RESILIENCE . SOLIDARITY . PROGRESS
When Singapore’s Circuit Breaker was implemented on 7 April this year which abruptly deprived runners to congregate for a run, we then launched Circuit Breaker Virtual Run. Fast forward some eight months later, it’s all thanks to concerted effort put up by Singaporeans and residents of Singapore from all walks of life which has largely kept the dreadful pandemic at bay. But we know too well that we are not totally out of the woods yet. Enter ‘Phase III’ which will take effect on 28 December 2020. This newly launched Circuit Breaker Phase III Virtual Run will take on a different dimension. While the auspicious number eight holds significant to the Chinese for good luck & prosperity but in this ‘Phase III’, eight is now a new norm in our community.
Run with your seven buddies to form a team of eight and enjoy the much-missed camaraderie of each other. Pay for seven persons and the eighth person will go FREE. Of course, you can also choose to run on your own too – one or eight, it does not really matter.
Run is anywhere at your own pleasure as long as the venue is safe and the minimum run distance is 5KM but if your fitness can take you further, end it at 8KM to be in sync with the new cap. Take heart, this is not a race but more a catch up run with your buddies in this new norm. Grab this opportunity to stay connected with friends and above all, stay fit & healthy. Are you and friends game?
The Finisher Medal
The uniqueness of our finisher medal is the three pillars with each signifies ‘Resilience’, ‘Progress’ and ‘Solidarity’.
