  What is a virtual run?
A virtual run is a race that you can complete at your own pace and time.

Virtual running works exactly the same as any other type of running but the difference is that the entered race can be run at any location, either outside or inside on a treadmill.

All you have to do is register for a race and provide evidence that you have done it. The evidence can be a screenshot of your running app, a photo of the treadmill screen etc. Do check out specific instructions of the event you join for more information.



Virtual races are a great way to stay fit and active all year round, run for good causes and get awesome medals and other entitlements for your participation!

For Our Heroes
Run For Heroes 2020 is a ground-breaking virtual running initiative that aims to build a national movement of support for Singapore’s healthcare and service frontliners. Supported by SportSG and SG United, the event aims to build a movement that transcends sports to create a real and tangible impact.

Run for Heroes will create a direct expression of the collective gratitude for our frontline heroes. After completing a 1-kilometre run, participants will be entitled to two iconic red and white wristbands which serve as a unifying symbol of support, with one wristband being sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks.

Run For Heroes 2020 aims to attract 500,000 runners and to distribute a total of one million wristbands before the event concludes on August 8, a day before Singapore’s National Day.

“Hero”
To mark the launch of Run for Heroes 2020, the event has adopted as its official theme song, an original composition by popular local music duo Jack and Rai, fittingly titled “Hero”. The song’s meaningful lyrics and uplifting anthemic melody matches the ethos and mission of Run For Heroes 2020 perfectly.

The Journey Starts Here
All it takes is for you to run or walk a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude for those on the frontlines of this battle against COVID-19.

Declaration Of Solidarity
Upon completion of a 1-kilometre run or 1,250 steps, one wristband will be sent to the participants and the other will be sent to a frontline hero with a personalised message of thanks as an expression of gratitude.

Wearing the wristbands allows everyone living in Singapore – from the frontliners to the people they protect and serve – to have a visible and recognisable symbol that will connect us all in a spirit of unity and solidarity.

Be part of a national movement that will remind us of the challenges we will face and overcome together.

The Courage Fund
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. In this same spirit, the fund is rallying the support of Singaporeans to lend a hand to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The evolving COVID-19 situation has impacted many Singaporeans, including those who are facing loss of income or are struggling with additional caregiving duties and expenses.

Funds raised will go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers affected by the COVID-19 situation.

Your participation in Run for Heroes will help The Courage Fund provide support to those who have been severely impacted by COVID-19.
