Gudetama virtual walk October 2021


There’s something innately relatable about Gudetama, the lazy egg icon from Japan. It calls out to the tired souls in us – whether we’re exhausted after long days at work, or overall done with the Covid-19 pandemic. 

For those who’ve been feeling idle over the past year, you now have something to look forward to: the Gudetama Eggs-ercise Journey, organised by 42Race. It’s happening from 1st – 31st October 2021, with early bird registration ending at midnight today (15th July 2021). Get your hands on exclusive merch just by taking a leisurely stroll: 


Take part in a “marathon” where timing doesn’t matter


Marathons are usually about endurance and speed – a feat for the fit. But with the Gudetama Eggs-ercise Journey, everyone can take part and win.

All you have to do is walk to unlock “egg” checkpoints as you go along:

  • Stage 1: 3KM
  • Stage 2: 10KM
  • Stage 3: 20KM
  • Stage 4: 50KM

You’ll unlock virtual badges along the way. But even if you don’t manage to hit the minimum of 3KM, you’ll still get your finisher level – so everyone’s a winner. 

Here’s how to the virtual walk works: 

  1. Register for the Gudetama Eggs-ercise Journey: The entry fee is $39.90 for regular entries, and $29.90 for early bird entries on 15th July 2021.
  2. Collect your race pack: Collect it at Palawan Kidz City, Sentosa on 2nd, 3rd, 9th, or 10th October 2021, or have it delivered at $6/participant.
  3. Walk: Clock in your walk from 1st – 31st October 2021. You can walk or run anywhere at any time of the day.
  4. Get your medal: Your medal will be delivered to you within two to four weeks after the event ends.
