Event Details

The Anthem Corporate Run has it all!

Promote health in the workplace, build corporate pride, or just get outdoors with friends! Whether you join us at the Innsbrook Office Park or take part virtually, we invite you to run, walk, network, and have fun at the Anthem Corporate Run on September 23!

Packet Pick-upCorporate Run

Each Team Captain must pick up his or her team’s race packets during one of the designated times (click here). Individuals may also pick up their packet up at these times. A photo ID is required for individual packet pick up. You may pick up a packet for someone else as well, provided you have a copy of their photo ID.

Virtual 5k

It doesn’t matter if you’re super speedy, or if you’re more into a leisurely walk. The most important part is just showing up for your team and spending time with your coworkers (even if it’s virtual)! Run or walk a 5k by Thursday, September 23. Don’t forget to record and submit your time! Virtual participants will be mailed their packets the week of September 16* and will be scored separately from in-person participants.

*Packets are not guaranteed to arrive by race day
