NO REAL RUN, GO VIRTUAL INSTEAD!
This virtual run is to commemorate nationhood celebration of the three close Southeast Asia neighbours. Come every August, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia will spare no effort in rolling out grandeur celebrations. This year, Singapore will first kick off her 55th National Day Celebration on 9 August followed by Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day on 17 August and last but not the least, Malaysia’s 63rd Merdeka Day on 31 August.
It is unfortunate COVID-19 has greatly disrupted our lives and we are likely to witness scaled-down annual parades this year or none at all. Come what may, nothing should deter us from pledging our loves for our countries. While we can’t gather together and run as one big group but we can run at our own time, own pace and preferred venue – the virtual way, that is. Do remember to stay away from crowd and run solo for your safety is important.
Earn three unique run medals with each one comes in the form of a national animal symbol of the country. LION for Singapore, HARIMAU for Malaysia and GARUDA for Indonesia. You need to run on three different occasions and when done, send the three run data in one submission to us.
There are three different distances to complete, (1) 5.5 km for Singapore 55th National Day, (2) 6.3 km for Malaysia’s 63rd Merdeka Day and (3) 7.5 km For Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day. All these distances are in sync to the years of independence of the three nations. You don’t have to complete the whole distance in one run. You can do few runs to add up to the total distance of each country. While completion time counts nothing, completing each run distance is. Everyone is a big winner once he or she has completed the three runs. Take this downtime to fuel your run passion and dedicate it to the three ASEAN nations. When the three medals are put together, it signifies “Peace, Prosperity & Progress”.
In addition, Compressport sport towel worth S$12.90 will be given to all participants.
