RUN to rewild
The PUB Green Run (formerly known as the Green Corridor Run) is back and we are on a mission to contribute to the rewilding of the Rail Corridor, an initiative under the National Parks Board’s 'OneMillionTrees' movement.
The 2021 edition of the PUB Green Run is a virtual race with a very real purpose. For every person who participates, $10 will be donated to the Nature Society (Singapore)’s role in the rewilding effort, enhancing the natural habitat along the Rail Corridor, improving its ecological connectivity and cooling the area for recreational users.
Register now, encourage your friends to do the same, and together we can make a place that we love, even better!
Tracks, trails and trees
The Green Corridor Run (2013) was the first ever race to be held along the Rail Corridor after the KTM rail line was removed.
The Green Corridor Run sold out every year from 2013-2016 and succeeded in raising awareness for this incredible stretch of land. It’s popularity demonstrated just how passionate Singaporeans are about the Rail Corridor.
The Green Corridor Run made such an impact that Prime Minister Lee referred to it in his 2016 National Day Rally speech and it was mentioned by Minister Tan Chuan Jin in parliament.
The southern section of the Rail Corridor was closed between 2016 – 2021 for the installation of the Murnane Pipeline, re-opening earlier this year.
Join us in the next chapter of this exciting 'growth' story.

The PUB Green Run 2021 has two categories.
The 10KM CLASSIC is the main category. Everyone from competitive runners to walkers are welcome.

The Nature Society (Singapore) is aiming to rewild stretches of the Rail Corridor as part of NParks 'OneMillionTrees' movement.
By involving stakeholders and the local community, the rewilding project will help create a continuous green canopy along the Rail Corridor, acting as a conduit for plants and wildlife and assist in the re-establishment of rare native species.
It will also enable greater carbon sequestration/storage and help to cool down the area for recreational users.
