Singapore, 30 November 2015 – The F1 Village was all aglow with neon colours tonight, as it played host to close to 12,000 ILLUMI RUN participants running and dancing through the evening while doused in ILLUMI Glow Water.
The third edition of the run in the city, this year’s ILLUMI RUN introduced even more surprises and fun for all. After a pre-run DJ segment set by DJ Tang from 6.15pm and getting flagged off by DJ Andrew T at 7.30pm, runners were treated to new glow zones showcasing first-for-ILLUMI paint mechanisms, including the Neon Rainforest, where they were soaked in a one-of-a-kind Glow Water shower, and the Glow Sprinkle zone, with Glow Water-emitting sprinklers.
Each zone also featured a live DJ act, which kept participants dancing all the way through. The party didn’t stop there, of course. At the end of the night, ILLUMI RUN crowd favourites Rave Republic headlined a massive party at the F1 Race Village and pumped up the runners even further, spinning against a backdrop of psychedelic pyrotechnic displays to end the night on an epic high.
“Spinning at ILLUMI RUN is always special to us and tonight was no exception. It was such fun spinning for this enthusiastic crowd, and truly a spectacular, colourful experience for us. We loved seeing all the excited painted faces, and we’re sure everyone had an incredible time,” said Rave Republic, who has also pumped up crowds at ILLUMI RUNs in Brisbane and Guangzhou.
“This has been such a gratifying evening, and we’re extremely pleased with all the positive feedback we’ve received tonight. We strive to make each edition of ILLUMI RUN even better than the previous one, and tonight it really showed. We’re very thankful that participants enjoyed the neon experience, and are already looking forward to the next ILLUMI RUN,” said Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions, conceptualiser and organiser of ILLUMI RUN.
ILLUMI RUN Singapore is Back, The brightest party-run will be held over two nights with 18,000 entries available
Singapore, 28 August 2014 – Singapore’s ultimate party on the run, ILLUMI RUN, is back for the second year, and this year it promises to be bigger and better. Early Bird registration opens online tomorrow (29 August 2014) at 12pm, with 18,000 entries available over two nights on 28th and 29th November.
Making its debut in Asia in December 2013, ILLUMI RUN is a 5km non-competitive run where participants make their way through different themed music zones whilst being splashed with ILLUMI Glow Water for an exhilarating neon experience. Last year’s event saw 10,000 enthusiastic participants light up the night at the F1 Village for an unforgettable evening hosted by club DJs to a background of incredible pyrotechnic displays.
Returning on 28th and 29th November 2014, ILLUMI RUN will be hosting a two-day extravaganza to ignite the celebratory year-end mood. Due to the wonderful response last year, the neon fun run will cater for 18,000 people this year. The participant minimum age limit has also been lowered to 13 years old to include a younger generation of fun-lovers.
“We were very encouraged by the fantastic turnout at last year’s ILLUMI RUN and we seek to give our participants an even more amplified party this year. Many teenagers were keen to join last year and we are happy to announce that we are opening it up to them this time! We trust this will certainly be something for them to look forward to during their holidays,” said Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions and the brain behind ILLUMI RUN.
Prior to this year’s run, each participant will be equipped with improved merchandise such as a re-designed ILLUMI RUN tee, LED wrist-band, glow-in-the-dark shutter shades, and more. Committed to providing an unparalleled en route experience, this year’s musically themed splash zones will see more dousing with the ILLUMI Glow Water, and additions such as dancers to complement the nightlife atmosphere and create a full on clubbing experience en route. The run will conclude at the F1 Race Village with opportunities for participants to capture their luminous memories amongst the not-to-be-missed party that will continue into the night.
Registration begins online tomorrow with early bird prices of S$78 per person ending on 8 September. Normal registration will then kick-in from 9 September, but with the option of a 4 pax group registration at S$320.
