What better way to end the year by kickstarting your healthy lifestyle with a marathon? I know, I know – you feel tired already thinking about running a Full Marathon, which is a daunting 42km. However, marathon newbies can choose to do the Half Marathon (21km) or 10km run as well.
The race routes will cover certain historic landmarks in Singapore, so hey, you can get a history lesson on the go too. If running is not quite your thing, you can also hang around the race routes to give runners a bit of moral support.
Dates: 5 & 6 December 2015
Venue: Multiple locations. See here for details.
Admission: From $75. Register here.
