Athletics: Over 3,000 participate in Asics City Relay around S'pore Sports Hub

More than 3,000 runners took part in the Asics City Relay, Singapore's only night relay run, around the Singapore Sports Hub yesterday.

This year's race saw a new half-marathon category (21km), as well as a new route that featured the picturesque Kallang River as a backdrop.

Neo Jie Shi, who raced in the Rio Olympics marathon last month, made the event her first run back in Singapore. Instead of going solo, she ran with a team of friends.

Team Cicada won the newly introduced initiative "Best Dressed Team", with the girls clad in tutus and the boys in tattoo sleeves.
