The D10 isn’t for the faint of heart. The intense competition pushes its athletic contestants to their ultimate physical limits. A favorite among the Wall Street crowd, its goal is to raise money to support pediatric cancer research — which this year was a massive success for the New York City chapter, raising over $8 million dollars.

This past weeked, those in New York from Goldman Sachs, RBC Capital Markets, JPMorgan, and many more came together to compete in the two-day event.

Below, 28 photos that show the intense 400-meter run, football throw, pull-ups, 40-yard dash, dips, 500-meter row, vertical jump, 20-yard shuttle, bench press, and 800-meter run competition.

On Saturday, teams of four came to compete against one another.

Rachael Chen, an analyst at JP Morgan was on team House Tyrell, which raised over $11,000.

Zach Rosen, of KeyBanc Capital Markets, was on team MHP1, which raised over $17,000.

Even on the individual competition day, friends motivated each other to power through.

After rowing, competitors have to jump. Derek Gaul, of Northwestern Mutual, had a 36 inch high jump.

Next is the 20 yard shuttle.

The athletes caught some shade while waiting their turn.

After a bench press, and the final 800 meter run Mauricio Velasco yells in triumph — he placed fourth in the run at two minutes, 19 seconds.

After that, athletes cooled down…

…and ate some snacks…

…and took a rest in the sun.

Winners were awarded with trophies — here, the top three competing women: Katie Davis, Laura Placentra, and Kerry Ojeda pose.
