Sport unites. It excites. It entertains. Three principles which The Straits Times can identify with.
Which is why when it came to organising an event to engage you, our readers, a sporting event seemed the perfect fit.
The ST Run is a run with a difference. Not only will running enthusiats get to spend their Sunday morning in one of the newest and most scenic park connectors, they can expect a whole slew of activities to help them prepare for the inaugural run on August 25.
From pre-run clinics with some of Singapore's top long-distance runners to a running guide which discusses everything from nutrition to choosing the right shoes, ST will be with you every step of the way.
Whether you're keen to push yourself on the 15km route or prefer the 5km fun run, look out for ST's interactive map of the run routes, which will feature both pictures and videos of the unique parts of the picturesque Punggol Waterway. The run will take runners along the natural coastline of Punggol Beach, and the banks of Punggol and Sengkang reservoirs.
Over 10,000 are expected to join us for a morning of fun in the sun. I hope to see you there too.
