Run for Inclusion 2021
The national running event where participants run alongside runners with special needs, including the hearing, intellectually, physically and visually-challenged.
For the seventh consecutive year, Runninghour is organising Run for Inclusion 2021, the national running event where participants run alongside runners with special needs, including the hearing, intellectually, physically and visually-challenged. This year, the event will be held at the 124-hectare grounds of event partner Singapore Turf Club, Singapore’s only horse racing club that also offers unique experiences to members and visitors.
The event seeks to promote the integration of Persons with Special Needs (PWSN) and empower them to participate in mainstream activities in a bid to nurture an inclusive society to PWSN.
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
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.
