  1. West Coast Highway was fun, reminiscent of those SCMS HM from sentosa era. The sunrise was beautiful and eerie at the same time cause it meant the scorching weather is coming. Noticed quite a few non SCSM runner using the opportunity to run at West Coast Highway, I will probably do the same too. Marina Bay and Garden by the bay on other was brutal.... This year SCSM is quite interesting experience for me, one of my personally feel worst performance (started walk and jog right after the water point next to golf course 22-23km? and then completely walked ever since 35km) and yet the best one so far in terms of organisation and volunteers & staff. Some of the volunteers were more excited to be there than the runners. Still feels the Padang finish line in front of national gallery was better but at least you could sit down at the race village and not worrying about the mud.
  2. Most likely because they haven’t finalised the runner list for HM and FM, people can still collect FM/HM racepack until this afternoon. Yes, the tracking feature works.
  3. The water points looks quite solid; though the bin is still right next to the table. From spectator POV it Looks quite organized, access point into the event could be more prominent. Congrats to all 10K and 5K runners and all the best for those running tomorrow.
  4. Talking about finisher shirt, I remember it was mentioned this time you will get the size you indicated in the registration. Since the bib is generic, how are they going to do it? Input one by one at the collection desk? Or will they just “re-register” at the collection desk.
  5. The running tee size is half size larger at least for me, I ended up sizing down one size smaller. There is an exchange booth after the merchandise section if you need to switch.
  6. Collected around 630, not so much people. Managed to get the race pack and all the merchandise. When I got out from the RECP expo, the line has snaked out from the expo hall until the sidewalk outside MBS. I didn't expect the bib to be generic, it is similar to this year Sundown Marathon, number without any name. I hope they linked the name to the bib nos correctly. Nice to meet Lady Ice/Tyre Lady at the FM queue.

    OSIM Sundown Marathon - 1 June 2019

    Yup, according to the staff at the stall. Expo rates are same as loyalty rate but without the 3% registration fee. You get free 2018 singlet tee if you signed up at the expo.
  8. At Keppel Road yes but West Coast Highway never mention we are running under flyover and at 3:45 stated "Ramp down from West Coast Highway"

    Osaka Marathon 2018 - 25th November 2018

    I did that the first time SCSM assigned wave according to previous finishing time, then I realised unless you claimed to have ran a damn fast time they will not bother to check.

    Tokyo Marathon - 3rd March 2019

    I am planning to wear inner long sleeve and outer short sleeve, with long compression pant and short. Tried similar set up minus the inner long sleeve in HK marathon this year (18-23C) it was okay except at the first few hours when it was still cold and windy. Arriving 2-3 days to acclimatize and test the waters is always a good idea.
  11. Most likely we will be running at the flyover, remember to reset your mile/km counter once you get out from CBD. GPS reception within CBD is as good as SCSM apps.
  12. Happy running for all craze nuts. Run past some of them on the way home from work along Pasir Ris Farmway and Pasir Ris Drive, hope I didn't distract some of you too much.

    CSC Run by the Bay 2018 - 20 Oct (Sat)

    Ran the Half Marathon last night, overall it was ok. Water points were plentiful although first 2 were overwhelmed by the time I reached there, I had to get my own cup and fill it myself. The crew were apologizing the whole time, I pity them quite a bit. There wasn't any bin provided at some water points. The route itself quite nice though I assume they were hit by last minute adjustment due to construction along Garden by the Bay and Tanjong Rhu. Nice trail run section. Had the same thought about that "no mass event" at the footbridge, but I remember last year "performance series" passed through the footbridge too. Kudos us for the crew, volunteer and marshals. Not easy to run through Marina bay and esplanade area on Saturday afternoon/evening time but it think it was perfectly handled. I was at the esplanade bridge when the marshal was clearing a path for the first 12.8k pack with bicycle. I ran slower than my normal time but it felt worse, I think combination of recovery process and the heat affected me more than I thought.
