  1. Thank You Beepbeep ! It's nice design ! Joe can you add your name and signature on it ? Thank you very much Beepbeep
  2. Thank You Beepbeep, the published timing is incomplete and has missed out the hour with just minutes and seconds only ! Was amused when spotted five Caucasian runners with same yellow tee written "Pain Now, Beer Later" ! Hello runners! Yep, it was a pleasure to have this run in Singapore. I know these 5 german guys. I'm one of those :-) We were wondering too why the race ended that early 'cause our runtastic app just said there is 1km left to go ;-) But nethertheless, it was really a great event! A big thank you for the organizing team and sorry for my bad english :-D 11032516_911452772219828_4328651114050197574_n.jpg 11058813_911451188886653_4751019572332158104_n.jpg Marten B. This tee will be Real meaingful in events where they serve Beer after the race. Example Brooks Run Happy, Mens Health Urbanathlon etc
  3. Also runners from Hello Kitty run also didn't get their finishers Medal too. Even thought they have email the organisers.
  4. Only a few more hours before the race begins. Joe must be very busy so cant expect him to reply anymore for the time being. He has already done a much better job in communicating with us than most other race orgganisers.
  5. So far this race has been doing a very great job. From pricing to RPC & updating of info. Just hope tomorrow race turns out great as well. Wondering how those without Private transport are going to get there on time ?
  6. Final info might be updated during RPC which is only a week away now. So lets just wait patiently.
  7. Similar experience for this race compared with the previous years.
  8. He had been coming in several times before that. Maybe now he is very busy as well.
  9. This race has been making mistakes and having lots of bad reviews many year, yet runners are still signing up . Y ?
  10. Well Done on the New Route !! Just hope lighting is sufficient.
  11. People grossly underestimated their timing? Which edition of the SCMS was that? I didn't really recall different start corrals for the event. For different corrals to work, the race participants must have the integrity to follow their race corral Instead of having different colour bibs, race organisers can use letter grouping (i.e. "A" to "C" bibs for the elites & below 3 hours timing followed by subsequent letters i.e. "D" to any letter desired onwards for different timings) and enforce the corral groups on actual race day. I saw this from google images of race bibs with letter corrals from overseas races such as Phuket, Chicago, Berlin, Tokyo and Stan Chart KL 2011 edition etc. But I don't think this is happening in SCMS yet. Back to topic,it is tapering period now and stay injury free for the actual event. It was a number of years ago, and i cant be bothered to trace back. But Yes they did have Different Colour Bibs. The short version is that many people grossly underestimated their timing or just stated a timing so that they can start walking from the front. Yes they were walking from the start. i and my friends who are not fast runners saw so many of this kind of people as we slowly pass them by.
  12. If the budget for the event is not high, and you are really shortage of budget to get transportation service for FREE this time maybe can consider charging runners a Fee. Even if you charge $6 per runner, i think most will be willing to pay cause its still cheaper than taking a taxi for those who dont have private transport and you can cover a cost. Pacers to allow serious runners who are very keen in breaking PBs in 21km to achieve results is also very effective i think. Even if pacers are not very accurate with their pace through out the entire race, cause they are also human, they will most of the time try to balance out the timing in the end. So very effective for runners who need someone to follow.
  13. island wide shuttle bus services will defintely incourage more people to sign up and it will also allow those who have sign up to have a more enjoyable experience
  14. a number of years ago , they tried once, pens for every hour with different bibs colour according to your expected timing. But it didnt work out well. I think you know why ....
  15. If only they listen to the feedback of regular runners/people. But they are only interested in their elites and Gold Label. So rest bear the cost and endure. Cause they know for every 1 person that unhappy/leave many more waiting to replace the position. Familiar tag line nowadays.
  16. Come race day, All distances will be overcrowded again regardless of whatever is mention. Prices will then increase again next year . The cycle will continue.
  17. Practical & useful tips Thanks, glad you find the post useful. U r most welcome
  18. New design/hot sellers normally less discount. Older models better to get at factory outlets which offer huge discounts.
  19. This might come as I shock to some of you but ELM medals also do rust and corrode. My friend ELM medal is an example
  20. Its great that they have come up with such a magazine for the local scene. Well done !
