What you'll do

One of the better meaningful experiences we missed out on in this busied city is life here just about the break of dawn.
Therefore, meeting at 7 AM, when the air is still crisp, in the heartlands (Singapore's suburbs) at one of the most desirable residential area we'll enjoy a jog around the town center so we can discuss what living in Japan for 3 years was like vs moving back here... and I've come to love it for what it is.

As a travel entrepreneur and guide in this city, may I show off my 'hometown' from another angle that's often not covered in a typical tour that most visitors often opt for.
We will walk, jog, run, and talk about my town, what binds me to it (now), what I find fascinating about Sg, what it offers no where else can, and how much I equally love Japan for (and how much they can learn from us).

3 courses to choose from,
A) Town-centric: Run 4km (2.5 miles); remaining time (1 hour+-) walk & talk in & around my town + breakfast
B) Explore-centric: Run & walk 6km (4 miles) explore nature + neighbourhood; remaining time (30mins+-) for breakfast
C) Run-centric: Run 8km at a leisure pace covering almost the entire town + remaining time (15mins+-) for snack & drink

Let's talk, what works best for you^^
Other things to note
I will be carrying a small backpack to keep our gears, such as mobile phones and wallets. So no need to bring your own bag unless you want to. Simply come with your sneakers and be ready to run!

Where you'll be

Viewing Singapore through the lens of a local born bred Singaporean, the runs will take us through parks, places where locals conduct their morning businesses, wet market and end off at a cooked food market, all the while exploring the most local of a suburb here on this little red dot.
*Although, experiences may be customized. Refer to above main description for some details or message me direct.

Win the morning and you win the day, that's what happened when I meet up with Jan for our morning run. I found the conversation so interesting while running , km's went by without a thought. We finished off with a short tour of the markets and a local breakfast, tasting new and delicious flavours. A highly recommended way to start the day .

Jan is delightful to run with. He’s clearly very knowledgeable and customized the physical exertion level perfectly. Possibly one of the best things I’ve done on my trip to SG. Highly recommend, even if you’re not typically a runner.

Absolutely worth it to wake up at 5:30 in the morning for this unique experience. We had a good run and saw Singapore in a different light. Jan shared his unique perspective of life on this small but impactful island. If you are interested in having a great conversation and some exercise done along the way, this is the best experience for you.
