Great Eastern Women’s Run

Great Eastern Women’s Run

Guest post by Melva as I would not be around to personally participate in this run.

There is an increasing trend of having more organised races around our sunny island. The Great Eastern Women’s Run is an annual iconic run for women only. I have participated in many races before over the last 8 years and this will be the first time I will be running in a Womens-only race!
I do foresee that it would be so much of a breeze to have a race entirely for ladies only!

The annual Great Eastern Women’s Run is happening this 2014 on 9th November, Sunday.
There is still 3 more days before the Early Bird Registration Promotion ends. The best deal is to grab another girlfriend to sign up together and enjoy special rates off the usual early bird rates!

Great Eastern is a home grown insurance company and has been established for over a century. The company’s slogan: “LIVE GREAT!“ – encourages everyone to maintain a healthy lifestyle and being healthy, you will be able to live it great! Great Eastern also organises monthly runs for employees to foster stronger workplace ties and promote the Live Great! spirit.

If you are a policy holder, you are given the best preferential rates for the registration.
Every participant will enjoy a COMPLIMENTARY Insurance Cover during the run that covers you for accidental death, permanent disablement and medical expense.
