Biggest night race set to return
19 March, 2013
Organised by HiVelocity Events Pte Ltd, Sundown Marathon is Singapore’s biggest night race and it returns for the sixth year with a record-expecting crowd of 30,000 runners.
With the growth of the event and for safety concerns, Sundown Marathon will be held over two nights; with the 10km and 21km categories flagging off on the night of 31 May, and the full marathon category starting on the night of 1 June. Runners can expect to be kept awake with adrenaline pumping through their veins as they are entertained by exciting activities at the race village before and after the races.
This year’s race route will unveil with hints of a few new elements that will take runners past some of Singapore’s world-renowned attractions. The Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Flyer, as well as the soon-to-be-completed Singapore Sports Hub will be added to the latest edition. Runners will be able to experience this amazing urban landscape to motivate them as they run and perhaps get a glimpse of what it is like to race on part of the F1 route and will flag-off at the F1 Pit Building.
The three race routes (Marathon, Half marathon and 10km) have been carefully mapped out to trace part of the route of the Republic’s other night race – the Singapore F1 Grand Prix. So perhaps it is only appropriate that the event is set to flag-off at the F1 Pit Building, just like its four-wheel counterpart.
As part of its effort to continually reinvent itself and to bring an even more exciting experience to the participants, Sundown is back with one key message in mind: Show your True Colours.
Successfully completing a marathon and through the night, is a reflection of the level of commitment and discipline these individuals have developed. It speaks of the strength and character they have in them and in essence, it reveals their True Colours. Running represents a time in the day when they can be their true selves while doing something they love.
The True Colours experience also extends to those who are present to support their loved ones. This year, Sundown Marathon will offer a carnival with a myriad of activities that will appeal to everyone. Whether you are in the mood for Red Hot excitement or Cool Blue chill out time, we have it all planned out for you. It is time to embrace your real self and indulge in what truly excites you!
Registration fees for the three categories are priced at $53 (10km), $60 (Half Marathon) and $80 (Full Marathon). Hurry and Sign up before registration closes on 30 April 2013.
