Star Wars-Themed Run Coming To Singapore This May

By Ciaran Duggan,

A Star Wars-themed run is due to take place in Singapore on May 6 as part of 'May the 4th' celebrations this year. 

Participants can choose to run either a 4.5 km route, where runners can decide whether to join the Rebellion on a "Light" side track or whether to take a walk on the "Dark" side with the Empire.

Runners can also compete in a more challenging 10km route if they so choose. 

Each participant will be eligible to obtain an exclusive 'Light' or 'Dark' side bundle of running gear. The bundle includes a drawstring bag, towel, plush toy and a limited edition finisher's medal for the 4.5km and 10km run respectively.

The run is being jointly co-ordinated by the Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia and the local race organiser Esprimo.

Part of the reason behind the organisation of the Star-Wars themed run is the fact that this May will mark the 40th anniversary of the cinematic release of Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope.

Early-bird registration commences today until March 12. Ticket prices have started at $65 for the 4.5km track and $70 for the 10km run.
