What begins as a race turns into a full-blown company-wide team bonding experience.
There are races, and then there’s Urban Stampede. See, we took it upon ourselves to design the perfect engagement opportunity for companies across India. What was the result? We ended up getting more than we asked for.
Urban Stampede has been credited by corporates for boosting team performance, employee fitness and morale to name a few. It’s the runners who show up year after year, that stand testament to the lure of Urban Stampede:
In August 2015, my previous company – Goldman Sachs won the mixed category. RFL has been doing a wonderful job over the past few years and has a great history backing it up. The corporate relay as a team event poses a chance for networking across silos within organizations as they send the best teams to the Urban Stampede: Goldman Sachs had a selection round prior to race day! The event on a whole is best recommended to help corporate India in its Fitness revolution.

To simply rephrase, having your employees run together could be incredibly valuable—it may help them perform better as a team. The corporate relay race is a stand-out feature at the Urban Stampede, and for good reason. It’s where team bonding took a whole new meaning for hundreds of employees:
The corporate relay was the main draw of the event because it got all the colleagues together, and we run with known faces, and like-minded people. It’s comforting to run with people whom you work with often as they are facing the same corporate world related issues. This team activity builds motivation. Cisco has been running at the Urban Stampede for 5 years now, and won the podium in one of the events as well.

Give your employees something new to talk about at the water cooler – The 5k they ran at the weekend or how their race training schedule is going. Also, do you know that runners make the best employees? They’re good at commitment – runners train through adverse weather, follow a strict training plan, watch their diet, and spend countless hours running, just to set a new personal record. If that is not commitment then we don’t know what is!
So, there you have it. Those are the benefits you can reap by signing your company up for the Urban Stampede. A city race that started 11 years ago, that helped over 27,000 people from 1050 companies in 7 cities realize that their first real run leads to many miles of joy! Don’t believe us?
