Your guide to the Big Walk
It's going to be big, with 18,000 people pounding the 5km route. Are you geared up for the biggest walking event of the year tomorrow? Here's your complete guide to the historic walk
If you are one in more than 18,000 people who will be pounding the 5km route at the new Paper Big Walk 2014 tomorrow, expect loads of fun.
Long established as the largest walking event in Singapore, the Walk will be flagged off by Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong at 7am.
But the fun begins even before you take your first step.
At 6.50am, The New Paper New Face 2014 finalists will be leading you through some warm-up exercises at the flag-off stage. Kiss92 DJ John Klass will also be there to spice up the event, along with percussion performances to set your pulses racing.
This year, the route takes you along the Benjamin Sheares Bridge, so use this rare opportunity to go selfie-crazy and possibly win $100.
For other chances to win cash, look forward to a lucky draw and a Best Dressed contest.
At the carnival located at the Walk's end point, expect freebies and discounts from sponsors such as Denizen, Nando's, GainCity and Huawei.
Also, get your free copy of The New Paper on Sunday at the TNP distribution booth.
For more gifts, subscribe to TNP for a year and get a free Jabra Solemate Mini, a portable Bluetooth speaker. Subscribe for two years and receive a pair of Jabra Rox wireless headphones.
Have fun, too, at main presenter Singapore Turf Club's booth, where you can snap photos with their mascots and try your hand at a game of horseshoes.
