    Have you stop participating in the races?

    Havent done any local race this year, only did Star Wars Run as hubby wanted to join in the fun. I ditched SCMS after 2014 and went for overseas events the following year, did 3 in 2015 and 2 last year. Hope to do 1 overseas FM end of this year. I lost the motivation to join local races, I used to do at least 10 or even more years ago. It is a way to get me into training but now that I can do my own training of up to 20km, I just sign up for 21km and above races every now and then. Even so, I feel so lazy nowadays, I find it a hassle to specially go down to town to collect race pack, wake up early and travel to race start point etc.

    The Goodbye SGRunners forum page thread

    Think we tried moving there when the forum had issues a few years back, but it didnt feel like home so we quickly moved back once this was up and running again. Cant believe it's been almost 7 years since i joined the forum, there's so many valuable information and knowledge that I've gained and friendships forged. I'm so sad that all this will be history soon, i'll feel lost when I need information about upcoming races. Still, many many thanks to the admin TheLonelyRunner for managing this all these years. Hope to see everyone around somewhere.. someday!

    Star Wars Run 2018 - 5 May (Sat)

    Luckily I signed up for 5.4km only, so only started 8 plus after the elaborate fanfare of fireworks. It was still warm and humid though, only no hot sun. Lots of family with young children and prams, but the crowd was much better than last year edition, there's sufficient space to run if really want to weave a little bit through the crowd. Only one hydration point at 3km marina barrage which was the U turn point, but i overheard young kids asking for water right after the run/walk started. Guess they could easily turn into MBS if GBTB if they really want to look for their own hydration.

    Osaka Marathon 2018 - 25th November 2018

    Stayed near castle last year as it was part of the race package, walked to start point on race day but personally I would not choose to stay there if i book the hotel on my own. Every single day I have to walk 30min or take one or two stations to Namba area and I remember walking to and fro that route at least 2-3 times a day so I rather book a hotel that's more centralised.

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    Did you try clicking and applying? I almost forgot about it, till few minutes before midnight of 6th Jan then went to the website. By the time I finished registering was 5 mins past midnight but I still managed to get the loyalty rate.

    Great Eastern Women's Run - 12th Nov 2017

    Agree, well organised despite the wet weather. A far cry from the other race yesterday (although I did not attend), glad that GE run maintained the good standard. Only gripe i have is the quality of the medal, I'm not that particular but they used to have much better ELM quality medal when Hivelocity was organising the race. This year, the design is nice but quality just seems quite cheapskate, even packaging is just a thin plastic bag. Oh well, cant ask for too much in a race. Everything smooth smooth good liao.. lolx..

    Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    This race seems so popular that they introduced 30km.. hmm.. If I'm not wrong they had Groupon discounts for quite a few editions but this year (2017) no more liao.

    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

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

    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?

    Osaka Marathon 2017 26 Nov 2017

    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?
