Well, I was hoping the weather would prevail considering the fact that it had been raining like crazy during the week.
Alas, it didn’t but nevertheless it was fun
running walking in the rain. Couldn’t run due to an inflamed tendon but even if I wanted to, it was hard to do so as most of the participants choose to walk and take photos of animals along the way. With so many families, kids and strollers, this run is really more family oriented and I think it’s a great way for the family to stay fit together.

About the Safari Zoo Run Run
The Safari Zoo Run’s atmosphere is pretty different from the usual running events held in Singapore. Focused more on families, there are options to sign up as a whole family unit instead of individually and a kid’s fun run for the children to participate in. With distances at 6km and the furthest being 12km, logistically, there is less headache for the organisers I think. I liked the fact that it starts at 10am too, no need to get up so early. haha
Plus, it was heartwarming to see all the little kids running as fast as their tiny legs could take them once the horn went off in the 2.8km kid’s run. With proud parents snapping photos of their little ones as they ran past or parents urging their kids to run as they accompanied them, it really is never too early to start running young!
The 6km route takes you 3km into the Night Safari and another 3km around the Zoo itself. Spied a few splendid animals like the white tiger, various primates and the cuter ones like the giraffes, meerkats and others. Didn’t see the pandas though.
Could have taken more photos but it was raining. All in all, it was a nice way to spend a Sunday as it was a good friend’s birthday and my best friend just came back from a holiday 🙂
Too bad they ran out of the finisher medal but they said it would be posted to us 🙂
