  1. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    Went to their facebook page and someone has indeed raised the question regarding the diversion point, this is the official reply: Hi there, if you miss the cut off time for the diversion point, you will be disqualified in terms of ranking as your distance completed will be different from those who were not diverted. In this case, you will still receive your Medal and Finisher polo when you complete the race. However, if you miss the category cut off time of 6 hours to complete the entire race, you may not receive your Medal and Finisher polo. Hope this clarifies

    I think diverted doesnt mean those who do not meet this timing will be disqualified, just need to take another route? Anyway, in this case, I guess I'll probably be one of them. Edited: Just read the race booklet, it indeed means disqualified if reach this point later than 7.15am... zzZZZ.. Wondering if there is a mistake as the cut off timing is 6hours, meaning 3hours+ for the remaining 11km?

    Yah, I was surprised that they have a package this year as their website is outdated. After sengkangboy told me they are able to put him on waiting list, I dropped them an email. Try to email them at run@cresttravel.sg

    Glad you shared the info with me earlier, they dropped me an email and offered me a slot too. Prefer this package without air tix as its more flexible.

    I got rejected too, which local running groups have confirmed slots?
  6. Income Eco Run (fka Run350) - 30 April 2017

    Last year it was back to back with 2XU, and the smaller number was more comfortable. So I guess this is good news.
  7. 50 Hours Non Stop Run 2017 - 14 -16 Apr

    Seems quite rainy this weekend, hope its good for you guys doing the race.
  8. 50 Hours Non Stop Run 2017 - 14 -16 Apr

    Jiayou! Think we ran around the same time last year. But this year i blur and forgot to sign up.. haha..
  9. Osaka Marathon 2017 26 Nov 2017

    Did Gold Coast last year, flew Friday night and came back on Monday, did not really feel that lugi as I dont really have the mood to tour much when I travel alone for overseas races. For other Japan races, usually I'll only extended for one more day till Tuesday even if I have the luxury of time, so I guess this mode of doing oversea races is okay for me. Anyway, I tio Osaka last year but did not do the race. Trying my luck again this year, will most likely do it this time round. All the best to all of you if you are balloting!
  10. 50 Hours Non Stop Run 2017 - 14 -16 Apr

    Oh, I started at 9pm last year and ended around 2am+ with the last few rounds quite deserted and there were stretches when I did not meet any runners or see anyone behind or in front of me. I was doing the race alone but it was not that scary lah, just a bit lonely in the middle of the night so quite unmotivated.

    Hmm.. its also one day before ST run..
  12. 50 Hours Non Stop Run 2017 - 14 -16 Apr

    Argghh.. just realised i forgot to sign up. In consolation, the mystery prize for finishing 15 laps is a tshirt, would prefer a special medal instead. But oh well, no chance to run this year.
  13. 2XU Compression Run 2 April 2017

    But better than cancel *crossing fingers*
  14. 2XU Compression Run 2 April 2017

    Same, collected at noon today and was in and out of the queue within minutes, shotz gels all sold out though so could not stock up on my gels. I think Sunday's collection is almost always shortest queue, but this option probably only for those who did not take part in Sundown. There was a training with pacers earlier this month so i guess there will be pacers provided you start in the first few waves.
  15. 2XU Compression Run 2 April 2017

    I can only assume with the long queue, mindlessly counting the number of drawers for each category is a good way to pass time.
