  1. Wanted saf pixel no 4

  2. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    My GPS tracked 21.4 km for the 21km race.
  3. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    Yes. Its almost the same route as SG Marathon. Then again, there are medal hunters.
  4. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    Surprisingly uncongested except for the tail end.
  5. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    There aren't that many runners..so there was sufficient water to go around with no crowds. Pocari or plain water.
  6. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    I took part in the 21km race. The rain turned into a slight drizzle just before the race. Also, I think it weeded out a fair bit of people cos when I started at Wave 2, there was hardly any crowd. Good thing about this is that there are hardly any congestions or choke points. And its good to run in the cool weather.
  7. Started in the 2nd wave. Good is good as there are no up or down slopes. But the etiquette of the runners was really bad. In small paths, there are so many hoggers left, right and center. It's almost impossible to overtake.
  8. Oh, they mail to participants residing in Taiwan.
  9. If you join a race in Taiwan, they mail the bib and vest to you. Whats wrong with that ? And why cant Singapore organisers do this? Saves everybody's time.
  10. I am here now to collect the race pack. How can they fail and mess up so badly ? Trying to do to many fanciful things. Some times, keeping it simple is the best.
  11. Sundown Marathon Taipei

    I took part in the inaugural Sundown Marathon 2 days ago. I was surprised by the low turn out. The 21 km race started at 2300 hrs and it was run round Dajia Riverside Park. It was windy, drizzling and cold at the start point but once I got warmed up, the race is pretty enjoyable. There are zero bottle neck due to the low turn out. At the end of the race, my GPS clocked only 22.3 km. Bugbear is there are no transport out of the area back to the city. Some of the photos can be found here:
  12. Pocari Sweat Run - 23 Jul 2016

    What horrible race organisation and experience. For the first 200m, many runners literally have to walk as the lanes were too congested and crowded to run. The congestions and bottlenecks continued throughout the race. 5 km and 10 km runners running in opposite directions competed for space in or running space throughout the route. This is not helped by cyclists and visitors to Gardens by the Bay blocking the path of the runners. The marshals kept asking staff runners to keep to their lanes but the fact is, runners from both sides are running out of space to run. I saw a 10 km leading runner shouting at pedestrians to clear the path as they were slowing him down.
  13. Brooks Marina Run 2015

    Good week and run for me. PB last week in Taipei. PB again today for 10km at the Brooks Run. On the way to my car, a lady approached me to for directions. Surprised that she came from Germany for the run + a few days tour. Its a long way. She got a good timing despite recovering from fever a few days ago. Congrats to her!
