Healthy living is a walk in the park with the Jurong Lake Run 2013 (JLR2013) returning on Sunday, 7 July 2013. This not-for-profit community event will include a new addition of the non-competitive 850m Kids Dash for children under the age of 13 with exclusive finisher medals for participants. This is in addition to the non-competitive 3km walk-a-jog, 6km and 10km competitive categories. To date, approximately 5,000 participants have already signed up for this annual event.
The grand motto of “Running as One” was encapsulated in the charity element and the broad races. New this year was the 3km community walk-a-jog, allowing everyone to run their own race. With inclusion in mind, the veteran categories caused the age band to explode. The Jurong Lake Run 2012 had participants from one years of age to eighty!
