    Income Eco Run 2018 - 29 Apr (Sun)

    The irony is that this is a race that provides cups. A real zero waste race does not provide cups at all. This event also announces it recycles all the cups used and I saw volunteers with cans collecting safety pins from runners after the race. Pouring water into cups takes less than 5 seconds. Runners bottles being filled take 10 secs or more. It was holding up the queue AND at most water stops, I saw people grabbing the water refill bottles from the volunteers and filling up their water bottles and I was looking for water but saw empty cups with no water on table. On my personal jogs, I always carry own bottle. Some events that do not provide cups, I bring my own bottle. But this event provides cups. And majority did not bring own hydration container. My observation is that the people with bottle were holding up the runners looking for hydration at water points. To call the volunteers ‘rude’ is unwarranted, as I looked at them having to pour water into bottles with narrow necks instead of cups and taking longer to pour longer to fill up the bottles. I also saw 1L bottles snatched from volunteers who did not say anything back. I salute these volunteers. I’m sure there are also other runners who saw the big 1L bottles discarded as litter with a lot of water in it. What a waste! As a 3hr plus finisher, I had lots of time to observe much of the going on and really, those with their own bottles should not do what I observed on Sunday. That’s the true irony.

    I had a painful HM. Totally my fault for not clocking the miles in training and the weekend before was rained out without any run. So both my 2nd toes are bruised and aching. My 2 colleagues stopped with knee and foot injuries and DNF, walking back to Stadium MRT to go home. I saw a few water stations where runners with bottles were asking volunteers to fill their bottles. I think it's best fill from the water dispenser or go further down the H2O or 100Plus tables instead of holding up the queue of runers waiting for cups of drinks to be filled while 1L bottles were being filled from the 1L mineral water bottles or 100Plus 'plastic jars' - that's my response to Stalky about 'rude volunteer' It was truly a humid morning. I was glad I was well hydrated before the run. Pity I forgot to eat something (another mistake I made). Puntured after 7km, I literally walked to the end, more or less with my ankles and toes progressively feeling more and more painful with every step i took. Another tip - must trim toe nails before a long run... Sigh....me amateur runner mistakes and finished more than 20 mins slower than my 2017 Run350 HM time 😢😭

    The few years I take part in Run350 and 2XU HM, the route is identical or very similar. What to do.....Singapore is a small island after all.
  8. I stopped registering in 2017. 2018 also don't plan to register........
  9. those who NS in SCDF (or SPF) no get cheap rate...or ya, never serve NS also excluded. But majority who serve NS (in SAF) will benefit from a generally well organised if not sometimes crowded run.
