ST Run in the Park: Early rush to collect race packs at Orchard
While the shutters were still down in most of Orchard Road, some 200 participants of The Straits Times' Run in the Park created a buzz of activity at Level 5 of Orchard Central as early as 10.30am yesterday.
They were there to collect their race packs for the Aug 25 race, and were in line before collection started officially at 11am.
Mrs Pushpa Winter, a 52-year-old housewife, was first in line, arriving before 10am to collect the race packs for herself and her family.
She said: "I decided to come early because I had to wait quite long the last time I collected a race pack for another race here."
