  1. Did u guys realised that the same group of foreign runners are going around to different local events to wipe up all the cash prizes ? I managed to speak to one of them...in fact they don't go back to their countries...they travel around south east countries with their manager, stay at budget hotel...this week in Singapore, next week Malaysia, Thailand then Indonesia etc...you will see them in NTuc, 2xu run. They are using running as a source of income for their living...not sure is it right ? They know that winning champions are easily for them. ASEAN runners are no match for them. The top guns go for standard chartered, boston...the lower class go for local events. Do we really need them to raise our running standard? Local runners are complaining with them around, they got no chance to win.. Countries like Thailand, Malaysia are beginning to ban them, or not to give cash as rewards.... Your comments...
  2. Looks like many runners are banging tables to get the tee upsize... the next run ntuc 350 will also be on the chopping board cos they also change the tee to the same sponser Compxxxxx. All sizes by the same manufacturer are 1 size smaller. Now..i am missing the sponser Brooks...their size xxl always fit me. Some of my friends worn the tee for a run today...it is not breathable...the sweat was found trapping inside the body... Anyone had tried it ?
  3. based on the chart..the size xxl should be 23 inch across chest...but when i measured it is only 22 inch...why short change us.
  4. These are my comments: Instead of doing a good job for doing a running event, the organizer is seem more interested to spend money to create a wayang carnival. Lacking of water, isotonic water (The whole event, I only drank 1 cup of isotonic water), Messy bag deposit. The running route from Marina bay to East coast park, I think National Park has never approve it at all, if u look carefully at the exit from Marina, it was blocked due to construction. The organizer just put the blame on Chingay... Under size singlet and finisher tee only XL, .I usually wear size XXL. I have written to them before the rack pack collection, the organizer do not even bother to reply. In conclusion,my take is the hat is too big for the organizer to wear. KPI please change the event company, you are making the same mistakes just like the one to run the Ultra Biathlon.
  5. U never believe how damp cheap an adidas finisher/event tee was sold after the marathon in NZ... Only NZ $10.... https://www.aucklandmarathon.co.nz/store/
  6. WOW...it is a good business opportunity to ask all the buibui and slow runners to sign up with Fatbird to train them...after one year confirm no short cut...hee hee Also will get 2 finisher tees, 1 from Scms, 1 from Fatbird. Ps» i also want to cut down my timing from 6:30h to 5:30h....how?
  7. One of the ways to stop cheaters... No more issuing finisher tee. You need to pay for it with no DNF or DQtiming only after 3 days at the retail shop at discount price. Keep FM registeration fee low, like $50. Just like Fubon marathon...only event singlet. HM signed up gone before FM. Cut off time 5。5hrs for Fm. No medals, no timing recorded after that...
  8. Did anyone do a search to find out the slowest timing to finish the marathon at each cat?
  9. Perhaps also to put DNF in the timing for those above 8 hours....
  10. For my split time, it includes 20km 21.1km and 25km so probably he skipped the U turn point in ECP? Can also see that his ranking went up a lot cos he turned back early.. haha judging on the runner's pace and time of average 1hr per 5km,no way he can get such net time especially running 35 km in less than 3hr 10 mins.... well its his/her own race, so be it. So long that this guy is not among the TOP 10 local runners...no winning money involved... Nobody will bother...

  11. So what is the point of this type of cheating? I know that some of the Malaysian runners cheat in big event like KL and Penang marathon, so that they can win big money and gain places in the bigger races like NY or Boston....
  12. Since so many people are reading this forum...just side track a bit... Anyone got lobang for guesthouse dorm bed near Taipei City hall... I will be doing the Fubon marathon in 2 weeks time...do pm me.
  13. The whole event is run by sub contracting... SG Sports => Spectrum Worldwides => Different events companies => Different SMEs companies To save cost and generate more incomes, sub contracting may be given to lowest quotation, new startups. So What do u think? Good no cheap...Cheap no good. Just my takes
