SINGAPORE - More items stand to be won for those who sign up for The Straits Times (ST) Run at The Hub before July 19, as exercise machines and hampers were announced as goodies.

The early birds will have the chance to win an Aibi X Power that is worth up to $599 and L'Oreal hampers worth up to $300.

The Aibi X Power which is sponsored by Aibi is an exercise machine which incorporates both arcing and swinging motions so that it gives users a complete abdominal workout in just five minutes a day.

The company calls it the world's first exercise machine that combines two abdominal exercises in one machine, which tones, strengthens and builds the front core abdominal muscles and the external obliques as well.

The hampers, which are sponsored by L'Oreal Singapore, will have cosmetic goods such as facial cleansers, foaming creams, eye moisturisers and more.

In addition to many prizes for early registration, a Land Rover Discovery Sport is up for grabs for all race-goers aged 21 and older who are Singaporeans or permanent residents.

Each eligible runner will get one chance to win in a lucky draw. Non-runners who sign up for a Straits Times subscription will also stand to win.

The ST Run at at The Hub will be held on Sept 27, where there will be three categories, the 5 km ($48), 10 km ($58) and 18.45 km ($68).

The introduction of a new 18.45km category is to mark the 170th anniversary of The Straits Times and the year it was founded, which will give runners a journey through time, via music, images and headlines from the national newspaper over the past years.

This is the third instalment of the event. It was held at the Punggol Waterway for the inaugural edition in 2013 and the National Stadium in 2014, as the first mass run to end under the National Stadium's iconic domed roof. All three editions have been backed by main sponsor, electronic giants Panasonic.
