To promote the well-being and integration of Persons with Special Needs (PWSN), Run For Inclusion 2018, is back for its fourth edition under a new banner. Following the success of Runninghour 2017: Run So Others Can, the event returns this year with the aim of spreading awareness and understanding towards a wider group of PWSN, through the avenue of physical fitness.

Run For Inclusion 2018 is Singapore’s only mass running event where participants run alongside hearing, intellectually, physically and visually-challenged runners. Held annually by Runninghour Co-Operative Limited since 2015, the event seeks to provide a platform for PWSN to be included in a mainstream event, and to promote awareness towards PWSN.

Running in their shoes:
Making its debut this year is the Empathy Run segment, where participants will undergo hearing, physical, sensory and visual challenges to experience the difficulties faced by PWSN. Participants can take part in the Hearing Impairment Challenge, where they run with earplugs on; Cerebral Palsy Challenge, where participants traverse a distance with uneven terrain; Autism Challenge, where participants go through a sensory tunnel experience created just for the event, and the Mental Health Challenge, where they advocate support for people with mental health issues by finishing the last 400 meters of the race together with no less than 10 people (as social support is an important factor in helping metal illness patients cope and recover).

Not to be missed is Runninghour’s signature ‘Blindfold’ run, where participants run in pairs, with one of them guiding the other along, as he or she runs blindfolded.

All categories are free-of-charge to all persons with special needs and caregiver (Max 1 per PWSN).
