In the past couple of years, we’ve seen many a run grace our little island.

We’ve seen just about everything, from character-themed runs (Pokemon run, Hello Kitty Run, Star Wars Run), to festival-inspired runs (The Music Run, The Color Run), to some… pretty strange runs. Teh Tarik Run, I’m looking at you.

Clearly, Singaporeans love their runs, and with so many different themes to choose from, a boring 5K or 10K can become a lot more exciting – especially with a fun run pack and a nice T-shirt thrown in.

While runs like these offer calorie-burning benefits and all the novelty that comes with the themes, one other benefit of going for these runs is to meet new people – specifically, people of the opposite sex. As they say, love can blossom in strange places, so who are we to stand in its way?

The next time you go for a fun run, save these 8 pick-up lines to use on that cutie you spot running nearby.

1. This is definitely a run, ‘cus you’ve been running through my mind the entire time.

2. You can stop running after your dreams. I’m right here.

3. I’ll let you run ahead of me because I’m chasing the girl (or guy) of my dreams.

4. It doesn’t matter if you don’t win the race, you still take the #1 spot in my heart.

5. This 5K is nothing compared to how far we’ll be walking towards our future.

6. They say The Color Run is the happiest 5K on the planet. I guess it’s true, because I get to meet you.

7. Are you a sprinter? ‘Cus I relay want to date you.

8. Do you run marathons? ‘Cus I would go the distance for you.

Thought some of these were hella cheesy? Well, sometimes, cheesy is enough to get the ball rolling.

Unlike previous editions of The Color Run, this year, the happiest 5k on the planet goes nocturnal, and will be taking place at night. Expect to be doused from head to toe in bright, neon colors at each kilometer and see the colors set aglow with your black light headlamp!

You won’t be the only ones glowing in this ultraviolet affair – the color zones and night attractions spread though the neon course will also be glowing bright in the night.

Come dressed in your boldest, brightest neon styles, and find yourself plastered in pretty, glowing color by the end of the night!

Once you’ve finished your run, party the rest of the night away to pumping music and yet more color throws!
