5km completed this morning at Safra Bay Run 2016. Our timing is around 40 minutes, slightly better than 2014’s run 🙂
SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon (what a mouthful), Safra Run is actually our first family run. Since then, we have been conquering more routes (running posts).
Good thing we arrive early, so many carparks were full and there were so many road closures! Best thing is the Fresh morning air, after yesterday’s horrible haze episode (psi 190).
Sun came up to greet us around 7.20am.
Love running on the tarmac, without the cars. Freedom to cut across the lanes 🙂
There was a small diversion for the 5km route.
I told the boys these bouncing castles felt like my SOC (Standard Obstacles Course) in army haha, a fun distraction for the kids. Good thing we are attempting the obstacles early in the race, it would be exhausting to attempt the SOC after 4km marker :p
They will love Jacob’s ladder and low rope in the near future 🙂
The 5km route is fun and well organised, the only complain I had are the NSFs (10Km) who were jamming the whole road from Flyer to end-point. 5km runners merged with them after Helix bridge, along Raffles Avenue.
The NSFs (probably forced to join the race) prefer to bunch up and chit chat and banter at their own walking pace. For goodness sake, if you do not wish to run, move to the left and do not block the lanes!
It was so hard for families to squeeze through.
5km is neither long nor short, but I do have to constantly psycho and motivate the kids. 1km more, water point infront, do not lag behind the “old soldiers” 🙂
We did see a few retired soldiers, wearing black and in their 60s to 70s. Kudos!
My Fitbit actually clock 5.6km, glad to complete the race together with my boys.
Thank you Safra for the fun family run, it was a memorable journey for me with the kids again 🙂
