Say goodbye to the Rail Corridor at this run

As the Rail Corridor is getting ready to shut down next year for a slightly too-slick redevelopment, say-goodbye runs and walks seem to be proliferating. It started with these two events, and now add to that the Compressport Rail Corridor run on Jan 31 at 8am.

Here’s the deal: this 10km run starts from the Bukit Timah Railway Station to the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, and the terrain isn’t going to be easy as you will run on crushed stones where the railway used to travel on (remember to get great trail running shoes or suffer from blisters). But the view makes up for everything. If you can’t handle the 10km one, there is also a 5km one that ends at the open-air carpark at Queensway Road, which is near Queensway Shopping Centre. There will also be water points at intervals in case you get parched.

You can register for the 5km run at $39, while the 10km run costs $59. The early bird offer ends on Dec 31.
