  1. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    Most of Pink Apple organised races does not issue e-cert.
  2. I managed to find myself a cozy spot to sit somewhere in the middle of the tent.
  3. Actually, I had done it once. But only because the race was postponed and subsequently canceled. That was for Run350 2014. So while waiting for a decision to be made, we all took shelters under the giant tentage as it was raining heavily. And I just took a quick nap while waiting for the 10K to flag off.
  4. Actually just realise that the latest bus is 0300. So not that much different. Still will be there quite early no matter what. Just that I dun really have to rush and can relax and take my time with the pre-race routine.
  5. I'm not running the FM. So even if I start in the last pen at 0520 for the HM, it's still relatively comfortable for me.
  6. Frankly, I think this is a good move. This will definitely space out the runners so that the route doesn't get too over-crowded. Those who dun mind flagging off in the later pens can actually plan accordingly to arrive a little later. One hr after flag off is still not too late. I will probably opt to start in one of the later pens. By the way, the e-guide is out >> https://singaporemarathon.com/wp-content/uploads/SCSM2017_Runners_Info_Guide.pdf
  7. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    If I'm not mistaken, the rating given was for the individual events. All the events are probably tabulated and average out for the organisers of the events. eg. XE for runners league, Meiji run, YOLO etc. Pink Apple for 2XU, Newton Challenge.
  8. Runner's League - 10 Jun, 26 Aug, 07 Oct, 19 Nov

    I mentioned way back on Oct 26 that I had received my refund for the canceled 3rd Leg. I was one of those who signed up for the full package. I signed up using my credit card and the refund was credited back to the same credit card account. Those waiting for the refund should check your credit card statement for Nov carefully or via your Internet Banking. It was reflected on my credit card statement on 20 Oct as 'SPACEBIB-MARKETPLACE' with a $45 cr. (Paid $180 for 4 legs so it was $45) So It is not correct to assert that no one has received refund because I have. So let's get our facts right and not accused XE of being something that they are not. I dun think they are a fraud. I think they are just incompetent. Hmm.. reminds me of a certain town council but let's not there! By the way, is it confirmed that the race pack collection is canceled? Has anyone made their way to Marina Square today to find out? OK confirmed RPC canceled. Just saw this posted by someone on FB.
  9. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Yeah. It is still not a reflective but at least XE is where it really should be.
  10. Mizuno Wave Run 2017 - 26 Nov (Sun)

    Here the race route for the race. Half the route is probably familiar to regular runners. The other half is quite interesting but not sure how wide the running path is. Should be quite narrow, right?
  11. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Check out the latest ranking of event organisers from JRL. This is probably a closer reflection of the relative ranking
  12. Great Eastern Women's Run - 12th Nov 2017

    If it's any consolation, even if it was HiVelocity organising, they stopped issuing ELM medals. The funny thing is that Infinitius does issue ELM medals (ST Run) so not sure why for this race, they are not issuing. Probably cost.
  13. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Dun worry. You can count on me to highlight this to all fellow runners here.
  14. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    When XE screwed up Meiji Run, Dreamworks Run and Runners League Run, there wasn't much publicity probably due to the smaller number of runners. But when they screwed up YOLO Run 2017, due to the numbers of runners, it's generating a lot of negative publicity - even making it on ChannelNewsAsia and Straits Times. ChannelNewsAsia: YOLO Run organisers apologise after criticism over delays, unclear race routes Straits Times: Athletics: Yolo run organisers apologise for 'unpleasant experience' Frankly, I hope this will sound the death knell of XE and I says good gracious to it. No one would mourn its passing. I'm sure.
  15. Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that maybe XE was 'set up' by other 'not so good' race organisers to deflect their own short-comings. Because after all the horrendous shortcomings from XE, it's natural to come to the conclusion 'any race other than XE looks OK'
