As the first and largest running event in the west of Singapore, Jurong Lake Run aims to promote healthy living and bring together people from all walks of life. Organised in the middle of each year at Jurong Lake Park, Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden, Jurong Lake Run infuses the typically serene landscape with fun and excitement.
Jurong Lake Run is a not-for-profit volunteer-driven event. Its motto – “Running as One” – represents the importance of community spirit; the importance of working together and contributing to society. Every year, volunteers come together to make Jurong Lake Run possible and a portion of the proceeds is donated to adopted beneficiaries.
But of course, Jurong Lake Run isn’t complete without Jurong Lake Expo and Jurong Lake Carnival. Sports enthusiasts can pamper themselves with great promotions on sporting products, services and events at the Expo. At the Carnival, one can expect games and entertainment for all ages.

The building block of the logo is inspired by two vital elements of the Jurong Lake Run, our runners and the Jurong Lake.
This is represented by the Stylised Runner seen below: Runner + Jurong Lake = Stylised Runner
The combination of 5 stylised runners in a forward pointing arrow formation relfects our vision as well as the 5 core values.
Red, Black and White are chosen as the primary colour scheme:
Red symbolises brotherhood and the passion of the community to help others.
Black symbolises the unlimited potential of the Jurong Lake Run community to change our society for the better.
White symbolises the opportunity for new beginnings, whether be it a healthier lifestyle, or being more engaged in the community.
