Although Singapore might be known for its glitzy skyline and cosmopolitan vibes, it has its fair share of greenery and nature too! If you like being out in nature, running is a great way to relieve stress, get fit, and even explore Singapore.

We’ve got our expert expat runners to give us all the tips on the best jogging routes in the city so you can start your day or weekend – on the right track.

 

The Southern Ridges

Connecting three parks: Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park, and covering a distance approximately 10 km, The Southern Ridges is a great trail if you’re more of an experienced runner. There are quite a few uphill segments, so it can be challenging but it’s worth it! Don’t miss jogging along the Forest Walk where you get to run through the treetops, and make sure you bring a camera if you’re running the Marang Trail during sunrise.

Bukit Batok Nature Park was built on what was once an old quarry, and is home to some gorgeous landscapes and sky-high look out points for an awe-inspiring view. Take a stroll along the footpaths, or branch out and run on the park’s uneven terrain. The trail is only about 5 km, so it’s better suited for a short run. While you’re there, you can also check out the World War II memorial, and climb the look-out points for a bit of a challenge.

Singapore Sports Hub

Singapore’s largest semi-indoor space that’s open to the public and free to use, houses an 888-meter sports track, 100Plus Promenade, that’s open 24 hours a day – so you don’t have any excuse for missing your run! While it is a loop, you’ll still get a chance to take in Singapore’s skyline, and take advantage of the facilities like the food court, and free lockers. However, the Sports Hub is a popular concert destination, so make sure you check the calendar to avoid showing up during a concert as you’ll get bumped and jostled around by the crowd.

While Sembawang Park might be a bit of a trip if you’re not living in the north, it’s definitely a must-visit location for most runners. Enjoy the seaside views overlooking Johor, and relax into your stride with the tranquility of it all. Pay a visit to the Beaulieu House, the Sembawang Jetty, and check out what’s left of the 1920’s Seletar Pier. Grab a bite at one of the many eateries located along the park connector, if you get a bit peckish.

Located along Sentul Crescent, Punggol Waterway Park is segmented into four different themes: Nature Cove, Recreation Zone, Heritage Zone and Green Gallery. Joggers can run along the tracks on both sides of the promenade, and enjoy the rising sun at Sunrise Point. You can also take advantage of their shower facilities and the restaurants at the end of the waterway. Since it is an open space, we wouldn’t recommend a late morning or afternoon run, as it gets quite hot. You’d also miss out on the fiberoptic features at night.

The Green Corridor offers up a 10.5 km stretch that’s full of greenery and woodlands, and, most importantly, is traffic free. Home to the famous Green Corridor Run, this route is made up of gravel, grass, and pavement on a fairly flat surface. Since the surface is quite uneven, we wouldn’t recommend night jogs here.

The 15 km, mostly pavement track is perfect if you’re training for a half or full marathon, as it features in a few marathon events and offers up a stunning view of the coastline.

A hilltop landmark that has witnessed many of Singapore’s historical milestones, Fort Canning Park has become a popular running spot if you want to challenge yourself, and indulge in a bit of strengthening – thanks to the many stairs and slopes on the trail.

Located smack dab in central Singapore, Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park is one of the city’s largest urban parks with its naturalized river, and grassy knolls. Runners can choose to run the Pond Gardens Track or the River Plain track at 3 km and 3.3 km respectively.
