Corporate Challenge teams are required to have five (5) participate in each event plus two (2) substitutes as most teams will have team members to allow for bathroom breaks, etc.
In addition to the five (5) plus two (2) substitutes, each team may provide a minimum of two volunteers for the event. These volunteers will be used in various roles throughout the event (e.g. assisting at an event, selling refreshment tickets, parking control, etc.).
Our volunteer coordinator will contact your teams’ volunteers via email to ensure they are signed up for the volunteer activity of their choice. All volunteers will be provided with lunch, two refreshment tickets and a volunteer t-shirt; and will participate in a fun-filled day while helping our charity to meet its fundraising goals.

If you have participated in Windsor Corporate Challenge before we recommend telling your team members about your first-hand experience and all the fun you had! If this if your first year participating, we recommend that you show your team our poster, send out emails to keep your team members engaged, and set up meetings to keep track of your team’s fundraising activities and goal.
There are a variety of events you will be participating in on game day. Some of the events are physical, some will challenge your mind, and some involve water!
Despite our best laid plans, life can sometimes get in the way and team members may need to bow out of the event. This is why we recommend having two substitutes on your team. Additionally, you can substitute out a team member as long as they complete their online registration using the Race Roster portal.
You add additional team members by visiting the Windsor Corporate Challenge website and registering them. This must be done at least five (5) days before the event date, as these new members will need to sign off on waiver and get their wristband.
We’re sorry to see you go but we understand. Even with the best intentions sometimes our plans do not come to fruition. We will take care of removing your team from our registration database.
As for the registration fee…. you can transfer your registration fee to a donation and a charity tax receipt will be issued OR if you withdrawing your team 30 days prior to the event we can issue a refund cheque. Please advise which option your team would prefer. Please note that the Windsor Corporate Challenge is unable to issue a refund if we are within 30 days of the event due to logistical reasons.
If you would still like to participate in the event, we can always use extra volunteers. If you are interested, please let us know.
This is not a goodbye but a see you soon. Hopefully, your team will sign up for next year’s event.

- Final waiver sign off
- Sweet Sweet Swag 🙂
You are required to pick up your participant registration swag bag and sign the waiver to legally be allowed to participate.
All participant registration swag bag must be picked up the day BEFORE the event. To assist in this process, team members can visit one of the two following locations for pick up:
- The Job Shoppe, 12137 Tecumseh Rd. E., Tecumseh On, N8N 1M2 between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm
- Vollmer Complex, 2121 Laurier Pkwy, Windsor, ON N9J 0B4 between 8:00 am to 7:00 pm
If each one of the over 1,500 participants decided to pick up their participation kit on the day of the event, there would be an extreme delay. This would affect start times, schedules, and ultimately the whole day. The Windsor Corporate Challenge WILL NOT BE ISSUING participant registration swag bag on the day of the event.
Unfortunately, Team Captains or any other Team Members CAN NOT pick up other team member’s participant registration swag bag because of the final waiver involves crosschecking ID as this is a licensed event. All participants must have their wristband applied by a Windsor Corporate Challenge committee member.
Wristbands are required to verify that you are 19 years of age. Because the Windsor Corporate Challenge is a liquor licensed event, you must be 19 years of age to take part.
Due to fire regulations, you CAN NOT bring a barbeque onsite. We prefer that you purchase food from our onsite vendor(s) either with your team’s pre-order or during the designated lunch break onsite. All proceeds from food sales will go towards the charity.
