    Challenge32 - 11 Nov 18 (Sun)

    2012 was my first NC. One big loop and a smaller loop, 9 + 6 + 6 + 9.

    I missed the earlier years of Newton Challenge flagging off from The Big Splash. Not a big crowd, only 18 and 30km categories. The runners then were more "seasoned" and had better etiquette (my opinion). I am kinda hoping this one will bring back some of those vibes... (nostalgic mood) haha...

    Well said @Ender. Though the much lower prices, many participants would still expect top notch support and goodies. Efforts should be focused on the race pack collection, good crowd control, flag-off timeliness, sufficient on-route hydration. Anything else would be a bonus.
  4. Last year they tried bib printing on-demand. There were some printer issues causing massive delays. This year, bibs were printed in advance without names.
  5. I thought that's a good idea. Saves time on bib searching, and also no wastage of pre-printed bibs of those who don't collect. They can also don't print every bib in one go. Anyway it's too early to judge how effective the execution of this process is.
  6. Yea, last year was an ambitious attempt to try new things as part of the 10-years Sundown celebration.... which backfired epically. This year should be better. Fingers crossed.

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

    Many significant changes (mostly positive ones) for this edition. Could be largely due to a different event organizer? I think last year it was HiVel, the year before was PinkApple and this year is MetaSport.
  8. I would still think both will have their unique appeal. SCSM's night run (FM) will start before sunset and most will finish before midnight. SDM FM runners will start after midnight and many will end close to sunrise. Each offer different challenges and feel. I doubt SCSM night runners will be fighting the z-monsters anywhere as much as those from SDM.
  9. SCSM's plan I believe is starting in the early evening whereas SDM still be hovering around midnight start.
  10. Not yet, hopefully in the coming week.
  11. A few of my friends got the same email without registering anything. One thing in common, they were participants of previous years' events.
  12. I'm curious about the venue and routes across the 4 legs. Will it be 4 routes with no overlap? That will be interesting.
  13. What was the saga ah? Care to refresh the old mind? I recall KOTR was held in a few Asian cities. It was like 16.8km.
  14. Yup. Quoted from the website https://www.yolorun.com/21km-alfa-romeo-competizione/ : In light of Singapore's national record of 1hr 7mins 8secs for the men’s category and 1hr 23mins 16secs for the women’s category, the incredible winners of the 21KM Alfa Romeo Competizione will be the fastest male and the fastest female who can finish the race under the times of 1hr 9mins 0secs and 1hr 25mins 0secs respectively - a feat that must be achieved without the assistance of illegal drugs and steroids.
  15. You are right. And a good capture of the distance marker. Well if they indeed took that down, they should have moved the 4km and 8km ones too. But nothing was done. Short of man power? Hmmm...
