Participants will be entitled to one stand-alone medal for each run, where the three medals can be combined together to form a picture of the Guardians of Singapore.

An annual event, REAL® Run sets out to promote regular exercise and a active lifestyle among our Home Team Guardians, and their families. As HomeTeamNS commemorates Singapore’s Bicentennial in this 24th edition of REAL® Run, we want to give recognition to the Lifesavers (SCDF) and Protectors (SPF) who have worked hand-in-hand as Guardians of Singapore, to ensure that we continue to enjoy safety and security.

HomeTeamNS will launch a three-part series run in this year’s REAL® Run. We will have a new bicentennial 18.19km Virtual Lifesavers Run, a 5km Protectors Run, culminating in REAL® Run in October.

  • I am very privileged and honoured for the opportunity of working with other NSmen as it is an event run by NSmen for NSmen. It's good to see the camaraderie and the pride that the units are showing.
