On the Race Day, the runners were greeted with rather unfortunate weather, with the drizzling developing into heavy rain. The 21km run was ultimately cancelled and participants of that event joined the 7am flag off for 10km runners The kids 350m dash proceeded as planned.
Despite the rain, response to the run was positive overall, with many runners expressing their greater appreciation of climate change and the message of 350 Singapore.
We hope all runners had a good race and the activities leading to the race. Hope to see you next year at Run 350 2015!
