Booths from several vendors were set up to provide snacks for the runners, including Jersey Mike’s and Philly Pretzel Factory. Richie Maclachlan, representative for Jersey Mike’s said, “We are serving 500 sandwiches after the race.”

Some other vendors in attendance included Runner’s High which offered fittings for the runner’s sneakers. Hollenbach Family Chiropractic ran the “Tune-up Tent” which offered a space for stretching and relaxation.

Eric Clay, 14, finished the race first in 17 minutes and four seconds. He is a rising sophomore from Morristown who ran for BASF. Eric said, “It feels good to win.”

“It’s a great race,” said Joe Jacobs, who ran for Lowenstein Sandler. Jacobs co-owns The Sneaker Factory in Florham Park.

The event was followed by an awards ceremony with multiple prizes given according to each age group and business team.

"It is terrific to see all the corporate running teams participating in Battle of the Business. It is good a way for organizations of any size to build morale, encourage camaraderie, emphasize healthy habits and have fun competing against other NJ companies while contributing to The Children's Institute in Verona at the same time,” said Alan Sobel, managing partner of Sobel & Co. “It is a win-win situation and we are proud to join ADP in this great venture every summer."
