The Fight For Air Corporate Cup is among the largest of corporate road races in the United States. From the first Corporate Cup in 1981, the event has experienced phenomenal success. In that first year, 29 companies entered and 681 runners crossed the finish line.

In 2017, 135 companies entered with more than 5,000 registrants. And area hams, coordinated by the Ak-Sar-Ben Amateur Radio Club have provided communications support to help see those running and walking arrive back at the finish line safely. The event organizers value your participation in support of this large fun raising effort.    Especially with this year's event looking to be even larger.

Amateur Radio volunteers are needed to staff the start and finish lines as well as water stops, turn around points and key intersections along the route.    The day will start about 7:00 to 7:30 am and should be done before noon.    A 5 watt VHF HT with a gain antennas should provide coverage through out the route, although in some locations a mobile might be useful.
