Hurricanes Hit the Streets for the Largest-Ever Miami Corporate Run

UM News

MIAMI, Fla. (April 28, 2017) – With a future ophthalmologist leading the way, nearly 2,000 University of Miami employees donned running shoes last Thursday and hit the streets of downtown Miami for the 33rd running of the Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run. John Hinkle, a first-year resident at the University of Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute who competed in cross-country and track at Yale and attended medical school at Penn, covered the 3.1-mile course in a blistering 15 minutes 46 seconds, outrunning the entire field of 28,104 men and women from 846 companies—an event record—to capture first place. UM’s contingent of 1,982 employees was the second largest team in the field, which started the race amid a shower of colorful confetti. UM’s Central Billing Office won the President’s Cup Challenge for having the largest UM team—117 registered participants. View the slideshow.

Team UM Runs Past the Pack at Corporate Run

Team UM Runs Past the Pack at Corporate Run

UM News

MIAMI, Fla. (April 29, 2016) — Turning off their computers and putting projects and other responsibilities on temporary hold, more than 1,900 University of Miami employees left work a little early last Thursday, descending on downtown Miami to show off their U pride in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run.

In all, more than 26,500 employees from 860 companies participated in this year’s event. But it was Team UM, wearing bright orange T-shirts with the familiar split U logo on the back, which took top honors as the largest team at the event, surpassing longtime race leader Baptist Health.

“Largest team, that’s pretty significant,’’ Leah Harman, the small-boat manager for marine operations at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, told The Miami Herald. “From the top down, this University always promotes health and well-being and brought that culture to all of us.”

The University funds a portion of the event entry fee for faculty and staff, provides Well ’Canes points toward health insurance reimbursements, and promotes a Corporate Run T-shirt design contest that awards the winner with a $100 gift certificate to the UM Bookstore and a framed T-shirt signed by UM President Julio Frenk.

Team Bascom Palmer, with 80 participants, won the President’s Cup Office Challenge, awarded to the UM sub-team with the most participants. View the slideshow.
