This year, Runninghour has teamed up with Singapore Turf Club (STC), the oldest existing and only horse racing club in Singapore, as the official Event Partner for its events, including the signature Run For Inclusion 2021.

Runninghour is a sports-co-operative that promotes integration of Persons with Special Needs (PWSN) and empower them to participate in mainstream activities. The Run For Inclusion 2021 aims to reach out to 2,000 participants, including 1,000 special needs participants and their caregivers.

RFI 2021 will feature two race formats where participants can choose from three categories (i.e., cycle, run or walk) either on-site or virtually at their own pace and comfort.
