The ‘Green Corridor Run’ presented by BlackBerry is the first race to be held entirely on the ‘Rail Corridor’, with the course spanning the section from the Tanjong Pagar Rail Station to the old Bukit Timah Rail Station. The event aims to raise public awareness of this green pathway officially known as the ‘Rail Corridor’. The route allowed runners to experience one of Singapore’s least known natural wonders and show their support for keeping the area as natural as possible, benefiting generations to come.
