This annual mass running event is the largest in Singapore and jointly organised by SAFRA and The Army. The event comprises both the competitive 21km half-marathon and 10km routes. The social runners can participate in the non-competitive 5km Fun Run as well.
The event aims to promote healthy lifestyle and reinforce SAFRA and the SAF's emphasis on physical fitness. Over the years, participation has grown from 15,000 when it first started in 1992 to about 70,000 last year.
Participants will get to enjoy a unique route taking them over the new downtown around the Marina Bay area as well as pass historical places. Participants will also be entertained by the street side performances along the various running routes. The fun continues with stage performances at the end point carnival and complemented with various merchandise stalls offering promotional discounts on the wide range of sports related products.
As part of the celebrations for SAFRA 40th Anniversary and 45 years of National Service, the organisers will be planning activities to excite and engage participants. Be sure to keep a look out for it in the coming months!
