Goodie galore at Meiji Run 2017
Mmm, Meiji – the Japanese brand we all grew up with and love. From Yan Yan to yogurt and their iconic gummy chocolates, Meiji’s snacks are timeless, and still among our top go-tos when we’re feeling peckish!
Addicted to all things Meiji but feel the calories piling up? Sign up for Meiji Run 2017 – the World’s Most Delicious Run – and get active while being motivated by your favourite treats. From cash vouchers to free spas, here’s what you can look forward to in the 2nd edition of the run:
The World’s Most Delicious Run
Put your endurance to the test and race it out at the world’s most delicious run. The race features both a 10km Competitive Cashback Run and a 5km Fun Run to appease both runners and walkers, and comes with an incredibly sweet finish – The Meiji Food Fair!

If the mere thought of voluntarily running any distance greater than the NAPFA 2.4km jelli-fies your legs, perhaps you can be bribed with a bag full of Meiji goodies – all finishers will receive a Meiji Snack Hamper worth $20 on top of their race medal.
The best part is that early bird tickets for the 10km Competitive Cashback Run are going for only $55 (U.P. $65), while tickets for the 5km Fun Run are going for just $45 (U.P. $55). For added motivation, there will be a reward system where those who manage to finish 10km under 50 minutes will be given cash vouchers to spend at the Meiji Fair!
You’ll stand to win a cash voucher of $10, $50, or $100 if you complete the 10km category in under 50, 40, and 30 minutes respectively!
What’s in your Meiji Goodie Bag
Let’s face it – many of us sign up for runs not just to sweat it out, but also for cool freebies and exclusive merch.
All Meiji Run participants will receive goodie bags with the following items: a race tee/singlet, tote bag, towel, finisher medal, Meiji snack hamper worth $20, and a Meiji bottle (exclusively for 10km runners only).
