The Marina Run 2014

Kick start your new year with the first Half Marathon, 10km & 5km Fun Run of 2014 ! The Marina Run is considered to be one of the most scenic half marathons & 10Km race in Singapore, bringing together spectacular river front views and quaint waterfront communities. It is flat and fast and should inspire a few PB times. The 2014 race will be centred around two main themes, the 5km "Wet & Wild" Fun Run and the 10km & 21km "Light up the Nite" Run.

Epic ESR seeded Runner's Social Responsibility (RSR). A series of initiatives to allow runners impact the larger community through recycling used running shoes.

Marina Run 2014 hopes to reach out to these runners who own these shoes and donate them to rural communities in Manila, Philippines through Oikos Helping Hand organization.

Old Shoes, New Life !

In affluent Singapore, it is common for most of us to own more than 10 pairs of shoes. Many of us probably own a few pairs of running shoes & sneakers for various terrains and racquet sports. Yes, we are indeed very blessed.
As runners, we rotate our shoes so that we get 'mileage spread' across them. A serious runner can easily clock 50km or more per week. As a result, these running shoes get worn out quickly. They may look fine but the shoe's cushioning and shock absorbency may have deteriorated. We know when our legs tell us if any one pair feels extra stiff that their running lifespan is over.
These running shoes either become walking shoes or get thrown away. By estimation of our running population in Singapore, we have easily tens of thousands of these lying around. Marina Run 2014 hopes to reach out to these runners who own these shoes and donate them to rural communities in Manila, Philippines through Oikos Helping Hand organization. You can read more about them here;

Many of the villagers do not even have the basic necessities in life that we take for granted here in Singapore. Now is the time for us to give these communities the "extra mileage" by blessing them with your shoes. Your shoes donation will go a long way in helping the needy and the underprivileged.
Epic ESR seeded Runner's Social Responsibility (RSR). A series of initiatives to allow runners impact the larger community either through recycling used running shoes, Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) to cut down cup wastage thereby reducing our carbon footprints here on Earth.
So do your part for the larger community. Give your used running shoes to Marina Run 2014 during our race expo "Old Shoes New Life!" Anyone can drop by and contribute. See you with the Race Expo.

Thank you.
Team Epic ESR
