  1. I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but it looks like full marathon runners will no longer be merged with half marathon runners until the last 400 m or so. I like it!... Except for the fact that Sheares bridge is still included at 39 km. I guess that's what makes this race challenging.

    I didn't know there was breakfast! I finished around 6:25 am and went directly to the Old Airport Food Centre for a nice bowl of Lor Mee.

    Is it me or there was less runners this year? I ran the 18 km race. After the race, I was directed to the staircase, which leads back to the baggage area. I didn't know you could take an alternative.

    I thought the main draw of this year's race is finishing inside of the stadium. Judging by their map, it doesn't appear so. Hope I am wrong. Edit: I just checked their FAQ. The finish line will be inside of the stadium. 'The run will flag off at Nicoll Highway and runners will finish inside the National Stadium. More details will be available at a later date.'
  6. Almost 3 month until the marathon and still no announcement on the official route? I can only hope they may be doing something drastically different this year which takes time for LTA to approve 🙏 Last year the official route was revealed on 31 Aug.
  7. First time participating this race. The only bottleneck I encountered was at the start, but that was to be expected. Overall, it was a well originized race. I had a good race. However, I do have one negative experience. I ran to the race village from my home as a warm up. I was surprised to find that they didn't have any hydration stations before the flag off. I asked for water from one guy, but he told me they were not allowed to give out water until 21 km flags off. Luckily, there was a kind gentlemen who gave me a bottle of water. Edit: Another thing I noticed is there were so many porta potties along the route and there were clear signs for them. Not many local races do that.
  8. Aww.. I will miss the dazzling lights at the orchard road. But I am excited to see the new route.

    2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    Bro, I can send you mine if you want. I am not big on medals anyways. Pm me if you are interested. This year's course seems a bit short. My watch reported 20.4km, last year was on the mark. I started in Wave 2, congestion was alright from my position, too many walkers from Wave 1.
  10. Sold..

    Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    I decided to join this race at the last minute, because I have never ran it before and I want to see what the fuss is all about... I ran the 30km category. Like autumn mentioned, there was no hydration in the village, which sucked. Many of the distance markers were in the dark, very hard to noticed. However, there were fairly accurate (+/- 100m). At the end of the race, my Garmin reported 30.1 km, not bad. I didn't encounter any shortage of drinks along the route, and they were chilled. Their isotonic drinks tasted diluted, not a big deal since it was not hot. I didn't use their baggage service, so no comments on that. I did see a long line though. Overall, I had a good great run (weather helped alot). I may join again next year!
  14. They sent me a pic of someone else To be fair, my bib number was partially covered.
