Dust off your shoes and knot your laces! It might look a bit different this year but we hope we can 'jog' your memory with this challenge!

About the Event

While we're disappointed we won't be inflating our giant race arch this September, we're looking forward to continuing our first-ever ROSEN Run Challenge, a CCC monthly challenge that will keep our runners running! This event is all about options: Participants will run a 5K and/or 10K, on a CCC Route and/or wherever their running shoes take them. Have we used all forms of "run" enough in this description?

For the this Running Challenge, we have two options. The first option will be to run one of the CCC set routes; each month we will be releasing two new running routes - 5km and 10km - that we will make available to view on our Calgary Corporate Challenge Strava page.

5KM Route -Β View on Strava

10KM Route -Β View on Strava

The second option will be an open route, so participants can run any route they'd like. This means it can be run somewhere more local or even at home on a treadmill.

Why Extraordinary Circumstances?

We've been hearing it for awhile now and, even though it's been roughly 1000 years in self-isolation, it remains true: We are living in unprecedented times. Due to the ever-evolving situation with COVID-19, and with our participants' safety at the forefront, the September Games are no longer viable. Unlike Ross Geller though, we've managed to "PIVOT!".

What's better than 16 days of events?Β 3 monthsΒ of events! Calgary Corporate Challenge remains committed to providing our participating companies opportunities to promote teamwork, community building, employee engagement, and networking. We are proud to present aΒ brand newΒ slate of events in theseΒ Extraordinary Circumstances.

What will the 2020 CCC Games: Extraordinary Circumstances look like?

Much like the September Games, Extraordinary Circumstances will be a mixed bag of 'Sports' Events, Monthly Challenges, and Special/Social Events, all designed to bring people together! From July to September, CCC will be hosting numerous tournaments and facilitating challenges to get people active and connecting. What are you waiting for?

So who can participate in Extraordinary Circumstances?

In an effort to get even more of your company involved, CCC has eased restrictions on employee participation. Does your office have 40 people who want to participate in trivia? Great, 10 teams it is! Is the entire office going to compete in the Suncor Step Challenge? The more the merrier! Plus, for the first time, every employee from any Canadian office of a registered company is invited to join in. Surprise! Virtual & digital events have far fewer participation limits.

How will I connect with my coworkers and other participants?

Discord will be our main form of communication during events! (See the next FAQ for more)

ZoomΒ will also make an appearance at some of our events. While we're familiar with the perils of "Zoom fatigue", we promise these events won't feel like just another Zoom meeting!

We also strongly encourage our Company Captains and Team Captains to foster these relationships and connections by organizing their own remote team huddles. We want the spirit of the September Games to live on through these events, so get those happy hour drinks flowing and look at how your team measures up on our Event Leaderboards!

What is Discord?

Discord is easy, intuitive, and it's free! We will useΒ Discord ServersΒ to get many of our tournaments organized, but the channels will also remain open for our participants to stay connected throughout the events. Who couldn't use a little more human interaction these days?

What's the difference between an Event and a Challenge?

Events will take place on a specific date & time. Challenges follow a "do-it-yourself" model and can be done at your convenience within a certain time frame!

Are there trophies and medals to be won this year?

Yes, Spirit Trophies are on the line! Divisional Trophies and Medals will not be awarded this year, but that doesn't mean there won't still be winners. Bragging rights are still up for grabs.

More information about the following will be provided as soon as possible:

Special Events including the Design Challenge, CEO Challenge, Halftime Party, and Closing Ceremony
