    Batman Run Singapore - 21 Sep 2019 (Sat)

    It's probably part of series of runs being held all over the world to celebrate Batman's 80th Anniversary. So far, I can only find one other race in LA on the same date. >> https://dcbatmanrun.com/ So maybe more races will be announced later. I think it's probably a 5K race. Start Marina Barrage, either run towards MBS then U-turn or towards GBTB East then U-turn. Probably the latter route. Probably a fun race so dun expects timing or prize. The last Batman v Superman run in 2016 was $50. So hopefully it stays around the same price but won't be surprised if it goes up to $55 or $60. I would guess only DC/Batman fanboys/fangirls and those who deep pocket would join.

Hesitate or procrastinate and the fee will rise to $85/$100/$110 The fee is really testing my resolve to continue my SCSM streak. I have already decided to give up my CSC Run by the Bay streak becos of the high registration fee (which by the way cost $65 and was the fee charged for last year SCSM HM)

The loyalty rate this year for the 18.45km is $10 cheaper than the loyalty rate last year!
  5. I think if you finished a 50K or 100K, then the Finisher Tee design better be 'LOUD' However, when it becomes a walking advertisement for the sponsor, then I think it becomes a slap in the face for those who complete the distance. Let's do something about it. Ahh.. much better!

    STGR - Uglow Marathon 15th June 2019

    The separation is for walkers/runners and cyclist/PMD users. Nothing confusing about that right? But of cos, only about 50% of PCN users adhere to the demarcation.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    All of us here are different individuals here with all unique personalities, interest and motivations. Regardless of the reasons, I do not think we should belittle them just because you find it 'funny'. I can assure you that these 'funny' people who want better quality medals and finisher tee are just as passionate about running and joining races as you apparently are. Your motivations may be less 'funny' and that's commendable on your part. Surely to suggest that we go Carousel to purchase finisher tee or medals is the worst insult you can make to all of us here.

    It was an inadvertent mistake on my part. I have correct my original post. In any case, I dun think we should kid about things like this.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    I thot SDM was the brainchild of the founder of HiV? So I dun think they 'took over' from some other organiser right? But I could be wrong becos I only joined SDM 3 times. 2 HM and 1FM. My main reason for stopping this race is well documented in this forum. I still rem my SDM FM with fond memories even though I just managed to avoid the sweeper bus and completed just before the cut off time of 8hrs. Sure I may have been one of the last to cross the line but I dun feel like it was not a 'win' for me. I agree with kpp that those who run a FM deserved a quality ELM medal for their efforts. Something which SCSM (or SCMS) and SDM used to give. I only ran 3 FM but I'm glad all my FM medals are ELM medals.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    So overall Infinitius maiden FM organisation is a pass or fail? Seems like more negative than positive comments. Compared to HiV which is better?
  13. Website: http://www.compressportrun.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CompressportRunSG/ Categories: 5km/10km [Comments] Likely an evening run. No details on pricing at the moment but not likely to sign up anyway. There's a contest to win free ticket currently ongoing at the FB page. Those interested should check it out. You guys have 1 less person joining so your chance is already better!

    Compressport Run 2019 - 6 July (Sat)

    At least they return the money (or maybe I shouldn't speak too soon! ) and they still throw in sports towel, drawstring bag and discount codes. At least they are trying to do damage control. I'm sure there are some bros here who signed up for the Runners League who has not got the race fee refunded.

    Singapore Kindness Run 2019 - 3rd Aug (Sat)

    Why would a non-central location be ideal? Shouldn't a central location like Sports Hub be more ideal? OMG! I just realised that this race is on Sat and not Sun. For Sat, the first train is about 15 mins earlier than Sun so that will provide some buffer (not much) to reach the race site. Decathalon is having a 7K race the next day at its Stadium outlet. More info for those who may be interested https://www.decathlon.sg/module/decarace/decathlonRace>>

    Singapore Kindness Run 2019 - 3rd Aug (Sat)

    Actually, you are not wrong but it will be extremely tight depending on where you stay and how long it will take for you to reach Stadium MRT. I think those staying Woodlands, Punggol, Boon Lay will find it challenging to reach there before 7am even if you take the first train. Also, you need to factor in any late opening on Sunday that may take place due to extended MRT engineering works. The schedule for Aug is not out yet, so you may be hit with that. In any case, this is not a 'die die must run one of my streak' race. So probably still won't sign up.

    Singapore Kindness Run 2019 - 3rd Aug (Sat)

    Not for 2017 because I took a cab to the race site. One thing good is that the race is late enough that you can take the cab from 6am and avoid the midnight surcharge. I dun think there was shuttle bus for 2018 but I was not paying attention. The scale of the race is too small for the provision of shuttle bus. So 95% surely no shuttle bus for this year race as well. If there is, I will probably sign up.

    Singapore Kindness Run 2019 - 3rd Aug (Sat)

    Only those who run last year considered 'loyal. If you join the race in 2017 (like me) but did not last year, then you are not considered loyal In any case, loyalty is a 2-way street. If the organiser does not want to recognise me as a loyal runner, then it's an easy decision for me not to sign up. Moreover, with a 7am flag off, you will also need to spend extra $$ to cab/grab to Sports Hub adding to the cost. So yes I did consider but not willing to spend the extra $5

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    I am a slow runner. When I ran my SDM FM, I really did finish around sunrise. I have an idea for SDM to spice things up. How about adopting a reverse grid system? In some motorsports, to spice things up, the fastest qualifiers are put at the back. So those who think they can finish the FM in 5 hrs, can start at 2am and finish ard 7am. Those who can finish is 4h can start at 3am etc. I know it's a wild idea and no one would probably adopt it but .. this is one way to spice things up.
  22. If you are talking about the different Pen, I dun recall having to provide any proof of race timing. So it was just self-declared. If they are really taking the steps to ask for proof, then this is really a step in the right direction. But of cos, I hope you guys realised that all these measures are just adding to the cost of running the whole show. Even if the task can be automated to some extent, someone will still need to verify the information in some form or another.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    Sundown Marathon is a 'brand' and after spending all the money buying over the brand, F4U Pte Ltd (BTW this is one of the worst name you can name your company ) would be nutz to scrap it just because SCSM becomes an evening race. In any case, there is no overlap. SCSM starts 6pm. SDM starts close to midnight. I dun think the experience will be the same so I see no reasons why SDM cannot continue to attract participants.
  24. One more thing, the 10% discount for past participant has been removed this year. So double whammy. Fee increase and no discount. So factoring in the 8% active fee, HM fee for Super Early Bird is $81. That's nearly $18 what I paid last year or a whopping 28% increase.
  25. Flag off time, registration link, registration fee and race pack collection details updated on the 1st post. Details on runner's entitlements has not been released.
