The Benjamin Sheares Bridge is the longest and tallest bridge in Singapore, with a 1.8-kilometre-long stretch of highway that forms part of the East Coast Parkway, linking the Keppel Road/Shenton Way junction to Marina Centre and standing at 20m in height. The majestic bridge spans across the Kallang Basin and the Singapore River.
The running route is mainly flat, which is excellent for speed training and runners can expect to see many spectacular architectural attractions of the Marina Bay including: the Singapore Flyer, F1 Pit, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay. The street lamps along the highway provide runners sufficient visibility at night as well.
