eMarketer’s Chris Bendtsen Wins JP Morgan Corporate Challenge For Second Year

New York, NY – In a nail-biting finish to this year’s JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, eMarketer forecasting analyst Chris Bendtsen took home the gold, finishing the 5K race in an astounding 15 minutes and 22 seconds.  This is Bendtsen’s second year in a row winning the race.  He says his focus while training this year was about speed, which served him well.  He shaved six seconds off of last year’s time.


“It all came down to the sprint finish, as expected,” says Bendtsen.

Bendtsen sprinted the last half-mile, catching up to the first place runner and ending the race in a photo-finish.  After careful review, officials declared Bendtsen the winner.

Bendtsen was joined by 47 of his colleagues, a record turnout for eMarketer.


“I’m proud of everyone from eMarketer who competed,” says Bendtsen.  “I’m impressed that so many people participated.  I’m happy to be a part of the company-wide accomplishment.  That’s the best part for me.”
