NTU SPORTS CLUB'S 28th MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
Established in 1991, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Sports Club promotes an array of sports activities in NTU, and is currently led by its 28th Management Committee for the Academic Year 2018/2019.
NTU Sports Club aspires to deliver a rich and dynamic sports lifestyle to all NTU students and public alike. With the support of its 21 sub-clubs, NTU Sports Club offers a wide range of activities to cater to the diverse needs of every student. Each year, NTU Sports Club organises school events such as Sports Challenge, Sports Exposé and Sports Unlimited. Additionally, NTU Sports Club also serves as the proud organiser of three reputable national events — Surf N Sweat, Bike Rally and National Vertical Marathon.
Designed as an alternative to conventional flat-road marathons, National Vertical Marathon (NVM) is a race that sees its participants scale the entirety of a skyscraper. It is a sport that befits Singapore, an urban city filled with tall buildings, and provides a hearty physical challenge to all participants as well.
Being the brainchild of NTU Sports Club, NVM has had an extremely remarkable 24-year run since its official inception in 1994. The overwhelming response received from the large congregation of climbing enthusiasts each year ensures that NVM continues to be a success. In fact, the continued success of NVM has inspired many other vertical marathons all across Singapore, making NVM one of the pioneer events for this relatively new marathon of stair-climbing.
National Vertical Marathon 2019 is proudly organised by the 25th Organising Committee, whose goal is to bring the simple sport of stair-climbing to people of all ages and walks of life, sportsmen or not. The committee hopes that NVM 2019 will further develop the prominence of vertical marathon events in the public eye, and encourage healthy lifestyles.
