15 May (Sun): Pesta Ubin Run

Join this free 5km scenic run which brings you through rustic landmarks in Pulau Ubin. Run, Learn, Explore!

Starting off from Ubin Town at the Assembly Area, the route leads the runners through the Sensory Trail (first pit-stop) where we will learn more about the interesting facts about the Sensory Trail.

Going through kampungs in Ubin, our second pit-stop is at the famous "Why You So Like That" drink stall. If we are lucky, we may get a chance to learn more about the herbals planted by the Resident Uncle.

Before we head back to Ubin Town, we would run pass the Bukit Puaka (the tallest point in Pulau Ubin).

Along the way, we will have a look at the Butterfly Hill designed specially to attract butterflies, before we end our run at the Assembly Area.

The Pesta Ubin Run would not be possible without the more than 55 volunteers who organised and helped behind-the-scenes. Here's a look at some of them...
