Singapore’s First Ever Green Corridor Run

27 Nov

Green Corridor RunI’ve recently been doing a bit of running. It has never felt natural to me but with a bit of perseverance I actually feel like I am getting somewhere. Feeling fit and healthy is a wonderful side effect. Now I’m starting to think about fun runs and perhaps really testing my skills. Enter the Green Corridor Run, held in Singapore’s amazing green corridor.

Singapore has a green corridor that runs the entire length from the Tanjong Pagar Rail Station to the old Bukit Timah Rail Station. My brother, Ben Williams, has been given permission to hold the inaugural Green Corridor Run on Sunday 27th January 2013.

Once the beginning of a rail network that extended all the way to Russia, I’m told the uninterrupted stretch of ecological and culturally significant land has been re-surfaced to allow the community access to a ‘Green Corridor’ through the city. The Nature Society of Singapore is the official charity partner, always nice to give back to the environment that you are in.

From the pics it looks amazing and I am pulling all stops, calling in all favours to get there in January! You can enter here and read more about the event here. And for those foodie readers, what a perfect trip – exercise during the run then visit the amazing hawker markets to ‘recover’!

If you have friends in Singapore, be sure to send them this link! It’s going to be a great event.
