A Dog’s Day Out

The Snoopy Run is not meant to be a competitive run, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

With the number of runners that attended the event, the run’s appeal to families, small children and the young at heart meant that people from all walks of life attended, and no one was in any hurry to make a dash for it. Many took the opportunity to walk through the route, while more energetic runners made a dash for it. Most chose to brisk-walk though, so it wasn’t entirely a lazy stroll.

With mascots like Charlie Brown and Snoopy making an appearance to welcome and start off the race, the participants were in high spirits, sporting the Snoopy shirts and colourful race bibs from their race packs.

The appearance of the mascots and the run itself meant absolute cuteness, and the race organisers worked hard to maintain the theme. Inflatables could be seen in the race village with multiple runners taking selfies and photos, along with standees of some of the Peanuts gang set up so you could pose alongside them.

Runners also took the opportunity to take their dogs along to the Snoopy Run, which befitted the fact that 2018 was the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar.

All in all, the Snoopy Run was a run that appealed to everybody: Families with small children who love the adorable dog mascot, millennials who wanted photo opportunities, and the young at heart who grew up loving Charles M Schulz’s beloved characters.
