[UPDATE on 8 December] The Marvel Virtual Run will run from 1 January to 15 April 2021 with multiple categories ranging from 5km to 25km. FInisher entitlements include a rotating Avengers logo trophy, t-shirt, and drawstring bag. Registration is open now. [END UPDATE]
In a year of the COVID-19 pandemic, all the runs have gone virtual. Earlier this year saw Southeast Asia’s first-ever Star Wars Virtual Run, and there’s even a first-ever Virtual Gundam Run currently ongoing for Southeast Asia.
It looks like the next virtual run is going to be Singapore’s first-ever Marvel Virtual Run, as teased by Marvel Singapore’s Facebook page earlier today.
As teased, you’ll have to stay tuned to 8 December 2020 to find out more. Seeing as how it is already end of 2020, the run will probably kick off in early to mid-2021 with registrations to expected to open sometime this December onwards.
No other details are shared at this point apart from the partners list: HSBC (Financial Fitness), Kellogg’s (Healthy Lifestyle), FBT (Apparel Partner), Shopee (Online Retail). This probably means you’ll be expecting Kellogg’s cereals, run t-shirts by FBT, and online registrations via Shopee’s website.
Let’s also hope we’ll have an assorted of gorgeous Marvel-themed finisher medals to choose from, which will most likely be 5 designs in all (based on the teaser video above): Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Black Widow and Hulk.
