Brooks Marina Run 2015: A Night of Bright Lights with a Touch of Romance

Valentine's Day on Saturday, 14 February 2015 was not only a special day for couples and loved ones but also Singapore's very first 21km half marathon in 2015! Deemed one of the most scenic half marathons and 10km races on the island, the Brooks Marine Run brought together 6,000 passionate runners to enjoy spectacular river front views at Gardens by the Bay.

Before the flag-offs at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., several excited runners turned up in bright yellow and cyan tank tops. Some came with illume sticks and blinker lights, too. Together with the picturesque night view of Gardens by the Bay, Marine Barrage and Tanjong Rhu Promenade, the race course was illuminated in a dazzling array of lights and colours.

The flat and fast route inspired a number of Personal Best times for individuals, friends, dating couples and spouses. To top off the memorable night, runners brought home an exclusive Valentine's Day Brooks Marina Run finisher medal. The best dressed individual and couple runners in Valentine's-Day-themed attire were also awarded mystery prizes for their creativity and spontaneity.

The downtown area, resplendent in the rousing race festivities and lighted decorations, was aglow with glistening lights. As the night came to a close, romance lingered in the air while dreamy light music and love songs were played post-race.
