Your Heart Matters!

Since inception, Run For Light has always been the ‘beacon of light’ to the visually impaired ones through our long term partnership with Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS).

The 8th edition of Run For Light has fused ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ together, thus the theme for 2023 – Your Heart Matters! Through Run For Light event, it is hoped the combination of ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ will reach out to our community to exercise empathy & compassion to those who are less privileged than us as well as to stay active & healthy for our heart sake.

Supported by SportSG, Run For Light 2023 is scheduled on 18 March, Saturday at Punggol Waterway Park at 1700 hour. In partnership with Jalan Kayu CSN for the first time, the annual run event will engage Punggol and Jalan Kayu residents to participate in the event as part of community engagement.

The event will mark the return of the symbolic 1KM blindfold walk to be led by a guide dog & its visually impaired handler from GDS at the iconic Punggol Waterway. Participants are teamed up in pairs will join the walk contingent comprising the guide dog & its handler and volunteers from GDS.

After the blindfold walk, 5KM fun run and 10KM competitive run will follow suit. Top 5 finishers in men’s and women’s 10KM category win plaques and prizes. To commemorate the event’s 8th edition, there is a new race category in team challenge which will comprise of 8 members of mixed gender with each member running 10KM at the same time. The combined timing of the 6 fastest runners in the team will determine the team final standing. The top 3 teams win plaques and prizes.

FAQs

1. I understand the 1KM blindfold walk involves two persons in a team. I have not participated in the blindfold walk, what is the protocol?

As this walk involves two persons, a blindfold will be given to each team. On day of event, one person will be blindfolded while the other member of the team who is sighted will assist him or her during the walk. At half way mark, the role will be switched for the return leg.

2. I can’t run but I am keen to participate. Can I walk?

Of course, you can walk. 5KM is a fun run category and even the competitive 10KM category, walking is still allowed for two distances. The key is to have fun and enjoy the activities.

3. Is 5KM fun run a timed race?

No, there is no timing for 5KM which is a fun run category. Race bib without timing chip is still issued. However, race bib with timing chip for 10KM will be issued, which is a competitive race as there are awards for podium finishers.
