  • Teams must have a minimum of 4 runners
  • The winners will be decided by an accumulative position of the first 4 runners from Corporate Teams to cross the finishing line
  • A runner can only enter for one team either,

 Corporate Challenge Guidelines

The idea of this event staged within the DkIT Dundalk 10k is to enable companies to engage with their employees promoting team spirit, fundraising whilst promoting their brand within a community event.

We would like in the spirit of the event to reflect taking part rather than winning and therefore ask that teams should consist only of employees.
