  1. 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.
  2. 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 ).
  3. Thanks a lot guys. The Twilight site's been cranky of late; sometimes its ok, sometimes not.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Regardless of the numbers, Running Guild will always strive towards giving our participants a great experience at our events :)))
  7. Registration closes tmr night. Mai tu liao !!!!
  8. Early Bird closes tonight in 2.5 hrs time. Lai lai lai, dont be shy, come & go crazeeeeee with us.
  9. Reverse Route run is tonight (CP 8 Bedok Reservoir - MR). Do drop by at 10km if anyone's keen to familiarize themselves with the route in the night. Meeting Point will be the shelter across Car Park B / Toilet.
  10. Beyond just manpower & logistics issues, the medical coverage is an equally big challenge on its own. Monetary cost aside (yes its very expensive / $$$ per hr), where & when to deploy are the 2 biggest headaches because at least 40% of the race route (100 miles) is inaccessible to the ambulance. We are rather blessed to have this current ambulance team with us for all our events (not just Craze) since the first Craze in 2012. Prior to that, our events were covered by another ambulance company & they wanted to charge double of what the current team is charging. Its rather crazy as that would bring up the registration fees significantly. Above our ambulances, there are mobile medics covering the long ulu stretches (i.e., Seletar North Link to CP5) in the day & night while we will usually walk the whole route with the medical team about 2-3 weeks prior to the event to identify potential parking spots (in case there are changes from the previous year) & evacuation points along stretches where the ambulance cant enter (+ how to maneuver the stretcher through such areas). There's also the headache of trying to identify possible places where the runners will deviate from the main race course to grab a bite [i.e., in the old route (2013-14), 100-milers tend to turn into Changi Village Market to eat] & yes, in 2013, there was a medical emergency of a runner having a seizure after his meal at Changi Village. Fun Fact 1: While runners use the "check in" time to know their running pace, I (the medical / safety IC) actually mine the data to calculate the arrival time range at each CP for the bulk of the participants. The ambulance will then be stationed at the CPs based on the time range to ensure the fastest response time for medical emergencies. Hence, year after year, new data will be added to the old so that I can sharpen the accuracy of the time range for each CP, bringing down the ambulance response time. Even a 30-sec reduction can be critical. Fun Fact 2: Both our ambulances & mobile medics on bikes are equipped with an AED each.
  11. We hope everyone enjoyed their experience at this year's Craze Ultra. Our sincere apology should service fall short of anyone's expectation at the CPS as manpower was very tight this year due to 1) clash of 4-5 other running events on the same weekend & 2) trolls who signed up but did not turn up.
