Singapore, 13 January 2014 – Local running enthusiasts who have signed up to kick start the Year of the Horse at the inaugural MediaCorp Hong Bao Run 2014 (9 February 2014) could just find themselves running alongside the likes of Felicia Chin and Joshua Tan, after the stars of the upcoming telemovie “Hong Bao and Kisses” were announced as the latest celebrities to have signed up for the first running event organised after the Chinese New Year.
Chin and Tan will be ushering in the New Year by taking part in the race to promote their telemovie, which will be airing exclusively on MediaCorp’s Toggle on 31 January.
28-year-old Chin announced recently that she has put a halt to her studies and will be making a come back as a full-time artiste after a three-year-hiatus. Tan, the leading man of Jack Neo’s local hit movie, Ah Boys to Men, will be acting opposite Chin as a gym instructor who gets caught in a messy love triangle between Chin’s character and her mum, played by Amy Cheng.
Besides the two popular stars, participants can also expect to run alongside some of their favourite Mediacorp radio personalities like Class 95FM’s Margaret Mary Lim (Maggie) and Mike Kasem. Y.E.S. 93.3FM DJs – Jiafa (家发) and Chan Ning (陈宁) will also be joining in the fun, while Peifen (佩芬) will be co-hosting the event with Class95’s Glenn Ong. More artistes are expected to confirm their participation soon for the most star-studded running event in town.
The Guest-of-honour for the event will be Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Mr Teo Ser Luck, who will flag off the race and run the full 8km. The race will feature Individual Male and Female Categories and has attracted keen interest from top local runners like Southeast Asia Games marathon gold medalist Mok Ying Ren.
The top male and female finishers will each walk off with S$2,888 in cash while the runners-up and third-place finishers bring home S$1,888 and S$888 respectively, making it Singapore’s biggest prize money fun run.
On top of that, all runners will stand an equal chance of winning the grand prize of a mega S$88,888 hong bao in the lucky draw at the end of the race. There will also be 10 consolation hong bao prizes of S$888 each. All registered participants will also receive goodie bags worth more than S$80 each, as well as a free health check.
“We hope that fans will come and show their support for their favourite artistes at the race. Furthermore, they stand a chance to win S$88,888 just by signing up for the Mediacorp Hong Bao Run!” said Mr Steven Choo, Chairperson of the Organising Committee for the inaugural MediaCorp Hong Bao Run.
Participants are also encouraged to dress up in the spirit of Chinese New Year and take part in the fancy dress contest. Three lucky winners get to walk away with hong baos worth S$888 in cash if they impress the DJ judges from 987FM with their costumes.
In order to encourage more families to sign up as a unit, organisers have also rolled out a “Group of 4” registration package at a special price of just S$188, which represent savings of more than 30 percent.
