By The Way – Safari Zoo Run

Okay, sometimes we just can’t be too serious. So how about running in memory of the monkey? After all, she did help put the Singapore Zoo – and possibly the rest of our sunny island – on the world map more than any other fancy luminary… even if she had a reputation for being a bit of a hairy prima donna. But a bit of respect for the dearly departed…So back to my question: how about running for the monkey?

Into its 2nd year the Safari Zoo Run takes place on 6 February 2010 (the day she went to the zoo up in the sky) with a Fun Run for adults and older kids (above 10 yrs old) spanning 6.2km the night safari and the zoo routes in total.

What’s more, 10-12 year olds can take part in the first ever aLive Fastest Kid run which takes them through 3.2 km of the night safari route.  Registration has begun and closes on 10 January 2010, with limited places still available. Flag-off is at 3:30pm on 6 February 2010 for the Fastest Kid run, with girls and boys competing in two separate categories.Hopefully the animals in the Night Safari will be kept away to ensure no one becomes the lion’s meal or runs into a lazing rhino…..?

A registration fee of $25 will entitle each kid to a Safari Zoo Run dry-fit running tee, a Safari Zoo Run bib number, a F&N goodie bag on the race day, completion medal. The Fun Run costs $38 to register and flags off at 4pm.

Log onto or pop into any Runninglab or The North Face store to register.
