Runners can look forward to a high energy celebration of sports at the Nike City 10K Singapore, which flags off next to the Marina Bay Floating Platform this Sunday, 24th October. Combining music and sports to give runners an unparalleled experience, the Nike City 10K will see four entertainment zones featuring different genres of music such as Dance, Pop, Rock and Hip Hop along the ten kilometre route
Members of the public can also enjoy a piece of the action by joining the runners for an adrenaline-pumping finale concert at the end of the race. All this action and more will be taking place at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, where award-winning DJ Adrian Wee will spin an array of disco and house music, while Sixx, one of Singapore’s best hip hop bands, will take to the stage with live performances showcasing their fusion of Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and Jazz.
Vijaya Kumar Jayaraj, the Singapore Marketing Manager for Nike, said, “We promise runners a unique experience – a scenic route complete with the best of music entertainment in Singapore. We could not have wished for a more ideal start and finish location, the pride of Singapore that is the Marina Bay Floating Platform, host to international events such as the recent Youth Olympic Games’ Opening and Closing ceremonies.”
The floating platform certainly serves as the perfect end point of a scenic route, which will take runners past iconic sights like the Singapore Flyer and the Formula One pit building, giving them a chance to pound the same track as Formula One superstars Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. Runners will make their way along the Nicoll Highway before making a loop at Kallang Road to embark on a return leg along the Marina Promenade and F1 track that eventually leads back to the floating platform.
