A Run with Nature

Saturday 30 April saw over 2600 runners participating in an unusual but novel race. Unlike many other marathons, the Energizer Singapore Night Trail allowed participants to immerse themselves in the natural wilderness as they ran through Singapore’s Night Safari with only the moon and a headlamp as their guide.

 

As this was the first ever night trail run to be held in Singapore, participants in the two main competitive categories had to familiarise themselves with the coarse landscape.

 

Running through the pitch-dark forest, they had to battle the rough gravel terrain, hilly tarmac and the jungle air. Though it was a daunting task, the runners truly appreciated the thrill of running a race through a forest.

 

It was more than a race as this event also saw participants from The Singapore Association for the Deaf and the Singapore Disability Sports Council blazed the trail together with other non-competitive runners as they aimed to share with others that the disabled can still lead a fulfilling life.

 

The Night Trail also had another unique adventure installed for participants as a specially designed 1.6KM obstacle course saw individuals as well as parents and their children teaming up to conquer various hurdles that not only required brute strength and physical abilities, but rather teamwork and coordination skills.

 

Attracting sports fanatics from across the region including the Philippines, Indonesia and India, the inaugural night trail was a huge hit as apart from the runs and obstacle course, it was also a night of fun as participants and supporters were treated to a memorable evening during the Energizer Never Say Die Carnival.

 

Speaking to Mr. Stephen Minardi, General Manager of Energizer Singapore he said, “I could not be more proud of my team for successfully executing the inaugural Energizer Singapore Night Trail. This fun-filled event for family and serious competitive athletes was a great showcase for our products. More importantly was our ability to give back to the community by supporting the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC). It was very moving for me personally to have raced alongside the SDSC athletes.”
