- Updated: April 6, 2015
April 6, 2015: Healthy lifestyle brand OSIM has signed up as title sponsor of this year’s Sundown Marathon, which will be held in Singapore on July 4.
The eighth edition of Asia’s largest night marathon will start at the F1 Pit Building and will feature a new 5KM Fun Run category to encourage beginners.
Lynn Tan, General Manager of OSIM Singapore, said: “Being Asia’s number one healthy lifestyle brand, our aim is to inspire well-being to everyone from all walks of life and we also wish to contribute to Singapore’s running scene in every possible way.
“Sundown Marathon is an innovative and unique run that races through the night, thus challenging runners to do their best to break conventional boundaries and this is in line with OSIM’s spirit, which is to always challenge ourselves to do our best. We look forward to having more runners, both beginners and experienced, to join us at the OSIM Sundown Marathon and enjoy the run in all categories.”
Adrian Mok, Managing Director of HiVelocity Events, owner and organiser of Sundown Marathon, said: “We are very pleased to have OSIM on board with us as the title sponsor. We are thrilled to find a partner who shares our vision of inspiring well-being throughout a wider community through running.”
The event also has a new theme this year, Pulse of the Tribe, while Sundown With Love is the race’s charity outreach. Runners will get the chance to join 20 Sundown Tribe Ambassadors to raise funds.
Mok Ying Rong, a self-coached runner and winner of last year’s half marathon women’s open, is a Sundown Tribe Ambassador looking to raise awareness for ACRES Wildlife Warrior, while Claire Jedrek, Singapore’s only female race car driver, has chosen the Children’s Cancer Foundation as her charity.
Mok and Jedrek will join other Sundown Tribe Ambassadors at the event launch at VivoCity on April 11-12.
