    King of the Trails - 11 Mar, 18 Aug, 22 Sep, 25 Nov

    I think they might not get enough people signing up for the first run, I read in whose review there were like less than 1000 participants.
  5. Run the HM. 1- For some reason Pen B weren't allowed to enter the starting pen until just before 11:50? And then there was a wave start. 2- Route itself, no surprises. It was crowded until Nicoll Highway and then again at Crawford and at Kallang Rd. I think they should be able to close extra lane at Kallang Rd, way too crowded. Silver lining, if there was any, it help my pacing during the first half of the race. 3- Water points distance was okay, though it some of them were located at the narrowest location and the bin was like next to the table. First few water points were overwhelmed. 4- Kudos to the volunteers. Lots of active cheering by them, helps a lot when you are pushing through your reserves. 5- It strengthen my beliefs, Sundown is one of those race where I will only sign up if they offer some gimmicks (extra shirt or what other thing). Otherwise I rather run other Races around the F1/Marina Bay area.
  6. 11:42 and the HM Pen B not yet allowed to enter the starting pen. Not a sundown without this stupid hiccups. Funny enough Pen A and Pen C are allowed to enter.

    Income Eco Run 2018 - 29 Apr (Sun)

    I saw that guy also, what a self entitled jerk. I can understand if you are elite otherwise get in line. Didn't have a good race, mostly through my own fault pushing way too hard right in the beginning. Run itself okay and well organised, nothing much different from last year. Path was quite open, though the turn around at fort road was bit disheartening. Some water station was overwhelmed and they should get more long table but otherwise okay. Meet similar experience with the water bottle refilling thing, I guess it was hygienic issue. Reaching underneath Helix Bridge there was a 10K runner on the verge of collapse and being held on by his friend, helped to hold him from the other side. His friend claimed he was okay and just need fresh air. The guy was delirious and in no condition to continue the race, decided not to argue with them and approach the nearest staff/volunteer to take care. I hope that guy ok, though looking back, perhaps I should be more forceful in rendering assistance.

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

    Wow, I will sign up just because they are able to announce the route at the registration phase instead of "we will announce later on". I guess this is the real "sundown" run.
  9. Was hoping for benjamin sheares bridge for the HM, no ECP but it is a "Meh" route, last year with Benjamin Sheares at the last 2-3 klicks was exciting. it is criss crossing between 500m and 8.5k? I guess even the walking contingent at the last pen can clear 500m in 30 mins? But hey this is sundown, they can screw up a simple race pack so who knows about this criss crossing thing.
  10. Did they announce the starting and finish point for HM/FM?
  11. They migrated their database into Active couple months ago. Write to them, if you don't receive the new confirmation email.

    Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018, 8 April

    Interesting development at MY Runners FB Page, they are exposing the suspected cheaters of the race. https://www.facebook.com/myrunners/
  13. Interesting now can sign up for both 5K/10K and HM/FM since it will be on different day. Good idea, might avoid all those weaving in and out of walking contingent. No info yet on the starting and finishing point but in FAQ baggage deposit will be at F1 pit building.

    Have you stop participating in the races?

    As much as love hate relationship to SCSM or Sundown, I will still keep it on my running calendar for now. Although I might drop SCSM if I can get my hand into Taipei marathon. Probably will chose either one or two from Eco income, 2XU, ST Run, Newton Challenge, CSC Run by the Bay. Some 10K charity run will still on my schedule like Run for Light, Terry Fox, YRPR. Will give the rest a pass unless the race is quite unique. This year, I made decision to run SCKLM instead of 2XU compression run, I think it is the right choice. Different level of organissation.

    Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018, 8 April

    Ran HM this morning. Route was bit boring after 7-8KM, flyover and expressway all the way until 2 kliks before the finish. Feels like running SCHKM if not the humidity and hot weather FM/HM routes merged, diverged and merged again few clicks from finish line. Heard some runner missed their turn where HM/FM diverged Long water points with quite a lot of table serving water and lucozade, though I saw some of the first few water points were overwhelmed by the runners. Overall it was a well organised event, certainly way better than Singapore Marathon. Got some feeling the EO is bit obsessed with the toilets, there were plenty. There were rows at the starting lines and at least 4 toilets at almost each water stations.
