Polar Is Creating The First Ever Online Race 2020
Polar Grit X

The Polar Online Race 2020 is more than just an addition to the Singapore running scene; it’s also a salute to Polar, who is eager to introduce runners to the company’s newest, most amazing advancement: The Polar Grit X Outdoor Multisport watch.

This new timepiece is the pride of the company that has been an industry leader since 1977, though technological advancements have elevated the Grit X to a class of its own.

The Polar Online 2020 race theme is “Redefining Trails,” and that’s exactly what this watch, your commitment and enthusiasm, can help you to do.

Stylish, sleek and intuitive, the Polar Grit X is no ordinary multisport watch. Wearers enjoy a lightweight design, military-standard durability and ultra-long battery life. Bells and whistles include the FuelWise™ fueling assistant, real-time route guidance, and the ability to get detailed uphill and downhill stats with Hill Splitter™.

Visit the site to see how sophisticated and remarkable the Polar Grit X is.

How to win a Polar watch?

Stand a chance of winning the Polar Grit X (worth S$689) when collective results have been tabulated at the end of the race.

For instance, it is not counted if the participant signed up for the 100km category and clocked a total of 100km on the road.

The participant must clock a mandatory minimum distance of 15km on trail within the race period from 1 August 2020- 31 August 2020, in order to qualify for the prizes.

Futhermore, if the participant wants to run more than 100km, he or she can clock as many distances on the road, as long as, the participant has completed the mandatory 15km on trail.

So what’s the catch? If you want to be qualify to win the Polar Grit X or any of other prizes, a participant have to run the minimum trail distance given in the category.

Therefore, we encourage participants to increase the threshold mileage by running either one of the categories indicated on the registration page and you might walk away with a Polar watch in each individual category.

1st prize: a Polar Grit X watch valued at S$689
