It is already almost a year since the last STAR WARS RUN. It is back with different routes and added a new category for kids. If you have run the first edition, you might already get informed about it today. Read on to check out the new routes.
I really enjoyed the event last year, especially the race village which has many activities. Check out the video I made last year.
This year, the venue will be at the F1 Pit Building and the Marina Bay area.
Pricing-wise, I still think that this running event is on the high side. However, I will still join the race. If you have joined last year, you can click on the link below now to register. If you have not, you will have to wait till 13th February to register.
Check out the race pack items if you join the race. I hope that the quality of the Event Tee will be better this year. For the price of the race, I am hoping to see those dri-fit tee. Last year event tee was a let-down, in my opinion.

Registration Opens for STAR WARS RUNTM Singapore 2018
6 February 2018, Singapore – Registration opens today for the second edition of STAR WARS RUN Singapore. The night run returns on 5 May 2018, with new elements and a different event venue – the F1 Pit Building and the Marina Bay area. Presented by The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia and local race organiser Esprimo, this event is a popular themed run that STAR WARS fans and runners look forward to. With over 15,000 participants in the inaugural edition last year, it has since become a prominent event on the running calendar in Singapore and the region.
Along with the STAR WARS festival happening on May the 4th, STAR WARS RUN Singapore 2018 will bring a unique event themed around the iconic storyline and characters from the franchise. Fun activities at the Race Village include STAR WARS themed activities, interactions, food and beverages as well as an outdoor movie screening of STAR WARS movies.
Participants will be able to pick either route – to join the Rebellion on the Light side, or follow Darth Vader’s footsteps on the Dark side. Both routes will feature engagement zones that will bring the STAR WARS experience to life with music and light projections and fun photo opportunities.
