About Safari Zoo Run

Jointly organised by Wildlife Reserves Singapore and Pink Apple Pte Ltd, the Safari Zoo Run aims to give runners from all walks of life a unique and memorable experience!

Part of the proceeds from the event will also go towards the care of endangered animals at Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. In 2013, a total amount of $100,000 was raised for the upkeep of endangered animals in the WRS. ($80,000 in 2012)

Here again for the sixth year, the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari will be opening their doors for all avid runners to enjoy the sights of our wildlife exhibits while keeping up with a healthy lifestyle through the run in the parks. Safari Zoo Run 2014 will start in the morning again.

Safari Zoo Run was conceptualised to commemorate the death anniversary of orang utan Ah Meng, one of Singapore’s most adored animal personalities. So put on your running shoes and join us for a fabulous day!
