Joseph Luc Ngai topped the Leaders Cup that saw Raymond Kwok Ping-luen, Peter Woo Kwong-ching and Paul Chan Mo-po among the powerful figures sweating it out.

Ngai, a senior partner at McKinsey, won the 1.8km race in seven minutes and 29 seconds.

Kwok, 67, chairman and managing director of Sun Hung Kai Properties, ran alongside Financial Secretary Chan.

He was also joined by Woo, the former chairman and current senior counsel of Wheelock and Co.

Woo, 72, finished in 11 minutes and 18 seconds, faster than 39-year-old Kenneth Fok Kai-kong, vice president of Fok Ying Tung Group, who completed it three seconds later.

Fok said his wife, China Olympic diving queen Guo Jingjing, did not come out to watch him run but appreciated her waking up early to show her support.

Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Patrick Nip Tak-kuen ran as well, and later said the weather was pleasant and that he felt relaxed when running.

Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong lawmaker Vincent Cheng Wing-shun, a seven-time marathon runner, took part in the 10km run.

He said many runners in the half marathon category did not expect to have less time to complete the race.

Given that the time was shortened just eight days before the race, Cheng said the organizer "could have done a better job."
