FRANKFURT AM MAIN, January 18, 2010 – Participants of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge (JPMCC) race in Frankfurt am Main on June 9 are encouraged to give their all on the last stretch of the corporate run as FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), will be taking photos of the runners as they head towards the finish line. For the fourth consecutive year, every participant of the race will have the opportunity to have their personal photo finish sent directly to them after the race.
Last year, public interest in the free service offered by FedEx Express was tremendous, with more than 138,000 people visiting the photo finish website following the race. More than 28,000 certificates with photos taken at the finish line were sent out and around 21,000 pictures were sent to friends.
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is a 5.6 km (3.5 mile) race that takes place worldwide. Staff members of companies from different sectors are entitled to participate. In Frankfurt, almost 70,000 runners got together at the starting line in 2009, making it the second biggest running event in the world. Employees from 2,708 organizations, more than 300 German cities and more than 80 countries faced the annual motto of the race: “The friendly competition“.
Interested participants merely need to memorize their time when crossing the finish line on June 9. As early as the following day, they can then look for their photo finish at www.jpmorgancc-fotofinish.de and have it sent to them by e-mail.
