Can a Singapore relay team beat an MRT?
Following the trend of “Race The Tube” challenges that first sprouted out from London, where runners will run from the underground Tube from one station to the other to get on the same train, and spread across the world in Stockholm, Naples, and even Hong Kong, Singapore has presented its answer to it.
However, it’s not a one man show this time, but a relay team of 4, passing off a bright blue baton while wearing Go Pro cameras on their foreheads to film the whole thing. The description for the video simply says “MRT in Singapore is so fast, we had to do a relay… Relay the MRT!” The team ran from Little India station to Farrer Park station.
The video was posted by the Asics City Relay, which according to their official website, says “SINGAPORE’S NEWEST RUNNING EVENT IS COMING SOON.” It already has a YouTube page and a Twitter account, and the video seems to be the only marketing effort for this event so far. Hopefully that means that they will be making more of these types of videos. Which train stations would you recommend?
