The Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup Challenge Presented by
The Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup
In 2016 we added a new competition to the TD Bank Reedy River Run with the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup Challenge. Named in honor of the late Greenville Track Club administrator who was instrumental in developing the Corporate Shield program, This competition is open to all business corporations and is for actual employees only (not spouses or children of employee). This competition is part of the 10K event only.
Their will be two challenges: 1st Challenge The "fastest" corporate team will win the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup and special awards for each scoring member (six) of the team. Scoring will be based on the total time of the top six finishers for each corporate team. To encourage participation, for each additional finisher up to ten (after the top 6 finisher/scorers) per corporate team that finishes under 75 minutes for the 10K a bonus of 30 seconds will be subtracted from the total combined time of the top six finishers.
For example: Team XYZ has six finishers with times of 36:15, 39:45, 42:30, 45:00, 47:30 and 50:00 that produce a combined total time of 15660 seconds or 261 minutes. They also have ten additional finishers under the 75 minute limit, which each contribute a "bonus" time deduction of 30 seconds; which would be a total of 300 seconds (or 5 minutes). Subtracting the "bonus" deduction the official combined time for Team XYZ is 255 minutes (actual scoring will be done to the seconds level).
FAST Facts: Each corporate team has six (6) scoring members. Members must be full or part-time employees of the corporate team that they register. Every corporate team member after the first six finishers (up to ten) who finishes under 75 minutes receives a 30-second bonus (to subtract from the combined overall time of the first six (scoring) finishers. The "bonus" time reduction is limited to ten finisher under 75 minutes per team for a maximum bonus time reduction of 300 seconds (5 minutes).
2nd Challenge The company team with the most participation will win the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup for best participation. This will be determined by the most finishers under 75 minutes in the 10K event from each participating company.

2018 Recap & Results
ScanSource not only repeated as winners of the "Most Finishers Under 75 Minutes in the 10K" category, but also defeated two-time defending champion GE to win the "Fastest Corporate Team" category, too.
In its third year, the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup Challenge is named in memory of the late Greenville Track Club administrator who devoted much of his later life to promoting fitness through running in the Greenville community. The Challenge has two categories: one for the "Fastest Corporate Team" and the other for the "Most Finishers Under 75 minutes". The Fastest Team competition calculates the six fastest finishers times for an aggregate total and then subtracts a time bonus of 30 seconds for each additional team finisher under 75 mins (with a maximum of 10 counted toward the bonus).
