NUS’ annual largest running event will be back for the 8th time on 24th August 2014. This year, new elements have been added to the event! Continue reading to find out about the Carnival and the unique Family Challenge race.
Now in its eighth year, RunNUS is the largest and the most anticipated annual running event for NUS alumni, students and staff. Organised by the NUS Students’ Sports Club, the event is open not only to members of NUS but to the public as well.
Every year, RunNUS supports the NUS Annual Giving campaign, an annual campaign that aims to raise funds for student support. Net proceeds from runners’ fees, and individual pledges support University-wide bursaries for NUS students in financial need. For more information on the NUS Annual Giving campaign, visit www.annualgiving.nus.edu.sg.
A new highlight for this year’s RunNUS would be the carnival to be held alongside the main running events. Participants are encouraged to attend the event with their families and soak in the joyous atmosphere with top NUS bands performing and various other exciting carnival activities and games.
But that’s not all! There is a brand new Family Challenge segment for parents to bond with their kids over our specially crafted programmes.
Whether a dedicated runner or not, the 10KM Competitive Run is open to all! Push your limits to finish the route in the fastest time, or take a slow jog and enjoy the scenery. Yes, that’s right – we have a unique NUS-only scenic route, exclusive only to RunNUS. Top runners in the 10KM Competitive will walk away with attractive prizes!
