 RH2017 warmup article

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. This year’s run will be held across Bishan Park and Bishan Stadium on 26 August 2018, 5pm.

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

RH2017 Run   ArticleMaking 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 metres of the race together with no less than 10 people (as social support is an important factor in helping mental 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.

Registration Details

Run for Inclusion 2018 introduces a new category this year – Personalised Distance, where PWSN participants can customise their run distance according to their preference and ability.

About Runninghour Co-operative Limited

Runninghour Co-operative Limited was co-founded on 18 April 2009 by Mr John See Toh and Ms Chan Jan Siang with the aim of providing an avenue for mildly-intellectually challenged youths to participate in sports and integrate with mainstream society. In 2012, the club expanded to include visually challenged runners. Recognising that the club has the potential to create positive impact in more lives, Runninghour officially registered as a co-operative in May 2014, to promote the well-being and integration of people with special needs. Besides organising yearly running events, the co-operative holds regular sports activities such as Weekday Fun & Fit fitness sessions, weekly Saturday runs, tandem biking, dragon boating and other activities for Hearing Challenged Runners (HCRs), Intellectually Challenged Runners (ICRs), Visually Challenged Runners (VCRs) and Physically Challenged Runners (PCRs).
