Relay Majulah, Singapore’s first-ever 2,000km relay, was completed on Sunday evening (Nov 10) with Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan-Jin running the final 10km of the relay.

A ground-up initiative to challenge 200 runners to complete the nation-wide relay in 200 hours, Relay Majulah raised more than S$1.6 million in support of the 67 charities under the President’s Challenge, exceeding its target of S$1 million.

Mr Tan finished off the relay by running into MES Theatre at Mediacorp Campus during the live televised President’s Star Charity Show. At the show, Mr Tan handed over the baton to President Halimah Yacob on air.
