The annual Yellow Ribbon Prison Run (YRPR) will be taking place on Sunday, 15 September 2019. Themed “I Believe in YR Second Chances”, this year’s run celebrates another meaningful year of running in support of second chances and the reintegration of ex-offenders.

Along the race route, you will have the opportunity to pass through areas with restricted access, such as Tanah Merah Prison and Lloyd Leas Community Supervision Centre. The route will also take you along Changi Prison Wall—gazetted as a national monument in 2016—before ending at the Changi Prison Complex, which will be exclusively open to the public for the run.

Proceeds raised from YRPR will go to the Yellow Ribbon Fund, which supports rehabilitation and reintegration efforts for inmates and ex-offenders, as well as their loved ones.

Online Registration Closing Date: 18 August 2019
Walk-in registration is available during Race Pack Collection on 31 August and 1 September 2019 at Suntec Singapore, Convention and Exhibition Centre, Concourse Level 3.
