With every run, the kids are always wild, I mean enthusiastic. I always had to remind them that this route is 5km not 500m. Yet, from the start, they will still sprint!
One of the mascots from Safari Zoo Run 2016 ready to pack us off.
1km mark, not forgetting to wefie. Since Boon Xin and Mummy will be slower, we decided to pose at 1 and 2km marker, and I will join the boys infront.
Catch the orang utans and giraffes along the way. Singapore Zoo’s new Baby giraffe is a new addition, and we heard the new “Ah Meng” (Granddaughter) was introduced too.
Safari Zoo Run is organised to commemorate Ah Meng 🙂
Always remind the kids to lookout for one other, to encourage and motivate each other. They need to understand that teamwork is more valued than individual achievement.
As we count down the 5.5km route 1km by 1km, time passed quickly.
(Kudos to the volunteers and cheerleaders too!)
Boon Xin’s stamina has improved too, Mummy say she will lose-air (lose momentum) at the 1km mark, she managed to endure till the 2km this round 🙂
I always tell the kids that Zoo Run 2016 (series) is always fun.
Running near to the animals, deep in Mandai’s forest.
Greens, shades and slopes :p
I did noticed there are more uphill slopes this edition, and it is not an easy task to push the strollers uphill.
Took our own sweet time, no rush, appreciate the animals and “green” paths 🙂
Say hello to your running buddies.
We can confidently say Zoo Run offers the best family Run experience in Singapore!
Does not matter if we end last, just enjoy the moment, and see some animals along the way. These “pit-stops” does distract the kids from fatigue.
Proud moments at end point, so many families were cheering each other on.
Always glad to celebrate the kids’ little milestones, be it to complete the race, improve their timings, or simply just to enjoy a family day out at the Zoo.
The Family who keeps fit together stays strong together.
Runners’ tickets entitled us to complimentary entry at Singapore Zoo. We pop by our favourite corner “Fragile Forest” again.
Our family is keeping fit with more jogging and cycling activities (click hyperlink), do visit our 2015 Zoo Run experience here.
Traffic management has improved, there is a temporary carpark to house more cars. Shuttle bus will bring families to the Zoo. Previously, if we were late, it means we have to park as far as 1.5km away and walk 🙂
Once again, thank you to Singapore Zoo for the Fun invitation!
Have you heard of Singapore Zoo Run? Zoo Run 2015 will be the seventh edition.

The race was first started to remember Ah Meng, Singapore Zoo’s (and I dare say Singapore) most iconic icon (Orang Utan).
