It is Singapore’s 56th birthday and we have come up with something special for you to play!  
#TOGOSG56 challenge will go live from 23 July 2021 to 15 August 2021.

We have created no less than 26 achievements you can unlock throughout the challenge. 
You can play with friends, with neighbors and everyone you know.  Now, the question is:

How do you maximize your wins? 
How do you decide on a combination of challenges that suits you?
How do you play even when you don’t want to exercise?

Here is our guide on how to decide your combination of challenges. You can do any number of combinations that strike your fancy.

Decide your commitment level – how many km maxes are you willing to sweat for cycling and/or running for this challenge?
Choose an achievement that meets your maximum commitment. 
From here, figure out how to meet extra conditions that will unlock other achievements as well in the process!

Mix and match for yourself, see if you can unlock another achievement with minimum hassle, for example, by doing your cycle or run at certain times of the day or certain dates. Now, for the hardcore and diehards out there, let us give you the three most efficient combos that you can follow to MAXIMISE your number of wins in #TOGOSG56. 

NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATION

Are you planning to cycle just to celebrate the national day itself? If so, you can easily unlock the True Blue Singaporean achievement by running or cycling for at least 5.6 km on 9 August 2021 (00:00 – 23:59 GMT + 8). While you are at it, your cycling will also contribute to the Nation Builder goals, which is to complete a total of 560 000 km of cycling or running. 

And in the same spirit of nationality, what is a better way to ra-ra the whole nation to celebrate with you than to register as District Challenger! If you are a proud neighbourhood kind of guy, register to represent your district, and you will unlock this achievement. The district with the most number of km clocked in will stand to win District Champion. 

If you win District Champion, you’ll stand a chance to win Livall NEO60 Helmet, only 10 pieces up for grabs! 
So far, the Punggol district is leading the pack with the most number of signups! Do you think you have what it takes to compete with them?
