The activity starts with a short warm-up walk via the underground City-Link Mall to the Esplanade, Theatres by the Bay. Upon reaching the waterfront, the Run begins with crossing the pedestrian bridge under the Esplanade Drive, and passing our first land-mark: The Merlion. Within the first kilometer, we will run past these other landmarks: One Fullerton, the refurbished Clifford Pier and The Fullerton Bay Hotel, before making a left turn towards the Marina Bay Promontory. This second kilometer will probably be the best stretch of the run where participants will get an obstructed view of the entire Marina Bayfront and Marina Bay Sands (MBS) with the Financial Centre behind them. As we make another left turn into the third kilometer, runners will get to experience jogging through the MBS complex – the most expensive building in the world at USD5.5billion when it opened in 2010. We will also run pass the iconic Shoppes and Louis Vuitton Island Maison – the largest LV boutique outside of the flagship Paris shop. The unique Lotus-inspired Arts and Science Museum will signal the start of the final kilometer, and it will lead us to the Helix Bridge. Crossing it will bring the group back onto the northern bank of the Singapore river and back towards our hotel and finishing point. Total distance: 3.91km.
