SINGAPORE - Yolo Run Singapore has announced a partnership with EuroAutomobile - Singapore's only Alfa Romeo authorised distributor - to create the 21km Alfa Romeo Competizione for female and male half-marathoners, where they each stand to drive away with a brand new Alfa Romeo.

Effective now through Sept 30, Singaporeans and permanent residents are eligible to sign up and participate in the 21km Alfa Romeo Competizione to stand a chance to win an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Super worth $91,000 (without certificate of entitlement).

One winner from both the men and women's category will be selected.

Yolo Run Singapore is the first run event in Asia to introduce a car giveaway for a run event, but to drive away with the Giulietta, runners must beat the timings of 1hr 9min and 1hr 25min flat for the men's and women's category respectively.

The national records currently stand at 1:7:08 for the men and 1:23:16 for the women.

If no runner completes the half marathon under the specified timings, there will be no car winners.

In the event where more than one runner from each category finishes under the specified time, the runner with the fastest timing will drive away with the Giulietta.

"We're delighted to be in partnership with Alfa Romeo Singapore for the 21km Alfa Romeo Competizione," says Alex Loh, managing partner of X-Change Republic - the team behind Yolo Run Singapore.

"We are constantly working at bringing new ideas and concepts to the run industry in Singapore and we are truly excited to see two of our participants potentially driving away in awesome cars this year."

The run will flag off on Nov 11 at the Singapore F1 Pit Building alongside the 5km non-competitive run, 10km competitive open and the 21km competitive open.
