The run takes place from Sept 18 to Oct 31.
The PUB Green Run, formerly known as the Green Corridor Run, will make a comeback as a virtual event this year following a four-year break.
The 24km-long nature trail along the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) was the site of an annual 10km run from 2013 to 2016 before the southern stretch of the Rail Corridor was closed for constructing an underground 22km-long water pipe.
This year, participants are allowed to complete the virtual run at a time and place of their choosing from Sep 18 to Oct 31.
There are two categories this year.
Competitive runners and those looking for a physical challenge are welcome to join the 10km run, while the 3km family run is a non-competitive category to inspire future generations of eco-warriors.
Participants are encouraged to run in green public spaces such as parks connectors and PUB’s reservoir parks. They are also required to record their run route and timing using the PUB Green Run app.
Runners will receive a premium running cap and a uniquely designed eco-friendly finisher’s medal as part of the run pack.
For every sign-up, $10 will be donated to the Nature Society (Singapore). This year’s run has a purpose of funding the rewilding of the Rail Corridor. It is also in support of the nation’s sustainability drive.
President of the Nature Society (Singapore) Shawn Lum said: “By rewilding some stretches of the Rail Corridor and creating a continuous green canopy along it, we aim to enhance the conservation value of the corridor. The effort will also yield a cooler, greener experience for visitors as well as the rare native wildlife species that will travel along it.”
This community-led project of rewilding the Rail Corridor contributes towards NParks “OneMillionTrees” movement of encouraging locals to plant one million trees over a period of 10 years.
