The Singapore Turf Club will be the venue for the eighth edition of Run for Inclusion 2022 on 3 December 2022 from 4.30pm. Singapore Turf Club has partnered Runninghour, an inclusive sports co-operative that promotes the integration of Persons with Special Needs (PWSN) through sports.
President Halimah Yacob, the Guest of Honour, will grace Singapore’s largest inclusive mass running event. Participants will run alongside PWSNs who are hard of hearing, physically, visually and intellectually challenged, as well as persons with autism or undergoing mental recovery across different race categories.
Pick your personalised distance or the standard 3km, 5km, or 10km for your run or walk or join in the 20km cycling with the option to rent a bike. Registration fees start from S$35 excluding service fee.
Runners are invited to take photos at photo-worth sights at the main entrance, parade ring, racetracks, grandstand and the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre Arena. Singapore Turf Club is home to seven world-class racetracks that are spread over 124-hectares of land. That is equivalent to about 232 football fields. Each racetrack is developed for different racing and training purposes. They include the Polytrack, sand track and grass track. Each track is between the 800m to 2000m. STC also houses seven rolling boxes, one sand ring, three sand paddocks, 16 grass paddocks, two swimming pools, two equestrian arenas, about 14,000m² of rubber tile area, 37 kilometres of railings, five rainwater ponds and five hectares of turf nursery.
Race participants will receive a commemorative race medal that is recycled from used horseshoes. Runninghour beneficiaries and STC volunteers jointly cleaned used horseshoes to give them a new shine and turn them into unique and lucky race medals.
The Singapore Turf Club and Runninghour partnership will include Runninghour relocating its head office and operations to Singapore Turf Club as well as direct access and usage of the facilities on the 124-hectares Kranji grounds, enabling them to introduce a greater variety of wellness programmes such as Zumba classes for PWSNs and volunteers. Other projects and activities that will be available include a series of SkillsFuture workshops and a cycling academy, all aimed at promoting the integration of PWSNs with the wider community.
