While Lazada’s many deals may have you running to their online platform, their newest event will have you running differently. Lazada is introducing Lazada Run to Singapore, where running enthusiasts can satiate their running desires and experience some unique features as part of the race.
It is the company’s first Southeast Asia-wide running event, and the Singapore edition will happen on 23 July 2023 at Marina Barrage! With this being a multi-country race, Singapore marks the final stage where runners from Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Malaysia will compete for the ultimate prize of US$3,500 for 10 km and 21 km distances.
In addition to the 10km and 21km races, Lazada Run also features a 5km race category and a special 650m Kids Dash for children aged 5-12, which means the whole family can take part!
Features of the Lazada Run
One of the key highlights of the race is that participants can get to soak in the sights of Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, the National Stadium and the beautiful beaches of the East Coast Park as they run their route.
But the scenic landmarks aren’t the only things that will catch the eye. Placed along the marathon race routes are special “Add to Life” arches; passing through these points before stipulated timings earns runners a chance at winning additional prizes.
Another novel race feature presents itself halfway through the race: pacers with Lazada vouchers strapped to their waist are introduced for participants to snag. Only a limited amount of them are available, so the fastest hands (or legs!) will manage to get them!
Participants who sign up will also be given a race pack collection worth over S$100, including goodies such as a PUMA running tee, race bib, tote bag and a finisher medal. To reduce the event’s carbon footprint, these packs can be collected island-wide at SingPost POPStations at participants’ convenience.
Maybe you haven’t been running for some time. Not to worry! To prepare runners for this event, Lazada has also partnered with the Running Department, Singapore’s largest running club, to organise a series of running clinics to help participants build up their performance. These clinics are happening from June to July, with a total of four sessions that runners can sign themselves up for.
Besides the primary races, participants and spectators can check out the Race Village sector, which will feature stage entertainment and include a mass warm-up session led by a fitness influencer. There will also be pop-up shops by brands and sellers on Lazada to visit too!
Perhaps the most exciting notable highlight in the Race Village is the “Cart Dash”, where participants race with each other to collect items on a shopping list to win prizes.
Whether you are excited about the marathon experience or eager for the discounts available, Lazada Run presents a unique running experience to try!
