Global sensation Japanese animation comes to Singapore as part of Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2016!


One Punch Man Run: Hero for Fun, is the world’s first fun run themed after the Japanese hit animation sensation, “One Punch Man”. This event is presented by Avex Asia.

This event is part of the lineup of Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2016 (AFA SG 16), and it will happen on the 26th of November (Saturday) from 7am in the morning. The run village will be located at F1 Village and the route includes the road along F1 Pit Building and Nicoll Highway. In proximity is the venue of AFA SG 16 at Suntec City Convention Center.

One Punch Man Run: Hero for Fun, is a challenged filled fun run following the story of the main character “Saitama” and his journey to become a hero. Participants will get to enjoy an approximately 4km course and overcome obstacles and participate in after race activities.

Participants purchase entry tickets which entitles them to a race entry pack, which includes a limited edition official One Punch Man Run T-shirt and other goodies that will be released periodically before the event. This race entry pack will be collected prior to the event, and then on the event day, the participants will have to fight through on-route attractions, photo points and games and activities.


This time, as an official part of AFA SG 16, which had garnered over 85,000 people last year, One Punch Man Run aims to touch the hearts of the anime fans in Singapore and South East Asia and give them a Hero experience they will never forget.
