SINGAPORE - Sign up for this year's The Straits Times Run, and you could be sporting a new pair of running shoes at the Sept 23 event.

Those who register by June 3 will stand to win one of 10 pairs of New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v4 shoes worth $169 each.

In its fourth iteration, the Fresh Foam Zante boasts a sleek silhouette and midsole cushioning for a supportive ride.

A draw will be held after June 3 to determine the 10 lucky winners.

All ST Run participants will also enjoy a 25 per cent discount off regular-priced New Balance items when they show their confirmation slip at any New Balance store.

Operations director Ng Hee Nguan, one of the winners in last year's giveaway, was pleasantly surprised by the win.

"It's always good to win something," said the 52-year-old, who will be taking part in 5km category again this year. "The shoes are light and they feel good when I run, the design and colour are also nice."

This year's run at the Singapore Sports Hub comprises three categories - 18.45km, 10km and 5km.

The registration fee for each is $70, $60 and $50, respectively.

Past participants enjoy a Loyal Runner rate and need to pay only $58, $48 and $38, respectively.

The build-up to the sixth instalment of the ST Run will feature a range of fitness and lifestyle activities geared towards getting participants ready.

These activities are in keeping with the theme of having fun while training for the run, which is key to making exercise routines stick.
