  1. 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    Yah, I was surprised that they have a package this year as their website is outdated.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?
  4. 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.
  5. 50 Hours Non Stop Run 2017 - 14 -16 Apr

    Seems quite rainy this weekend, hope its good for you guys doing the race.
  6. 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..
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. MSIG Singapore Action Asia 50 2017, 15 July 2017

    Hmm.. its also one day before ST run..
  10. 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.
  11. 2XU Compression Run 2 April 2017

    But better than cancel *crossing fingers*
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 2XU Compression Run 2 April 2017

    I remember last year was seriously super crowded and Income Eco run was much better in comparison. So I see this as a good move to ease the crowd and for those who got there late, probably will not get left behind too.
  15. Honestly, when 42race started their virtual races I was also skeptical. I felt that it is not considered real race experience. That was until I saw some acquaintances who are avid runners showing off their virtual race medals on Facebook, and they also earned their bragging rights for completing 100km, 200km in a month. I'm not one of those runners who can get out and run every other day so eventually i see virtual races as a motivation and challenge for myself to complete certain distance. As for the Liv3ly virtual race concept here, I find the cost too steep for a medal so i doubt I'll register, and usually i also avoid utilising those facial or personal care vouchers as I feel that its a big trap for people to hardsell their products and services. I've paid less than $10 for my past few virtual races so I guess that that is probably the maximum i'm willing to fork out for such races to get a nice medal, and provided the medal is of unique design and good quality.
