    Cross Island Ultramarathon 60km

    Thank you. I will share my running experience after I complete the cross island jog.

    Cross Island Ultramarathon 60km

    For personal achievement only. Just trying to gather a group to run together. Regardless of the response, I will still try this one fine Saturday morning. (7am to 5pm)

    Cross Island Ultramarathon 60km

    Announcing the new Cross Island Ultramarathon 60km starting from Jurong West Stadium and ending at Changi Beach. Total distance 60km. Run at your own pace. No checkpoints. No cutoff but aim for 10 hours. Any interested joogers/runners?
  4. I was hoping to get something like this for my food. I did take some sandwiches but need more sugar for energy. This time I will really sit down for a hot cup noodle. Were you the one at Halus Wetlands with the cup noodle at 8pm on the way back? I was there munching sandwiches. By the way, I hope the 101 km route can be different this year. Really looking forward!!!

    Anyone in Singapore, up for a long weekend slow run.

    Where is your normal route? Problem is that I reside in the west.
  6. I have no secret recipes, just some of the following 'siily' mistakes I hope not to repeat: (1) started out too fast (6.30 min pace) (2) skipped a full meal (I thought checkpoints would provide good nutritious meals/burgers) (3) ran on wet surface (on purpose to cool feet but ended up with painful blisters)
  7. Does nny runners here know if the route from Upper Pierce Reservoir to the MacRitchie Treetops (through the country club) is accessible for jogging? See image attached.
  8. THANK YOU, SG Red Devil.....I confirm I will run this Craze Ultra again (my 2nd time) 101km. This time I will not repeat my mistakes.
  9. Hello all, Sorry I know this site is no longer active. But let me introduce you to the 100KM event Relay For Life where as an individual or team (held on overnight 2-3 March 2019) completes in 15 hours (with unlimited 15 min break + 3 meal time). Sounds like this seems more manageable than Craze 101 km event. And it is held in the National Stadium. The only thing is that you need to run round and round the track. I am thinking to participate this meaningful event as my 1st event for 2019. Anyone keen to join me?
  10. I will go for this Forest Force, if there is no pending work/family commitment. Hope to see some of you there!
  11. After the successful crazy ultra, I think I have decided to downsize to participate the Forest Force 50 (50km trail running) happening on 4 May starting from Dairy Farm. Trails should be cooler under tree shade. Anyone had ran this before? From their website, it says "The main highlight is the 50km which is a single continuous run that doesn't involve any loops"
  12. From this graph, I can see that this year, many runners slowed down at the Yishun-to-Halus segment when it was super hot. Lesson learnt for me is I started out too fast. The 1st male runner's pace was way too fast for us (see yellow line).
  13. Nice to meet you, SImonleng! Waiting eagerly for your blog on this Ultra. Regardless of the rumour, we can gather interest and organise our own version of ultras along some well-known routes. We set our own checkpoint and bring our own water/food. All runners should know the route well. Maybe have it twice a year (50km and 100km).
  14. This is my 1st Craze 101 km run and I am SO happy to complete it. The organiser, volunteers, food, drinks as well as the directional signage is fantastic. Well done! The mistake I made as a first time participant was my naïve belief that I can just survive on the CP food (sandwich, cookies,banana,etc). So I must thank SimonLeng for this great advice of carrying cash to buy a more proper meal. In the end, I was almost out of energy. I will remember this in my next run.
  15. Thanks, Beast. I am not bringing any special needs bag. I believe the wonderful selection of food and beverages at the CPs should be more than sufficient for my lightweight body. OK, so I can save my time coming down this evening to collect. Lastly, I wish all runners in this Craze Ultra 2018 a great time tomorrow.
