, race numbers are absolutely non-transferrable.
Please pin it to the front of your shirt (we encourage all participants to wear their company's t-shirt). Do not fold or modify the bib because it will cause the timing chip to fail. If you do not wear a race number, you and your company risk disqualification from the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run.
Absolutely. The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run is an event for all; racers, runners, and walkers. For safety purposes, however, baby strollers (and baby joggers) and non-service dogs are not allowed on the race course.
The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run is open to employers who can field a team with a minimum of either 4 full-time male employees, 4 full-time female employees, or 2 full-time male employees and 2 full-time female employees.
