Run & Raisin is one of the lower profile running events in Singapore. Organised by TOUCH Young Arrows, a charity organisation, the proceeds from the race go to help out children in need.
The race took place last Saturday on the 6th July 2013 at Gardens by the Bay. This is turning out to be a very popular location for races; the Nike She Runs race was held there as well. But unlike the Nike race, which was packed to the brim, Run & Raisin’ was not crowded at all. It was a pleasant surprise. I expected to be squashed elbow to elbow on my run but it was not so. I could even see the starting line! As a result, the running was relaxing and way more fun than the more popular races, such as those organised by the big banks and brand names.
