Organised by Mercy Relief, the Ground Zero Race is in its fifth instalment. This race allows participants to experience a disaster survivor's journey at ground zero - the disaster site - where there is a need to collect urgent supplies required to endure the immediate aftermath of a humanitarian disaster by carrying a bag of rice and racing against time in a run for humanity.
Due to safety measures for the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ground Zero Race is now a 'Virtual Challenge'!

Now called the Ground Zero Bike+Run Virtual Challenge, we have introduced the new Cycling category to invite more people to join us in running or cycling for a good cause. Participants get to decide where and when your running/cycling track is: Be it in your neighborhood, along East Coast Park or even on the treadmill. Run/cycle solo, or team up to complete your chosen distance all at once or divide it up to fit your schedule.

Do your part in empowering vulnerable communities in Asia Pacific. Sign up today in support of our humanitarian efforts!


All participants are invited to contribute to the Ground Zero Bike+Run Virtual Challenge through fundraising efforts which will be channeled towards our 'Impact Fund'. This fund will allow us to scale our impact both locally and regionally for us to reach out to more communities affected by natural disasters. Donations to our Impact Fund will enjoy a 250% tax exemption.
