If Mother Nature issued invitations to virtual races, you can bet your stock portfolio that the inaugural Singapore city in nature Challenge would be at the top of her recommendation list.
This event has it all: Complete from any location you choose (even abroad) and pick any activity you prefer to accomplish your win: run, hike, cycle, skate, swim, hustle up steps, dominate a treadmill, elliptical, hit the gym or get your Yoga pants on.
Why not mix and match for variety? It’s your call so let your personality be your guide.
What’s the payoff if you participate in Singapore city in nature challenge?
A toned body. Camaraderie. Bragging rights. Ownership of the world’s biggest race medal. Rap stars don’t wear larger jewelry and you can display your huge hanging trophy on a wall or wear it to Mum’s for the next family gathering.
Don’t hang it from your car’s rear view mirror, however. It is so large; it could obstruct your view!

About that gonzo medal
This commemorative symbol measures 227mm long x 114mm wide by 5mm thick.
That much surface is needed to engrave 3D symbols like a butterfly, Pangolin, Crimson Sunbird, Fiddler Crab, Songbirds, Otter, Racket-Tailed Drongo, White-Collared Kingfisher, Grey Heron, and Hornbill to the design since each represents singapore parks connectors showcased during this event.
No detail was spared in the design of this antique gold-overlaid recycled alloy emblem festooned with singapore parks connectors symbols that comes boxed with a lanyard.
Join the fun for yourself, your ancestors, and Singapore’s future
