Come August 28, get ready for Adidas’ own running championship!
Held in five countries across the region and with different race routes such as city roads, along the beach or the expressway, the Adidas King of the Road (KOTR) race will culminate in a thrilling ultimate championship race held in a different country every year.
Navigating through some of the most scenic landmarks in Singapore, the race begins on the Esplanade Bridge and ends at The Padang, taking runners through Marina Bay Sands, the Esplanade and the Singapore Flyer, among others.
This year, the event theme is “colors”, fully represented through a variety of different colored Adidas event racing tops provided within the race pack. The race is open to participants across two categories – the “Closed” category (Men/ Women), open to local runners (Singaporeans and Permanent Residents) as well as the “Open” category (Men/ Women) for international participants.
Interested participants can register at adidaskinoftheroad.com and registration will remain open until July 2011 or until all slots have been filled. Each country is a qualifying leg towards the finals, and the winner and runner-up of each country’s 16.8km (Closed) category will win an expenses paid trip to the Philippines to compete with the other countries’ winners on October 23!
