With numerous running events dotting the calendar in Singapore, the Asics City Relay has distinguished itself by becoming the country's first-ever night marathon relay-only race.
Held at the Sports Hub on Aug 1, Ben Line Agencies sent 8 runners from our Singapore office and having split themselves into two teams, The Ben Line “Beavers” and the Ben Line “Badgers” to take part in the event.
Each team comprising of 4 members had to run one lap of the course around the Sports Hub precinct (approximately 10.5km) with the changeover taking place inside the National Stadium itself. This adds to a grand total of 42.195km ran per team.
The marathon relay brings together the corporates (we were challenged to this run by one of our principals - China Navigation Co.), clubs, students and runners from all over Singapore. With number of teams being capped at 2,000 for a total of 8,000 runners.
Our teams both exceeded their targets for finishing the race in good time. Well Done to all participants of the Beavers and Badgers!
