9th Anniversary Run • August 15, 2021 (Sunday)
In keeping to Phase 2 Circuit Breaker, we will not be holding our 8th Anniversary Run this 2020.
Given the uncertainty, instead of postponing indefinitely, we look forward to our 9th Anniversary Run in 2021.
Come challenge yourself to Singapore's hilliest 10km & 21km Half Marathon!
7th Anniversary Moments
THE "RR" STORY
HOW IT ALL BEGAN IN 2012
No one really taught any of us how to enjoy a run. We are all typically tossed into running 2.4km with a required (passing) time for our physical fitness test. This resulted us pushing ourselves well beyond our lactate threshold (i.e. greater than 85% of maximum heart rate or 75% of maximum oxygen intake) where our body is unable to breakdown the lactate produced. No joy.
Understanding this and how also to coax the release of endorphins, one can learn the importance of proper technique as cornerstone of the run sports discipline.
From starting with just 1km run a day to completing Marathon Des Sables (250km), World Marathon (7 Marathons, in 7 Continents, in 7 Days), Worlds' Coldest Marathon (North Pole), to racing across Patagonia (250km), etc. came born Ridge Runners.

LIVES @ RIDGE RUNNERS
How Do I Register for the August Anniversary Run?
It's simple; just complete the form above and you are all set to go! Make sure you make clear in the message section whether you are participating in the 10km or half marathon option. Remember to report on time.
How Do I join Ridge Runners Facebook Closed Group?
Ridge Runners run every Sunday morning(s) 6:20am; meeting at Mount Faber Carpark D (Pender Road). Just join us on any Sunday run and you will be welcomed to the RR community and added to the Facebook (closed) Group.
Is Anniversary Run and Sunday weekly runs the same route?
The 10km route is pretty much the same. However, as a result of the large turn-out every year for the Anniversary Run, instead of running from Mount Faber toward Hort Park and back (as we do every Sunday), the run is reversed from Hort Park to Mount Faber and back.
How do we know the run route? Is there a mobile app?
Ridge Runners App is available both on Apple <> and Android <<>. It is first of its kind. Not only does it offer the route map, it also tracks individual user run stats while offering simultaneous real-time group tracking.
Does the Anniversary Run have a Medal for finishers?
Being Singapore's toughest & hilliest 10km + 21km, there is indeed a Ridge Runners medal (specially designed every year). You will have to use the app to track completion of run in order to receive the medal. Makes a great runners' collection.
Is there a Dry-Fit Ridge Runners T-Shirt
Yes. Each year, a special collectors-edition Ridge Runners Dry-Fit is designed and produced. Unfortunately, for the public one-off participants, these are given to regular Sunday runners only. Join us on any (other) Sunday(s), and get your Ridge Runners Dry-Fit FREE.
