    Oxfitt Run 7th July 2019

    Not much of precedence. Last yr was the 1st edition and it was an evening run. Some Pink Apple organied run do have shuttle buses eg. 2XU, Newton Run but many other also dun have eg. Race Against Cancer.

    Oxfitt Run 7th July 2019

    Pink Apple damn jialat leh. From too big to too small I agree that the size is a bit small. I guess those with big tummy (like me) either choose the biggest size and hope it fits or maybe choose a size to give/sell to someone else or just dun sign up for this race. One thing good about Pink Apple race. You can sign up male category and opt to receive the female tights.

    2XU Compression Run 2019 - 07 Apr (Sun)

    Roughly 2 weeks to race day and no word still on Shuttle bus services. Could it be that there will be no paid shuttle bus services this year? Many people are asking on FB but so far radio silence from Pink Apple. Given the expected crowd size from previous years, I cannot imagine if everyone tries to make their way to race site via private transport, Grab or taxi. The roads leading to F1 pit building will be badly jam. [Update] Just as I posted the above, I went to the site and realise that shuttle bus ticket is now available!

    Oxfitt Run 7th July 2019

    Should be cm bah. Dun make sense to be inches but better to write in and confirm with them. Now let's just see if they bother to reply. Pink Apple customer service is getting worse. Most queries on FB goes unanswered. If you are lucky, you will get a reply if you email them. They used to be quite responsive. Maybe their success is getting a bit to their head. The thing with Pink Apple is that they are very fond of just using an existing template for all their race site info. This is the first time (I think) they are offering shorts as race entitlement so no one bothers to QC when they put up the info. I dun understand why they dun just list 2 sizing tables. One for the singlet (in inches as per template) and another for the shorts.

    Oxfitt Run 7th July 2019

    @mover I take it that you are making a comment and not a quote. Becos I certainly did not say the things about providing water points that you 'quote' me on. Though it probably goes without saying that a BYOB race does not mean BYOW too. Even trail races will also have designated water points to fill up your hydration bottle/packs.

    Meiji Run 2019 - 29 Jun (Sat)

    Website: https://meijirun.sg/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/meijirunsg Registration: https://app.starpodium.co/events/meiji-run2019-17 Date: 29 June 2019 (Saturday) Time: 2pm – 8pm Venue: Sentosa (Palawan Green) Race Registration Fee Race Pack Collection Date: 22 & 23 June 2019 Time: 11am – 7pm Venue: Velocity @ Novena Main Atrium [Comment] An unforgettable race in 2017 for all the wrong reasons. One of the races handled by the notorious Xchange Events. Click here if you need a refresher on what went down. I'm not sure who is handling the logistics this year but even disregarding that, the race fee for a 10K is not cheap. And worse, the Meiji goodies finisher hamper that was given out in the last run is missing this year. So probably a skip, pending more information. There's also a $5 increase in the race fee. One more thing, not exactly sure when the flag off for the race but the run is stated as starting from 2pm and a cut off for the 10K at 5pm. So I'm guessing probably 3pm. That is a crazy time to start! Just for comparison, this was the runner's entitlement for the last race in 2017
  12. From the HomeTeamNS Real Run Facebook page It's a Sat so likely a evening run.

    Oxfitt Run 7th July 2019

    *sigh* Another BYOB race. Looks like next time all Pink Apple races will be BYOB. The fee looks really reasonable considering the race entitlements but the BYOB is really a turn-off. Nmind. Still got time to think it over.

    Bro you ran short last yr izzit? There was only 1 race category last yr - 15K. Hopefully Pink Apple will remain the race organiser. The race calender this yr very sparse. So likely to join.

    No lah. I think u dun join this run enough. This race also has Brooks, Newton, CompressSports and Mizuno as apparel sponsor. But you are correct because the cutting of the above are more or less the same (not like UA or 2XU) so I concur with your observation.

But OMG what a horrible singlet design. $60 for a 12K race is very expensive though so it's probably only worth joining if you are planning on staying back for a visit to the zoo and safari river park after the run. DAMN. The race has morphed into a BYOB race but at least a reusable bottle is given in the race pack.

    [Medal Hunters United] List of ELM Medal Races

    2019 1st ELM Medal Race: Safari Zoo Run [Placeholder for pictures]
  24. I created this thread to be the definitive list of races that issued ELM Medals. For runners who collect running medals (collectively members of the Medal Hunters United) nothing comes close to the quality, finishing and workmanship of an ELM medal. So its highly sought after and increasingly more races has started issuing them. Most of HiVelocity events issues ELM medals, along with the yearly Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. Other races like Jurong Lake Run (despite being a CSC organised run) has been issuing ELM medals since its inaugural race in 2011. Pink Apple has issued a few ELM medals in previous years but it was in 2014 that it has started to issue more ELMs medal for its events. In 2015, Pink Apple is the leading race organiser that is issuing ELM medals on a consistent basis. On the other hand even the marque HiVelocity event, Sundown Marathon stopped issuing ELM medals. For avoidance of doubt, only medals with the stamped 'ELM' will be regarded as an ELM medal in this thread. Medal with 'ELM' like quality and finishing but without the 'ELM' stamp (eg. AHM 2013 medals) will not be included in this list.

    Marina Run 2019 - 23 Feb (Sat)

    Proof positive that a lot of people really have short term memories when it comes to races. The same problem crop up every year - shuttle bus, bag deposit, route management, hydration etc Yet thousands continue to sign up. So either they are new to the game, really dun follows this forum or dun really care about the problems. That's how a sub-par mediocre race organiser like Epic-ESR can continue organising this race despite the myriad of issues every year. And it seem this race alone is enough to fund the company operations for the entire year cos they dun seem to organise any other races for the rest of the year.
