Geek Giveaway: Win Tickets to the Inaugural Pokémon Run Singapore

[UPDATE 12 January 2017: Winner Announcement! Congratulations to Chan Poh Ching and Thye Tzy Huoy ! Please check your email for prize redemption details.]

Forget about Pokémon Go, Sun or Moon this coming January 14, and lace up your shoes to be the very best like no one ever was in Pokémon Run Singapore 2017! Held at the Promontory @ Marina Bay, take a leisurely stroll or race to the end as your favourite Pokémon cheer you on from the sidelines against the backdrop of Singapore’s iconic skyline. Yes, you can stop and take photo prints with the adorable pocket monsters along the 5-km route too!

Junior trainers aged 4 – 12 can look forward to running alongside a Pokémon celebrity, Junichi Masuda, a founding member of Game Freak (creators of Pokémon) and game director/composer for the Pokémon games during Kids Wave! Upon finishing, junior trainers can collect a mystery gift and join an autograph session with Masuda-san himself. As for adult fans, there will be a separate autograph session, only 50 lucky participants will be selected and announced on the Pokémon Run Facebook page.
