All participants who complete this year's Straits Times Run on July 16 can look forward to receiving New Balance finishers' T-shirts.

These come in two designs, one for those competing in the 18.45km race and another for those in the 5km and 10km categories.

This year marks the fifth edition of the ST Run, and it is the first time different designs of the finishers' tees will be offered.

There was no finisher tee for participants of the inaugural ST Run in 2013, and only one design was available during the past three editions.

Each T-shirt is worth $49 and features the NB Dry technology, which wicks moisture away quickly so that its wearers are kept dry.

The race vest, also by New Balance, features the same technology.

Ten runners who sign up for the Straits Times Run before May 29 will stand a chance to win a one-month True Fitness Singapore membership worth $210.

This year, the ST Run has partnered with the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), and the first 3,000 participants who register for both runs will receive an exclusive dry bag.

Those who sign up for any category of the ST Run and either the SCSM's half or full marathon races will receive the 10 litre waterproof bag if they register for the Dec 2-3 SCSM by Sept 15.

National marathoner and 2013 SEA Games gold medallist Mok Ying Ren is helming an eight- month running programme, which is featured every Saturday in The Straits Times.

Registration is open for the ST Run, which will feature three categories: the 5km family run, the 10km and the 18.45km.

This year, all routes will end at the Padang for the first time.

The first edition in 2013 took place at the Punggol Waterway, and the next two were at the Singapore Sports Hub, before the race was moved to the Formula One Pit Building last year.
