My new year resolution for 2018 was to sign up for less runs and to focus on the important ones instead. Yet I could not resist signing up for the Transformers Run which was happening on the first Saturday of the year.

Race Pack Collection
  • Race pack collection was held outside Kallang Wave Mall just beside Stadium MRT and there was no queue.
  • The race pack comprised of a Transformers drawstring bag, a black event T-shirt, a water bottle and 2 packets of milk.
  • As it was a fun run, there was no bib and we were given a wristband for entry into the run.

The Run
  • The race venue was conveniently located at Palawan Green of Sentosa, directly beside Beach Station.
  • Prior to flag off, runners were greeted by gigantic mascots of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
  • Flag off was 10 minutes earlier than the projected time of 430pm.
  • Weaving my way through participants who were strolling with their friends and children, I started running but not for long.
  • At around the 1km mark after Siloso Beach, it became challenging when we had to run uphill. Like everyone else, I slowed down and started walking up Mount Imbiah.
  • The uphill then downhill course lasted for around 1km and we were finally running on flat ground to Palawan Beach.
  • The weather was pleasantly cloudy and only slightly warm.
  • Hydration stations were adequately stocked with isotonic drink and water which volunteers had poured beforehand.
  • The overall distance was only around 4.5km but I felt tired because of the uphill section.
  • At the end of the run, we were given a beautiful finisher medal, a bottle of Ice Mountain water and a can of 100Plus drink.

  • It was indeed a very enjoyable run, especially for participants with young children.
  • The Transformers mascots who were present at the event provided plenty of photo opportunities for the runners.
  • Thank you, organizer and volunteers, for making this event a very successful one.
