2019 Event Details
The 2019 Run for Light event took place at the Punggol Waterway Park, with races held between 5pm and 10pm on Saturday the 26th of January. The event opened one hour prior to this and the final race began at 6pm. Run for Light features three separate races – a 5km fun run, a 1 km blindfold walk and a competitive 10km run. Instructors were on site for guided warm-up and cool-down sessions before and after the races. Only the 10km run is a competitive, timed event.
