iDaph Offers Businesses the Chance “DU the Corporate Challenge” at the Asheville Duathlon + 10k Trail Run on Biltmore Estate
As an alluring addition to an already provocative multisport event, the Corporate Challenge proffers you the chance to bring glory to your company’s good name and reputation. Participating in this challenge, whether as a soloist or alongside your colleagues, you will have the chance to earn prizes and awards. We further encourage large companies to have multiple teams as part of intra-organizational competitions to further up the ante.
For those wishing to do this, Corporate Challenge individual competitors will complete all three segments of the race themselves, and 3-person relay team members will complete one of three legs: Run #1, Bike Leg, or Run #2.
This Corporate Challenge is all about building relationships, strengthening your team’s work environment, and promoting health, fitness, and fun! Successful business operations are all about getting your team motivated, collaborating, and ready to approach every task with hard-nosed determination and gusto. With all the synergy and excitement you and your team have brought to the business arena, show us the mettle of your organization in the challenge. An event like this is a sure-fire way to bring you employees closer together, both in the race and in the office. It’s gonna be a time to have some clean fun, see your peers on a different level, inspire healthy competition, and a chance to earn some bragging rights. Whether you and your team pull Red Bull and coffee-powered all-nighters, or take a more conservative approach, all (legal) methods are welcome as you display your cohesion and camaraderie in this challenge.
Who Can “Du” the Corporate Challenge?
You may participate in this challenge as a soloist or alongside your colleagues, and we encourage large companies to have multiple teams (read “intra-organizational rivalry”) to further up the ante.

Corporate Challenge individual competitors will complete all three segments of the race themselves, and 3-person relay team members will complete one of three legs: Run #1, Bike Leg, or Run #2.
