Sports: Huat to Do at Singapore Sports Hub this Chinese New Year
Get a running start to the Chinese New Year with Singapore Sports Hub. Kick-off the year with a prosperous 888-metre run with family and friends, followed by some watery fun for a splash of good luck. Then, dive into delicious festive fare at the mall and at night fall, grab a good spot to watch the National Stadium dome come alive as you bask in its golden glow.
Start a new Chinese New Year tradition with family and friends to welcome good health and wealth every year. Go on a Huat Run around the 100PLUS Promenade and for that extra huat factor, run on the 888-metre red ‘prosperity’ lane that circles the Promenade.
The first 88 participants to complete the huat run between 6 and 26 February will each receive a festive F&N goodie bag. All you have to do is take a picture with the prosperity pineapple placed along the route, post it on your Instagram account with the hashtags #AllLaiRun and #MySgSportsHub and show it to our customer care officers at the Visitors Centre to redeem your gift. The top three posts with the most “likes” stand to win red packets, with the biggest “ang pow” worth $288.
Water is a symbol of wealth in Chinese culture, so grab your friends and family and take a dip in our pool of fortune at the OCBC Aquatic Centre. Rain or shine, our public indoor swimming pool is open to you. You can even pick up a swim pass to share with your loved ones.
If the kiddies can’t swim just yet, get them in on the action at the Kids Water Playground. The little ones can enjoy themselves in the Kids Pool while the older kids ride the spiralling slides at the Water Play Area.
Looking for something more exhilarating? Check out Stingray and soak in the rush of wave riding. Climb aboard our half-pipe surfing facility and have a go at bodyboarding or skimboarding. Whether you are a surfing enthusiast or new to the sport, you will love this thrilling experience. Pre-booking is required for both activities, so make sure to lock in your slots early.
Get into the spirit of the season with Singapore Sports Hub as it lights up the night sky in festive colours. Watch the National Stadium transform into a bright golden dome, with auspicious sparkling red and yellow lights as a shining symbol of good fortune! The light show, specially curated to welcome the Chinese New Year, will run for a limited time, from 7pm-11pm, between 7th and 19th February.
