Fitness buffs rejoice! 2XU’s Compression Run is back again, on 8 April 2018. This year’s morning run will give you the option to run 5km, 10km, or 21.1km, starting from Singapore’s iconic F1 Pit Building.
Here’s your chance to catch the sunrise from Marina Bay at the same time too. The race gun will go off in the wee hours of the morning, starting from 4.30am for the 21.1km race category, so you’ll get to see the first light as you race along Singapore’s unusually sleepy streets.
The organisers have got you covered when it comes to transportation – there will be shuttle bus services costing S$7 from selected MRT stations to the race venue.
If waking up to run is not your thing, maybe this will offer some incentive: there are prizes to be won for the top three winners of each race category, with the largest prize worth S$700.
Every runner will be informed of their run timing, so push yourself to beat your personal best time during the race!
As a participant, you’re entitled to a 2XU singlet, as well as a finisher medal. For runners of the half marathon, you’ll get an additional 2XU Finisher T-Shirt.
Before the actual race, you’ll have to race against time to register for the event before they run out of singlet sizes. So don’t wait any longer, and sign yourself up for the 2XU Compression Run 2018!
Date & Time: 8 April 2018, 4.30am – 9.30am
Price: S$50 (5km run), S$58 (10km), S$68 (21.1km)
