The Day When Everyone On Wall Street Goes For A Run

jamie Dimon running around the world

If you haven’t ever run in the JPMorgan Chase & Co. Corporate Challenge, you should.

It’s a long-distance running event that the company refers to as “the world’s most popular sporting event for the full-time business community.”

What it really is is a chance for everyone to get out of work early, run a few miles, and then go out for drinks, all while raising money for charity!

If you still aren’t convinced, check out these pictures of the fun event.

The firm has corporate teams compete in races that take place in 13 cities across six nations. New York’s race was last week. Find out when your city racesĀ here.

NYC

Fatima Aissaoui of Credit Agricole had the best outfit. Way to crush miles in a skirt!

Team Lazard Freres showed up peppy and ready to run.

Gianpaul Caccia of Wolverine Trading won the first New York race for the men (he's won the race two years in a row)

Frankfurt

These four men kept it classy and ran in polo shirts.

These 4 ran in wigs. It's not the most time efficient strategy (you let off the most heat through your head), but it looks great.
