Run For Hope 2020 moved to the First Quarter of 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted running events worldwide, including Run For Hope which was originally scheduled for 23 February 2020. With the complex and evolving public health regulatory environment during this period, we have made the difficult decision to further postpone Run for Hope till the first quarter of 2021 to safeguard the health of our participants.
This decision is in line with the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020, which prohibits all public gatherings to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. The Run for Hope organising committee is committed to providing the safest possible environment for participants and the public and will actively work with the relevant authorities to ensure all necessary safeguards are in place.
If you are already a registered participant, no additional action will be required as your run slot will be automatically transferred to the new date. Please keep a lookout on our website www.runforhope.sg and our Facebook page for further updates on the finalised date.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
