About Us

RunNUS is an annual running event organized by NUS Students’ Sports Club to promote healthy lifestyles among the NUS population and the public.

Since its inception in 2007, RunNUS has become one of the biggest and most anticipated event for NUS students, staff and alumni. Above running and fun, RunNUS will be partnering with NUS Disability Support Office (DSO) and inviting Social Service Organizations (SSOs) this year. With the tagline ‘Run For A Cause’, we aim to empower the community of People With Disabilities/Special Needs (PWDSNs) through inclusiveness.

Our Race Ambassor, Xing En, is a Year 3 undergraduate at NUS. Affected by Senior Loken Syndrome, her vision has worsened over time, causing her to be visually-impaired. Refusing to let her condition stop her love for running, Xing En will be flagging off and taking part in the 3KM Challenge at RunNUS this year.
