    Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon - 2-3 Dec 2017

    I wonder if the race organizers actually read this thread, to get the REAL feedback from those who really matter. i.e those who have paid good money and trained hard for the event.

    In previous years the photos were available either the night of the race or the day after. It's now been 48 hours... still nothing..

    What were the "three areas of complaints"? Seriously, there are thousands and thousand of people who spent months and months training for this event, pounding kilometer after kilometer, preparing meticulously, sticking to certain diets, to tune their bodies for the race, so that they can achieve the best possible result. Then on race day the organisers put on a shambles of an event, and "sorry for the inconvenience" is supposed to fix everything? Not good enough! The event finished 36 hours ago and still no photos??

    Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon - 2-3 Dec 2017

    I've run this race (10kms) every year for 10 years, and this year was the worse BY FAR! Whoever decided to have the 10km route on the same route as the 21 km route, and then start the 10km race at a time when we were held up by the 21km walkers, should be caned for stupidity! I spent most of my race trying to weave a path through the "Sunday strollers" who were oblivious that another race was going on around them! The race marshalls should have been asking them to keep left so the 10km runners had a clear path on the right. As I'm approaching the end I'm thinking "this feels longer than 10kms...". Sure enough my GPS (and the GPS of others) shows 10.4kms. Then at the end they change the route from instead of going in front of the Cricket Club like it's always been with the straight run to the finish line, they go on the other side, with a hard 90 degree left hand turn right at the finish. Not what you need at the end! Worst time ever. Worst experience ever. These clowns don't have much idea on how to organise and execute a world class running event. They may have just lost a loyal veteran participant with their incompetence. End rant.

    Hi!! Did u check yr timing fm marathon photos? Do u realized that the gun time n net time are the same? Is this normal? Thanks.. They've changed it. Last night gun time and net time were different, today they are same, they have increased net time to be the same as gun time, which sucks. They must have done this for everyone though because all my positions for overall/gender/division are the same as yesterday. Still no personal videos

    Thanks for the notification. Certainly hope they do upload the video! No prob. Starting price for a few photos - $60. Wow. I'm clearly in the wrong business!

    Really? They gave me 100plus, but didn't help, felt more like 100minus. They brought durians instead? Last year they replayed the entire event on their YT channel, I hope they do the same this year.

    I picked up my race pack on Thursday afternoon around 3:30PM, no queue at all. It really sucks though how those of us not in the east have to travel all the way there and back just to pick up a bib and singlet. Cost me $40 in cabs! A couple of years ago I recall they had the REPC at the MB floating platform, which was a central and fair location. If they must insist on having it all the way out near the airport then they should offer a postage service where they can mail out the bib and singlet, I'm sure it would be cheaper and more efficient than having to get transport out to Expo and back. It would also be good if their route maps provided the actual roads and elevations to give an indication of where the uphills and downhills are. The official route maps they have look like they were done by pre-school kids during fingerpainting class, not very helpful. Does anyone know if they will be streaming the race live on the SCMS youtube page as per the previous years? The website says it will be broadcast on StarHub Super Sports Arena, so for of us who don't have StarHub, I hope they will be streaming it on the youtube site.
