  1. While attempting 161-km in 32 hrs does not sound so hard in theory (about 5km/hr pace), its totally diff in reality and many learned this the hard way in the first 2 editions of Craze Ultra when the number of finishers (100 miles category) was <25% of those who started. 8 months to prep for a 100-km will be sufficient though. Do consider the 100km first bah. The 100km can be used to qualify to ballot for the Western States 100 miles race too as long as you finish it within 22 hrs (which is still a reasonable goal).

  9. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    Here's an insight into what happens behind the scenes of Craze Ultra to answer the above questions: 1. There's no much diff in the logistics support (water / food @ CPs) with or without relay runners as we always over-project by a certain (safe) amount for the consumables. The CP leaders will also update us every few hours on the supplies and from there we will decide whether to buy new stuff to stock up that CP or to shift supplies from 1 CP to the other. In all our editions of Craze, you don't see us running out of the fundamental items (water, isotonic, bananas, watermelons), do you? 2. No diff to volunteer deployment hours either since the relay runners are still competing within the same time frame as the rest. The CPs still open & close at the same time with or without the relay runners. 3. 2nd & 3rd runner onwards waiting for long hours - yes, this is usually true as the runners tend to under-estimate their arrival time & will have a chain effect on their teammates' waiting time. BUT, to eliminate this issue, we outsourced the timing process to one that featured live updates and team members were able to gauge with a good degree of accuracy roughly what time to expect their previous runner to arrive at the CP. This actually significantly reduced the waiting time. We did pay a heavy price (yes, live updates are not cheap) for the service and it continues to blunt our revenue from the event. 4. So why did we stop the relay category? Because of people cheating the system. For example, you have a team of 6 runners paying relay price for 100 miles but ended up instead of 1 runner from 1 CP to the other, you can have the whole team running together & attempting to finish the whole 100 miles together.
  10. Just a heads up, registration for Twilight Ultra Challenge (23-24 Sep) will close this Sunday (20/08). This is also the last event for you to utilize to qualify for the Ultra-maniac Award 2017. To find out more about the award, click HERE. To register for the Twilight Ultra, click HERE.
  11. We have seen the feedbacks on the instant noodles and thus we will be introducing a new flavor and a new brand of noodles at CP5 (coz everything that's salty tastes nice after 50km ).
  12. Thanks a lot guys. The Twilight site's been cranky of late; sometimes its ok, sometimes not.
  13. Would like a little help from you guys. Not related to Craze but can you all try to see if you can access Twilight Ultra's website? Just copy and paste the 2 links below. Thanks a million. www.twilightultrachallenge.com www.twilightultrachallenge.com/Registration.php
  14. Nuts to be, please take note of some changes to the route & locations of the CPS: 1. CP1 will be shifted 1.5km further to the entrance of Ulu Sembawang Park. There's no change in the route to get to this CP. 2. There's a route diversion along Simpang Kiri Park connector after CP3 (before Yishun Ave 2). 3. CP7 will be shifted about 200m away from its previous location. Please view our FB page for the specific changes/description HERE. For those looking to clock another long run along the race route, there will be a night session from MR to CP4 (37km) or CP5 (51km). Gather at MR Amenities Centre at 11pm.
  15. Regardless of the numbers, Running Guild will always strive towards giving our participants a great experience at our events :)))
