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

    Salah.. should be 20 Oct. 😜 Side note: OMG> How come the emoji for the forum has changed. 😰 OK. Only addition. Old one still available including my favourite
  2. Website: https://www.cscrunbythebay.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CSCRun/ Registration: LINK HERE Date: 20 Oct 2018 (Sat) Flag off Time: 5.15pm (HM), 6.30pm (12.8 km) 7.30pm (6 km) Venue: Garden by Bay, East Introducing age-group ranking to the Singapore running scene NEW this year: runners will be ranked in their 10-year age category bracket, with trophies awarded to the top-3 placers. Runners of every age can now make it to the podium and be recognised for their outstanding performance. Registration Fee Race Route Race Pack Collection Date: 12-13 Oct (Fri-Sat) Time: TBA Venue: TBA [COMMENT] Yet another race that has made the switch for a morning to a sunset race. More distressingly, the price for the 21K has jumped from $53 (early bird) last yr to $62 this yr or a whopping 17% increase! Granted, you get a running backpack and drink bottle, but frankly, I rather not have those and has the price remain unchanged. This race has always had a 'no frills' feel to it and was always one of the cheapest HM on the race calendar. This yr, there is a certain sheen to everything from the website, the merchandise, social media etc It's as if a professional outfit has come in and gave it a makeover. Of cos, there's nothing wrong with improvement but I wish these improvements need not have come with such a hefty price increase. Still, this is one of my streak races so I'm likely to sign up despite the price increase. Neither HiVelocity or Pink Apple is organising the race this yr. Instead, Metasport will be handling the race logistics. They are not newbies and had organised the metasprint series and some bi/triathlon. Though I had never participated in any of the events they organised, they seem fairly competent and I had not really come across many negative comments about their events. Maybe those who had joined their events can feedback.

    PCCW Global Charity Run 2018 - 27 Jun (Wed)

    Just to check with those who had registered. Assuming, you pay the 'suggested' minimum amount, were you charged $30 or $35? I know the website says $35 (by Apr 30) but when I registered on 20 Apr, I was only charged $30. Unconvinced, I did a 'mock' registration recently and indeed the charge was $35. So anyone else paid only $30 for the race?

    Race Against Cancer 2018 - 22 Jul (Sun)

    Tricky question to answer. If Pink Apple is managing the race logistics, then I think 90% likely to be an ELM medal race. Problem is Pink Apple is organising the OXFITT Run Till Dark on the evening before the race. So not sure if they are involved in this race. Will wait for more details before deciding.

    Yellow Ribbon Prison Run 2018

    *sigh* As expected, clash with RunNUS and B2B (evening-to-morning) race with POSB Run for Kids. 95% Double Confirm Chop Stamp! The Yellow Ribbon Project has shown 0% interest and inclination to extend the race distance despite numerous request over the years.

    Star Wars Run 2018 - 5 May (Sat)

    I think all cheong for the Cosbaby cushion from Hot Toys. First 500 to turn up get one.
  9. That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Regardless of what time the FM starts, there will always be faster runners that finish the race before public transport starts. So I doubt this factor into HiV decision on the respective flag off time. The most logical thing I can think of is route congestion. The HM and FM probably shared much of the same route initially. And since 10K and HM usually attract more runners than FM, it makes sense to clear the bulk of the runners first before the FM flags off.

    PCCW Global Charity Run 2018 - 27 Jun (Wed)

    Lai Lai.. Registration opens liao.. Beneficiary this yr is Make-A-Wish Singapore. Pink Apple will be the event organiser so highly likely it will remain an ELM medal race.
  11. I think those of you who has not received the link may have just overlooked it. Or it got junked by yr email software/site. The email was sent out on 11 Apr 10:03 am and looks something like this. Further down, there is this: To thank you for your loyalty, we would like to extend a 10% discount on the Super Early Bird rate* - just for you! Click on your unique link below and input the coupon code "2017RUNNERSEB18" to register. And then a link to register. So go back and check. And if you still dun receive, I guess you can check with Ironman. Of cos, if you dun intend to register, then dun bother.
  12. Won't lah. As per previous years, there will be shuttle bus to bring runners home after the race. And as per Hi-V practice in recent yrs, they have partner with Share Transport to provide shuttle bus services. http://www.sundownmarathon.com/2018/singapore/transportation-options/

This may eliminate potential clash with other races on Sunday. But it may create potential b2b races with other races happening the next day like RunNUS. So pending greater clarity on what other races may popped up on 9 Sep, will KIV for now.
