Free Orienteering and Nature Trail Activities

Co-organised by Mount Faber Leisure Group and NParks, the first activity of the two-hour walk features a Southern Ridges Heritage and Nature Trail that kicks off at 4.30 p.m. at Telok Blangah Hill Park. The route will be closed off from traffic for this car-free event and ends at the hilltop at Faber Peak.

Interested participants are required to register via the link here.

Co-organised by Active SG, the second event features Orienteering, a sport where runners have to find their way across terrains with the aid of a map and compass, utilising both navigation and map reading skills.

Starting from the Mount Faber Loop, the Orienteering activity will be between 4pm – 6.30 p.m. Each participant is challenged to complete all ten checkpoints, with an opportunity to win prizes upon completion of the event.

To register for the Orienteering activity, please download the ActiveSG App and search for ‘Orienteering @ Mount Faber 2016 – 1St Oct’.

Organised by Mount Faber Leisure Group through the ‘Streets for People’ initiative, and supported by NParks, ‘Let’s Lepak at Mount Faber’ is aligned towards Singapore’s push to become a “car-lite” city.
