After a successful event last year, the Safari Zoo Run is back, wilder & better than before! The one and only chance you get to run through the zoo every year, Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities — Ah Meng the Sumatran orang utan. If you love animals and wildlife, or have a deep connection with the Singapore Zoo, this is the race for you! Here are 3 reasons why you should not miss the Safari Zoo Run 2016, happening on the 27th and 28th February:
1. A Fun And Educational Race
The Singapore Zoo is known for one of the most excellent zoos in the world – having among the most beautiful wildlife park settings in the world, where animals roam freely in open and naturalistic habitats. Running along the race route, you will not only get to experience the beautiful wildlife park settings, but you will possibly get to interact with the animals too. With categories that open up to participants from 4 years old and above, you can bring your family along to have a fun and enriching day out. Take part in the Safari Zoo Run to get up close and personal with the animals!
2. Race For Wildlife
An active advocate for preserving biodiversity and endangered species, the Singapore Zoo places a strong emphasis on wildlife conservation. While you run along the race route in the zoo and learn more about the wildlife animals, also take your time to appreciate the importance of conserving animals and the beauty of nature. This year, a portion of the proceeds from the race will go towards aiding the conservation efforts of Singapore Zoo and Wildlife Reserves Singapore. Have fun at the race, educate yourself and your family members about wildlife conservation, and leave a positive impact on the future of wildlife animals.
3. Runners’ Entitlement
Be the proud owners of these cute race medals, or even better, let them mark the start of your child’s interest in running and wildlife. On top of race apparel and race medal, all participants are also entitled to receive free admission to Singapore Zoo and River Safari on the registered race day itself. A full day for family outing all planned out – how does that sound? Other entitlements include 50% discount vouchers for Jurong Bird Park Admission and Night Safari Admission, free 3-month digital subscription of Young Parents magazine (worth $15), and exclusive F&B and retail offers.
