This year's Shape Run will introduce 30 male runners as pacers - chosen not only for their running abilities but also their pin-up looks.
Ms Diana Lee, general manager of fashion and beauty at Singapore Press Holdings, the organiser, said: 'This is a chance for women to chase the guys for a change. It's to introduce a fun element, to provide 'eye candy' for the runners.'
After seeing this picture, my wife says: "Eee! Who wants to chase them? I'll run away from them!"
She also asks: "Why can't they hire the Abercrombie models?"
She's right. Even I would run after the Abercrombie models.
