November 5, 2015

It seems like almost everyone’s been bitten by the running bug, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s less hazy now, so let’s hope it stays this way as we usher in the new year. But before we indulge in all the festivities (read: food) that December has to offer, perhaps you’d like to partake in some of the running events happening this month so you won’t feel so bad stuffing your face with honey baked ham, log cakes and what-not during the holiday season. As naggy is this is going to sound, most of us aren’t getting enough exercise as we should be, that’s why social runs like these 14 exist; to get our lazy bones working again.

One particular social running event that stands out this month is the homegrown ILLUMI RUN. Now in their third year, Singapore’s ultimate party run will be lighting up the night at the F1 Village on 28 November. They’ve already had a good run on international soil in the past few months, entertaining crowds in Brisbane, Beijing and Guangzhou.

This year, My AOS Collective DJs will be on deck at the various ultraviolet music zones of the non-competitive run where participants will be splashed with ILLUMI “Glow Water” as they make their way to the finish line. Expect glow zones like the Rainbow Tunnel and Psychedelic Pit throughout the race course. Another first is the Neon Rainforest, where runners will run through a one-of-a-kind “Glow Water” shower. On turntable duty this year is DJ Andrew T, who will open for the event at a pre-run segment, and Rave Republic, who will end the night at a massive party within the F1 Race Village. An additional 500 slots has been open for those who didn’t manage to register in time. At $78 per person, click here to participate. http://illumirun.com/sg/
