MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50 to award prizes for top local runners
Supported by MSIG Insurance, National Award prizes will be awarded to the first male and female Singaporean runners to cross the finish line at the Singapore Action Asia 50 race to be held on Saturday, 29 September 2018. As part of the prizes, the two Singaporean winners will get the opportunity to represent Singapore at the Asian Skyrunning Championships – Lantau 50 in Hong Kong on 2 December 2018. Other than the all-expense-paid trip covering air ticket and hotel accommodation, the two winners will each receive a S$300 cash prize and a three-month gym membership at TripleFit. Other new additions to the MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50 this year are the Zero Waste category and a 5km distance for beginners and novice trail runners. Participants who choose to run under the Zero Waste category will voluntarily give up the event T-shirt and finisher’s medal. They will in turn receive a special race bib to recognize their support of the Zero Waste movement. To minimise environmental damage along the route, the MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50 is operating a strict no-cup policy. Runners are advised to bring their own water bottles or hydration packs and refill them at the water check points throughout the course. Find out more here.
