The Great Eastern Women’s Run returns for the first time to a full, pre-pandemic scale and will feature six categories of race activities, up from the four last year. The two additional categories are the 21.1km half marathon, as well as the 100m Princess Dash for three- to six-year-olds. They supplement the four categories from last year: the by-invite-only 21.1km half marathon for local elite runners, as well as the categories for members of the public of 10km, 5km, and the 2km ‘Mummy and Me’ run for ladies with daughters aged five to 12. This year also sees an increase in competitive categories with more prize money being set aside to nurture local sporting talent. In addition to the 21.1km elite by-invite-only category, cash prizes will also be awarded to the top three finishers of the 21.1km and 10km local closed categories, with more than SG$18,000 of prize money to be given out.
The run has also become a tremendous force for uplifting communities in Singapore. Over the next five months, our Great Eastern employees and financial representatives will fundraise actively for beneficiary organizations Daughters Of Tomorrow and Singapore Cancer Society, with the support of Community Chest. The funds raised will go towards programs supporting underprivileged women in their back-to-work journey and helping cancer survivors integrate into everyday life and regain a strong sense of community and identity.
