Jason Ream of event owner and operator JP Morgan Chase (17:59) and Heather Prekop (19:20), representing Euromonitor International, were the overall winners on Thursday night at the 29th annual JC Morgan Chase Corporate Classic run in Chicago. It was the first Corporate Challenge triumph for either runner in the 3.5-mile race that had 19,865 finishers from 557 businesses.
“I've won races before, but never one of this size,” said Prekop, who topped Jean Marinangeli of Porsche by 10 seconds in the women's competition. Bob Mathews of RBS was second among men in 18:04.
