    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    Yes it is one of my pet peeves too. Sign up without knowing the route etc. I suppose it’s a chicken and egg thing. Organizers wanna start registration as will take long time for route to be approved (and maybe, just maybe if not enough people sign up then change route or cancel the route closure application). On their hand, some participants won’t sign up until details are known.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    It was quite windy and not as hot as I feared. For bananas, I was in earlier wave and manage to help myself to one each at each station. But I didn’t see that many lying around to be honest (like in cartons). Maybe the supply was limited. Did anyone see gels? I didn’t see any. Only some energy bars or something? And some tube-like thing. Didn’t take in case stomach upset cos never tried before this Mule(?) brand. Very generous with giving out the pocari and water at the finish. I took 2 pocari and 2 bottles of water. The volunteers were literally urging me to take more. If they have so much stock, maybe should have allocated more to the stations along the route. Lastly the massage place is really obscure even if it’s just next to the medal chute. I asked a security he pointed me to a place where it’s just the OSIM foot massage thing. Asked the OSIM volunteers wearing yellow tee there and they said don’t have lie down on table kind. In the end I found it myself cos I spied some table legs beneath the half shut shutters at F1 pit. It was literally just next to the foot massage place and the OSIM volunteers didn’t even know oh my god. The masseurs inside were very free! So many empty tables. I enjoyed a good long massage of my calves. First time massage service no business!

    Singapore Kindness Run 2019 - 3rd Aug (Sat)

    hmmm venue is national stadium and Singa medal....price not too bad...worth considering...
  4. And also, it was mentioned that one of the criteria for marathon major is to have at least 15k FM finishers. Last year, there were 13.5k FM finishers. So they are hoping more runners will come out to support the FM the year. I’m wondering- then why raise price for FM by so much? From the Q&A, I also get the impression that there will be more of the city in the route this year, to get more crowd to come. Probsbly still can’t avoid ECP but maybe can minimize
  5. FM should be evening race on Saturday.
  6. Oh I see. I haven’t 300. Will only reach this year. Haha.
  7. Pre sale? Registration started?
  8. Thanks for the info. Good luck for your race.
  9. Was the 101km also this price last year?

    SG Ultra Marathon 2019 - 19 (Sat) & 20 (Sun) Oct.

    Last year they have both the SG run and the ultra marathon on the same day. Essentially the same event but marketed differently. So I expect the same this year. I n fact I expect the route to be the same too. Haha

    Yellow Ribbon Prison Run 2019 - 15 Sep (Sun)

    But the bus service is not like other major races. It doesn’t start at housing estates. Every year I have to take Grab or taxi yo Expo for the bus. Very expensive. That’s the only thing I don’t like about this race.

    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    from my observations of the novena velocity key power store, they have downsized the store space and still not many customers. I doubt that collectively their stores are profitable. Not sure what other business they have. Personally I also think not likely there will be another 2XU run - at least not under key power anyway.

    I thought previous years also have relay? But I could be wrong. Paging @lonewolf

    50 Hours Non-stop Run 2019 (19 Apr - 21Apr)

    It’s true. I had tons of gels and snacks left, which I bright along. In the end could finish cos those supplied at checkpoints were good enough. Esp the latter stages as o was walking mostly and no need to really eat.
