OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?
" I took up competitive running just recently and I know that I still have a lot of rooms for improvement. I hope that through joining this CCA, I will be able to continue challenging my limits and achieving milestones that I have yet to reach. Also, I believe that this is a great platform for me to meet like-minded people and also provide an outlet for me to release the stress from studies."

" Ive always wanted to be part of the track family since secondary school. But I was in Uniform Group up till my army days and could not do both. Now that I'm coming into SMU I would like to try something new. "

Training sessions are open to all and we welcome everyone of all fitness levels in both teams and implore you to join us on this journey. Join us for a session and see how it goes!
In the competitive team, we look at a higher commitment level to work towards representing the school in key athletics events (this includes IVP / Singapore University Games and other outside competitions).
On the other hand, the recreational side holds semiweekly runs catered towards different fitness levels.
At the moment, we will continue with training sessions using online platforms and are constantly monitoring the situation regarding any changes to the usage of Stadiums during this period.
Recreational runs will most likely be in the form of virtual runs when school reopens. We hope you will continue to keep fit on your own and join us when we have our virtual runs.
As the nature of the competitive team requires a higher level of commitment, there is a requirement for members to attain 75% attendance for training. Meanwhile, we would encourage anyone interested in joining the recreational team to attend a minimum of 5 runs per semester.
We provide subsidies for our members who are interested to challenge themselves in marathons and other road races when they join us and express interest in such races!
You can drop us a DM on our Instagram page or email us if you have any enquiries and we’ll be sure to get back to you.
