Singapore, 30 August 2015 – It is official and no surprise to many that Team Superman emerged the winner of the inaugural DC Justice League Run 2015 which was held earlier this morning. Taking place at Sentosa’s Interim Carpark, more than 5,000 runners turned up sporting the colours and gears, in support of their favourite superheroes, and were raring to go by the time the flag-off took place at 8am.
For the first time ever, competition surged between the Justice League superheroes, who are commonly known to band together to vanquish the forces of evil. In a bid to determine the fastest of the League, sides were taken as participants ran 5 KM to represent their respective superheroes, all but to bring honour and glory to the team.
Team Flash supported the fastest superhero of the league, or so they believed; Team Wonder Woman was all about girl power in their allegiance to the Amazonia Princess, Team Batman was outspoken in their support for the Dark Knight, and Team Green Lantern believed in the peacekeeper of the intergalactic Lantern Corps.
With an average finisher nett time of 31 mins 10 secs, Team Superman settled the age-old debate by proving that the Last Son of Krypton is indeed worthy of the title. Proud to be part of the winning team, Jian Yang, 35, quipped “I joined the DC Justice League run as I’m a big superhero fan and for my first run, I had a really enjoyable experience. The race was recreational, well-organised and it was great to see Singaporeans just letting loose and having fun.”
Apart from the friendly competition, there was much more to cheer about as participants, friends and families were treated to a morning of fun-filled fringe activities such as Gladiator* and Trampoline*.
