Since inception, Run For Light has always been the ‘beacon of light’ to the visually impaired ones through our long term partnership with Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS).
The 8th edition of Run For Light has fused ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ together, thus the theme for 2023 – Your Heart Matters! Through Run For Light event, it is hoped the combination of ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ will reach out to our community to exercise empathy & compassion to those who are less privileged than us as well as to stay active & healthy for our heart sake.
Supported by SportSG, Run For Light 2023 is scheduled on 18 March, Saturday at Punggol Waterway Park at 1700 hour. In partnership with Jalan Kayu CSN for the first time, the annual run event will engage Punggol and Jalan Kayu residents to participate in the event as part of community engagement.
The event will mark the return of the symbolic 1KM blindfold walk to be led by a guide dog & its visually impaired handler from GDS at the iconic Punggol Waterway. Participants are teamed up in pairs will join the walk contingent comprising the guide dog & its handler and volunteers from GDS.
After the blindfold walk, 5KM fun run and 10KM competitive run will follow suit. Top 5 finishers in men’s and women’s 10KM category win plaques and prizes. To commemorate the event’s 8th edition, there is a new race category in team challenge which will comprise of 8 members of mixed gender with each member running 10KM at the same time. The combined timing of the 6 fastest runners in the team will determine the team final standing. The top 3 teams win plaques and prizes.
The route is staged at the iconic Punggol Waterway Park when the sun is set to retreat to a cool evening run. There are plenty of fun and interesting activities at Punggol Town Square where participants will gather after completing the walk or run.
There is also a virtual 5KM or 10KM run catering to those who prefer to run at their own time and chosen route. It is not a competitive race and virtual participants only need to submit screenshot results taken from their own GPS devices to the link provided.
