More than 100 participants of the Great Eastern Women’s Run (GEWR) 2016 worked up a sweat with athletic urban dance fitness workouts during the Live Great Mega Dance Fiesta on Saturday morning (24 September 2016) at Capitol Piazza.
Led by trainers from True Fitness, the Live Great Mega Dance Fiesta featured popular fitness dance workouts such as K-Pop and U-Jam. Energetic participants of young and old were grooving to the beats with a combination of dance, high interval intensity training and high energy music.
The two-hour dance session was the second fringe activity among the diverse line up of pre-event festivities in the lead up to race day on 13 November 2016.
Upcoming fringe activities that are still open for registration include Piloxing, Training Runs and Zumba.
Don a Tutu for a Good Cause
The outdoor atrium of Capitol Piazza was lit up with a sea of colours as the ladies were donning colourful tutu skirts while engaging in the dance fitness workouts.
Tutu skirts are a symbolic representation of the GEWR with the “Don a Tutu for a Cause” initiative. For a minimum donation of SG$5 to the event’s beneficiaries – the Breast Cancer Foundation and the Women’s Health Research and Education Fund, runners will receive a tutu in the beneficiaries’ colours and are encouraged to don them on race day.
Participants of the Live Great Mega Dance Fiesta were also treated to a sneak preview of the GEWRxKLARRA sport accessory which is now officially on sale on KLARRA.com.
For the first time, GEWR is collaborating with local fashion label KLARRA on an exclusive scarf designed by founder Beatrice Tan.
Proceeds from the sale of the limited edition scarf will go toward the Breast Cancer Foundation and the Women’s Health Research and Education Fund.
