This morning, I enjoyed the First Run with my girl at Cold Storage Kids Run 2018. Location was at Sentosa, near to Beach Station.
We arrived earlier and promptly got ourselves a cup of milo. We were fortunate as we heard the carpark was full and many runners were delayed.
As we make our way to the start point, sea of Green and White crowded Sentosa Palawan beach area. Kids were dashing, parents were anticipating with their handphones for perfect photo moments.
Festive atmosphere. We can actually participate in fun events (including bouncing castles) before the race starts. Might not be a good idea for younger kids in case they exert too much energy 🙂
Very competitive kids, they were dashing to the start point. Hello, race has not started yet 🙂
I would commend the Cold Storage Kids Run organisers for a well organised run. Runners were guided into wait pens, they were allow to run in waves to minimised congestion. The process and flow was both neat and with safety in mind.
Parents who are waiting at the end-point must have a matching “wrist-tag” in order to pickup their child. This is a good measure to ensure kids will not be lost.
And so we got ready for 800m. The moment we gather at the race pen, I know this would be easy peasy for Boon Xin and me.
Looking around, Boon Xin is easily a head taller than the other participants, all are so young and so short hee hee.
Kudos to the families who have decided to stat Sunday early and enjoy a healthy bonding opportunity.
This is our first solo run, I hope the 800m will be a start for more runs to come. You may refer to our family’s running adventures here (tagged running).
I suspect the route might be even shorter, two turns and we are done. It was too easy for Boon Xin, she had only just warm up 🙂
Video (YouTube link) : We had Fun along the route, but we noticed many families were hogging the center lane too. If you are walking , keep to the left please.
Well done, 阿妹 (Ah Mei)!
Among the different running categories, there was a 2km Besties Trail for the toddlers. Instead of obstacle courses, there are various checkpoints for families to learn about nutrition.
.. and is this toddler cute or not? She was just following in her Daddy’s foot step, and she earned loud applauses from the spectators and volunteers.
More fun activities await families after their run. Refreshment, fruits and you can find popcorn and cotton candy too.
We heard some of the finishers did not got their medals, I hope the organisers will followup quickly.
We hope more families had enjoyed a Good Morning workout with family.
I am so proud of my girl and happy that she had decided to join me in a solo run. First Run with my girl yes!
(Given an option, she would prefer to shop with Mom or perhaps enjoy food trips)
