As announced by NPARKS, The Round Island Route (RIR) is a continuous 150 km park connector that goes around Singapore. It will complement the existing Park Connector Network, connecting existing natural, cultural, historical, and recreational sites and linking communities together. It will provide opportunities for recreational activities such as cycling, skating, jogging, and hiking. These connections and activities will enhance our ‘City in Nature’ experience for all residents. With a large interlinking network of park connectors, you can easily park hop while indulging in various fun and recreational activities. (Credits-NPARKS)

I see your route to be off little bit here and there when i zoomed in. E.g. the part at East coast park, it goes off to the HDB part to nowhere and comes back on track again.
Do i really need to walk that portion too or can i just continue?
Am i correct to say that as long i have all 15 checkpoints and the path i take is in general, close to what the GPS route shows, i am deemed to have completed the challenge?
Just follow up the PCN some places might be reroute you can use accordingly while you walk. You will need to take pics at all the 15CP and later once completed the whole route you can just email us.
I would like to know . In order to verify that we complete the route ,we just take photos at the 15 CP and email you. We just need to be in the photos right ?
Helo Adelene, Yes you will need to walk/cycle the entire route and take the picture at all the checkpoint and make the submission to qualify for the completion of the route.
Hi, for the western part between JOHOR STRAITS LIGHTHOUSE and SUNGEI BULOH WETLAND RESERVE VISITOR CENTRE, must we follow that GPS route taking that path near the cemetary or can we join back to the NPark’s Western Adventure Loop instead? I’m more concern of the safety and fitness of my family and friends going through that long route.
Do kindly check your PM, we have responded you.

May I know the RIR has to be completed within 1 day or I can break them up (for eg. 3 CPs per day) as long as I complete before 31 Dec’21? Besides the 15 CP selfies, any other docs required like the activity log reports? Thanks.
Hello There you can complete it in segments and by end of this year 🙂 only the submit the checkpoint selfies will do for now.
Can we cycling and walking?
Yes you can either : https://sgtrek.com/singapore-round-island-route-challenge/
Hi is it we can do it in multiple days or months even as long we walk according to the map and take pictures at all the checkpoints? Then submit by 31/12/2021 is that correct?
Yes you can do on your own day and time. Need to complete the entire round island route and submit the selfie pics of the checkpoints for verification. If any queries drop us an email email@example.com
Hi.. Is there a suggested start point for the walk?
You can start and end back the same location. See what place is more convenient and do accordingly. Most of the route is easily doable.
Hi do we need to record our GPS’s route? If so where do we submit the records and selfies to?
You can email only the checkpoint photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
GPS not needed but you can record for your keepsake.
Just want to confirm that the full 150km is walkable. Heard not the full route is ready?
Most of the path is walkable, some sections may be rerouted so use the nearest alternative to complete the walk. Follow SRIR FB group, so you can get the latest updates from members about the routes : https://www.facebook.com/groups/435563304080769
