#1 Safari Zoo Run 2020 – Postponed
Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities – Ah Meng the Sumatran orangutan, who passed on due to old age in February 2008.

After the 12th edition of Safari Zoo Run 2020, we will be taking a break to make way for the upcoming Mandai Project, a haven for Singaporeans to celebrate and protect our biodiversity. It’s not goodbye yet, so what better time than now to seize this opportunity to run alongside wildlife. It’s the only race in Singapore that provides you with a unique run experience while doing good for the environment we live in at the same time. So, don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run through Singapore Zoo, River Safari and even Night Safari in the day! Runners can continue to look forward to the sustainable initiatives that will be introduced to this run for wildlife.
