Go to the 100PLUS Promenade at night-time and outrun your own shadow.
We all have shadows. They follow us wherever we go, whether we want it or not. But my question is: what if I go really fast? With that, I began a journey which has taken me on frequent midnight runs at the 100PLUS Promenade track at Singapore Sports Hub since 2016. Clocking over 700km to date, I still haven’t found much success. Perhaps you might.
Fully sheltered, open 24 hours a day, and conveniently accessible via the Kallang and Stadium MRT stations, the 888-metre three-lane sports track at 100PLUS Promenade has been my place of choice for night exercises. It surrounds the National Stadium and has evenly spaced-out spotlights that continuously cast oncoming shadows as one runs down the circular path. It’s almost impossible to outrun the shadows in front, beside, or behind you, and to attempt to do so would likely result in an endless race against yourself, both physically and metaphorically. Ready, set, go!
