Runs Can Be Fun
Runs don’t have to be dreary and monotonous, at least not in The State of Fun. With a series of themed running events bringing participants across the resort island’s golden beaches and picturesque landscapes, you might just forget that you’re actually having a workout!
The series of running events will kick off on 21 April with The Music Run by AIA, featuring audio speakers along the route to fuel one’s running beat and an epic party at Palawan Green.
Meanwhile, kids who love their sports can make a beeline for the Cold Storage Kids Run 2018! Taking place on 20 May at Palawan Green, Singapore’s first kids-centric run doesn’t just provide young athletes a chance to expose themselves to competition, it also serves as a stepping stone to bigger events for first- time runners.
For some feline fun, consider the Garfield Carnival and Run. To be held on 8 June to celebrate the iconic cat’s 40th birthday, the 3km run will take place alongside a whole line-up of entertainment, attractions, life-sized Garfield photo booths and carnival kiosks, where you stand to win exclusive Garfield 40th Birthday Bash prizes!
Have A Ball Of Time
Sports is most fun when you’re playing with your loved ones – add in the sun, sand and sea and you get an experience like no other! With beach volleyball nets available across the island’s beaches and vast pockets of sandy spaces, there are plenty of opportunities for all kinds of ball and team sports in The State of Fun.
If you are unfamiliar with beach sports and looking for some inspiration to get the ball rolling, head down to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Singapore 2018 at Siloso Beach from 21 to 24 June and catch the lightning fast serves and spikes of the world’s best beach volleyballers. Gameplay aside, spectators can also look forward to clinics, music festivals, and dance parties!
More Unique Workouts
For even more adrenaline pumping sports, check out Flow Jam on 5 May, Wave House Sentosa’s flagship flow boarding competition that features high-performance surf shredding action. In the lead up to the event, Wave House Sentosa will be holding a series of lessons for all, training participants on different tricks and moves progressively each week.
Two-wheeled junkies will also be thrilled to know that the Singapore MX Beach Race 2018, a motocross race on the beach, will be returning for another year. From 5 to 6 May, Siloso Beach will serve as a unique track for racers to battle it out and be crowned the national motocross champion.
Unwind At The Beach
If you’re looking to chill after all the thrills, Sentosa has got you covered. Tanjong Beach Club’s Smack My Beach Up on 29 April will feature a coastal feast with free-flow rosé wine! As a special treat, feed your soul with a complimentary Lululemon yoga session by the beach.
Plus, connect with your inner self on International Yoga Day on 23 June at District 1’s Yoga Fiesta SG 2018. The first stop of its Southeast Asian tour, the event at Palawan Green promises an unprecedented experience of yoga fusions, with celebrity guest instructors, trainers, and booths by the most prominent yoga brands.
If you are into films, or simply looking for a different way to enjoy the sunset, then be sure to head to Tanjong Beach for the Peroni Sunset Cinema from 2 to 13 May. Featuring award-winning new films, DJs, coastal cuisine and sunset drinks, it is no wonder that the inaugural edition was sold out last year. So, be sure to gather your friends and secure your tickets early for a truly memorable cinematic experience.
With such an extensive line-up of activities catering to sports and fitness enthusiasts across all levels of skill and interest and an entire spectrum of sports, Sentosa is the place to be to reconnect with the pure, unadulterated joy of sports.
