THE Straits Times Run at the Hub is back and those wanting to make a date to be at the Sept 27 event can do so from today.
Runners can choose to be in a 5km fun run, a 10km competitive run or sign up for an 18.45km celebratory route to mark the 170th anniversary of ST, founded in 1845. All runners will get to end their run under the National Stadium's iconic domed roof.
Registration fees range from $48 to $68, with each participant receiving runners' entitlements worth close to $400, including a New Balance running vest and Chan Brothers travel vouchers.
In addition, those taking part in the 18.45km race will get a limited edition finisher's T-shirt.
As a bonus, each runner also stands a chance to win a Land Rover Discovery Sport. Those interested can log on to www.straitstimes run.com to register.
Said Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez: "As before, we want the run to be fun, as well as good value for our readers. So we have worked with our partners to put together a good package for those who sign up, from the sports gear to goodie bags to chances to win great prizes."
Consumer electronics giant Panasonic will back the run for the third consecutive year. Panasonic Singapore director Daniel Tan said: "Following Panasonic's philosophy and beliefs, we are devoted to creating 'A Better Life, A Better World'. We aim to take the lead in bringing innovation, eco and smart solutions that help to improve people's lives... Believing that a healthy lifestyle is essential to lead a better life, we are happy to be a part of ST Run."
Sports apparel brand New Balance and isotonic drink 100PLUS are back as event partners too. F&N Foods general manager Jennifer See said: "100PLUS is excited to be the official isotonic drink of The Straits Times Run 2015."
New Balance marketing and product manager for ASEAN Eugene Yeo said: "As a leader in performance running, it is only natural that New Balance works with the biggest newspaper in Singapore to bring the best experiences to runners."
