What is the Safari Zoo Run?
As a family, we have participated in the Standard Chartered Kids Race in 2011 and Cold Storage Kids Run in 2014. Although we are not professional athletes, our experiences of participating in such races have been very fulfilling. Besides encouraging active lifestyles, running is a wholesome way to bond and create happy memories with our families. Our next race will be the highly anticipated Safari Zoo Run 2015 which was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and most adored personalities — Ah Meng the Sumatran orang utan who died of old age in February 2008.
When will it be held?
This year’s Safari Zoo Run will take place across two days on 7 and 8 February 2015.
Where is the race held?
Venue : Night Safari and Singapore Zoo
80 Mandai Lake Road
All runners will race past animal exhibits through meandering paths lined by greenery in Night Safari and Singapore Zoo.

Families can take part in the ‘Best Dressed Runner’ Contest and join in the Safari Zoo Run Carnival (bazaar, mascots’ meet and greet sessions, fun fair stations, educational stations, and exciting performances) after the race.
What does the race registration kit include?
Each participant will receive an exclusive dri-fit Safari Zoo Run singlet or T-shirt (worth $24.90) and other attractive goodies including discounted admission to Night Safari or a chance to stroll through River Safari in the evening.
