On Sunday the 13th of August 2017, more than 4,500 runners took part in the second run of this 3-part Singapore edition running series which happens throughout the year. The first run happened at Stadium Riverside on 28th May 2017.

This time round, participants were brought through the scenic route extending from Punggol East through Punggol Waterway Park and Coney Island before finishing after the iconic Lorong Halus Bridge. The Guest of Honour, Mr Ng Chee Meng, Minister for Education (Schools), Second Minister for Transport and MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, flagged off the 21km participants at 7.00am sharp, followed by the 10km and 5km categories. Joining Mr Ng was Mr Desmond Tan, Chief Executive Director, People’s Association, and Mr Joseph Tan, Chairman of Punggol North Community Sports Club.

Coupled with great weather, the race gathered individuals, families and communities from all walks of life and all parts of Singapore. They enjoyed the benefits of health and wellness through running at a scenic and beautiful landscape that we are all so proud to call home. All the race volunteers, supporters and participants had all made this event a great success.
