    No e-cert this year? :huh:

    The race getting bigger every year but the result presentation  getting worse. :thumbsdown: 

    Either the field or gender ranking is missing. Not sure what Net/Gun rank refers to but should be gender. 

    Agree that should be gender as I rem there are total of 4000 runners for 18.45km... but my ranking is based on total of 3300+ runners... so little female runners only?

    Nice review. Just feedback on distance accuracy, you probably wont get better accuracy using gps.

    Was going through strava flyby and look how consistently messy the gps is in the marina boulevard area.




    Thanks @gouflook..  will continue to write more race reviews in future...

    First of all. Kudos for getting the race review out so fast! :goodjob:

    This is outrageous! How can you not know their name? :fish:

    In fact, the lovely Kelly Latimer is the regular MC for this race. I think she has been doing it for many years now. (I need to go back and check my personal collection though). Her usual partner is Ross. 


    I  don't know who the other MC is but apparently, it is her sister.

    Since you did not use the baggage deposit service, let me add on. As you can expect from a 'govt' linked company, they take their security seriously (the other races which also take security seriously are unsurprising AHM and SCSM). So before you are even allowed into the OCBC Arena (the same place for race pack collection) to deposit your bag, you are subject to a bag check. This inevitably resulted in a long queue (at least 50 people) waiting to get in. 

    Thankfully, the security screen was relatively quick but the line to deposit the bag is another 20-30 deep. This reminds me of Race Pack Collection all over again. Queue to get in, queue again to collect your pack.  :growl:The whole process took about 10-15 mins. 

    Got lah! The massage was in OCBC arena together with the baggage. The MC mentioned it at least twice at the Start Pen. I guess you were not paying attention. It is also in the race guide but I guess you probably never bother to read it too.  :fish:

    I'm pretty sure you got the medal front and back incorrectly. The front of the medal is the one with the word. The back is the one with the figure. Pro tip: the ELM medal mark is usually etched on the back of the medal. 

    I can confidently confirm that there will be a 8th race next year as not only will it be Straits Times 175th Anniversary, they have already announced the designs for next year race medal. 

    So will be back next year? This is one of my streak races so barring any unforeseen circumstances, I should be joining. 

    Thanks bro @lonewolffor the feedback... I really didn't know her name so its Kelly Latima... ok got it...

    I totally miss out on the massage!! Oh no... last year I also missed it out... nvm there is always a next year ... 

    Oppsss on the medal front and back... but it's ok la... 1st mistake after so many race reviews... haaa

    How do we prevent hitting the wall apart from training and conditioning? Would consuming energy gel every 10 km helps?

    Actually consuming energy gels does not prevent one from hitting the wall .. there are other factors which other runners have shared here. The legs, mind and stomach ( gels purpose) need to be aligned in order to run a FM without any issues.

    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
