SINGAPORE: A record number of more than 16,000 runners competed in the 11th edition of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge.
Organisers said the event has grown almost 60 per cent compared to 2009, when it attracted just under 10,000 entrants.
Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin and Channel NewsAsia presenters Patrick Fok and Steve Lai, were among the runners this year.
The 5.6km race began on the Esplanade Bridge and finished adjacent to the F1 Pit Building at Marina Bay.
Runners from 356 companies competed across five categories.
Another record was created by accounting firm Deloitte. The company won the largest participation award with a whopping 892 entrants, the largest from a single company in the history of the event. - CNA/ac
