Earth Day Run 07


Registration Sites:

Greenbelt 3 (in front of Asics)

**delivery of race kits may take 5-10 days


Things to look forward to:

  • No Paper Registration
Registration will be paper-less and will utilize the biometrics system of registration at Greenbelt 3
  • Water bottle upon registration

This is after all an Earth Day Run, so to make sure we don’t add to the waste by using thousands of paper and plastic cups, the organizers will provide each registered runner with a water bottle which they can bring on race day. Hydration stations will be available in the entire route to refill each participant’s water bottle.


Earth Day Run 06


  • No Motorbikes on Race Day

As part of their contribution to Mother Earth, the organizers have decided to let the marshals only ride bicycles on race day. No motor cycles!

  • Name plates for each donated tree
For each runner who registers for this event, 3 trees will be planted in his/her name. 3 Popsicle sticks will be given to represent each tree upon registration. The registrant can then write his/her name or a loved ones name. These Popsicle sticks will be planted together with the trees. That way, you get to boast of your contribution to Mother Earth!
Earth Day Run 05
I really like the concept of the name plate. Somehow gives runners’ ownership!
