Singapore Southern Ridges Run

Singapore Southern Ridges Run

During one of my regular training runs, the Singapore Southern Ridges was the venue where I explored on foot. For a change of scenery to spice up my training run programme, I chose to go on a Singapore Southern Ridges run. On this occasion, I commenced and ended my training run at Telok Blangah Hill Park.

From the google map, you can note the red line tracing my footsteps. The line reaches westward to the edge of Kent Ridge Park and touches the outskirts of Mt Faber Park to the east.

The red line is recorded via GPS on my Garmin Forerunner 405CX wristwatch. Data recorded on the watch can be downloaded to PC and uploaded onto a Garmin site for analysis. Details of the run like the running speed, altitude and precise route can be studied later in the comforts of home before a laptop or computer.

Each kilometre traversed is recorded by a Lap marker on the map. Lap 1 indicates the point when 1 km is reached, Lap 2 is the 2 km mark, and so forth.

With this technology, my run data allows me to keep track of my training progress without going through the tedious process of measuring non-linear distances on a map as well as keeping time.

Have you tried walking or running along the entire stretch of the Singapore Southern Ridges?

See more places. Live more life.
