When it comes to local races, inevitably one thinks of Marina Bay or East Coast Park. Occasionally we have races at Sentosa or Punggol but Seletar Aerospace? The bikers are going to be real upset but yes the Puma Night Race now in its 3rd year is going to be at a brand new race site at Seletar! Taking participants along the fringe of the Seletar Airport and through clusters of preserved black and white colonial houses, runners can look forward to sights and sounds that are different from the usual cityscape at the first-ever run held at the industrial park, including the occasional takeoffs and landings of private jets.
Can’t believe that the last time I ran there was way back in 2008 when the Seletar still comprises of East & West Camp and there was only a small aerospace industry then.
“The PUMA Night Run series has always been known to incorporate an element of fun and thrill and we’re thrilled to bring the night race to a brand new location,” says Mr. Gabriel Yap, Head of Marketing PUMA Southeast Asia. “With new race categories and an interesting backdrop for this year’s race, we’re really excited and I’m sure participants will enjoy the experience we have installed this August!”
Not just a new route but new race categories. Early bird registration for the PUMA Night Run Singapore 2016 is now open and interested runners can sign up via www.puma-nightrun.com.sg. So what are you waiting for?
