Race Route

As with the Salomon X-Trail branding, the event is reputable for its technical trail running race with a mixture of different terrain surfaces including dirt, rocks, sand and concrete paths.

The upcoming edition in Singapore is no exception. Flagging off in the late afternoon at 4p.m. from 50 Punggol East, trail runners will be up against a challenging trail route running through unmarred icons such as the Punggol Promenade Nature Walk and Serangoon Island.

The different terrain surfaces throughout the course are sure to inject participants with a boost of adrenaline rush as they blaze through the arduous route.
