The SAFRA Punggol Waterway Challenge is making a comeback on 28 April 2018, Saturday. Families looking for an exciting family-bonding activity can participate in the multi-disciplinary race featuring running, cycling and kayaking elements.
Different categories are available for parent-and-child pairs and adult pairs to take part – the Doubles Challenge for adults 15 years and above, and the Families for Life Challenge for parent-and-child pairs where the child has to be seven years old and above.
Along the way, participants will also get to tackle fun obstacle challenges, including activities such as buddy skipping, trampoline photo jumps and more.
Together, these activities make for a memorable day of fun and challenge.

Exciting Outdoor Fun
The inaugural edition of the SAFRA Punggol Waterway Challenge was held in 2016 to celebrate the opening of the new club. Among the 400 participants, more than 120 parent-and-child pairs took on a course around the scenic Punggol Waterway Park and Coney Island Park.
Riding on the success of the first race, this year’s edition of the SAFRA Punggol Waterway Challenge will thus feature new race routes and challenge stations for participants to enjoy and bond.
Rise Up to the Challenge
Parents with children between seven and 10 years old can join in the AceKids Challenge. At around 7 km long, the course will include a cycling route, running course and paddle in a double kayak. Teams will need to comprise one parent and one child racing together.
Parents with slightly older children can participate in the ChampKids Challenge. This category is for children between 11 and 14 years old and their parents. Teams in the ChampKids Challenge will need to complete a total route distance of around 10 km.
Young adults who are 15 years old and above can also participate in the Doubles Challenge.
Kayaks will be provided as part of the SAFRA Punggol Waterway Challenge 2018, but participants will have to bring their own mountain bike or rent one onsite from Bikes at Waterway at SAFRA Punggol.
Cash Prizes To Be Won
All participants will receive a finisher’s medal.
The top three teams in the AceKids and ChampKids categories will receive cash prizes from $100 to $400 each.
For the record, the AceKids and ChampKids champion teams in 2016 both powered home in under 1.5 hours. But no pressure!

The SAFRA Punggol Waterway Challenge 2018 is open to all members of the public and SAFRA members can enjoy discounted rates. Participants need to be generally fit and are encouraged to conduct a fitness self-assessment using the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) prior to the race.
