Here’s a little extra incentive to work out this year, especially if you’re a fan of a certain spinach-eating sailor who loves to flex his biceps.  

The Popeye Virtual Run is ongoing in Singapore from now to Mar 31. 

Participants can receive prizes based on the distance they have completed, which is divided into the categories: 5km, 21km and 100km.

Prizes will be mailed directly to participants’ doorstep. They include finisher medals, event jerseys, water bottles and drawstring bags. The prizes are sorted into three categories of designs: Strong Man, Pop Art and Classic. 

Modifications to the prizes, such as adding long sleeves and engraving your name, can also be done for a small fee.

To receive the prizes, participants are required to run the targeted distance and submit proof of their achievement before Mar 31. Results from both step trackers and running apps are accepted. 

Participants are allowed to run anytime and anywhere, as long as they submit their results by the stipulated deadline. 

The Popeye Virtual Run is organised by JomRun Running Club, a Southeast Asian running app that allows runners to keep track of running events and purchase merchandise. Interested participants can register here. Alternatively, you may also register on the Android app, iPhone app or Huawei app
