SINGAPORE - A record number of 81 parent-and-child pairs took part in the Families for Life (FFL) Challenge today at Safra AVventura, an annual cross-terrain adventure race organised by Safra Yishun and Safra Adventure Club.
Participants had to run, cycle and kayak a circuitous route from Yishun to Woodlands and Mandai and back. Checkpoints along the way required them to solve puzzles and complete challenges such as abseiling and sport climbing.
Mr Lawrence Lim and his son Timothy came in first in the FFL Challenge's Ultra Kids category with a timing of 1:11:47. They were the runner-up at last year's race, which attracted 78 parent-and-child pairs.
The Super Kids category was won by Mr Chua Boon Keat and his son Isaac Emanuel with a timing of 0:49:00.
In the Ultra Men's category, last year's winners Mr Yeo Kim Hong and Mr Hairul Nazwa defended their title after completing a gruelling 52km race route in 4:19:08.
Prizes were presented by Guest-of Honour BG (NS) Tung Yui Fai, vice-president of Safra.
