    2018 - MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50

    Other than leaves being part of trees, why are they being associated with a trail run? 😐 Agree that the design is better without the leaves.

    Garfield Run & Carnival 2018 (10 June)

    They cancelled in May and back then the meeting has yet to be confirmed.

    Garfield Run & Carnival 2018 (10 June)

    Suddenly recalled about this run and when I did a check on the Internet and the event Facebook page, was rather surprised that it was cancelled apparently. What a disappointing 40th birthday it must have been for Garfield.

    Hmmm it is too much of a coincidence then. I don't think I have the power to telepath anyone's mind though. Anyway anyone knows where to check the finisher timing or any FB page to look for photos? Thanks!

    CSC Run by the Bay 2018 - 20 Oct (Sat)

    I remembered there was one year (2016?) the sign up for Newton Run came in less than 2 months (sometime in late Aug or early Sept) when everyone was also speculating if it is going to happen or not. Should not be an issue for Pink Apple since very likely it will be another template run where everything will be the same or similar as per last year's run. But last year's numbers of registered runners seem quite bad though, so if Newton is no longer going to be a title sponsor they may indeed have to scrape the run.

    Did you chat with a 30+ years old guy sitted next to you after the run? If so, that was me haha.

    Most of my comments about the race have been more or less covered by the others. Pros - Hydration points have snacks and bananas provided, would be good if they expand the variety Cons - Water not cool, no isotonic drinks even at the finish line. Sad to hear that there are runners who did not get to get their hydration at all. Seriously, how difficult it is to provide ample water and isotonic for runners who pay good money for your run? - Some of the route markers are not so visible. Saw quite a number of lost runners. One of the 64km runners even ran back to Macritchie not realising there are loops. - Should have at least a few distance markers so that runners can better manage their pacing. Also because of no distance markers and those who never study the race route like me, some runners got a shock 50m to the finish line that we were supposed to detour and ran another 4km around Lornie Road and back into Macritchie again. Lesson learnt for me is to study the race route more carefully the next time. - Should have at least 1 more hydration point as there was none from 12 to 23km. Overall a 2.5/5 for me. Most likely won't join again next year.

    3 Ten Run 4th Edition - 25 August 2018

    Army Half Marathon is next day morning... but this has always been a small scale run so I don't think will affect its registration much. Rather scenic run to run inside a golf course... Get to enjoy a family carnival after the run also... Price is rather reasonable so for those who have yet to try it would recommend to run it at least once...
  10. I thought shit stirring is to deliberately blow up something that is not true or taken out of context? Doesn't seem to be the case here. Truth is XE has indeed poorly managed all of its events.

    HOOGA Run 2018 - 6 Oct (Sat)

    To be honest I also never notice it as well. Like what warp9web said it is not very prominent. How many more people do you want to insult to boost your eagle eye ego?

    Someone made a sizeable contribution so the target was met much earlier. Nevertheless thanks to everyone who has helped. I am assuming this is enough to keep it running for only another year, so hopefully everyone can help out again next year.

    Seems like the contributions have slowed down after the first day. @thelonelyrunner Do you want to announce this on the main page instead, so that more people are aware of this pledge for donations?

    Thanks bro for allowing us to do our part to help keep this forum going. Again, many thanks for your contributions to keep this thing going for the last 13 years! Very heartening to see that there is already a number of backers funding the project. Hopefully more of us can come forward to help contribute some money to get the place running for at least another year.

    A lot more? More than $1,000 a year for 13 years? Even at $800 a year that's about SGD10K already. That's really a lot of money being put forth to maintain this forum so that the runners in Singapore can benefit from the information sharing. Really thankful and appreciative to TheLonelyRunner for putting in so much time and money into this forum for so long.
