Singapore Running Calendar 2012 - What's up

Hey ho it’s 2012! It’s that time of the year where you need to decide, and decide quick how many of those race bibs, FINISHER tees and medals you’d like to add to that collection of yours. Yes, while many of you were out merrying during the holiday season, Team RunSociety was engaged in a sprint effort to push THIS out: The Event Calendar. Primed with a cluster of features, we thought it’d be better if we run you through them to help you ease in.

TWO Views

Depending on personal preference, you could view the calendar either in ‘Event List’ or ‘Calendar’ mode. As they connote, one offers you a summary view of the year's races while the other, races happening in a particular month. Note: they are all running events.

Choose between the 'Event List' (top) or 'Calendar view

Print it

Guess what? The Event Calendar’s print-friendly! Our advice is to have them inked out in your office without your boss’ knowledge and pin them at the side of your cubicle to keep you motivated in that mundane corporate setting.

Verification by Organiser

Until you see a green ‘tick’, please take our word with a pinch of salt. (They are subject to date changes together with miscellaneous handfuls.) It’s still rather early in the year to confirm race events especially should they fall in the latter portion.

If it's got a'GREEN' tick, it's reliable

Years back, seeds were sown when Shaun undertook a marketing communications role at a Singapore-based sports distributorship. There, a couple of international sporting brands fell under his purview. He's made the decision to migrate to the receiving end since, placing himself right at the heart of true competition.
