COVID-19

Will the social distancing rules be followed?

Absolutely! We are strictly following the guidance provided by the Australian Government Department of Health and SA Health. Changes to the event have been made to allow for all participants and staff to social distance including:

·       Launching Mobile Start Points

·       Introducing the ability to use a GPS running app to record times

·       Set up of additional infrastructure and signage to ensure everyone is able to keep 1.5m apart

·       Introducing a new, more flexible KM Tracker Category

·       Moving our City location to the larger, open space at Pinky Flat

What if I have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19/am showing symptoms?

You must stay home if you:

·       Have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days

·       Have been overseas or exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days

If you are required to stay in isolation for 14 days you must not attend the Corporate Cup. You will only miss one round and can continue to compete when you come out of isolation.

Is it safe for me to attend the Corporate Cup?

It is 100% safe to attend the Corporate Cup. We are strictly following the guidance provided by the Australian Government Department of Health and SA Health. Please follow this link to find out more about the ways in which the Corporate Cup are following COVID-19 guidelines.

General Event Details

Is there an exact date we need to run from?

If you are registered for the Most Improved or Fastest Category, you must start your fortnightly runs from the date specified in the Locations tab. If you are registered for the KM Tracker Category you may begin accumulating your kilometres on Wednesday 5 August.

Do I need to use a timing card?

You do not need to use a timing card in 2020. Participants in all categories can choose to track their run using a GPS running app.

Note: If you are in the Most Improved or Fastest Category you MUST stick to the location and course you register with.

What are the track opening times?

The flexibility of this year’s Corporate Cup means that you can complete your run whenever you like using our Mobile Start Points and a GPS Running App. However, staff will be on site at 4 locations for 7 fortnights for those who choose to use a timing card:

City: 6am – 6pm
Mawson Lakes: 6.30am – 1.30pm
Glenelg and Semaphore: 11am – 1.30pm

What is the latest time I can start my run or walk?

City Event: 6.00pm is the last time you can start your run or walk from Pinky Flat, North Adelaide.

Regional Events: 1.30pm is the last time you can start your run or walk for all regions.

What if I forget my timing tag?

You can either choose to download a GPS running app to record your time or staff will assist you in recording your time manually.

Do team members have to race at the same time?

No. In fact we encourage team members to avoid running in groups to allow for social distancing. We recommend running in pairs while keeping a 1.5m distance.

Can team members race at different regions during the event?

Team members may only race at different regions if the team has registered for the KM Tracker Category.

Can I change my distance?

Yes, you can! However, there are some circumstances to consider before doing so:

  1. If you are registered for a shorter distance (i.e. 2.75km) but have been running a longer distance (i.e. 4.5km) and want to keep running the 4.5km, then the process is simple and can be changed easily.
  1. If you are registered for a longer distance (i.e. 7.2km) and have been running at this distance but would like to change to a shorter distance (i.e. 4.5km), your previous times will be deleted.

You will essentially be noted as a DNF (Did Not Finish, 00.00). This means you will receive attendance points, but no base time. Your base time will then be established the next time you run.

The reason why this happens is because if you were running the 4.5km instead of the 7.2km, for example, your base time would be much too fast because you would be finishing earlier due to the shorter course.

If you have competed at the wrong distance or wish to change, we request that participants contact us as soon as possible so it can be corrected. Please email: rosa-lee@enventive.com.au.

Can I email/phone my run time in?

No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times.

If you forget or do not have your card on the day, you can download a GPS running app to record your time. Otherwise, you must notify a Corporate Cup staff member so that we can manually record your time.

I cannot do the run this week; can I get a fill in?

Due to safety reasons you cannot participate in the event for somebody else nor can somebody else participate in the event for you.

What parking options are available?

Please see the Locations tab for parking options.

Where can I store my bag/keys?

This year the Corporate Cup will be a contactless event. In the interest of our participants and staff we will no longer have a place to hold bags/keys. This is due to the high risk of physical contact that is involved with these areas of the event.

We suggest leaving your bag at your office. As for your keys, we suggest bringing your car key only and storing it in your ID card lanyard, using a bum bag or wearing some shorts that have a zip pocket.

Other Questions

When do entries close?

Entries close for the city event at 12pm Tuesday, 4 August 2020 and Regions on Monday, 10 August 2020. This deadline enables us to organise race bags, timing tags and t-shirts in time for your first run/walk.

When will my timing tags and race bag be ready?

We will send your timing tags through the post (please let us know if you have multiple teams so that we can send them out all together)

Early birds who have opted in for a free t-shirt will be able to pick up their shirts from Corporate Cup HQ (158 Payneham Road, Evandale) prior to the event – time TBA.

If I am sending a courier to collect my race bag, what details will they need to know?

Please contact us before sending a courier.

We are located at 158 Payneham Rd, Evandale and our phone number is 8362 2150. Please ask them to quote your team number and your race region upon arrival.

How are points tallied?

Teams consist of 5 to 7 participants and team points are scored by adding the 5 best individual scores together each fortnight. The 5 highest team points from these runs are then used to determine your final score.

What if I miss a run?

If you miss a week it will only affect your personal result.

Please do not run with someone else’s card as this will not reflect their true time and does not help them in future runs.

Will that affect the team score?

It will only affect your personal result assuming 5 other members in your team have competed, and then the overall team tally will not be affected.

If I am looking to qualify for the Fastest Runner categories, how many runs must I complete?

To be eligible in the Fastest Runner categories, you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 6 runs.

This differs to individual points, whereby you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 5 runs, not including the first week.

How do I find my results?

Go the to Results page (where you can also view previous years results) once the program has finished. You can also print out your Certificate of Merit from the Results page.

What if I lose/damage my timing tag?

A replacement tag can be ordered and sent out to you for $5. Please email rosa-lee@enventive.com.au to place an order.

What if I have more questions on the day?

Do not hesitate to email rosa-lee@enventive.com.au or give us a call at the Corporate Cup office on 08 8362 2156.

What should I be wearing for each run or walk?
