They completed the whopping 200km distance in just 28 hours.

This would mean that the pair averaged an impressive speed of 7.14km/h throughout their long endurance run.

Pulled through challenging run with support of community

But the journey was not without its challenges.

According to the Facebook post, completing such a distance on flat concrete ground in Singapore’s extremely humid weather was “next level”.

There were many moments throughout the run where the runners thought they wouldn’t be able to pull through.

Run went beyond the Round Island Route

For the most part of their run, the 2 men appear to have taken the Round Island Route.

According to National Parks Board (NParks), the Round Island Route is a continuous 150km park connector that goes around Singapore.

And the runners literally went the extra mile, venturing into the West region of Singapore that is not currently included in the Round Island Route, bringing their running distance to a total of 200km.

An incredible feat

What an incredible feat it is to be able to say that you’ve ran the entire perimeter of Singapore at one go, amidst notoriously difficult warm weather.

Kudos to the ultra runners for their perseverance throughout the run. It’s certainly an inspirational story for many of us.
