  1. Participated in the SG Run 21km, same old problem with water station. The first few water station were overwhelmed by the runners. It should be a criminal offence to let 2 volunteers handle a single table as a water station. It just couldn't handle the crowd, especially the first few click. I bought bottled sports drink at the bike rental store at ECP and just carry it for the entire race. The route itself quite well marked and marshaled.
  2. nothing much inside the racepack, event singlet, bib, small bottled water, bunch of fliers and string bag.
  3. Overall it was a nice run, well organised. It was same route like 2018 for HM category. Plenty of portable toilets at the starting line and 4-5 portable toilets at few points along the route. Water station were quite plentiful and long enough to avoid unnecessary congestion. Interesting to point out, they put few cones to channel those runners going for a water away from those runner passing the water station. Scenery wise, once you hit the expressway at km 8 it was quite boring all the way until km 17-18. The rolling slopes at the last 10km hits you quite hard. Medals is of good quality, and also coloured. Quite a sad news that the RD announced there were 2 runners involved with a hit and run in the FM category. 1 was quite serious(broken bones) and admitted to hospital and other one jump to a roadside ditch.
  4. When I did my run this year, I stay at Hanzomon area, on the other side of Imperial Palace from the finishing area. I found it quite nice, not too far from either start line or finish line. The marathon started at 9am? at Shinjuku area, so you don't have to really wake up in ungodly hours like in normal SG running event.
  5. Congrats, get ready to book your accommodation. Lookout for PocariSG, normally they will arrange some sort of seminar/sharing session about the Tokyo Marathon
  6. Seems we are waiting for haze to clear up, I hope it is not a repeat of 2015 SCKLM.
  7. I prefer those rectangle style medals but this one looks quite nice.
  8. Start slow, even when you feel comfortable to increase the pace.
  9. According to the apps there were 163 runners participated on 10K. Route was bit packed when started but ease off after the first climb in Hort Park. There was 1 water stop at the 10K, with 100Plus and water. I understand from the briefing, there was another water stop for HM route.
  10. One of the hardest 10K, the medal is quite nice. Shirt looks nice too sadly there's not XL size. Impressive event but RidgeRunners
  11. It is one of my favourite place to run, used to run around it when I lived quite nearby. The route is quite challenging, few major climb follows by descent at Hort Park, Gillman Barrack, Henderson wave and Mt Faber. Signed up for 10k, but lets see.
  12. Interesting run, tempted to sign up for the 21k, but 2 loops at South Buona Vista and the climb to the park isn't that fun.
  13. SCSM has been doing these ever since they combine starting line for HM and FM. So far no issues with it? Route wise okay lah, don’t have a lot of chance to run at West Coast Highway.

  15. There are few shops carrying Garmin watch accessories, you can try Advance Laps in Kallang Wave. If not, online should be your next best option
