What are the different checkpoint types in the MSIG Biodiversity Mission?

There are standard checkpoints and boost checkpoints across all of Singapore. Green checkpoints are worth 100 points, and the Boost checkpoints will give you double points for 3 minutes.

You also receive 200 points for every 1km travelled during an activity.

During the special Trail Challenges for this Mission, you will have a 60-minute timer. Along the way you may experience any of these different types of checkpoints:

  • Green (Checkpoint): Run through the location to collect points.
  • Yellow (Discovery Quiz Question): Use your surroundings to find the clue, and answer the question.
  • Pink (Boost): Receive double points for checkpoints collected and distance travelled for the next 3 minutes.
What safety measures should I be aware of for the MSIG Biodiversity Mission?

Your safety, and the safety of our community, is our number one priority.

Be sure to observe traffic safety laws and park etiquettes when completing your run. Please also practice safe social distancing as mandated by the authorities.

Why should I try the special Trail Challenges?

The special challenges contain fun and informative questions about why biodiversity is so important in the mitigation of climate change and how you can help to protect it. These challenges also give you an opportunity to score more points than a normal run.

We are also giving away prizes specifically for people who try out these challenges.
