  1. Vietnam Mountain Marathon VMM 2017

    Yeah, 42k comes with +2000 elevation so not easy at all. But the scenery is fantastic and ends at one of the most spectacular finish line Yup, expected X1.5 to 2 times your average marathon time.

    Great! Hope to meet some Singaporeans and make new running friends there! Was there last year... had lots of fun! Going for longer race this year. This race is getting very popular and all 21k, 42k and 70k slots are sold out.
  3. Anyone heading to SAPA for VMM2017 this weekend??

  6. Pocari Sweat Run - 23 Jul 2016

    Yeah, miss Energizer night trail. Like the format whereby I can run obstacle race with kids in late afternoon, had dinner and run night race while kids keep themselves busy with treasure hunt and other games! The route is unique too... you don't get to run in SAF training areas every weekend

    Did the 42 k trail for The Green Race last Saturday morning. Total runners probably about 900?? There were 128 finishers for 42k, 677 for 21k, not sure about 60k finishers .. maybe about 100? Race started at 6.15 for 42 & 60k runners and 6.30 for 21k runners. Good points: small boutique event, running in loops and out/back routes so plenty of opportunities to bump into friends, plenty of high fives and encouragement from fellow runners, volunteers. Cool weather. Good food (crackers, sandwiches, fruits, chocolates), cold drinks at check points. Great vibes at finishing points. Areas for improvement: no checking for mandatory items (unfair to other runners? Safety?), some 60k runners got lost in chestnut loops, no lunch provided at end point - mountain bikers zooming down track 15 despite knowing that there was on-going event - good mental training- takes sheer will power to tear yourselves away from start/finish point to start 2nd loop knowing fully well what lies ahead 😵😵 Also copied link to race review from Jon Cheal https://fromroad2trail.wordpress.com/2017/08/27/the-green-race-forest-60-well-21/
  8. Congrats to all you crazy nuts for completing crazy distances!!!! 💪💪 Awesome achievement!!! Salute!!!! Btw, think I saw Jerry& his pacer at Upper Thomson Rd/Mandai Road junction around 10am on Sunday while driving towards Yishun. Sounded my horn to show my support!!! But you guys were probably too focused and determined on completing the race to notice 😁😁😁! Once again congrats for completing such a daunting race!!! 👍👍
  9. Congrats for a hard-earned PB!!!! ✌️✌️✌️
  10. Not taking part this year... Hope all craze runners have a safe and enjoyable (and of course, very long) run this weekend!!! Stay strong and determined!!! You CAN do it!!!! 💪💪💪

    Yes... wet and slippery today. Lots of thrill and spills on the slopes and definitely lots of splashes!! Other than the cancellation (which can't really fault the organisers), few things that organiser should have done better.. - no toilets at race village?? Thot this is basic requirement lah... granted there are public toilets 300m away at visitor center but it's abit too far - no cold drinks or isotonic drinks at finishing line??? Saw some 100plus but was told that those are meant for VIPs or members?? Not very nice! - directional signages could be better at forks and junctions. - check points could be better spaced out. No doubts these are constrained by accessibility and permits from authorities. Generally though, had a enjoyable race out in the trails this morning

    Collected my pack during lunch time today even tho I'm running 21k ("allocated" date is supposed to be tmrw). Need you to sign indemnity form before kit collection and there is only one counter.. so I suspect the queue will get quite long during peak hours.

    Try running on softer surfaces like trails or even grass field. It will lessen impact on your joints, especially knees.

    For those who are hitting the trails at Macritchie for the next few months, take note of the trail closures... https://www.nparks.gov.sg/~/media/nparks-real-content/gardens-parks-and-nature/parks-and-nature-reserve/central-catchment/lta-notice-of-trail-closure.pdf
