JOIN US FOR A MONUMENTAL CHALLENGE!
To help improve the health of the Indianapolis working community the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, in collaboration with Apex Benefits, introduced a unique competition in 2014.
The Apex Monumental Challenge is a friendly competition between Indiana-based employers in which points are awarded based on participation in Monumental Races throughout the year. Rather than emphasizing speed, total scores are calculated as a percentage of points earned by participants relative to total employees in the company. New in 2015, families could participate and help score for their companies too!
Finishers earned one point for completing the 5k, two points for completing the Monumental Half Marathon and three points for completing the Monumental Marathon on Saturday, November 7th. New in 2015, one half point was awarded to children who completed the Kids Fun Run. One point was awarded to each person who participated in the Monumental Mile on Thursday, June 4.
In addition, employees are able to earn one half point for their team by volunteering during the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon weekend. Winning organizations receive a traveling trophy, awards luncheon, and intra-company recognition.
Plans are underway for 2016. For more information on enrolling your organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org - there is no cost to enroll!
