Singapore, being a concrete jungle, often than not, runners run on stadium tracks, on pavements and at times, some trail running. Meeting animals along the route is a rarity. Less those animals who would road hog our paths and what nots. Thus, what better way to experience some animal-lovin’ run than none other than the Safari Zoo Run 2011. ROAR!
As the organizers wont let loose some tigers or crazy man-eating monkeys, thus rest assured, the race would be safe. What one should look out for is the experience of running within the Zoological, Safari and Mandai Lake compounds AND having a great Saturday afternoon run. With distances ranging from 3.2KM (for kids) to 8KM (for adults) i think its a fairly simple leisure themed/oriented run. 🙂
Btw, it flags off at 1530H on 12th February 2011. With an EXTENSION of early bird bird registration till 8th January 2011.
With awesome prizes up for grabs and cool gifts (galore!) to be given to the runners, i feel its worth the money. I mean, come on! The new 2XU running tee for the Safari Zoo Run looks really awesome too. And they even give out FREE ICE CREAM too! Yummeh!
