About Stroller Race Singapore
The Stroller Race Singapore is a community event that fills a gap in the current racing scene by allowing young families to participate in races together with their children, or to simply lead active lives as a family unit.
The biggest downside to most fitness regimes or preparations for a racing event is the amount of training that is required, and the fact that it is often done alone. With so many races in Singapore’s sporting calendar, there is no event that allows families to participate and compete together, with children as part of the main event.
The Stroller Race seeks to build an exciting event around a common family utility that almost all families with young children have. Known by many names, the use of strollers, prams, or pushchairs can be challenging, let alone running with it in a race along a designated route. The Stroller Race therefore encourages families to form a team and race to the finish in the fastest time possible around the Sports Hub and Kallang district. Parents and children can look forward to a fun-filled experience running with their strollers though iconic Singapore landmarks such as the Sports Hub, Kallang and the Benjamin Sheares Bridge before ending off at a carnival at the OCBC Square at the Sports Hub.
Along the route, families will encounter themes of “Love & Respect”, “There for each other”, “Determination” and “Togetherness” as a reminder of the important characteristics that bond families and allow them to support one another. Children will also develop a better understanding and appreciation of active living, inspiring them to make healthier lifestyle choices in the future.
We recognize that not all families would be competitive. We therefore mapped out three categories – a 5km competitive route, family run and a non-competitive stroller walk category. Families can choose to participate as a parent and child team or as family team of three or more.
Not forgetting the little ones, a kids dash category has been added so our little guys can get in on the action. We have age appropriate events for children between 2 to 12 years of age with distances ranging from 50m to 800m. Exciting prizes awaits all participants!
