Photo Gallery: The Orange 5K Crew Crushes It at the 2022 Syracuse Workforce Run
On a beautiful June evening last week, 112 Syracuse University faculty and staff members participated in the Syracuse Workforce Run, formerly known as the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. The event brings together walkers and runners from workplaces around Syracuse for a night of friendly competition, fitness and camaraderie on a 5K course through Onondaga Lake Park.
Team captain Cole Smith, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, accepted an award on behalf of the University for having the largest team from a single organization, beating out other large employers in the area. Jonathan French, assistant teaching professor of chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences, and Jennifer Collins, budget director for Syracuse University Libraries, held the fastest times among University employees in the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively.
Even those who didn’t place at the top of their division or achieve a personal best time had a whole lot of fun, enjoying food, beverages and photo ops with colleagues before and after a hot and muggy jaunt along the parkway.
