Run For Light 2020 Going Virtual on 25 July, Saturday
Firstly, please accept our sincere apology for taking longer than expected to make this important
announcement with regard to Run For Light 2020 event. We have been keeping a close tab on the virus
development since its onslaught. Admittedly, the current situation has made it all the more challenging
to reach a firm decision on whether or not to proceed with the said event scheduled on 25 July 2020,
Saturday at Punggol Waterway. Though the pandemic is seen to be largely under controlled here but
cases within the local community are still happening. On this note, we cannot afford to compromise the
safety of our participants in a mass public event and further, we are not able to visualize if the run can
even materialize before end of this year.

That said, all events have gone the virtual way and without doubt, we are also headed to this direction
too. However, ours will not be geared like any virtual run which you run at your own time and submit
your run data when it is done. We will still schedule Run For Light 2020 on 25 July, Saturday @ 1700 hrs
and we will have ‘LIVE’ streaming of the run on our Run For Light FB page @ Punggol Waterway. This is
to simulate a real event less the crowd for obvious reason.

All our participants who have signed up for either 5KM fun run or 10KM individual run will be given a
personalised link to download prior to the commencement of the event. On 25 July, the dedicated run
app will go ‘LIVE’ at 1700 hrs to enable our runners to start their 5KM or 10KM run at their preferred
venues. The app will capture the actual location, time the run and stops at either 5KM or 10KM. Our
runners can get to view their gender and overall ranking after the event. Participants who have signed
up for the 1KM blindfold walk and Ekiden Challenge (team of 5) will be re-categorized in the 5KM fun
run. This is powered by Sportsplits Real-Time Tracking app and it will be turned on at 1700 hrs until
2359 hrs on 25 July, Saturday. Runners can choose this window to commence their activities at
anywhere they are. Our participants do not need to start exactly at 1700 hrs as long as long as they can
complete their activities before 2359 hrs on 25 July, Saturday.

Race Kit Collection
Although we are into Phase 2 of post Circuit Breaker but we are still unable to proceed with the second
round of race kit collection for those who have yet to collect theirs. Therefore, we have decided to mail
out the event tees together with the run medals. Those who have already collected their race kits, we
will send out the medals only.

In Conclusion
Year 2020 is supposed to be the 5 th Edition of Run For Light and although COVID-19 has largely altered
the entire plan, we are determined to conclude the event on a high note. We hope to see all our
runners from wherever they are joining us ‘LIVE’ on Run For Light FB on 25 July @ 1700 hrs and run a
good race. Thank you for your support and we will come back strongly in 2021.
