Preview: World’s First Sesame Street Run Comes to Singapore!
If there’s one thing Singapore is known for, it’s sunny days. So come sweep the clouds away with Sesame Street as they land in Singapore to celebrate their 50th anniversary with the first ever Sesame Street Run on its Southeast Asia tour!
Following a successful run in the Philippines earlier this year, the Sesame Street run takes place on 17th November at Our Tampines Hub (OTH), before heading to Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia in 2020. A five kilometre run, the fun run’s biggest draw is the chance for runners to relive their childhood memories by meeting their beloved Sesame Street characters up close without having to make a trip to the US.
On the event day itself, the run promises a fun-packed day with loads of activities for the whole family, whether first timers or experienced runners. Get ready to witness the star-studded line up of your favourite Sesame Street characters such as Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover and more! For families with younger children and seniors in tow, the run will also have separate three and one kilometre leisure walks so everyone can cross the finishing line together.
Plus, witness a giant birthday cake blowout and be flagged-off with a countdown by Sesame Street’s very own Count Von Count at the 50th year run. Additionally, guests signing up will also get to experience fun activities and themed Sesame Street carnival games and quizzes as well as photo opportunities with their favourite Sesame Street characters. Depending on your category, runners will also receive a myriad of colourful items that will have you smiling with glee, such as a dri-fit Sesame Street t-shirt, a Sunny Day’s medal, a smart scarf, a pair of socks, a sweatband and more.
Says Mr. Aaron Goh, Founder of run organisers Heroes Pvt Ltd: “We are excited to be partnering with the Sesame Workshop to launch the world’s first Sesame Street Run Tour in Southeast Asia for its 50th year anniversary. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is not to be missed. Like the iconic television show which has educated and entertained children for over three generations, the run celebrates 50 years of bringing people and the community together through interaction with our favourite Sesame Street characters.”
Adds Mr Suhaimi Rafdi, Senior Director of Our Tampines Hub: “Our Tampines Hub (OTH) continues to build, bridge and enrich our community.
