National Runway Cycling & Skating 2012

Currently into its 16th year, the National Runway Cycling & Skating is an annual event where the usually out-of-bounds Paya Lebar Air Base is cleared and closed for one day to provide NSmen, their families and members of the public with the unique experience and thrill of cycling and skating on the runway. 

Jointly organised by SAFRA National Service Association (SAFRA) and the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), the National Runway Cycling & Skating 2012 event aims to promote a healthy and active lifestyle, as well as encouraging families to get together for a day of fun and family bonding. 

2012 is going to be a year of celebrations for both SAFRA and the RSAF/SAF. With SAFRA celebrating its 40th anniversary, and the RSAF/SAF celebrating 45 years of National Service,  organisers of the NRWCS are planning several activities to engage and excite participants. Keep a look out for more information in the coming months! 

Originally named 'National Runway Cycling', the first edition took place in 1996 at Paya Lebar Air Base and has since been held at this signature venue. With increasing interest and support from the inline-skating community, the event was renamed National Runway Cycling & Skating in 2008.

Each year, the event attracts a large crowd of some 6,000 to 8,000 participants. Besides cycling and skating on the runway, participants are also treated to a host of fringe activities, performances and games for the enjoyment of families.
