This annual mass running event is the largest in Singapore and jointly organised by SAFRA and The Army. The event comprises both the competitive 21-km half-marathon and 10-km routes. The social runners can participate in the non-competitive 5/6-km Fun Run as well.
The SAFRA Singapore Bay Run and Army Half Marathon (SSBR & AHM) will be back for the 19th year with new initiatives on September 12.
The event aims to promote healthy lifestyle and reinforce SAFRA and the SAF’s emphasis on physical fitness. Over the years, participation has grown from 15,000 when it first started in 1992 to about 70,000 last year.
Participants will get to enjoy a unique route taking them over the iconic Benjamin Sheares Bridge, through the new down town at Marina Bay area as well as pass historical places. Participants will also be entertained by the street side performances along the various running routes. The fun continues with stage performances at the end point carnival and complemented with various merchandise stalls offering promotional discounts on the wide range of sports related products.
Competitive participants will each receive an event T-shirt, goody bag, personalised certificate and a finisher medal. For the 5/6-km Fun Run participants, they will each receive a certificate of completion and an event-shirt.
Registration for the SSBR & AHM 2010 is open till August 15.
