MacRitchie Runners 25 (MR25), one of the oldest running clubs around in Singapore, is inspired by the notion of running a 5km cross-country course within 25 minutes. Founded in 16 August 1976 with its motto "RUN FOR FUN", the club's aim is to sustain the interest of the runners; to train regularly; and to strive to improve one's physical fitness.
To become a MR25 member, one has to complete a time trial on a cross-country course (approximately 5km) below 25 minutes. Based on the timing, members are categorized into one of the nine animal types by hierarchy, namely: Cheetah, Gazelle, Ostrich, Hare, Hourse, Greyhound, Deer, Tortoise and Snail.
A club by runners for runners - MR25 is passionate about running, whether is for the joy or for competitive performance. To us, every runner is a winner. We are a running group where we come together to share our passion and to render support and encourage fellow runners.
