It’s official—and perhaps no surprise to many: the winner and “Fastest Hero of the Year” of the inaugural DC Justice League Run 2015 is none other than Team Superman!
Though they were known to band together to vanquish the forces of evil, competition surged amongst the Justice League superheroes and the titan showdown to determine the swiftest ensued on the morn of Sunday, 30 August 2015.
More than 5,000 runners turned up at Sentosa’s Interim Carpark, enthusiastically dressed in the colours and gears of their favourite superheroes. Once the 5 km race flagged off at 8:00 a.m. sharp, the superheroes’ representatives – a.k.a. participants – dashed neck and neck, all but to bring honour and glory to their teams.
Team Flash fought hard to keep in step with the fastest superhero of the league, or so they believed; Team Wonder Woman was all about girl power in their allegiance to the Amazon Princess; Team Batman rose as one for the Dark Knight; and Team Green Lantern shone in their support for the peacekeeper of the intergalactic Lantern Corps.
Team Superman settled the age-old debate with an average finisher nett time of 31 minutes 10 seconds, thereby proving that the Last Son of Krypton is indeed worthy of the champion title.
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.

After the friendly competition, the excitement extended into the post-race festivities, where participants, friends and families were treated to fun-filled fringe activities such as Gladiator and Trampoline.
