    I still remember last year, the segment before going up the highway was stuffy and humid. Air is better up there. I reckon as it is more open, it'll cool down faster as well. The faster runners will help us absorb the heat :P

    Haaa.... it was stuffy  cause the width of the route was narrower than when it's up the highway... I think just dun be too fast this time round to avoid the sun... haaaa

    Thanks. I saw many runners previously dump their disposable raincoats at the start. My attire for Tokyo back then was a compression top with one looser dri fit tee, long tights, shorts (loose type), and gloves. 

    Sometimes having disposable raincoat might not be bad thing in case of sudden strong gust of wind blowing through the starting pens...

    Thanks. I did the Tokyo Marathon in ‘14 and have been to Osaka twice. Nevertheless, always new stuff to discover and do in Japan.

    will start training and planning for this relatively cold marathon. When I did Tokyo, it was roughly 5-10 degrees with wind chill. Was snowing at one stretch as well. 

    For Osaka, will expect it to be same temperature. Does anyone know if decathalon has good running gear for cold weather?

    Thanks @beast...

    Tokyo marathon is colder than Osaka marathon as one is start of winter while the other is end of winter...

    I dun do races which are too cold before to the extent where I need to wear long tights or pants so cant comment on that..

    Lastly the runners in Osaka marathon is also huge( less than Tokyo but significant enough) thus it will take some time for you to stand in the cold while waiting for your pen to start moving towards the start line. So do dress and cover appropriately.

    this event has always been open to public (Non-Home TeamNS members). 
     

    I've run it at Sentosa and Changi Expo and I wil always miss the Changi Expo days. 

     

    Agree....where there is real 4 terrains to run in... really a race of it's kind... it's kinda lost now...

    Why, why, why.

     

    Every year since this race started in Singapore, either clash with prior appointment, another run or I am outstation. I am not destined to ever support this YRR :(

    There is always a next year... how about trying to prioritise this race for next year?

    An overseas run that is happening in Sept/Oct should already know you got the race slot or not bah....unless you got the slot but not sure you still want to go or not? 

    Anyway nobody is keeping tabs of whether you actually go for your overseas run or not lah..... except maybe Simon lol...

    Yup... there is a chance that i cant go due to work commitment... so see how how it goes...

    Thanks @beast and @trailblazer for tips. The direct flights are really ex so I might plan to redeem air miles. 

    I have been to Osaka twice in recent years and I think that if you live near the subway, the traveling to start/finish point should not be an issue. 

    Start time is 9am if I am not wrong so it is comfortable for traveling, similar to Tokyo Marathon which I did a few years ago. 

    Anyone else going for Osaka Marathon in Dec?

    For Japan races, there is a strict rule where u have to be in your starting pens early ( like 45mins-1hr before start)... And it's really strict as I seen before that people were denied entry just 1minute past that timing given...

    And also note that there are certain junctions leading to the start point where they will close off early as well and I have also seen runners being denied entry when it's like.... 1hr before starting time... So read thru the information to ensure u reached early and on time..


  9. Agree @trailblazer... there is no more 35km slope... however the few steep slopes from 0m to 20m between 28km to 33km seemed to be quite difficult too... and not forgetting that once reached around 42km mark still need to climb back up to Osaka castle ( cause i rem it's a bit of downslope coming down from start point last time)...
