  1. 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??

    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.

    Banning runners from listening to music? That is ridiculous. It should be entirely the runners choice. Having music pumping in my ears has helped me to reach so many PB's over the years. What's next? Banning sunglasses? Because they might get covered in sweat and you won't be able to see properly?

    Where to find? I can't see it in that MyPace portal thingy with my photos and videos... EDIT: Ah, found it, on the main site with my official results. Reason for edit; because I'm stupid.

    No electronic PDF certificates for runners this year? They've provided them for the previous years...

    I was watching bits and pieces of the telecast here and they mentioned it, I can't recall at which minute in the telecast http://www.marathonsingapore.com/watch-the-race-live/

    The said on the telecast that this year was the slowest times since 2001?
  10. Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore - 4 Dec 2016

    I did the 10km event, I can't put my finger on why but I ran 3 mins slower than last year. Getting old The uphill on the Sheares bridge just didn't want to quit.. felt like forever. I think I preferred last years route which starts at the other end of the Esplanade bridge and then goes past the F1 pits onto Nicoll Highway. One thing I noticed was that last year in the Padang, there was a "wall" with the names of ALL runners on there from every race category. This year they just had a cube with the names of full marathon runners only. Tight asses!

    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!

  15. Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

    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.
