    Lunar (Pig) Run 2019 - 17 Feb (Sun)

    Regardless of the symbolism behind the numbers in the distance, I agree with Beast that it's a gimmick. Because there's no way the distance can be that accurate. This year's distance based on my manual plot was 8.04km or 140m short. I'm sure there would be many others who run a bit longer or shorter. Despite its weird distance, I joined because it's cheap and starts late enough for me to use public transport to get to race site without spending more money on taxis. The distance is also long enough to make the effort and I will just benchmark my performance with the rest of my 8K races. The only downside is that RPC will be at Tampines Hub which is a little far.

    81.8% the route would be the same as this year race route. This year race even though was more expensive was actually better value with singlet + event T + Medal + PAssion Card 5% discount. Next yr, no singlet and no PAssion Card discount but still cheap so cannot really complain.
  4. Registration: http://bit.ly/2RQARqJ Date: 17 Feb 2019 (Sun) Time: 7am Venue: Punggol Waterway Distance: 8.18km, 3.18km Fee: $15 (8.18k) $10 (3.18km) Another no-frills, no bag deposit, neighourhood run organised by the experienced Tampines Central CSC. I missed 2017 edition but ran in the 2018 edition. I will probably join again next year to make this my newest streak runs. This race clashed with the Run for Hope.

    Official rules: You can complete the race/challenge in a single time or in a combination of multiple times during the qualifying period as indicated in the criteria for each category That's one of the attractions of online events. You are usually allowed a period of time to clock up the required distance to get the medals.

    Fair enough. Not all info is available when I start a new race topic. I will usually update the 1st post when the information is available. In this case, the info was probably added sometime later. So it's understandable if fellow forum members overlooked it. @beast I see where you are coming from but there must be some reasonableness to what is charged or not charged as 'extra'. The things that you mentioned like toilets and medical services would be not reasonable to charge on a per use basis. Just like shuttle buses to the race site are chargeable but bridging shuttle buses are not.

    I guess I have confirmation now that almost no one bothers to read the info I posted on the 1st post. The $5 deposit bag fee is something that I had highlighted quite early from the FAQ and posted in the 1st post. And while it is uncommon, this is definitely not the first race to do so. I rem the now-retired Jurong Lake Run also charged baggage deposit fee. But that was for $1 IIRC. $5 is kind of hefty. I have a contrarian view of the baggage deposit fee though I used it for every race that I joined. With most races, the baggage deposit fee is included regardless of whether you use the service or not. So those who do not use the service is actually cross-subsidising those who do use the service. If charging for bag deposits help to keep race fee down, then it should be OK. Unfortunately, most participants would not look at it this way but see the baggage deposit as an additional charge collected by the race organiser.

    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    Already included you in the 'skipping' list U dun deserves that 2nd chance at Yellow Ribbon next year. Someone who is genuinely repentant will not vow to cut here or there in public

    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    I'm going to call it now that despite many sgrunners intending to skip this race, I'm still expecting a huge turnout for this race. This race has always been super popular because of the 2XU brand. And the quality of the singlet and finisher Tees is definitely better than CS, NB, Mizuno, Adidas and Brooks. This race is one of the 四大天王 of sg running scene together with SAFRA SBR, Sundown and SCSM. Despite the high price, it will probably remain so. I think we have discussed on the everlasting enigma of this race. Every year, both this race and Income Eco Race (fka Run350) take place at about the same time in April. Despite a significantly cheaper fee, Income Eco Run always attracts a smaller turnout. Why? We never figured it out. My guess is that the race is attracting a lot of occasional and recreational racers - those that joined only a handful of events a year. Hmm.. maybe I should start a running tally on the 1st post on those who have declared their intention to run or not run this race. That may be fun

    CSC Run by the Bay 2018 - 20 Oct (Sat)

    'can of 100Plus isotonic drink'? I guess semi-celebrity blogger get different isotonic. Minions like us only get the H-TWO-O Of cos, we should not expect a blog post to be a professionally written polished piece of journalism. However, I agree that some of the basic grammatical error is quite jarring and it certainly an area for improvement.
