Every yellow being is eager to dash, we have registered ourselves for the 6km Fun run. (Emphasis is on Fun)
2km, Boon Yee was leading the charge most of the way, this boy really loves to run. To see kids run so carefree, so full of joy, even Daddy was motivated to try and catch up.
Every now and then, there will be a slight jam, as runners slow down to take photos of the exhibits. The animals must be delighted to have some added entertainment from the ”
yellow beings”. They must be whispering “Crazy human beings!”
Nice scenery, relaxing pace, no need to rush. Some families even brought their strollers along, so that juniors can enjoy the sights and perspiration.
Inuka is not at home, we posed with his replica.
4km, and Boon Yee’s stamina is far from depleted.
We spotted some Elephants showering and white Tigers along the way. Much needed distraction for kids and adults as we take a breather. Most of the time, it is parents who have difficulty catching up with the energetic kids 🙂
We waited for the rest to catch up, before hitching a free Zebra tram ride at the “bus interchange”. Too bad, no drivers around.
Instagram at 5km. Daddy joked that Zoo should let some hyenas and wild dogs out to improve our timings 🙂
Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch, Ah Meng.
We even had time to make a small detour to visit our favourite zone, Fragile Forest. The monitor lizard is wild, it was free to roam the grounds. You might have seen some peacocks parading around too.
Other activities await participants, bumboats are not operating, so forget about taking a shortcut across Mandai lake.
Fun activities and carnival await families before and after the race.
Although it is 6km, we completed the race in under 90min.
Walk, jog, dash, and sightseeing, most importantly we cross the finishing line together.
If you ask the kids whether we should try it again in 2016, you will only hear YES!
Finisher medals, is the Hippo cute or not? Thanks Singapore Zoo for the Fun invitation, many families had fun stomping the Night Safari and Zoo grounds last weekend.
