  1. Still debating...
  2. Yea, man. Maybe he said 600 runner..haha. But I am sure I heard the number 6000. I believe that's the problem with free events. People sign up and then lack the motivation to actually show up because they got nothing to lose, since it's free. I think more runners would have shown up if it was in the evening instead of early Sunday morning.
  3. Guess not many of you joined this race? I did see Prisangel and spiderman though, will be waiting for her expert review. In the meantime, here's my short summary. According to the organizer around 6000 people signed up for this race. Of those people only 20% paid... That's right, 4800 did not pay a single cent for this race. I only paid for the timing chip. They had only 3 hour to set up the race village due Star War run from last night However, it did not feel like there were 6000 runner there. My guess will be around 200-300 runners. They also mentioned they may consider organizing a 21 km race next year. Overall, a good race. One thing I noticed is that there were no volunteers along the route to guide runners in the right direction. You have to pay attention to signs and knowing the race route in advance. Hydration were plentiful, at least from my experience. There were also bottles of cold pocari sweat drink waiting at the finish line. Will join again next year!
  4. Let's hope so 🤞
  5. Collect my bib tonight, which I almost forgot, no que at all. Strangely enough, they got race cars (Porsche and Alfa Romeo) on display. Do they think runners who seek out affordable run are able to afford a $500k car? 😂
  6. *Cricket sound* I am gonna skip this race. I have been slacking ever since 2XU, but I am gonna be at Run Free next week.
  7. "Enjoy a completely new route" - SCSM I hope this is true.
  8. I know what you mean. I did my first half-marathon in 5c weather. I barely sweated at all.
  9. I also have entered the ballot. It will be my first time running a marathon in a cool climate. Ready to smash my PB..haha.
  10. That's so early, considering SCMS 2016 was 4 month ago!
  11. Thanks! I must be running too fast that I didn't see it..:P
  12. Well, I am on a roll. After getting my PB in marathon last week, I got a PB for half marathon today! Legs held up well during the race, no cramps or pain. Overall very positive experience. 2XU is definitely a better organized event than Sundown. I arrived early, around 3 am. The race ground wasn't crowded at all, unlike Sundown. There are big signs telling runners where to go; no muddy ground; hydration station were well stocked. But, I didn't see any banana at hydration station at around 15 km mark. Last but not least, the finisher medal. It's much higher quality than Sundown's. I think I will sign up for 2XU next year.
  13. My company is one of the sponsors of this run. I will definitely be there.
  14. Got a cheap deal for a bib, and my legs feel like they have recovered enough from last week's marathon. Hence, I will be participating in this too. My first 2XU event. Interested to see what the hype is about..ha
