Kawan Athletics values teamwork and human connection by helping our members (Kawan) to build positive relationships with those around them. We aim to shape our Kawans' overall well-being and we all (including parents, for members under 18) have a role to play. We believe in the concept of "1 + 1 = 3" - the ultimate strength of each member is the team itself. Together we can create more, together we can go further.
We are more than just a running club, we are a family that runs hard and runs strong together to achieve our goals. To foster a greater teamwork, we also hold internal social events such as annual outing, training camp, picnic day & etc throughout the year and we are also looking forward to volunteering to a shelter in near future.
Winning is never easy and winning isn't everything in running, but the process is. What matters the most is the process of your running journey - Have you learned something throughout this journey? Have you pushed yourself to be the best that you can? Did you enjoy your run? Have you become a better person? Everyone runs for a reason and goal, have you put in the effort that moved you closer to it? If the answer is yes, then you are already winning at life.
