Use the below questions to help you get started:
1. Will you participate individually or as a team (up to 7 people)?
2. Will you participate at a location (CBD, Mawson Lakes, Semaphore) or virtually (KM Tracker)?
3. What category will you enter?
- If participating in the CBD or Mawson Lakes, you can choose between most improved (aim to improve your time each round) or fastest (aim to run your quickest time each round).
- If participating at Semaphore, this is the virtual most improved category only (aim to improve your time each round).
- If participating virtually, this is the KM Tracker category – aim to walk/run as many kms as possible during the 7 rounds, hitting targets to unlock achievements.
4. If you are participating as a team, get your team’s details ready.
A. Decide on a team name – we love the creative ones!
B. For each person in the team you need their:
- Email address
- Age bracket (e.g. under 18/19-29/30s/40s/50s/60s/70+)
- T-shirt size
- If it is their first time participating
- If participating in CBD, which distance? [2.2km, 4.5km or 7.2km]
- If participating at Mawson Lakes or Semaphore, which distance? [2.25km or 4.5km]
C. Designate a team captain

5. You are ready to register! Click HERE to begin registering your team – you will need to create an account.
If you are registered for the Most Improved or Fastest Category, you run on the dates specified in the Locations tab. If you are registered for the KM Tracker Category you may begin accumulating your kilometres on Wednesday 3 August.
All participants registered for the Most Improved or Fastest categories in the City or Mawson Lakes must have a timing card. All other locations and categories must use 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.
Staff will be on site at 2 locations for 7 fortnights: City: 6am – 6pm Mawson Lakes: 6.30am – 1.30pm This year, if you are competing in Most Improved in Semaphore, you must complete your run on the day indicated in the locations tab.
City Event: 6.00pm is the last time you can start your run or walk from Karrawirra, Adelaide (next to Lounders Boatshed Cafe). Mawson Lakes 1.30pm is the last time you can start your run or walk. If you are competing in Most Improved in Semaphore, you may start your run at any time as long as it is on the day indicated in the locations tab.
Staff will provide you with a temporary timing card or will assist you with recording your time manually.
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.
Team members may only race at different regions if the team has registered for the KM Tracker Category.
Yes, you can! However, there are some circumstances to consider before doing so:
- 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.
- 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 reasoning behind this is that, if you were running the 4.5km instead of the 7.2km, your base time from completing 4.5km would be too quick to complete 7.2km, and not allow you to receive maximum points on your future runs. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times. If you forget or do not have your card on the day, notify a staff member so that we can manually record your time. No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times. If you forget or do not have your card on the day, notify a staff member so that we can manually record your time. If you are participating virtually (KM tracker or Semaphore), you need to record your times/distances via the results portal.
Due to safety reasons you cannot participate in the event for somebody else nor can somebody else participate in the event for you. If you have more than 5 people in your team, missing a run will not affect your score if everyone else participates that round.
Please see the Locations tab for parking options.
In the City and Mawson Lakes, a baggage marquee will be set up with an IN and OUT entrance. Participants can only enter the marquee one at a time and leave their belongs at their own risk. We highly recommended not bringing any belongings with you to the sites. As for your keys, we suggest bringing your car key only and storing it in your ID card lanyard, wearing a bum bag or wearing some shorts that have a zip pocket.
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:
- The ability to use a GPS running app to record times (excluding City and Mawson Lakes)
- Set up of additional infrastructure and signage to ensure everyone is able to keep 1.5m apart
- New, more flexible KM Tracker Category
- Converting the Semaphore location into a virtual event

KM Tracker Category
Corporate Cup’s KM Tracker category is a new, improved and more flexible version of the participant category where runners and walkers aim to build up as many km’s as possible in the fortnight between rounds! You may choose to run once a fortnight as usual or you can choose to incorporate additional runs in the fortnight, it’s up to you.
Anywhere you like! You are not required to be onsite for this category and can build up kms wherever it is most convenient for you.
Anytime between the fortnightly rounds starting 3rd August 2022, day or night!
Each round, there are 3 target categories: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Teams are to work together to try and reach the minimum kms to reach their desired target category. Individuals may also try and reach the minimum kms of each category. Each round the minimum kms change for each category. Bronze is the lowest category, Silver is the second highest and Gold as the highest km category. Targets will be posted to the KM Tracker page of the website and will be viewable each round on your profile. The team with the most kms accumulated at the end of Corporate Cup will win the KM Tracker perpetual trophy.
Great to hear! All you need is a device to track the distance you run/walk (you don’t have to pay for anything extra, you can use a Fitbit, smartwatch, pedometer or download a free app to your phone like Strava or Map my run). When you start your run/walk, start your tracker and then stop when you’re finished. Head to the Corporate Cup results portal, sign in and upload the distance and time your device recorded along with a screenshot or photo.

Entries close for the city event at 12pm Tuesday, 2 August 2022 and Regions on Monday, 8 August 2022. This deadline enables us to organise race bags, timing tags and t-shirts in time for your first run/walk.
We will notify you when timing tags are ready and provide details on how to retrieve them. T-shirts will be available for pick up from Corporate Cup HQ prior to the event – we will notify when they are ready to be picked up.
Please contact us before sending a courier. We are located at 132 Rose Tce, Wayville and our phone number is 08 8363 5700. Please ask them to quote your team number and your location / whether you are a km tracker upon arrival.
Teams consist of 5 to 7 participants and each participant will receive a score between 5 and 40 each run. Team points for the round are calculated by adding the 5 best individual scores together. The 5 highest total points from these rounds are then used to determine your final score.
There are no points tallied for the fastest category. Instead, each round, an average time is calculated from the fastest 5 participants in your team. Your final time for the program will be calculated by the total average times of your best 6 rounds.
There are no points tallied for the KM Tracker. Instead, your aim is to accumulate as many kilometres as possible throughout the program. For each round, the top 5 team members’ kms are totalled for your weekly score. Your final distance/overall score is the total kms from all 7 rounds.
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.
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.
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.
