TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Singapore is a country of great diversity. Much of this can be attributed to her history since the founding of modern Singapore in 1819. From her humble beginnings as a quiet fishing village, Singapore is now among the global leaders in education, financial, and competitiveness.

On this running tour, you are running through time and introduced to some of the key events shaping the history of Singapore through the various sights along the way. You will be able to catch a glimpse of the buildings Singapore inherited from our colonial times, and at the same time be overshadowed by modern day buildings which were built in the last 50 years.

As Singapore is a country lacking in natural resources, on this run, you will als be able to appreciate some of the man-made facilities and greenery, which many countries take for granted.
Starting from Clark Quay MRT station, the tour traces Singapore’s old shore line, into the new shore line. The first landmark on the route would be the Statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, who is the founder of Modern day Singapore. We will also run past the Marina Bay Sands, the Merlion, the Gardens by the bay, the Marina Barrage, as well as the Esplanade, all of which are the most famous landmarks in the Singapore city landscape.

The route is generally flat. However, we will be venturing to the top of the Marina barrage to have an elevated view of the city.

  • DO YOU OPERATE THROUGHOUT A YEAR?
    Yes, we run throughout the year. Singapore has a tropical climate and temperature hovers between 23°C in the night to 32°C in the day. Please note that we may have limited services during public holidays.

    HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR A RUNNING EXPERIENCE?
    Please book your tour online on the Go! Running Tours webpage. Your reservation is only confirmed after we have replied to you via email or phone. The total price has to be paid via the website.

    HOW LONG DOES THE RUNNING EXPERIENCE LAST?
    The time taken to complete the run depends on the theme and type of the run you choose. It can range from 45mins to 4 hours. You will be advised of approximate timings before the start of your run when you provide us with more information about yourself.

    WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS FOR MEETING UP?
    While we offer private running experiences, there is no hotel pick-up service as we do not own a vehicle. If you opt for one of our standard running experiences, we will provide you with a fixed meeting point. However, if you would prefer that we meet up at your hotel, we can either conduct the experience near the hotel, or we can take a public taxi from your hotel to one of the routes on our standard running experience menu for an additional fee.
    Singapore is a small country and most of the hotels are in the central area. There is a strong possibility that your hotel is located within 2 kilometres of the standard running routes offered by us, and in those cases, we can begin the experience from your hotel.

    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment, and where required, provide additional customisation to the route.

    HOW DO I IDENTIFY THE RUNNING GUIDE?
    Our running guides are easily identifiable by their Go! Running Singapore T-Shirt and carrying a backpack.

    WHAT IF IT IS RAINING, WILL THE RUN STILL GO ON?
    We will go ahead, rain or shine. However, in very severe weather (to be determined by your running guide), you will be offered to return at a later time or to postpone for another day. You should turn up at the meeting point as usual where your running guide will advise if it is necessary to postpone the run. Our running experiences will usually go ahead, even if it is raining.

    WHAT IF THERE IS HAZE, WILL THE RUNNING EXPERIENCE STILL GO ON?
    We will only go ahead if the PSI Value is between the Good (0-50) and Moderate (51-100) level. You should turn up at the meeting point as usual where your running guide will advise if it is necessary to postpone the run.

    WHAT IF I GET THIRSTY WHILE RUNNING?
    Water points and toilet facilities are located at all of our running routes. Please refer to the respective routes for an indication on at which distance markers these are located. For emergencies, your running guide will carry 2 x 500ml of water with.

    DO WE STOP BY THE ATTRACTIONS ON THE RUN?
    Yes definitely! On our easy runs, we will have short stops at the main attractions for rest and photo-taking.

    DO WE NEED TO CARRY CAMERAS AND PHONES?
    YYes, but we recommend to carry only a smart phone. You can store the phone in our running guide bag. The running guide will also take pictures along the route if you like, and if there is a certain place you would like your picture taken, then simply ask your running guide.

    ARE WE RUNNING THE WHOLE TIME AND HOW WILL I KEEP PACE?
    All our runs will have shorts stops and rest. Our private runs are based on your preference. We can design your running experience so that there are no stops but normally we stop at the important sights for photo-taking. We are always willing to stop or walk if necessary. Please do not worry - we will not leave you behind!

    WHAT KIND OF APPAREL SHOULD I WEAR FOR RUNNING IN SINGAPORE?
    Singapore weather is very sunny with high humidity. We recommend our runners to apply sunblock and wear light, dri-fit apparel, shades and cap for sun-protection. Use of sunscreen is highly recommended.

    ARE THERE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS?
    Yes, you must be at least 18 years of age to book a Running experience. Kids have to be accompanied by their parents or a legal guardian of minor under 18 years.

    HOW IS THE RUNNING CONDITION IN SINGAPORE LIKE?
    Weather in Singapore is hot and humid and this can affect running performance. If you are running at 6:00min/km pace in a colder climate country, it may feel like running at 6:30min/km pace in Singapore.
