  • Looking for a challenge? To hill or not to hill... on April 10th you can choose between two competitive race distances- the timed 10k and the timed 5k!
  • Looking for more variety? Participate in one of our untimed races! Register for the untimed 5k, untimed 1 mile, or Kids Run 100 Yard Dash to join in the fun!

Race packets will be distributed to team captains and participants during Packet Pickup in April 2022. Check our “Important Dates” (link) tab for up to date information! Contact Heather Johnson, Heather.Johnson@Lung.org with questions.

If for some reason you cannot complete the course, someone at the nearest aid station can assist you. In Aksarben Village, the main medical tent is located just beyond the finish line. For the safety of all participants, only those requiring medical assistance will be allowed access into the medical tent. If you require medical assistance on the race course, please find the nearest volunteer and let them know that you’d like to drop out of the course. Our emergency preparedness team will get you the assistance you need.

Because of the extensive planning and number of volunteers needed for an event of this magnitude, this event will not be postponed due to weather conditions. The Corporate Cup will happen RAIN or SHINE!

In the event that a cancellation or alteration will take place, the American Lung Association will notify you via e-mail. We will also update the home page of our website, and post on our social media channels.

The American Lung Association is committed to the health and safety of our participants and volunteers. Therefore, we will continue to closely monitor public local health conditions and CDC guidelines. In order to appropriately protect our participants' well-being and the community at large, the American Lung Association reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or alter the 2022 Corporate Cup.
