Back for its second edition, The Music Run™ by AIA is an immersive 5k fun run that puts music at the heart of the experience. Over 120 concert quality speakers pumping out over 150,000 watts of music will line the running course, known as ‘The Sound Track’, across five interactive and music themed zones – Rock, Pop, Old School, Hip Hop and Dance.
“While most fun runs originate from the US, The Music Run™ started in Asia and expanded throughout the region before crossing over to Europe and the US in the last two years. The reason for its massive success is its winning formula that combines music with the ever-growing fitness craze into the ultimate running and music festival that also puts control of the run’s soundtrack in the hands of our Music Runners™,” said Ben Pember, Executive Director of Exceed Sports & Entertainment. (check out the Launch video below)
Highly immersive and interactive, the music experience starts from the moment participants sign up for the run. Participants get to decide the music that they want to listen to during the run by voting online for their favourite hits using a bespoke music selection app created with digital music partner, Spotify®. The songs with the most votes make the official soundtrack of the run.

You Fly, We Fly, Everyone FLy at iFLy Sentosa Singapore, I manage to witness one of the most exciting thing in indoor skydiving a few days back and that was to watch not 1 but a couple of Guinness World Record being broken right before my eyes. It was really amazing to witness such a spectacular event and no wonder people gawk in awe when GWR certificate is being handed out ( I for sure am one of them) Why gawk you ask ?
Cause those certs are HUGE and I want one of them in my living room, but I am not sure what crazy stuff I can do to get one, maybe for sleeping the longest period of time ? I think I can easily break that and or maybe not showering ? that should be easy.. heck even PSY has it (for the most liked clip on Youtube)
Well, anyway back to the iFly Guinness World Records attempt at breaking the most somersault (backflip) by 11 year old Kyra Poh and 12 year old Choo Yi Xuan, when I arrived I saw them practicing for one of the attempt and they has this bubbly, ever smiling attitude when I was recording. They were also interviewed before their attempt and there you can see Yi Xuan in the blue suit and Kyra in yellow
I manage to capture both girls at their attempt breaking event, did they manage to break the World Record ? watch the video to find out.
here is the clip of Kyra attempting to break the record which stands at 40, watch it to see if she can break the most somersault in 60seconds (bite nails)
And this is Yi Xuan at her attempt and boy was she fast
Ok those girls broke it like they own it. Kyra did a total of 67 somersaults and man that sure is a dizzy one, just looking at them go makes me go all light headed. so CONGRAT to the girls and also iFly for hosting this event.
Some Fun Fact of the Singapore iFly
- At a height of 56.5ft and width of 16.5ft, iFly Singapore is one of the world’s largest indoor skydiving simulators.
- iFly Singapore is the only wind tunnel that offers flyers an unparalleled view of the South China Sea and a nightly firework display from the nearby Songs of the Sea.

- iFly Singapore is safe, affordable and feels like the real deal.
- More than SGD25 million has been invested to make iFly Singapore a truly first-of-its-kind and state-of-the-art body flight facility and attraction
Did you know?
- Anyone from first timers to professional flyers, ranging from seven to 106 years old can fly!
- The stainless steel elastic net at the base of the wind tunnel is strong enough to hold two adult elephants (or 200 people of 100kgs each)!
- The usual body flight wind speed ranges from 160 to 190 kilometres per hour, but the four fans weighing in at a whopping seven tonnes each can produce airspeeds of up to 300 kilometres per hour, faster than the average speed of an F1 car.

- It is not only fun and accelerating, but a full body workout. Forget the hours in the gym and boring old crunches for fabulously toned abs
