Swire Intra-group Running Competition 2015

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural competition, the Swire Intra-group Running Competition was held on 3rd October 2015 at Pak Shek Kok Promenade, at the Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks. It was a beautiful Saturday morning with perfect weather for running. Around 500 contestants from more than 20 Swire companies entered the competition, which included a 1km relay race and a 10km race open to teams and individuals.

In the 10km Individual and Corporate Team categories, Cathay Pacific was once again a big winner this year, with Fiona So, Jinko Takeshige, David Li and Heung Man-Ho claiming the titles in the Ladies’ Open, Ladies’ Master, Men’s Open and Men’s Master categories. Cathay Pacific also claimed victory in the 10km Corporate Team category, but with runners from Swire Beverages and HAECO hot on their heels to win first and second runner-up positions.

Both Cathay Pacific and Swire Beverages shared the spotlight in the 3 x 1km relay. Cathay Pacific came first in the Ladies and Mixed category, while Swire Beverages won the Men’s category. This year, a Senior Executives category was introduced, and the inaugural winners were Patrick Healy, Peter Mills and Tommy Chan – all from Swire Beverages.
