We kickstarted 2017 by taking part in the Safari Zoo Run 2017 at the Singapore Zoological Gardens. Although we were no strangers to the venue but definitely it was our very first time to run within the compound. We took part in the non-competitive 2.5km family run this time and it was a wonderful experience running in the "wild" leisurely and made multiple pit stop to take pictures and enjoyed the scenery.
Great weather to start the family run which we had been anticipating for.
Firstly, the kids wanted to take a picture with their favourite Ah Meng coz we were #TeamAhMeng
Everyone waited in an orderly manner for their turns to start the run.
Not forgetting to take more pictures along the way.
After a few experiences of taking part in family runs last year, we decided not to bring water bottles this time coz we knew water refreshment will be supplied by the organiser.
Needless to mention, everyone was so happy to see the word "finish". We made a dash to the finishing line.
Collected the Singapore Zoo Run 2017 Finisher's Medal design and each of us had one more medal to be added to our collection.
One of the highlights of the run we were looking forward to was to gain free access to the Singapore Zoological Zoo and River Safari after the run. The participants did not have to worry about not having enough time to visit all animals in the zoo because they could go in multiple times using their bibs to gain free access.
Food was easily available located near the entrance and we went to replenish our energy at the KFC fast food outlet before venturing back to these two places. Here were some pretty awesome pictures I took on that day:
We are so looking forward to the Safari Zoo Run next year and probably by then, my kids will game enough to take part in the competitive run by themselves.
