About RUN 350 is Southeast Asia’s premier eco-run in support of the global 350 movement. This movement aims to raise awareness to the need to lower atmospheric CO2 levels to 350 parts per million, which scientists believe is the level required for Earth’s sustainability.
RUN350 2015 edition is expecting 12,000 runners, they will be seen running through the Kallang waterfront and past iconic landmarks such as the Sports Hub. The half-marathoners taking part in the 21.1km category will get to race along Nicoll Highway and head on to Gardens by the Bay before finishing off at the F1 Pit Building.
Our Parenting World team was at the launch at Raffles Green. The registration for the run was well-received and it comes with a meaningful cause as the organisers will distribute seedlings to the first 100 registrants to bring home and grow. Each participant will bring back a seedling pack containing seeds bombs and a 100 PLUS 500ml bottle.
At the launch, we were introduced to the creative vertical gardening of using plastic bottles. It is an innovative way of recycling and reducing waste to the environment.

You can also use your plastic bottles to grow your plants as a pot.
The organisers hope to have these runners bring home and nurture the seedlings and sustain it till race day. Runners are also encouraged to document and share the growth of their plants with fellow runners by uploading pictures onto their Instagram and hashtag #RUN350sg.
Come race day on 5 April, the organisers will install vertical gardening walls at the race village where runners will get to showcase their plants.
