    she's a regular.
  3. National Vertical Marathon 2017

    I believe she is Suzanne Walsham, who has won the Open Women's Category of Swissotel Vertical Marathon for the last 11 years.
  4. Otter Run 2017 - 3 Sep 2017

    I took part in Otter Runs in 2015 and 2016, both in the 10km segment, and will take part again this year. This is a run organised purely by a community club and does not involve the usual suspects. The persons at the race pack collection and the race marshals are all volunteers from the community (including some enthusiastic senior citizens). As no price money is at stake, there are hardly any foreign competitive runners or local runners decked out in club colours. I like Otter Run because it is a basic run, very affordable, comes with t-shirt and finisher's medal, and freed of commercial or glamour. It has my whole-hearted support.
  5. Machines have been shut down. See announcement by organiser on FB - "UPDATE ON COLLECTION OF RACE PACKS VIA VENDING MACHINES AS OF 11:21AM] Dear Runners, As we are unable to cope with the high demand of collection of race packs via vending machines by FotoGraft-Beta at the four shopping malls, we have decided to shut down the machines. The collection of race packs via vending machines was still under trial, and the machines were unable to cater to the overwhelming response. We are continually improving to fine tune this innovation. If you have not collected your race pack, please head down to the race pack collection at the F1 Pit Building from 4:30pm – 10:30pm today. We apologize for any inconvenience caused."
  6. Bizad Charity Run 2016 - 23 Jan 2016

    I thought the traffic was pretty patient with the runners although there was no official road closure. I saw a 10k male runner who persistently ran in the middle of the road, and what was surprising was that at one stretch, there was a bus travelling just about 10 meters behind him and there was not a toot from the bus driver who patiently followed him and finally overtook him when the traffic was clear. Kudos also to a couple of runners who constantly shouted "cars coming" to alert runners of traffic.

    Orionmiz - thanks for the informative review. I'm sure it will be useful for those thinking of taking part in this race in the future.
