Run anywhere and anytime you want, and you’ll still be considered a participant of the Nike + Human Race 10k, which is returning to Singapore on Oct 24.
This is the new twist to last year’s multi-city event, now termed “The Day the World Runs”, and Singapore is the only city in South East Asia to host the race, alongside 23 other cities around the world.
The freedom of not having to report at a fixed venue and at a fixed time is, however, only given to runners using their Nike+ iPod Sport Kit or Nike+ Sportband to record their run.
Those who choose to run the old way, can still turn up when the race kicks off at 7.30am at the F1 Pit Building. The scenic race route passes the Kampong Glam mosque, Nicoll Highway, National Stadium and the newly renovated Kallang Leisure Park.
Mr Glenn Heng, Marketing Manager, Nike Southeast Asia and Singapore said, “We hope to give runners an unparalleled running experience during this year’s Nike+ Human Race by combining their love for music and a very unique 10km race route, starting and ending at the F1 track.”
Apart from the special race trail, runners will be celebrating the end of their race with a highly energetic music concert featuring top regional bands such as Thaitanium (Thailand), Agrikulture (Indonesia), Chicosci and Taken By Cars (Philippines), Estranged (Malaysia), as well as local talents Composition B and The Fire Fight. The concert is also open to 3,000 non-participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
As part of the event, a Guys Vs Girls challenge will be held to raise funds for charities. MediaCorp TV artiste Tay Ping Hui will be showing his support for the guys, while Hype Records’ artiste Rui En will lead the girls to clock the most distance and garner funds for their respective charities.
