Race Virtually at Run for Inclusion 2021

Run for Inclusion is the largest inclusive running event in Singapore where participants run alongside runners with special needs, including the hearing, intellectually, physically and visually challenged. This year, it will feature a virtual event where participants can race at their own pace and comfort. Participants can choose to take part in either of the two event categories; the 0-10km running or 0-20km cycling categories.

To date, over 1,000 participants including 824 persons with special needs have registered for the virtual event. The event aims to reach out to 2,000 participants, including 1,000 special needs participants and their caregivers.

Following the tradition of previous years’ runs, Runninghour will offer complimentary entries to all PWSN and their caregivers for the event, limited to one caregiver per PWSN, to encourage more PWSN to participate in the event and to promote inclusivity and an active lifestyle within the community. This is made possible in partnership with Central Singapore Community Development Council under the ‘SoleMate’ programme.

Participants will be required to upload proof of their attempted distance and date upon completion of their race on JustRunLah’s website to receive the race medal.

Unique to this year’s RFI, used horseshoes from Singapore Turf Club, the oldest existing and only horse-racing club in Singapore, will be given a new shine and upcycled as race medals. Participants will receive the limited-edition commemorative medal, making it a meaningful and lucky memento for all. Singapore Turf Club is Run for Inclusion 2021’s official Event Partner.

Registration for the virtual event will close on 14 December 2021. Sign up here.

Runninghour is supported by SportCares and Central Singapore Community Development Council.

Date: 21 November to 31 December 2021 (Virtual Edition)
