Run for Fun at Sentosa’s Family-Friendly Athletic Event

Family on the plane and ready for their fun athletic eventHolidays mean different things to different people, specifically in how they spend that precious down time. Some people prefer to kick back and relax before work and school fill their schedules again. Others like to go out and spend time doing more active stuff, not wanting to waste time doing nothing.

For families who are fans of the latter, Sentosa has the perfect venue for your outdoor holiday plans. The Cold Storage Kids Run has been an established kids-focused running event since 2008, attracting over 48,000 children and 128,000 family members for the past nine years.

If there’s ever an ideal time to engage kids in the benefits of physical activity, this is it.

Putting a Spin on Fun Runs

The Cold Storage Kids Run is celebrating ten years of healthy lifestyle this year, launching the event in a new location at Palawan Green, Sentosa. An earlier start time of 7:15 AM ensures a lively and fun experience for families, without inconveniencing regular traffic routes.

As an added incentive for families’ participation, Sentosa offers exciting kids activities in its famous attractions post-event. Families are entitled to discounts for KidZania Singapore, Mega Adventure, Madame Tussauds, 4D Adventure land, and Go Green Segway as part of the event package.

Family-Friendly Athletics

The Kids Run event consists of two categories, Competitive and Non-Competitive. The Competitive category is divided into fruit-themed sub-categories such as Sporty Apple 1.6km (for kids 9-10 years old), Speedy Orange 1.6km (11-12 years old), etc.

To encourage their competitive instinct, a Sprint Grading Challenge is included in the event, awarding participants with customised certificates indicating their name, timing, and grade.

The Non-Competitive event has parents (one or both) joining their children for a 800m run, with sub-categories based on the kids’ ages.

Freebies Galore

All participating children get free entry to Sentosa, along with Sentosa Express and freebies like event tees, bags, water bottles, certificates, and vouchers. Adults will receive free entry to Sentosa and other freebies as well.

Events like the Cold Storage Kids Run is an excellent way to spend the holidays, not least because of Sentosa’s fun-filled attractions awaiting the family beyond the finish line.
