No, this isn't a typo. Samsun is a city in Turkey that will host the 2017 Summer Deaflympics. Analogous to the Olympics and Paralympics, the Deaflympics are held every two years, alternating between summer and winter games. The location and time of the Deaflympics is however independent of its better-known siblings.

Today I took part in the Green Corridor Run for the first time, after having missed the inaugural 2013 edition due to a cold. It was a blast! This is the best trail run I have experienced in Singapore so far, and it certainly lets you forget for a while that you are in a densely populated city state. I've been familiar with a 2km stretch of the Green Corridor before, which forms part of my running route from work to home, but today was the first opportunity to explore the remaining 8km.
