Runninghour 2015: Run So Others Can is an inaugural national event that aims to use mainstream sports as a platform to promote integration and nurture an inclusive Singapore. Runninghour 2015 will be the first and only race in Singapore where participants run alongside over 200 visually, intellectually and physically-challenged runners. The Run will be a rallying call for Singaporeans to come together and show their support towards integrating people with special needs.

Runninghour has been supported by Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) as a Healthy Lifestyle Club (HLC).

The inclusive running club was formed on 18th of April 2009 by a group of fitness enthusiasts. They act as buddy runners to special members who are mildly intellectually challenged every Saturday morning. The members are mainly students and ex-students from APSN (Association for People with Special Needs) and CFA (Center for Adults).
