The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series is an institution in South Florida and is one of the largest 5K races in the nation. It’s hard to believe it began in 1985 as part of the Manufacturers Hanover Corporate Challenge race series. Drawing in local runners who were hooked on the benefits of running and keeping fit. Way back then, there were just a few people that ran 5Ks or marathons and you could count on one hand the companies that had health and wellness programs for their employees. Though the first Miami Corporate Challenge had just 1,315 participants, local runners now had a fun event that they could share with their co-workers and participation grew exponentially over time. In 2015, Miami alone drew 27,601 participants and over 888 companies.
TeamFootWorks, the producers of the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series, is proud of the changes and growth of the event throughout its history. The Series broke the 10,000 participant mark in 1994 and surpassed 20,000 participants just three short years later in 1997 and 30,000 in 2013! The Series continues to grow drawing 33,593 in 2014 and 36,643 in 2015.
