    Lots of comments on the distance. sure there were some spots where gps signal will be blocked due to roads or roof overhead. But the route last year similar. That’s why Inposted what my watch measured last year and this. I am certain the distance was shorter because I started walking earlier this year and I finished 16 mins faster. Since I walked a fair bit due to straining and injuring my ITB before Sunday, I didn’t go left and right much and stayed close to the side of the route. Rightfully, I should clock more than 21.1km but didn’t. Anyway, majority are not using the results for overseas race qualification but even if you do, faster finishing times for ystd HM may mean you start at earlier start pen. LOL Let’s be thankful for quick release of official results and also Running Shots who uploaded the photos to FB already. On to next race.......

    Total distance The distance markers close to my Polar watch for 1km, 2km, 10km, 12km,. The rest at least 600m off. Like 10km distance marker, my Polar was at 9.98km. Super great. Then the 11km marker my watch was 10.48km. Faint...... Cross finish line: Polar watch measured: 20.68km. My Hp Endomondo app: 20.72km. Definiely not 21.1km. No wonder I shaved off more than 15mins from last year's HM. (Last year my watch measured 21.44km - so maybe this year they reduce 340m for the extra given last year 😅 ) Okay the good: Weather was cloudy unlike last year's blazing hot sun but it was super humid - drench in sweat before 1km (not attributable to organiser). Thanks for having cold 100Plus at water points. Much appreciated. We started HM on time. First time I managed to get a free energy gel as I am usually too slow to get any. They even supply Salonpas spray which I never use but some runners happily used. Running Dept offered chocolotes (Toblerone!) and gummies but most 21k runners siam them not knowing who are they or whatever or maybe eat chocolate kena stomach cramp or something. LOL Is it me and my colleagues but we all think both the 21.1km and 10km we participated in this year is not as crowded as last 2 years......(?)

    HM finisher tee is a polo tee? Quite appealing as not common

    This run may be not the cheap cheap run (Run350 is cheaper), but runners shouldn't complain distance bah. Payment of race fee includes entitlements and along the route got refreshments, first aid, marshall, etc. I got friends who distance was measured was such a wide range from 20km to 21.3km. So route seems like short errather than longer. But consider this, a couple I know both run HM route yesterday together with Garmin GPS watch (I don't know same Garmin model or not). One Garmin recorded 20km and the other 20.83km. So either the GPS signal is screwy, or the watch of one has a defective GPS chip or something else. I am a slow pace finisher (above 3 hours and my Polar is usually no more than 300m +/- for any of my HM but that doesn't mean Polar is the most accurate). If you run fast pace or run near the end of curves or bends along route or weave left and right a lot, it may add or subtract to measured route. So for those of us who ran our own race, let's be happy we finished healthy and fine. And......let's look forward to the next run event!

    Payment by credit card works when download their app. The WebApp doesn't work when you want to pay. But I am unhappy. Defiitely delete ShareTransport app after this run.
