As part of an April Fool’s Day campaign, Durex Singapore is presenting the “Come Run” –  an adults-only night run set to take place on September 6th of this year. Described by Durex as being”the most satisfying run of the year, Come Run invites couples to come together and finish together.”

For the event, runners can choose between two runs, a 6 or 9-kilometre distance, which they can run at their own pace.

April Fools!


Durex has had its share of  April Fool’s pranks on social media and the promotion of faux products over the years including marketing unusually flavored condoms (Durex Smoked Sausage in 2018 and Durex Mala HotPot in 2019).

In actuality, says the brand, the Come Run is another one of their April Fool’s jokes and registrants are signing up for a non-existent run; but as part of their marketing strategy, Durex will still be giving away exclusive race packs to those who registered.

“Another year has gracefully unfolded, brimming with delightful deceptions and playful pranks,” said Jerome Goh, Head of Marketing OTC & Intimate Wellness MYSG.

“At Durex, we tirelessly strive to deliver unparalleled amusement and merriment to the masses, as we revel in the jubilant spirit of April Fool’s Day. Firmly rooted in our DNA, we ardently believe that fun ideas breathe life into our existence – COME RUN with us!”
