SAA Cross Country Championships 2015 7th Feb, Saturday (7am)

Singapore Athletics Association Cross Country 2015

By Saranniya

We have two teams taking part for the men's open race tomorrow. Lim Thow Wee will the captain for tomorrow's Flexifitness Team A race. In team B, we have Dr Ansgar who will take charge of the other team. The two have been nominated by Coach Rameshon. In the past, we did not really have a team for men open. 

The important thing to note is that we are going for the fun of it and we are looking at improving the personal best time. We are not exactly going for any team position but for the individual personal best time.

As for the marathon runners, in our group, they will run to experience the race itself to do a better time.

In the A Team we have

There are altogether 20 runners taking part in this event. It is a 5km race for 13 years and above, irregardless whether they are men or women, and the reporting time is around 7am to 7 30am and for the collection of number tags. We will not name the other runners as we will be mentioning them after the race. 

A number of runners will be taking part in the Zoo Run 2015 on 8th Feb, Sunday. Hence, they will not take part in tomorrow's race.
