Three men in their 50s, who have walked together monthly for about 10 years, wanted to challenge themselves. They signed up for a free 100km round-the-island overnight trek, which began on Saturday at Raffles Place.

"We wanted to gain a sense of accomplishment, but we also believe in teamwork and encouraged one another," said technical officer Ong Chin Bok, 56.

Together with retiree Steven Chee, 59, and Mr Alex Quah, 54, they were among the 7 who completed the walk as of 10pm yesterday, out of more than 150 people who had started. 27 made it to the 50km mark at Waterway Point in the north-east at Punggol.
