After another tremendous year, TeamFootWorks, producers of the highly-anticipated Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, announced registration for the 2020 5K Run/Walk is in now open. With more than 38,000 participants in 2019, the race series will once again take over South Florida with three runs beginning in Fort Lauderdale on April 2, continuing in West Palm Beach on April 15 and concluding in Miami on April 23. The United Way (Broward County, Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County) continues to be the annual race series’ charity partner.

With registration now in full swing, team captains are rallying their workplace teams to engage in another year of fun and healthy competition. It’s so gratifying to see so many South Florida companies continue to embrace health and wellness as part of their workplace culture. We believe that healthy employees create healthy companies; add to that a race filled with smiles and camaraderie – that’s what the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is all about,” said Laurie Huseby, race director.
