    MIAMI, Fla. (April 28, 2017) – With a future ophthalmologist leading the way, nearly 2,000 University of Miami employees donned running shoes last Thursday and hit the streets of downtown Miami for the 33rd running of the Mercedes-Benz Miami Corporate Run. John Hinkle, a first-year resident at the University of Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Institute who competed in cross-country and track at Yale and attended medical school at Penn, covered the 3.1-mile course in a blistering 15 minutes 46 seconds, outrunning the entire field of 28,104 men and women from 846 companies—an event record—to capture first place. UM’s contingent of 1,982 employees was the second largest team in the field, which started the race amid a shower of colorful confetti. UM’s Central Billing Office won the President’s Cup Challenge for having the largest UM team—117 registered participants. View the slideshow.
