BlackBerry today announced it will be the lead supporter for Singapore’s inaugural 10.5 km ‘Green Corridor Run’, taking place on Sunday 27th January 2013 at 7.00am.

Date 27 Jan 2013 (Sunday)
Time 7 am
Venue Tanjong Pagar to Bukit Timah Rail Stations

The ‘Green Corridor Run presented by BlackBerry’ is the first race to be held entirely on the ‘Green Corridor’ taking participants through a green oasis within the heart of the city.

The event, which has already confirmed over 4,300 runners, aims to raise public awareness of this green pathway formerly known as the ‘Rail Corridor’.

The route will allow runners to experience one of Singapore’s least known natural wonders and show their support for keeping the area as natural as possible, benefiting many generations to come.

The Green Corridor Run follows the course of the old rail line, starting at the historic Tanjong Pagar Rail Station.

It runs parallel to the AYE before heading North via Buona Vista, passing near Holland Village and through the lush Clementi Woodlands, before finishing at the old Bukit Timah Rail Station.

Why conserve the Green Corridor?

Once the beginning of a rail network that was planned to extend all the way to Russia, this uninterrupted stretch of ecological and culturally significant land has been re-surfaced to allow the community access to a ‘Green Corridor’ through the city.

The rail corridor was once home to the KTM rail line that connected Singapore to Malaysia and was the beginning of the Oriental Express for those journeying into the heart of Asia.

It has been out of use for many years and this has allowed the surrounding area to flourish with greenery and natural habitat.

Now the line is an uninterrupted stretch of ecologically and culturally significant land.
