The Vermont Corporate Cup Challenge and State Agency Race is a 5 kilometer team running/walking event open to businesses, government and non-profit organizations in Vermont. The purpose of this event is to promote physical fitness within the workplace and at home by bringing employees together to enjoy and experience the benefits of fitness. This annual 5K (walkers or runners) puts forth multiple teams from businesses and organizations all throughout the state!

Once you form your team of three (either all walkers or all runners) register online at www.vcccsar.org, then let Staff Council know that you registered so you can pick up your TEAM UVM tech shirt. Don't have a team of 3? No problem, we provide a match service so you can participate!
