In 2016, JustRunLah! listed more than 150 running events in our Singapore running calendar. With 2016 coming to an end, find out the 3 most unique running events in Singapore this year!
The Zouk Run
Other than being the first-and-ever to combine “clubbers” and “runners”, The Zouk Run (5 November 2016) is unique in a way that it brought the runners through a route of 3km dotted with “Zouk key experiences” starting and ending at Zouk. Four race categories were available: Podium Queen, Mambo King, The Shuffler and The Musichead and each comes with the attractive entitlements! Completed a 3km then showed off the entitlements in The Zouk Run After Party!
The Performance Series Singapore 2016
The first running series in Singapore – The Performance Series (TPS), is a series of five races that brings runners through unique iconic landscapes of Singapore. The venues had been chosen so to comprise of island (Coney Island on May), lake (Jurong Lake on June), city (Gardens by the Bay on August), reservoir (Bedok Reservoir on October) and farm settings (Kranji Countryside on December). Most uniquely, the runners signed up the series, ran a 2.5km / 5km / 10 km with TPS every one or two months and transcended themselves into a more active lifestyle throughout the year of 2016.
