The Run is Catered for Singaporeans

Well, the statement does not come from the organiser but Singaporeans have got a substantial reason to believe so - 29 October is a public holiday!

Deepavali falls on Saturday, 29 October this year and Singaporeans will enjoy a long weekend with Monday, 31 October being a school holiday.

With so many cheap flights between Singapore and Bali, there is no better reason for non-Hindus to turn yourself down on a short getaway, furthermore for a meaningful cause at the 2016 Sunset Run!
