Singapore, 3 October 2011 – Make a date with the Bird Park’s colourful feather friends and flora at the annual Feather Run on 13 November 2011. Back for its third installation, the run has been extended and is open to adults for the first time. Each participant will receive a customised running bib, an exciting goody-bag worth $70 and a medal upon completing the run in the world’s largest bird park.

There is something for everyone at this year’s Feather Run. From the young to the elderly, everyone can take part in the 1.5 km Fun Run/Walk and contend in friendly competition, or take a leisurely walk and feast their senses with the myriad colours of Jurong Bird Park’s avian friends as well as the greenery in the park. Avid runners, whether adults or children aged 6 to 12, can choose to take up the 1.5km, 3.5km and 7km challenge as they run along the scenic routes of the hillside haven.

Children can dash off after the run to discover Birdz of Play, a new recreational and fun play area for kids at the bird park. Comprising of a wet and dry area for toddlers and older kids alike, the new attraction features a huge clambering splash and slide area. Destined to be a hit with many; especially the bucket which tips after a few minutes, makes the area perfect for cooling off after the run.

Enjoy Family and Early Bird discounts when you sign up for the run. Families with at least four participants can purchase the Family Package which offers savings of up to 35%.

Participants are invited to rediscover the bird park after the run and learn more about avian life as well as the education and conservation programmes undertaken by the park locally and abroad. The forest setting of the park is the ideal place for everyone to observe birds in their natural behaviour and watch highly interactive and entertaining bird shows.
