Get a running start to the Chinese New Year with Singapore Sports Hub. Kick-off the year with a prosperous 888-metre run with family and friends, followed by some watery fun for a splash of good luck. Then, dive into delicious festive fare at the mall and at night fall, grab a good spot to watch the National Stadium dome come alive as you bask in its golden glow.
Huat Run 一路发
Start a new Chinese New Year tradition with family and friends to welcome good health and wealth every year!
Go on a Huat Run around the 100PLUS Promenade and for that extra huat factor, run on the 888-metre red ‘prosperity’ lane that circles the Promenade.
The first 88 participants to complete the huat run between 6 and 26 February will each receive a festive F&N goodie bag. All you have to do is take a picture with the prosperity pineapple placed along the route, post it on your Instagram account with the hashtags #AllLaiRun and #MySgSportsHub and show it to our customer care officers at the Visitors Centre to redeem your gift. The top three posts with the most “likes” stand to win red packets, with the biggest “ang pow” worth $288. Get more information here.
