"We are glad to be part of this sports showcase for ST, more so since this year's participants will be the first to complete a run in the new National Stadium."

Besides the plane tickets, other attractive lucky draw prizes also await early-bird registrants.

Cosmetics and beauty brand La Roche-Posay, ST Run's official sunscreen provider, will be giving away 15 skincare hampers worth $300 each. Each will include La Roche-Posay's Sensiwhite and Uvidea Melt-In creams.

Popular footwear brand New Balance, ST Run's official sportswear, will also be giving away 10 pairs of its new FreshFoam 980 running shoes to early-bird registrants of the 21km competitive run.

The shoes, which cost $169 per pair, are designed to give runners extra spring in their steps, with their lightweight construction and plush cushioning.

The lucky draw for all early- bird prizes will be conducted on July 1. Winners will be notified by phone or e-mail.

The ST run is organised as part of the Straits Times Appreciates Readers programme to reach out to the community.
