A total of 14,256 runners from 387 companies took part in last week’s J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Singapore. The annual event is a highly competitive road race that sees runners run 5.6km, from the National Gallery to the F1 Pit Building.
It’s not an event to be taken lightly, as the competitors will attest to. Teams are assembled months before the actual event and can be seen training in the evenings around the CBD every day. The top places are always a closely fought affair.
This year’s individual winning medal was shared, as Gen Lin Foo and Joshua Li, both from MOH Holdings, crossed the finish line together with a time of 19:15.
Keeping with tradition, J.P. Morgan will make a charitable donation on behalf of all participants. This year’s beneficiary is the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS). MINDS caters to the needs of persons with intellectual disabilities (PWIDs) and had a number of runners participating.
