More than four hundred runners, from all over Singapore, gathered at Fort Canning Hill one September morning, for the SMU Mile Run 2015. Organised by the SMU Run Team, the SMU Mile Run features a hilly and scenic route around Fort Canning. Do not underestimate this run– there are plenty of steps and inclines scattered along the route around Fort Canning Hill to give any athlete a run for her money!
Lai Yit Khai, the President of the SMU Run Team, joined us for a chat immediately after wrapping up the event. Having spent the entire night without sleep in preparation for race day, he sat down for some well-deserved rest.
