Race Prelude: Newton Challenge 2012
Get ready to push yourself further – put on your Newton Running shoes and complete an 18km or a 30km at the all time favourite East Coast Park this coming Sunday, 28 October. Popular amongst runners who are gearing themselves up for a half marathon or a full marathon since its first launch in 2010, this race is endurance centric.
Newton Challenge is also planned with the participant in mind – from having an abundance of chilled Pocari Sweat at water points, gels, and bananas, to rewarding the well-deserved runners with an ice-cold towel at the finish line. Not to forget a change in the flag-off time for this year! The 30km challenge will start at 5.30am, 1.5 hours earlier than in of previous years, relieving runners of the morning sun heat.
Last we heard, there will be some new additions to the race that you can look forward to and whet your hunger and thirst after the race. Any guesses on what treats Newton Challenge has in store for you?
And before we forget - there will be 3 lucky Newton Challengers walking away with some of Apple's latest products including the new iPad and iPod touch. So don't miss the exciting lucky draw after the race!
