The 8th edition of the Salomon X-Trail Run returns this year on Saturday, 8 October 2016 with a refreshing trail route consisting of more hills, slopes and gravel close to the heart of nature at Punggol.
This event is part of the Salomon X-Trail Series in the Asia-Pacific Region, having also made appearances in neighbouring countries such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Philippines.
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.
