A four-day trip to Tokyo awaits a lucky Straits Times Run participant who signs up for the Sept 27 event before July 12.

Sponsored by Chan Brothers Travel, the holiday worth $3,000 is one of the exciting giveaways that participants who register for the annual event before Aug 10 stand to win.

Runners can choose from a 5km fun run, a 10km competitive run or a 18.45km celebratory route, designed to commemorate ST's 170th anniversary and mark the year - 1845 - the paper was founded.

Registration fees range from $48 to $68, with each participant receiving runners' entitlements worth close to $400, including a New Balance running vest and Chan Brothers travel discount vouchers worth $170 to commemorate the ST170 celebrations this year. Those taking part in the 18.45km race will also get a limited edition finishers' T-shirt.

Chan Brothers has more perks lined up for those who sign up early.

Those registering before July 26 stand to win a three- night Club Med Cherating Beach stay for two worth $2,000.

For those who sign up before Aug 10, there is a chance to win a seven-night Spice of South-east Asia cruise for two worth $5,000.

Ms Jane Chang, head of marketing communications for the travel agency, which is the official travel partner for the run, said: "There is no better way to celebrate our golden jubilee this year together with the nation and ardent Straits Times readers than against the scenic city landscape and iconic Singapore landmarks along the routes."

Said organising committee chairman Marc Lim, who is also The Straits Times' sports editor: "We've been fortunate enough to work with great sponsors... The run itself will be a treat. But having all these perks makes the event even more exciting."
