Edmonton Corporate Challenge - the two week Olympic-style competition - kicks off May 22, 2019. Competitors from every corner of our campuses will compete in events from bunnock to badminton to bowling (and a suite of other events that don't begin with 'b').

If you're the type that has to suppress your competitive streak around the workplace, team registration is still open - and you can skip straight to #7 below. But if breaking a sweat isn't really your thing, well…. no sweat! There are still plenty of options for joining in the fun.

Here are 6 other ways to participate in this year's Corporate Challenge:

It takes about 1,800 volunteers to run Corporate Challenge each year. Volunteers help with everything from registration, to scorekeeping, to marshalling races - and most of the shifts are a manageable 4 hours long.

You can sign up to volunteer here.
