Sweep the clouds away with sunny days ahead with the world’s first Sesame Street Run Tour making its stop in Singapore as part of its Southeast Asia tour following a successful run in the Philippines earlier this month. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Sesame Street Run will make its debut on our sunny island on 17 November 2019 at Our Tampines Hub (OTH). Tickets go on sale from now till 30 September 2019 via sesamestreetrun.com.
Fans of the popular American children’s television show can relive their childhood memories by meeting their beloved Sesame Street characters up close without having to make a trip to the US.
In contrast to other running events, the Sesame Street Run promises a fun-packed day with loads of activities for the whole family! The five kilometre family run caters to all ages, from first timers to experienced runners. Witness the star studded line up of your favourite Sesame Street characters such as Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover and many more!
For families with younger children and grandparents in tow, the run will also have separate three and one kilometre leisure walks so everyone can cross the finishing line together!
“Our Tampines Hub (OTH) continues to build, bridge and enrich our community. As Singapore’s largest integrated community and lifestyle hub, we aim to deliver an all-inclusive experience for all visitors. In line with our efforts to foster community bonding through sports, the Sesame Street Run @OTH is an excellent opportunity to bring families and friends together so that they can bond through their shared love and interest in running. There is always something for everyone at the hub.” said Mr Suhaimi Rafdi, Senior Director of Our Tampines Hub.
The 50th year run will have all participants witness a giant birthday cake blowout and be flagged-off with a countdown by Sesame Street’s very own Count Von Count. Additionally, guests signing up will also get to experience fun activities and themed Sesame Street carnival games and quizzes as well as photo opportunities with their favourite Sesame Street characters.
The five-kilometer Sesame Street run offers attractive merchandise with different ticket categories that will have you spoilt for choice. With categories ranging from $42 to $126, each ticket category will come with a myriad of colourful items that will have you squealing with delight such as a dri-fit Sesame Street t-shirt, a Sunny Day’s medal, a smart scarf, a pair of socks, a sweatband and more. An e-certificate will also be sent upon completion of the run. For more details, visit www.sesamestreetrun.com.
