Doral schedules first Corporate Run

December 6, 2017 by  

Downtown Doral’s Skyros Sports is organizing the first-ever run designed especially for businesspeople.

Walkers and runners from companies in the city are invited to take part in the Doral Corporate Run, a 5K run/walk event to take place in Downtown Doral Park on 53rd Street.

The run is the idea of Ruben Figueredo, who is the CEO of RaceTime. He says the city has a dynamic workforce but no events that encourage team-building, wellness activity outside their offices. He encourages not only individuals, but company teams to join the run.

There will be a prize for the ‘Fastest Company in Doral’, as well as prizes for both the top CEOs and full-time employees for each gender. Teams must consist of at least four people, with two men and two women at the minimum.

Individual runners are encouraged to enter, with 20% of their registration fees going directly to one of the race’s charity partners. These include Feeding South Florida, the Organization for Autism Research, and the Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital Network. Race organizers also ask that participants bring canned food or nonperishable food items to benefit Feeding South Florida.

The run will be tomorrow, December 7, at 6.30 pm, on a closed course that winds through the city’s downtown.

Fun events like this can be even more special if organizers create seasonal, festive banners to decorate the course.
