    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    Greedy sounds more like it... if they did not had enough runners they would not have closed registration earlier. Seems like Pink Apple had not taken into the feedback in the past years that this run is severely oversubscribed despite them increasing registration fees... yet they don't control the number of runners. What to do... We are at the mercy of these organizers....Can only boycott to make a clearer stand....

    Sigh... Why do they do that....now the run is going to be oversubscribed again because they want to make more money........

    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    Exactly where on the official website did it say it might be cancelled? Maybe my understanding of English is bad, but I combed through the entire website and didn't read anything about it. And gosh can you don't use full caps? You really don't have much internet etiquette.... On the other hand....at its official Facebook page just hours ago.... "Registration for 2XU Compression Run 2019 is full! Thank you so much for your overwhelming support. See y’all at the F1 Pit Building on 7th April!""

    Safari Zoo Run 2019 - 24 Feb (Sun)

    You can refer to the previous years. I don't think they will change since the zoo has strict regulations on the route and timings to follow.

    Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018, 8 April

    Registered as well. Hope the good organization and reviews from last year will continue on this year. See you guys in KL in late Sept.
  7. Nope... Didn't take part last year. Since the routes had just been changed last year, most likely will stick to the same routes again this year.

    COUNTU - Best Ring Timer and Lap Counter

    Bro... you never really stopped attacking her, do you? Just leave her alone please.
  9. Wow... Any source to share? Coz I didn't see it on any of the social channels. If it official from Running Guild, we can start a new thread on it. Thought about re-joining this year but most likely can't make it if it is that week though. Wah lau please give up liao lah.....he confirm won't join haha #2 - wasn't the list of food at every checkpoint shared beforehand? Not sure why would you be expecting meals/burgers to be served. In any case...skipping a full meal is not really a mistake, coz everyone's dietary need is different. I skipped a full meal for my 101km because I don't have much appetite for food - the snacks/fruits served at the checkpoint were quite sufficient to keep me going already, and had just a cup noodles the entire day (if that even considered a full meal), so I think it was a 30-45 min time well saved had I stopped for meals. For my 78km attempt, I stopped for 2 meals (skipped taking the food at the checkpoints). That also didn't feel like a mistake because was really feeling less tired and more appetite for food.

    Income Eco Run 2019 - 28 Apr (Sun)

    I think the organizer of the run is doing things that essentially contradicts one another. Firstly, the definition of zero waste to them is not to have finisher shirt and medal. Zero waste runners still use the paper cups during the run, so this doesn't make them true zero waste. With the cup, it is really debatable as to how many would actually carry it during the run. So if it is exclusively to just them and not all of them will use it, this creates more waste also. By not providing the cup to the other runners, this prevents other runners from creating less waste if they decide to use the cup. But that being said, if they give to everyone but not everyone will use them, this creates even more waste as well. I know I am in the minority, but the biggest missed opportunity is that they should aim to be the first run without use of paper cups. This would then truly work towards the theme of less waste.

    Amazing Thailand Marathon Bangkok 2018

    If you do a Google search you will see that this year's edition is happening THIS WEEKEND.
  12. I believe the last Star Wars Run is still making money based on the sign-ups, and it is on a Saturday, so I don't see why it will not be happening....
  13. Would prefer a Saturday for a trail run too............wonder why the shift to Sunday...... Assuming it was still May 4th, would you have go for this run and TPS-1? I think you are fit enough to take back to back HM weekends....... The same issues will likely to be around again if they are still using the same route....

    Marathon happened in India recently

    Didn't join, or even knew about it until you posted here. Google about it and apparently it was named "the hottest marathon in the world"? Wonder how hot it would be compared to runs like in Kenya and Gobi desert...
