Singapore Fun Run Activities – Singapore is no stranger to Fun Runs and there are many Singapore running events nowadays, a few past events from this year include Pokémon Run, Snoopy Run and Hello Kitty Run. I find it a win-win situation because you get to be entertained by your beloved character while keeping fit and the best part is that everyone who completed the race is a winner everyone gets a medal at the end for most fun races.
Hello Kitty Run 2018 Singapore – A few Sundays ago I took part in the Hello Kitty Race and would like to share my experience because it was my first ever themed run. It all started with my friend wanting to take part in a competitive race and asked if I would like to join her, knowing that we weren’t in the right physic to keep up with competitive races I suggested participating in a fun run instead.
Spacebib – The Best Sporting Events Website in Asia – Spacebib is an online platform that lets you discover, join and experience sporting events within a few clicks. My friend brought her tablet to a café and there we came to know about Spacebib while browsing the internet.
Going thru the process of hello kitty run registration was done at ease and you are also able to register for races on behalf of your friends on the platform saving us the trouble of registering a separate account. Efficient and secure, perfect.
A confirmation slip of your hello kitty fun race registration purchase is sent via email to you once the transaction has been successful. I truly enjoy going thru the listing of spacebib, and discovering and registering for future sporting events. The details of each event are always clearly stated and at a glance you are able to see the price range from free to paid events.
Hello Kitty Run Singapore Race Organisers – It began to rain at about 4am in the morning, I knew that because I was awakened by the sound of thunder. The organizer Pink Apple Pte Ltd were very responsible, they sent out SMSs at 6:53 AM stating that they are monitoring the situation, about an hour later we received another message that the race will carry on.
Running in The Rain – My friend and I reached The Promontory at Marina Bay at 7:30 am and were part of the first flag-off at 8:35 am, it was light rain, so we were advised by the organizer to walk instead of the run due to the ground being slippery. A Hello Kitty Mascot made an appearance and the crowds cheered for her as she prances across the stage and danced. Undamped by the weather everyone was raring to go, many continued to jog the entire race while others walked with ponchos and umbrellas. Thankfully the skies did clear an hour into the race.

Ready To Go! Picturesque 5 KM race – Walking pass the art science museum singapore, Gardens By the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and Marina Barrage was epic, one can’t help but admire the sights and sounds, the scenery of open sea and greenery was a nice change from the constraints of office life. The lotus pond Art Science Museum is my favourite area, the pink and purple shades of the lilies and lotus brings a sense of calm and relaxation to one’s senses.
The Beautiful Hello Kitty Race Pit Stops – In this 5KM – There were a total of 3 pit stops, Durian Zone, Lemon Zone and Strawberry Zone, all decked with stunning balloon arches with colours that represent the fruit, water stations were situated within these pit stops serving various flavours of teas from Pokka’s range of beverages as well as water. My favourite is the strawberry station because it had a cut-out stand of hello kitty dressed as a strawberry.

Lively Post-Race Carnival – We finished the race at about 9:50AM, collected our medals and headed on to the carnival, we were handed out ice popsicles, apples, and Pokka tea as we made our way to the carnival. There were several tents conducting games and selling products from the various sponsors and a live performance; a duet singing popular tunes of today.
The downside to the event was after the heavy downpour the field was very muddy and full of holes making it difficult to navigate around the area. We took a gif photo which cost us $5.00, a little disappointing because you could barely see our faces in the photo, not very well done but I guess everything was done in a hurry with many others waiting for their turn. The muddy environment was too much for us as the afternoon sun rose we made our way home.
Although exhausted, sweaty and drizzled in rainwater, we had fun and would definitely take part in the next Fruitful Hello Kitty Run Event, the medal is so adorable! A race where everyone is a winner? Count me in!
