4 Things That Set July’s Lazada Run Singapore Apart From Others
Lazada has announced that its first-ever race, the Lazada Run Singapore will take place on 23 July 2023, and it will be flagged off at the Marina Barrage. Singapore marks the final leg of a multi-country race across Vietnam (23 Apr), Indonesia (11 Jun), Thailand (25 Jun), Philippines (2 Jul), and Malaysia (16 Jul).
During the final race in Singapore on 23 July, the 21KM and 10KM winners (men and women) from across the region will be flown here to compete for the Ultimate Southeast Asia Challenge prize of US$3,500 (21KM) / US$2,000 (10KM) for men, and US$3,500 (21KM) / US$2,000 (10KM) for women. For runners participating in the Singapore leg, have no worries, you will get equal opportunity to compete for the same prize pool too.
In addition to that, the Singapore Winners Prizes are as follows, so if you are up for it, and can come in first place, you’ll walk away with both S$3,000 AND US$3,500 for the 21KM men’s or women’s category respectively.
21KM (men / women)
10KM (men / women)
The 21KM, 10KM and 5KM race route will cover scenic views in Singapore spanning from Marina Bay Sands to Gardens by the Bay, the National Stadium and East Coast Park.
“We are proud to host the finale of Lazada Run in Singapore. This first-of-its-kind race organised by an eCommerce platform is testament to Singapore’s vibrancy and inclusivity in terms of lifestyle offerings and events for all to enjoy. We make it our mission to build deeper connections with our customers and reward them by creating fresh new experiences for them to enjoy, online and offline – we can’t wait to meet more of our customers on 23 July.”
Loh Wee Lee, Lazada Singapore CEO
Since this is Lazada’s inaugural Southeast Asia-wide run, they have gone all out to create a one-of-a-kind run event. Here are four things that set it apart from other run events to date.
#1. Speed Through “Add to Life” Arches To Qualify For Lucky Draws
Look out for three giant “Add to Life” arches at the 5KM, 10KM, and 21KM markers, and run past them within a stipulated cut-off time and be eligible for a lucky draw to win attractive prizes at the end of the race.
#2. Scan, Collect & Grab Vouchers As You Run
Lazada shoppers just love collecting those vouchers, and Lazada knows that, so there will be QR codes for runners to scan and collect at various distance markers throughout the race. But that’s not all, look out for pacers dressed in vibrant clothing (look out for the glowing wristbands and glowing vouchers) who will enter the track during the run. There will be strips of vouchers attached to their waists, so just catch up and grab them before they’re gone!
#3. First-ever Cart Dash At the Race Village
The fun doesn’t end at the end of the race. Apart from the stage entertainment, games and brand booths at the race village, participants can also take part in a first-ever “Cart Dash” activity where they are tasked to fulfill a shopping list. Be one of the fastest to fulfill all items on your list accurately to win prizes!
#4. No Need To Queue For Race Packs!
That’s right, you no longer have to worry about long queues during race pack collection days. Lazada has teamed up with SingPost to enable participants to choose to collect their race packs from any SingPost POPStation of their choice islandwide. Or, if you prefer, you can collect it at Lazada One at 51 Bras Basah Road.
The race pack includes items worth over S$100, a Puma running tee, race bib, tote bag and a finisher medal. Bonus goodies include an Epitex sports towel, Walch sports laundry capsules, VOOST performance tablets, Nature One Dairy Oat Milk, Kose Sekkisei Clear Wellness UV Gel sunscreen, Tryall protein soy chips and a Bioderma anti-irritation skincare kit. An additional yellow Finisher Tee will be issued to runners who have completed the 21KM run too.
Interested runners can register for the race via the Lazada App here. Registrations will close on 30 June 2023. There is a limited time discount on sign-ups now for early birds, at S$70.40 (U.P. S$80) for 21KM, S$57.20 (U.P. S$65) for 10KM, and S$39.60 (U.P. S$45) for 5KM. The 650M Kids Dash (for ages 5 – 12 years old) is fixed at S$35.
