New Running Challenge : MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50

Latest Happenings



If you have done your share of running in Singapore, you may well be ready for a change from road running.  We have heard that the MSIG Action Asia 50 Series is coming to Singapore.

This could well be the new running challenge you are looking for!

Singapore’s leading general insurance provider, MSIG, presents a brand new addition to its established ultramarathon series – the MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50; a flat, fast urban trail race through the garden city of Singapore on 25 July 2015.

The new ultramarathon is an expansion of the MSIG Action Asia 50 series, which has been successfully held in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Known for designing tough courses in challenging conditions, the latest addition is set to be one of the garden city’s most demanding races yet. Ideal for both experienced ultra runners and those looking to venture in to trail running, the Singapore course will offer a 10km, 21km and 50km trail on a mostly off-road track.

Michael Maddess, Director of Action Asia Events, added: “Trail running is becoming more and more popular both in Singapore and the region as runners head off-road for beautiful scenery and tougher terrain. The MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50 race will offer road runners a new challenge, while the heat and humidity will test the endurance of even the most accomplished competitors. We are also developing a point system which will be linked to the MSIG Action Asia 50 series. This is a great extension to the Singapore race where loyal participants can earn points and be rewarded for their achievements.”
