Running app wins Splash Award

RunSG, an app entered by a team from Hwa Chong Institution (College Section) at the Splash Awards, clinched the top prize in the Pre-Tertiary Category this year. 

The app charts routes for runners using data on traffic conditions and air quality, creating the most rewarding routes for the runner based on the distance he is looking to run. It also encourages runners to meet up and run together. 

The app also picked up the data.gov.sg prize for the ‘Best Use of Open Data’. 

Organised by the Singapore Computer Society (SCS), Splash Awards, now in its 11th year, aims to engage youth across tertiary and pre-tertiary institutions in Singapore to nurture their skills and passion for infocomm technology in a unique and creative way.
