Deutsche Bank was one of the three sponsors of the event, which included a corporate relay for teams of four and an individual race, putting contestants’ stamina and teamwork to the test.
The charity event drew contestants including top international runners and business leaders. The opening ceremony commenced at 9:00 am followed immediately by the corporate relay race, consisting of 48 corporate teams of four runners each. Contestants climbed 2,120 steps and finished at the Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck, rewarded with a spectacular 360-degree view of the city.
