Team RLG takes part in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run

On April 25, Team RLG took part in the Mercedes-Benz Corporate 5K Run Series in Miami. The Series, now in its 28th year, is an institution in South Florida and has become one of the largest 5K races in the nation. It is made up of 3 individual 5K road races that are held in the evening during the work week (Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach & Miami). It spans a period of 30 days.

It began in 1985 as part of the 13-city Manufacturers Hanover Corporate Challenge race series with just a few participants. The first event drew local runners who were hooked on the benefits of running and keeping fit. Back then, there were just a few people that ran 5Ks or marathons. You could count on one hand the companies that had health and wellness programs for their employees. 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 2013, Miami alone drew over 25,000 participants and over 750 companies. It is organized and produced by TeamFootWorks, with one goal in mind: to promote lifelong fitness at all levels and encourage camaraderie in the workplace through healthy, happy employees as evidenced by our joyous group!
