The train line that used to stretch from the southern regions of the island at Tanjong Pagar and towards the northern borders of Malaysia may be no more — but it makes a sweet running route now.
That’s why we’re sad to hear that the beloved race along the 10.5km route — Green Corridor Run — is going into its last iteration next year on Mar 6. The rail corridor itself will be closed after the race in 2016 for the construction of the Murnane pipeline, which will run along the lower half of the route.
As usual, participants will be starting the run from the Tanjong Pagar Rail Station and will continue down the lush, green stretch before ending at the Bukit Timah Rail Station. The Green Corridor Run will also once again be held in conjunction with Singapore’s World Water Day celebrations to raise awareness and advocate for sustainable management of freshwater resources.
Number of participants are limited — you can secure your spot in the race by registering now on the Green Corridor Run website.
