Hello Kitty Run Singapore is back - but not without change!

The organisers of Hello Kitty Run Singapore have introduced a new concept whereby participants will have to complete a five kilometre route once more, but not under the scorching sun this time round as it will be held at night.

First held in 2014, the Run took place in Sentosa and had attracted over 17,000 participants.

This year's Run will see participants starting and ending at The Float at Marina Bay on Dec 19, thus providing fans the opportunity of celebrating the second edition of Hello Kitty Run Singapore as a prelude to Christmas.

The race pack that each participant will get is designed with Hello Kitty fans in mind. Runners will each receive an exclusive T-shirt, a special limited edition Christmas-themed Hello Kitty plush toy, race bib, medal, as well as a Hello Kitty shoe bag.

At the end of the Run, Hello Kitty fans will also be able to attend a carnival featuring activites fit for the family.

Pre-registration rate begins at $65 per person and is now open on the official website, www.hellokittyrun.com.sg, until Oct 2.
