19th Nov was a good day for the outdoor activities. There were showers the previous day, which resulted in an excellent weather condition for the 500 or so participants starting the walk & jog at 7.30 am at the Pasir Ris Park.

The event was organized by the Tampines Central CSC at $ 8 per pax, very affordable considering that the perks included event tee, isotonic drinks, buns and the finisher medal.  There were even lucky draws at the end of the event! 😁

The Walk & Jog

Participants were led to do warm up exercises before the start-off, after which runners chiong at the front while walkers like myself and my family started at the back.

The route began from the Central Plaza to Camp Site 1, U-turn and heading towards the other end of the park before turning back to the finishing point at the Central Plaza.

Along the walk we passed by mangrove swamps and were treated to scenic view of the sea. There were people enjoying the beach as well as cycling on the track. One plus point is you also get a feeling of ‘holiday mood’ when you see Downtown East and the chalets! ☺

We also saw chickens running around, though I am not sure if they were wild or domestically kept. There was no sign of wild boars too, even though we saw a sign board advising caution.

At the finishing point, we were given lucozade 😃 , sunshine buns, bottled water (this was also provided during hydration points) and the finisher medal. The lucozade wasn’t cold, but I guess it was all right as I just walked and wasn’t ‘shack’.

The lucky draw took place once all participants were back and rested.  There were 10 prizes of Capital Land vouchers, ranging from $ 10 to $ 80.

Closing Thoughts

Though this event may not be as ‘glamourous’ as the usual races, I think it was well organized with sufficient volunteers and hydration points along the route. The park is scenic, without being too crowded in the early morning. Definitely a recommendation for families looking to bond together in a healthy lifestyle mass event!
