As part of the 10th Anniversary of Cold Storage Kids Run (CSKR), this year’s edition will take place within the idyllic setting of Palawan Green, Sentosa Island. The brand new venue for the event also sets the perfect tone for spending the weekend with the family while having a blast at Sentosa. For participants, this would be the ultimate way to fully experience the Cold Storage Kids Run 2017.
For your benefit, we’ve shortlisted the top eight reasons!
1. Kick off the school holidays in style
This year’s CSKR 2017 falls on the first Sunday of the June holidays, making it ideal for taking a break from school. This makes it the perfect staycation destination with an “out-of-Singapore” feel away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The most recommended itinerary would be booking a two-night stay on Saturday and Sunday (27 & 28 May 2017). This would provide for a comfortable duration without being too rushed. After check-in on Saturday, take the family to the white sandy beaches to revel in the island life, building sandcastles and having a healthy picnic before admiring the serene sunset towards the close of day. Have an early dinner before heading back to prepare for Sunday morning’s CSKR!
2. Don’t lose sleep
Worried about the hassle to traveling in the wee hours of Sunday morning? Forget about it when you make it a staycation. As participants, staying within Sentosa means you will be able to conveniently make your way to Palawan Green in time for your respective flag off times via the various transport options available. Spend less time worrying about where to park, traveling time and losing sleep. Instead, spend more time and have fun preparing for the run!
3. Rest and Relax
After the CSKR and carnival, head back to the hotel for a buffet breakfast waiting for your famished tummies! Follow this up with a dip in the pool and a warm shower or perhaps even a nap in the comfort of big, fluffy beds before heading out to enjoy the island’s myriad activities. Don’t forget to bring along your race bibs to enjoy exclusive participants’ discounts at various kid-friendly establishments around the island!
4. Buffet Breakfasts
Deal breaker here. Need we say more?
5. The best way to enjoy Sentosa’s offerings
If you don’t already know, participants of Cold Storage Kids Run 2017 enjoy exclusive promotions for attractions and establishments on Sentosa. Some of them include KidZania, MOSH!, Madame Tussauds, 4D Adventureland, Wavehouse and more. There’s a wide range of activities to choose from for every age group! However, trying to make the most out of this at the expense of rushing through the list isn’t the best way to have a good time. With a staycation, the family can take your time, while maximising your CSKR perks. Not to mention the luxury of recharging at your hotel room, where you have full facilities at your disposal!
6. Save money
Instead of splurging on a Euro escapade or exotic faraway holiday, especially with younger kids in tow, a nearby staycation may be a more sensible option. And since the weekend coincides with CSKR 2017, why not make it a complete holiday experience? Further maximise savings by using your CSKR participants’ perks. And if you are in fact planning for a bigger family holiday at the end of the year, this would be a much-appreciated mid-year retreat without breaking the bank.
7. Family Bonding time
Dr Suess once said, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory,” and we cannot agree more. Take a breather from the demands of daily life and make this a family weekend to be cherished. The Cold Storage Kids Run 2017 weekend is the perfect platform for parent-child bonding in a fun and playful setting. Not to mention the endless benefits the kids will absorb through active learning.
8. Awesome discounts
Sentosa offers a wide range of hotels that cater to various family needs. With a wide range of hotel selections in and around the island, you’ll be spoilt for choice with options starting from just $230!
