Safari Zoo Run 2015

By  |  0 Comments

Seventh installment of the Safari Zoo Run will be double the fun, with dedicated days for competitive and fun runners over the weekend of 7 and 8 February 2015.

Next year’s run will see competitive runners racing on 7 February while 8 February will be the fun run where the runners will also get the opportunity to participate in a ‘Best Dressed Runner’ contest and get a chance to enjoy a whole host of carnival festivities.

The races, both competitive and fun, will transport runners past animal exhibits through meandering paths lined by greenery in Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s most adored personalities — Ah Meng the Sumatran orang utan. The iconic personality died of old age in February 2008.

Avid runners can look forward to competitive races such as the 6km or 12km Safari Zoo Challenge on 7 February with prizes awarded to the top three finishers in each of the competitive categories. The fun run which is a 6km route done at a leisurely pace as well as other family-friendly activities are scheduled for 8 February. Also, for the first time in the run’s history, fun runners will be able to enjoy a Safari Zoo Run Carnival after their race, where festivities, such as a bazaar, mascots’ meet and greet sessions, fun fair stations, educational stations, and exciting performances await.

Each participant will receive an exclusive dri-fit Safari Zoo Run singlet or T-shirt (worth S$24.90) and other attractive goodies including discounted admission to Night Safari or a chance to stroll through River Safari in the evening. In addition, all runners will walk away with an exclusive animal-motif finisher medal and a one-day entry to Singapore Zoo on the day of the run.

Early bird registration is now open until 31 December 2014. For more information, log on to Part of the proceeds from the Safari Zoo Run will go towards the care of threatened animals at Night Safari and Singapore Zoo.
