12.8KM Water Story

THE SYMBOLIC OF THE 12.8KM RUN DISTANCE

Water has always been a concern for Singapore. The country’s journey to become self-sufficient has been marked by various successes, one of them being Marina Reservoir.

One of the missions of the CSC Run by the Bay, considering its location, is to emphasize the importance of Marina Reservoir in the Singapore water story.

This is the exact distance around the whole Marina Reservoir.

The CSC Run by the Bay was one of the first runs organised around the Bay, hence its name.

The event has become a celebration of Marina Reservoir and, by extension, of Singapore’s water-related achievements.

Marina Reservoir plays a crucial role. It is the largest of the 17 reservoirs in Singapore, with a catchment area of 10,000ha, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, and it is also the only reservoir located in the centre of the city.

Here is a 4-minute outline:
