POINTS - Challenge, Spirit, Participation
The goal of Corporate Challenge is to encourage employee PARTICIPATION, increase company SPIRIT and, of course, provide a little healthy competition! In order to achieve all of this, your team will be rewarded in 3 Point categories: CHALLENGE, SPIRIT and PARTICIPATION.
Here is a breakdown of how our points and rankings work. Check each individual event page for complete details.

4 to 6 = 'moderate' health risk – ALL EVENTS PROCEED but if a team wishes to cancel there is no penalties assessed
7 to 10 = 'high' health risk – OUTDOOR EVENTS MAY BE CANCELLED -- If the event proceeds and teams wish to cancel, no penalties will be assessed.
Above 10 = 'very high' health risk – ALL OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES CANCELLED
