  1. They used antennas, kind like the cell phones tower type.
  2. Check out Google map. The entire marathon route is plotted there.
  3. Thanks for the tip, will be looking out for it in January.
  4. Ya! Happy training as well!
  5. Thanks all! Is it better to stay near the finish line or the starting line?
  6. Woohoo, after 4 years of trying, I finally got in! Results are out today. All the best! Anyone else?
  7. It's also important to do most of your run at conversational pace. You shouldn't be gasping for air at the end of your run.
  8. Good luck! My next goal is around the island run (~100km). But that will be a few more years in the future, don't have the time now sadly.
  9. I did a similar run back in April. Took the mrt to Tunas Link at midnight and ran to Changi Beach Park. Total distance was around 53 km. One advice I have for anyone attempting to run in Tunas at night is be aware of stray dogs! I got chased by one. Luckily it backed off after I got far enough. Just curious, what did you use for navigation? I used the breadcrumb feature on my Garmin. It worked fine until a road is closed off, then I had to pull out my phone and check the map.
  10. You will be fine (sounds like you have many mileage under you already). From now til 2 weeks before race day, do more long runs (21 - 27 km).
  11. I think it was meant to force you to "cool down"..hah. It was an opportunity for me to stretch my legs. I did alright, got a local PB despite cramping very hard towards the end. I am not too sure why, because I had 4 gel, 4 salt tablets, and ample hydration. Temperature was rather cool today, but the trade off is humidity. Before I head out, it was like 99% across the race route. I saw at least 6 elites (plus 1 wheelchair athlete) dropping out of the race. One of them dropped out at the 12 km mark! I guess they are not used to the humid weather here. I really like the Westcoast Highway portion of the race. The cool breezy was nice. This edition of SCSM is the best organized race yet. They had hydration on both sides and they were at least 10m in length. I saw plenty of toilets along the route and they were visible signs pointing to them. My only complain is the distance marker, they were a bit too small to see, especially in the dark. Lastly, their app worked fine this year. My wife had no problem tracking me. I hope the organizer keep up this effort for next year and beyond.
  12. The App has been updated with runner's bib number. Good luck to all of you! Looks like it's going to a humid morning (96%).
  13. Just picked up my pack (marathon). It took me just under 10 min. The expo is huge this year, so many vendors. I see more people are coming now, so expect longer waiting time in the evening.
  14. This morning's weather was perfect, hoping next week will be similar!
  15. Thanks, guys. Looks like everyone's opinion is on the West Coast Highway. I sent a message to SCSM just to confirm. I will update here once I get a response. Hopefully everyone took the advantage of this morning's cool temperature. I had a lovely long run, even though 3/4 of it was running in the rain.
  16. Does anybody know whether the West Coast Highway portion of the race will be on the actual highway or below? My gut feeling is telling me it will be below the highway. If that's the case, GPS is pretty much useless for pacing, gonna have to do manual splitting.
  17. 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.
  18. Got rejected for the third time
  19. 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.
  20. Aww.. I will miss the dazzling lights at the orchard road. But I am excited to see the new route.
  21. Haha. I can't believe I didn't see it on the map, how embrassing. I guess I was looking too hard. Thank you for the info! you can take a look at the various routes for the water points.. http://www.marathonsingapore.com/race-routes/
  22. This will be my first time doing the Standard Chartered Marthone. I was wondering will there be water stations along the route? I couldn't this information anywhere. Thanks!
