ST Paper Chase is cancelled

Singapore, 17 July 2010 – The ST Paper Chase has been cancelled due to a heavy downpour and the presence of thunder and lightning this morning.

Organised by Sphere Exhibits, a subsidiary of SPH, the ST Paper Chase is a 5km competitive run for schools held at the Fort Lawn at East Coast Parkway.

Said Mr Chua Wee Phong, Executive Director, Sphere Exhibits, “The safety of our participants is the utmost priority. Besides the poor weather, we cancelled the event as the venue will be used for the upcoming Youth Olympic Games. We would like to thank our event partners, schools and participants for their support. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

For schools and individual students who have signed up for the ST Paper Chase, they will be notified on the collection of their goodie bags.
