Parkrun Singapore, Health and Community for Residents and Visitors

Updated: Apr 15

Parkrun Sinagpore

If you are in Singapore, resident or on a visit, a 5km (3 mile) Parkrun is a great way to enjoy a run. To meet the local running community as well as those visitors to Singapore who love to Parkrun.

Singapore has 3 Parkruns: West Coast, Bishan (central) and East Coast. Every Saturday morning, flag-off at 7.30am. No matter where you live, you're just a short ride from a Parkrun. Be sure to register online and secure your barcode before arrival. If you are a visitor to Singapore you will likely need a taxi to get to a Parkrun. Whilst there is no downtown Parkrun, any of the 3 locations are no more than a 15 minute taxi ride early on a Saturday morning and you'll be made to feel welcome when you arrive.

As always, we advise that if you are considering changing your diet, exercise or lifestyle practices, please discuss plans with your primary medical practitioner before making any changes.
