    Oh yah, you're right, I remember starting off the race with the relay people last year. Hmm.. I saw it in the mailer as something new, I guess its the distance that is new, if I'm not wrong the relay was not 12.8km x 4 last year.

    Yeah, agree that it is good they are listening to feedback to push back the start time. I do remember the weather got better when it was nearer to 6pm. Something new this year is the team relay? Think they lost some participants due to asics relay last year so they try to make up for it? And they're also going eco friendly this year. "Join us on this eco-friendly journey and use the reusable cups given out at the finish line for your drinks. Take the extra step and choose the opt out option for your bag and t-shirt/singlet." I've thrown/donated the hydration backpack given last year so I guess I dont mind the eco friendly option.

    Agree with that, I dont mind just having the bib to run and nothing else, too many race tee at home and I find it a hassle to travel to town for REPC. Hopefully they can consider just posting the bib to us, cutting cost further and its more environmentally friendly. Honestly, I have a problem dealing with the freebies in the race pack collected over all these years, feel like its a waste if i just throw them away.

    Bridging shuttle service to and from stadium mrt was quite good last year, queue was long at the end of the race but moving fast.

    From the poster lonewolf posted up there, its a sunset race. Guess the timing will be like last year, but agree that it was horribly warm last year when the race started around 5-6pm. It was only slightly cooler after total sunset. Race atmosphere was not too bad last year although the venue was GBTB east.

    Seems like more last minute sellers than buyers this year..

    Until now no news, a bit disappointed as I had taken part in the past two editions. Doesnt make sense to have it on any other dates than 4th May, so i guess it's not happening this year.

    Yep, I definitely hope they will change the course and end at city centre, hopefully race pack collection too. It was a pain heading back to my hotel in Namba as I got injured. Didnt do well this time round but I'm glad I completed. The Japanese are very strict in race execution, a lot of runners were blocked from heading to their start pens as they did not make it before 8.45am. I'm not sure if they started right at the back or what, but there were really a whole lot of them as I was standing right at the junction where they tried to run to their blocks from Osaka castle side. Hoards of runners were just strolling along at first, and 5 min before 8.45am, I could see many of them really running and rushing.

    Osaka Marathon 2018 - 25th November 2018

    That is bad news for me, due to work commitments, I only took part these two years when they pushed it to end November. Weather was cooling and good for running as its very late autumn and early winter (about 10+ degrees). Nevertheless, a new course ending at city area is a good change as the last 5 km or so was pretty much ulu land and Intex Osaka is rather out of the way. I also vaguely remember that the race date for the following year was out on race day last year but this year there was only this huge banner mentioning the change in route. So I guess a change in date might really take place.

    If its any consolation, tomorrow is a sunny and warm day (though I prefer chilly weather). All the best to everyone for tomorrow's race!

    That's really strange, I've declared a slower timing than you like 5 hour but I'm in Pen L. Did you indicate any past races pb timing?

    Osaka Marathon 2018 - 25th November 2018

    Yeah it should be, dont be surprised at the number of toilets they provide for such major race, but still go early as there will still be a queue and if you missed the timing, you can only start from the last pen. They also have rows of toilets with just urinals for the guys and no doors, i was quite amused when i saw it last year but was too shy to take any pics.
