  1. There might be more supporters (as well as complainers) when the event is held in the late afternoon/evening next year
  2. Super excited to read that 23 cities have signed up to go zero waste which also means reduce or ban single-use and non-recyclable plastics and other materials. https://www.mrw.co.uk/latest/london-signs-zero-waste-pledge/10034647.article Currently working with Nice marathon forming a 3 year plan to go cupless. So if you want to do this event and want a cup, better do it soon
  3. Dunno - 100km on trail vs 100km on road. Personally prefer trail or a mix up with more trail than road.

    Agree @wonderfulblevic @AdiZero - correct - everyone does express their views and their opinions of others opinions. Personally I could have expressed my disagreement to your opinion better - so apologies 🤝

    Agree - thank you @Ender - much more eloquently stated and as @okw says with such a low price would expect the focus to be on good crowd control, flag-off timeliness, sufficient on-route hydration and safety. Anything else would be a bonus, even the goodie bag would be a bonus. BYOR cup / bottle / hydration pack and enjoy the run amongst a group of people who want to also enjoy the run

    Bro - sounds like you B****ing for the sake of it. It is clearly stated as a no frills event with a low price however there will be clear support to ensure runners have hydration and some food. The organisers have run in events so they would be pretty blur if they screwed around with providing hydration. It's also in ECP. So there are regular bathrooms. There was once a story of an army guy who had his maid carry his bag for him.... :p

    Cheltenham Challenge

    Cheltenham Challenge is a multi-terrain event with 3 categories: 5K, 10K and 21km http://www.cheltenhamchallenge.org.uk/ This year Cheltenham Challenge developed a cupless event with zero single use bottles used. There were some grumblings from "serious athletes" from "serious clubs". Whilst there would definitely be a big reduction in waste generated, what about an athlete's personal best time? Can they carry their bottle and PB? All I can say is that athletes that continue to suggest that carrying a bottle will affect their times need to reflect on their own mental obstacles because the times are talking.... And events that inisist on continuing with the old fashion waste generating methods need to push the caveman out.... https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2018/06/21/cheltenham-challenge-boldy-going-where-non-ultra-running-events-are-scared-to-go/

    Welcome to sgunners. To help you get into fitness, try joining a running group. Or you can do a regular free 5K with a group of people every Saturday at 07:30 at Parkrun. See which one is your local here http://www.parkrun.sg/events/ And register at the one closest to you or that you want to make a regular. You will be sent a barcode to print and use. You can use this same barcode around the world to clock your run and get a history of the runs you have completed. http://www.parkrun.com/countries/ Happy running

    The Goodbye SGRunners forum page thread

    Oh wow - yah this is a shame it couldn't be sponsored by the Sports Council or something as it has encouraged many runners to get out there and be fit. Thank you to @thelonelyrunner for his support at run events for sgrunners and putting this together in the first place 🤗
  14. In case anyone is interested in how the Green Initiatives went at Sundown Marathon: https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2018/05/28/sundown-marathon-on-the-road-to-zero-waste-70th-marathon/ Am dreaming of the day that I see no trash in any running events in Singapore :D Was interesting that everyone we got to sign & pledge to put their waste in the bin during the run supported penalising runners who simply dropped or tossed their trash outside of bins (we got approximately 1000 signatures from the night +the couple of hours at registration).
  15. oh yah David. Is there a David in the house?
