Sweep the clouds away with sunny days ahead with the world’s first Sesame Street Run Tour making its stop in Singapore as part of its Southeast Asia tour following a successful run in the Philippines earlier this month. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Sesame Street Run will make its debut on our sunny island on 17 November 2019 at Our Tampines Hub (OTH).
Fans of the popular American children’s television show can relive their childhood memories by meeting their beloved Sesame Street characters up close without having to make a trip to the US. The 50th anniversary celebrations doesn’t just stop in Singapore. More joy will be spread across to other neighbouring countries such Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia when they host their respective Sesame Street Run events in 2020 next year.
“We are excited to be partnering with the Sesame Workshop to launch the world’s first Sesame Street Run Tour in Southeast Asia for its 50th year anniversary,” enthused Mr. Aaron Goh, Founder of Heroes Pvt Ltd. “This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is not to be missed. Like the iconic television show which has educated and entertained children for over three generations, the run celebrates 50 years of bringing people and the community together through interaction with our favourite Sesame Street characters.”
In contrast to other running events, the Sesame Street Run promises a fun-packed day with loads of activities for the whole family! The five kilometre family run caters to all ages, from first timers to experienced runners. Witness the star studded line up of your favourite Sesame Street characters such as Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Cookie Monster and Grover.
The five kilometre Sesame Street run offers attractive merchandise with different ticket categories that will have you spoilt for choice. With categories ranging from $42 to $126, each ticket category will come with a myriad of colourful items that will have you squealing with delight such as a dri-fit Sesame Street t-shirt, a Sunny Day’s medal, a smart scarf, a pair of socks, a sweatband and more. An e-certificate will also be sent upon completion of the run.
For families with younger children and grandparents in tow, the run will also have separate three and one kilometre leisure walks so everyone can cross the finishing line together!
Registration ends 31 October, so grab your tickets now before they run out!
