Said Adrian Mok, Director of race organiser, HiVelocity Events Pte Ltd: “Thanks to the F1 Night Race, Singapore has become known globally for its magnificent cityscape at night. It is even more spectacular this year with the completion of the beautiful Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Bay Financial Centre.”
“With the Sundown Marathon heading into its sixth edition this year, we wanted runners to experience this amazing urban landscape to motivate them as they run and perhaps get a glimpse of what its like to race on part of the F1 route. It will also be a great treat for all our overseas participants!”
