The hype is not over yet. RunSociety caught up with the fun happenings at the Race Entry Pack Collection last Saturday. A carnival was held concurrently with the collection at Singapore Marina Square. Many expectant participants turned up with much awaited deals awaiting them at the booths set up by the kind sponsors.

On a Saturday morning, nearly 100 Shape Run 2013 participants gathered at East Coast Park at the crack of dawn. They were all ready and thrilled to go for a good 5 kilometres run in preparation of the upcoming Shape Run in July. Runners can also choose to carry on to complete 10 kilometres if they feel good to go.
