Tickets go on sale from now till 30 September 2019 via sesamestreetrun.com.
Sesame Street Run – About The Run
Fans of the popular American children’s television show can relive their childhood memories by meeting their beloved Sesame Street characters up close without having to make a trip to the US. The 50th-anniversary celebrations don’t just stop in Singapore. More joy will be spread across to other neighbouring countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia when they host their respective Sesame Street Run events in 2020 next year.
“We are excited to be partnering with the Sesame Workshop to launch the world’s first Sesame Street Run Tour in Southeast Asia for its 50th year anniversary,” enthused Mr. Aaron Goh, Founder of Heroes Pvt Ltd. “This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is not to be missed. Like the iconic television show which has educated and entertained children for over three generations, the run celebrates 50 years of bringing people and the community together through interaction with our favourite Sesame Street characters.”
Sesame Street Run – What’s In Store For You?
In contrast to other running events, the Sesame Street Run promises a fun-packed day with loads of activities for the whole family! The five-kilometre family run caters to all ages, from first-timers to experienced runners.

For families with younger children and grandparents in tow, the run will also have separate three and one-kilometre leisure walks so everyone can cross the finishing line together!
The 50th year run will have all participants witness a giant birthday cake blowout and be flagged-off with a countdown by Sesame Street’s very own Count Von Count. Additionally, guests signing up will also get to experience fun activities and themed Sesame Street carnival games and quizzes as well as photo opportunities with their favourite Sesame Street characters.
