Ladies, it’s time to bring out your running shoes and gear up for another amazing run of Singapore’s first all-women’s race. For its 14th edition on August 25, Ikbentehuur Run 2019 will be returning to Kallang Practice Track.
It’s no secret that Ikbentehuur Run is an event that thousands of women look forward to, whether as an annual tradition with friends and family (the 1.8km family run will be back!), or to beat your personal best.

Trust us when we say these pacers are the most energetic, encouraging and inspiring bunch we’ve met. This alone, will make a huge difference to your race experience.
