Singapore Kindness Run Post Review

Good running etiquettes should be extended beyond the Singapore Kindness Run.


No selfies were taken during the Singapore Kindness Run

That’s a lie, actually. Selfies were taken, but only before and after the run, and far away from the actual race route.

That’s because taking a selfie while running can actually border on inconsiderate for runners trying to run competitively, and block them from having a good time.

These, as well as other good manners and tips, were some of the few that were touted around and explained to participants before the run started, making sure that everyone was educated before the entire event started.

The Singapore Kindness Run prepared its work on encouraging runners to have good running etiquette, whether through making sure runners disposed of their trash properly, to not spitting at the side of the road when running.

One way of making sure runners kept the good manners protocol was other runners. When the run happened, 15 representatives of the Singapore Kindness Movement and the Runners’ Heart Reach ran with the participants, reminding them about the tips to good manners, including running to the side if they were going to run slower than usual.

Runners were also encourage to use their compassion in a different way: through donations. Pairing up with the charity In My Shoes, runners brought their older shoes to the booth to send to children’s homes and orphanages to provide to those without.

The end of the adult races was stamped into memory when the organizers invited participants to form a giant human daisy to commemorate kindness and love.
