Themed run are popular here in Singapore and it seems apparel sponsored races are just as popular if not more. Ever since Mizuno kicked off its Mizuno Wave Run, the other apparels have jumped on the bandwagon. There was Nike with its Nike We Run and Nike Women Run, Adidas with its King of the Road Series, Newton Challenge, Brooks Happy Run and now the latest to join the club Puma with its inaugural Puma Night Run.
To kick off its first race in Singapore, Puma has seen it fit to have it at Sentosa instead of the usual Marina Promenade. It promises a challenging route with a portion of the route that is normally not opened to the public and a prize money of up to $9,000.00. On top of that, participants can get to party at the Sentosa Wavehouse with performances by local acts plus go wave surfing of course.
On top of the unique race experience, for those wondering what their $59 registration fee will get them, there is a Puma tee, Puma shoe bag and a Puma towel. Plus of course the usual medal and other sponsored gifts and vouchers.
To ensure there is no over-crowding and participants get to enjoy the experience, entry is limited to only 3000 participants. Registration closes 14 September 2014 so for those looking for a different running experience in a different setting, this could be it.
