Q: What is the difference in participation events and competitive events?
A: Participation events are open to all employees. Signing up for participation events — which includes the 1-mile Fitness Walk, 5K Run, 10K Bike Stroll and Jump Rope Contest — automatically qualifies you to compete. Teams may enter unlimited employees and points are awarded based on participation.
Competitive events have limited rosters, and points are awarded for first, second and third place. Signing up for a competitive event means you are interested in being considered for the team roster. Visit bhamcorporatechallenge.com for a full list of competitive events.
Q: How will I know if I’m selected for a competitive event?
A: Employees who have been selected to participate in a competitive event will be notifed by their Team Captain after the March 23 registration deadline. Team rosters will be posted on the corporate challenge webpage on Friday, March 30.
Q: What if I’m not an athlete?
A: We want you! Whether you’re a couch potato, weekend warrior or regular competitor, you’re invited! There are several events that employees can join in order to earn points for our team, regardless of your athletic ability.
Q: Is there really a belt?
A: Yes! The first-place overall winner in each division collects their much-deserved Birmingham Corporate Challenge hardware at an awards luncheon the week after the event. This year, we want UAB to be the one bringing home the belt!

Want to be a Team Captain?

To bring home the belt, we need strong captains to lead our teams to victory. Captain responsibilities include organizing team practices, building comradery and coordinating day-of logistics. There are many events to choose from — from dodgeball and bowling to tug-of-war.

The Employee Wellness team will manage recruitment, but captains will have a strong say in team lineups to help us stack talent and bring home the belt!
