    Registered. Failed to get it for 2018. I really need some luck after failing to get Tokyo and London for 2019.

    Running 50km ultra without training!

    Hi, it was ok. Tired out after 30km and it was walk and jog. Still manage to finish in 6h54m. Was not too bad for my first ultra. I lost it in terms of food and water discipline. Was too hungry and I ate a bit too much and drank too much of isotonic drink at the workers’ dormitory. Ended up with a tummy ache and had to poo at the toilets along ECP. Need to have a better plan next time.
  4. From their FB posting, I signed up at Our Tampines Hub and got a free and very basic UA backpack. If you are going to sign up, do head down to Our Tampines Hub.

    SG Run 2018 6 Oct 18

    Agreed. I find that there is a lack of directional signboards. Almost miss the left turn back to the dark area to the NSRC as there was no one in front of me.

    SG Run 2018 6 Oct 18

    I did the 50km. On the way out, water points along ECP was ok. Once we hit the changi coast road, I realized the importance of self sufficiency. Some runners were just carrying a small water bottle. I wondered how they did it. On the way back, we had 3 water points on ECP, and one of them was unmanned! Bottles of isotonic and water were just placed on the large green containers. Runners would have easily missed them. i wonder if there is any replenish left for the 84km and 100km runners on their return leg.
  7. Hi, Need some tips. I am taking over my bro's bib for the 50km event. I have done 16 marathons since 2010, but never an ultra marathon. I run 12km and 19km every Tuesday and Saturday respectively to maintain my core fitness. This event is last minute as my bro is away and cannot make it for the race. So, I am taking over without the training. I planned to keep to 7 km / hr and finish the run in 7 hrs. I don't have a hydration bag. But I will use a hydration belt (4 bottles). Do you use gels for ultra? Any other tips will be helpful.
  8. For the start of the 21km, I felt some parts were too narrow. And it was also hard to overtake as I was in wave 2. It got much better for me only after 10km. End result it was the worst 21km for me 🤣.

    I guess it is the time to manage the servers and so on. Not easy if you have a full time job and family.

    Are you not supposed to update it using Garmin Express?

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    Thanks for the offer, but it is not necessary. My bib was given by someone else. So, I already got a free run. I am just surprised at their attitude. There will be leftover medals and it will be disposed off. So, they could taken my name down and contact me later.

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    My garmin showed 21.47km. But then it is not a gold class event. So, the actual distance may not be accurate either. Overall, it was ok. I checked into the race pen at 4:15 but ended up in the last wave. Wave 4 and 5 started together at about 5:10. MC said there was some issue but I could not make out what he said. On a personal note, I was careless and dropped the medal. Tried to make my way back but stopped by security. Then they asked me to go to information counter to ask for a replacement medal. I went there and they tell me everyone is entitled to one only. The tone I got from them was “Since you lost it, it is your problem”. I admit being careless, but I never asked for a replacement medal and security refused to let me look for it. Such a letdown.
