Tanjong Rhu Park Connector : Running Route

It's back to running.

We have not explored new running routes for a while. With the long weekend, we took the opportunity to run on Tanjong Rhu Park Connector.

Tanjong Rhu Park Connector starts under Benjamin Sheares Bridge and hugs the Tanjong Rhu Promenade coastline. It extends all the way to Geylang Park Connector. The entire route is about 2km.

We are doing a loop from Benjamin Sheares Bridge to Tanjong Rhu Lookout for this run. The total distance for this run is about 3.3km. Most runners would usually run in the other direction towards Bay East Gardens, so this is a relatively quiet route. 
Starting Point

You could run more towards Geylang Park Connector or extend your run to Bay East Gardens to make your runs longer.

The Run
Golden Mile

The first thing that will catch your eye is the Golden Mile Complex across the river. The iconic triangular structure always reminds me of Spiderman. It would not be hard to imagine Spiderman scaling this building. 
Singaproe Indoor Stadium

Running after the bend, another iconic building- Singapore indoor stadium comes into sight.
Exercise Machine

You would run past a set of exercise machines. 

Across the road is a large field where you would see people playing a game of cricket or football.

This stretch of road is shaded and pleasant to run. If you are up early, you can catch the sunrise from here.

After this part would be Pebble Bay, a row of river fronting condominiums. If you are looking for a 'seaview' unit, this would be one of the best places to live.

Along the way, you might spot some water activities at Geylang River.

After a loop around the promenade, you will reach the Tanjong Rhu Pier.

On the right is the Tanjong Rhu suspension bridge. Cross it and link up with Kallang Riverside Park Connector.
If you need a break, stopping at the Tanjong Rhu Lookout Tower would be good to watch the world go by.

If you want a longer run, keep running towards Geylang Park Connector.

As this is a loop run, you can run back to the starting point from here.
Let's head back!

Getting there

The route would be easier to access from Stadium MRT. In the future, Tanjong Rhu MRT can be another alternative as it is just at the doorstep of Tanjong Rhu Lookout. There is parking near the Benjamin Sheares Bridge along Rhu Cross for those driving.
