The 2019 edition of The Straits Times Run will see one of its youngest participants in five-year-old Ashton Ong. He will participate in the new 3.5km Fun Run, which was created to mark Singapore Press Holdings’ 35th anniversary, with his family.

His family comprises parents Danny Ong and Christine Chew, and Ashton’s two siblings – Emilee, nine, and Brigton, 12. They will be joined by his parents’ 14-year-old godson Damien.

Ong, 43, an aquatics educator who teaches people with special needs how to swim, participated in last year’s ST Run with Brigton and Damien.
