Have you heard of Singapore Zoo Run? Zoo Run 2015 will be the seventh edition.
On 07Feb (Competitive) and 08Feb (families), humans will be dashing around the Zoo and perhaps Night Safari grounds. Family route might take you 6km near lush green foliage, expect Giraffes and Elephants to be bewildered 🙂
The race was first started to remember Ah Meng, Singapore Zoo’s (and I dare say Singapore) most iconic icon (Orang Utan).
Dates and times : Safari Zoo Challenge (competitive)
– 07Feb 2015 from 4pm – 7pm
Safari Zoo Fun Run (Family, relaxing)
– 08Feb 2015
Races : 9am – 12pm, and carnival : 10am – 3pm
Registration is now available at this link –> SafariZooRun.com.sg and Early Bird registration ends on 31 December.
Family can expect fun activities at the carnival after 08Feb’s run.

This year, we are joining other families in the 3.5Km Family category. Starting from Marina Bay Promontory, we walk towards Marina Bay Sands.
The weather was just nice, as we were worried about an overcast earlier. Kids enjoy running and playing catching along the way.
We reach the halfway mark when we can see the looming SuperTrees. If you have not been to Gardens yet, please read our experience.
We take breaks in between to admire the scenery, and for Daddy to frame us. The towels came in useful 🙂
We are glad to be part of POSB’s passion run initiative. To quote from POSB :
=== === Who are the kids we’re helping?
The POSB PAssion Kids Fund aims to support the children in the community through different programmes. It is part of the People’s Association Community Development Fund (PACDF) whose objective is to promote activities and programmes which will contribute towards social capital and community development.
A fun family morning.
We took about 1 hour to complete the walk (not 4 hours on the LED panel). To the kids’ disappointment, the bouncing castle has been deflated. One of the motivation for them to complete the walk was the castle. Why does it has to be dismantled so quickly?
Although we did not come in fastest, we did came in together. Daddy and Mummy unanimously confer best-runner award to Ms Lee Boon Xin. We are so proud she did not ask for any hugs along the way. Boon Xin just followed in her bros’ footsteps.
