Safari Zoo Run 2017, Here We Come! + Promo Code

Safari Zoo Run was the first family fun run we ever took part in! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

It is super fun and we looooooove running through the Singapore Zoo as it shows a different side of the zoo that visitors would otherwise never see!! We participated in it in Safari Zoo Run 2013 and 2014, but unfortunately couldn't make it the past 2 years..

Registration for Safari Zoo Run 2017 just opened last week though and hurray!! Looks like we can go!! #happiness

Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities — Ah Meng the Sumatran orangutan, who died of old age in February 2008. The objectives of this run are to encourage family bonding and raise awareness on wildlife conservation.

This year, the Safari Zoo Run is themed "Run for Wildlife" and features 4 animal icons for Safari Zoo Run 2017 - Ah Meng the Orangutan, Chawang the Asian Elephant, Canola the Manatee and Sunny the Hornbill. It focuses on raising awareness for wildlife conservation. Each animal icon team supports an endangered wildlife species that the Singapore Zoo would like to raise awareness for.

Participants can choose an animal icon team to support and raise awareness for them during the run. Find out more about the animal icons teams here.

I like orang utans the most out of the group so I guess I'd be choosing Team Ah Meng?? hahaha..

These are the different categories and fees for Safari Zoo Run 2017. There's an early bird promo until 30 Nov 2016 and just for my blog readers and friends, enjoy 10% off current rates when you register from now until 15 Jan 2017 using my promo code below!

Yes, the code is valid even during the early bird promotion period (*^▽^)/

Promo Code: SZR2017BGPSAKUHARU10

Do note that for the 5.5km Safari Zoo Family Run and 2.5km Safari Zoo Family Dash, individual adult participation is fine {i.e. you don't have to run with family members} but kids cannot run alone... not that I think anybody would want that to do that too haha. Kids under 12 years old require adult supervision by a registered participant and due to safety reasons, one adult can only take care and be paired with one kid in the non-competitive race.

As with past years, the runner's race pack is pretty awesome and makes the registration fee pretty good value-for-money, especially when you use my promo code for the additional discounts haha:
  • Safari Zoo Run 2017 Race Apparel worth $39.90
  • Safari Zoo Run 2017 Finisher’s Medal
  • Free admission to Singapore Zoo worth $33 {on 18 Feb 2017 only}
  • Free admission to River Safari worth $30 {after 12.30pm on 18 Feb 2017 only}
  • 50% discount voucher to Jurong Bird Park that saves you $14.50 {till 31 Mar 2017}
  • 50% discount voucher to Night Safari that saves you $22.50 {till 31 Mar 2017}
  • Exclusive F&B and Retail offers {on 18 Feb 2017 only}

I'm thinking of signing up for the 5.5km Safari Zoo Family Run. For our last 2 family runs this year {My Little Pony Friendship Run & Snoopy Run} we haven't been using Lil Pumpkin's stroller but she still needed us to carry her at some points due to tiredness haha.. I hope to build up her endurance to run the whole way on her own for this upcoming run and will be planning some practice runs and hikes with her (⌒▽⌒)☆ We will probably practise at part of the Zoo route too since we recently got the Friends of the Zoo family membership which gives us unlimited entry into the Singapore Zoo ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

If you're going to join the run, holler out to me!! Hope to see you there! ✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧ Check out the rest of our Bub & Me activities or list of kid-friendly places in Singapore too.

Promo: Quote SZR2017BGPSAKUHARU10 for 10% OFF current rates. Valid until 15 Jan 2017.

You guys have the best runs! Ours are usually only around town. I think I'd like to do one through the zoo! Good luck to Little Pumpkin on making it the whole way on her own :)

Mummy C said...

Wow! My boy will love this run but we'll have to wait another yr for him to meet the min age requirements :'(

Winnie @ Toddly Mummy said...

Sounds like such a fun run! Hmmm... now to talk to the hubby about joining in. Thanks for sharing!

Hello, Mrs Tan said...

These runs look so interesting and fun, but unfortunately, very hefty for big families like us! It would work out to $200 for the 4 of us so..... I think I can only enjoy the pictures for now. Hehehe. Thanks for sharing though!!
