Running 5 or 10 km is a breeze for most runners, but can you do it without your precious sight? Step into the shoes of special needs runners and try out this ‘Blind Run’.

Bringing its signature run back for its second instalment, Runninghour 2016 will be held at East Coast Park Angsana Green. Come Sunday, 10 July 2016, a record 5,000 participants are expected in Singapore’s first and only mass event which runs alongside visually, intellectually and physically-challenged runners.

In pairs, runners will complete 5 km or 10 km non-competitive categories. Staying connected with a tether band, one runner will be blindfolded while another guides.

The inaugural launch last year drew over 1,000 participants in the ‘Blind Run’ category, breaking the record for the Largest Blindfolded Mass Run in Singapore.

Tickets are now S$40 for the 10 km Blind Run, S$35 for the 5 km Blind Run, and S$20 for the Non-Stop Dance Fitness. Early bird registration closes on 30 April, but past participants can continue to enjoy early bird prices till normal registration closes on 19 June.
