Let’s Run to the Moon with POCARI SWEAT
“Astronauts” will combine their efforts to cover the final 80,000KM to the Moon and turn their dreams into reality
Singapore, 01 March, 2016 – The POCARI SWEAT Run returns for the fifth consecutive year; this time with a special mission to complete. On 23 July 2016 at 5pm, runners will combine their efforts to complete the final leg of POCARI SWEAT’s journey to the Moon at The Float @ Marina Bay. 

Inspired by the idea of a drinkable I.V. Solution, POCARI SWEAT is developed by Otsuka Pharmaceutical in Japan, and is the closest composition to your BODYWATER (human body fluid), for proper hydration of people to sustain healthy conditions; physically and mentally. Based on the philosophy of creating new products for better health worldwide, Otsuka Pharmaceutical is launching a POCARI SWEAT Capsule to the Moon, in support of mankind’s continuous exploration into the unknown since its birth in 1980. This project is called Lunar Dream Capsule Project. 

Astronauts struggle to maintain their health while travelling in space and one of the major contributing factors is the lack of proper hydration. As POCARI SWEAT is the closest to your BODYWATER, it is therefore essential for survival and in maintaining body functions.  

Similar to the concept of ascending to the Moon, POCARI SWEAT is calling out to runners to join the brand in completing the journey and running together in this year’s edition of the Run. In the four years that the POCARI SWEAT Run has been held in Singapore, runners have covered a total of 300,000 KM, which is more than 75% of the distance between the Earth and the Moon. In 2016, with a remaining distance of 80,000 KM, participants can make history by taking part in either the 5KM or 10KM category, with each step contributing to the journey to the Moon.  

Before astronauts ascend to space, they have to go through lunar landing programs to prepare themselves for their journey. There will be activities such as astronaut recruitment centers, based in selected NTUC FairPrice hyper-marts, which involve hydration examinations and space run simulations to heighten the anticipation for the Run. In addition, POCARI SWEAT will be conducting “Space Training Programs” to help prepare registered “Astronauts” for their mission. The running clinics seek to help participants to achieve their goals and personal bests for the upcoming POCARI SWEAT Run

Thematic elements will be included throughout the POCARI SWEAT Run; from the appearance of a space expert to space-themed refueling stations, or hydration points, which will allow runners to properly hydrate themselves in order to achieve their peak performance. These will give participants a feel of their journey from the Earth to the Moon, much like a lunar expedition.
