STAR WARS RUN Singapore 2017
As part of the festival, the inaugural STAR WARS RUN at The Meadow on May 6 aims to captivate both amateur and professional runners, as well as STAR WARS fans with fun experiences, themed around the brand’s memorable stories and out-of-this-world characters.
With two distances – 4.5km or 10km – to choose from, this is a run for every age and strength level. Participants can choose to experience the 4.5km route, joining the Rebellion on their plight for justice on the Light side, or walk in Darth Vader’s footsteps to uncover the great powers of the Dark side. For the test of ultimate endurance, choose the 10km competitive route which passes through a section of the 4.5km Dark side thematic route.
A kaleidoscope of colours will light up the night sky as pyrotechnics goes off at flag-off of the 4.5km Dark and Light side routes as well as the 10km competitive route. Participants and spectators should keep an eye out for Chewbacca and Kylo Ren as they will both be flagging-off the STAR WARS RUN.
With engagement zones on both the Dark and Light side routes, a visual spectacle awaits as each zone comes alive with light projections, music as well as photo opportunities with STAR WARS themed surprises.
After the run, the fun-filled night continues at the race village with STAR WARS themed activities, interactions, food and beverages as well as an outdoor movie screening of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Runners with their race bib will gain access to the exclusive meet and greet zones at The Meadow for photo opportunities with Chewbacca and Kylo Ren.
