Great Eastern Women’s Run 2014: Running to Live Great!
The Great Eastern Women's Run is back! This November, Asia's largest all-women run aims to attract 17,000 runners, underlining Great Eastern's continuing commitment to helping women live well and stay healthy.
#RuntoLiveGreat: Encouraging Better Living
This year sees the introduction of a new programme called #RuntoLiveGreat, where non-runners everywhere are encouraged to take that first step towards healthier and better living. 50 pairs of selected women will be challenged to step forth commit themselves to a healthier lifestyle by attending various aspects of the fully fledged programme, including attending various training sessions, fringe activities and eventually completing a run of any race distance on race day itself!
In return, each of the selected participants will receive a complimentary #RuntoLiveGreat kit worth up to S$350, comprising an adidas workout T-shirt, a pair of New Balance running shoes, a Polar Loop activity tracker and tailored exercise programme including complimentary all-access to three pre-assigned Great Eastern Women’s Run fringe activities.
Accommodating Female Runners of All Levels
Commissioned by Great Eastern and organised by HiVelocity Events Pte Ltd, the Great Eastern Women's Run will flag off and end at The Float@Marina Bay on Sunday, 9 November 2014.
The Great Eastern Women's Run will feature three race distances – 5km Live Great! Fun Run, 10km and 21.1km, accommodating female runners of all levels. Apart from the individual race category, participants can also opt to run with a partner by registering for 2 at a discounted rate. In addition, participants from the same company also have the option of signing up in teams of 4 under the corporate category.
Inspiring Females to Champion Healthier Lifestyles
This year's race route will cover familiar iconic landmarks including Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, Merlion Park, Esplanade, Singapore Flyer, F1 Pit Building. Runners can also look forward to running past the new Sports Hub. There will be 17,000 slots available for the Run and registration will close once all slots are filled.
Dr Khoo Kah Siang, CEO (Singapore), Great Eastern Life, said,
"As a LIFE company, Great Eastern has always championed better living and the Great Eastern Women's Run has been an excellent platform for women of all ages and capabilities to pledge their commitment to a healthier lifestyle. This year, we would like to acknowledge every woman taking part in the run by celebrating all the small steps taken to be active. In order to inspire more women to keep fit, we are excited to launch the #RuntoLiveGreat Programme this year to provide support every step of the way."
The Great Eastern Women's Run is also the first and only run in Singapore to feature female-only pacers. As the race has done last year, these pacers will have to go through a rigorous training programme to prepare themselves with the honourable task of pacing the runners on race day.
