Getting Prepared for the Run!

Here are some tips to get you prepared:

  • Light stretching / warm-up is necessary before you start
  • Good running shoes that are bendable and absorb shock provide the best support
  • Synthetic socks to prevent blisters and absorb sweat
  • Run For Hope t-shirt that is dry-fit
  • Pen your personal “I run for….” message on your bib
  • Beginners should start slow and not over-exert yourself
  • Other essentials to consider: Cap, shades, poncho

Warm-up Exercise:
Participants are strongly encouraged to do warm-up exercises before the run and cool-down after the run to prevent muscle injury.

First Aid and Medical Posts:
A medical post will be located at the main event area.  First Aid posts will be stationed at various water points throughout the run route.  Ambulances are also parked at strategic locations along the run route.

Safety and Wellness:

  • Participants are responsible for their own safety during the event.  Keep valuables at home.
  • Do warm up before the run and avoid having a large breakfast before running.
  • Keep hydrated.  Water points are available throughout the running route.
  • Other essentials to consider: Cap, sunshades, sun screen, poncho
  • For safety reasons, pets, bicycles, in-line skates, skateboards, shoes with built-in or attached rollers are discouraged from the event.

Dress Code: Sporting Attire
Participants are encouraged to wear the Run For Hope event T-shirt and comfortable running shoes.

Etiquette & Courtesy:
As a courtesy to other runners, come early to avoid delay in flag-off.

Safe-keeping of Belongings:
Baggage tents are available on-site for light baggage only, as space is limited.  Refrain from bringing large bags due to space constraint and do keep valuables at home.  The Organsers will not be responsible for any loss or theft during the event.

Inclement Weather:
The Organisers reserve the right to delay the commencement or cancel the run as a result of bad weather. There will not be a refund of the registration fees.


Thanks for your support & see you soon!

Support the cause close to home and your hearts

Each year, more than 10,000 people in Singapore are diagnosed with cancer. Show your support by registering for Run For Hope 2012, paving the way for a cancer-free future.

According to statistics on lifetime risk reported by many established research bodies of developed countries such as the US, UK and Canada, 1 in 3 people will likely be stricken by cancer. For many of us, cancer is likely to have affected at least a friend or a family member, if not more. At some point in time, we hope we could do more for the cancer sufferer. Some of us feel at loss of comforting words or action.

Supporting the Run For Hope, in aid of the NCC Research Fund, is one way of giving a helping hand and providing hope. In addition, members of the public can also seek cancer information from or NCCS Cancer Helpline Nurses via or call (65) 6225 5655.

Did you know?

This year marks Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and Regent Singapore’s 20 years of running for cancer research! To celebrate their two decades of dedication to the meaningful cause, be ready for a whole new Run For Hope experience this year with a City run.
