  1. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    3 loops of 10km? Heng i never have to do that.
  2. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    I didn't take part in Newton Challenge for the last 3 years. The last one i took part still required 32km runners to do 1 1/2 loops at ECP. So this route is new for me.
  3. I used to think i'm very yandao and very satki. But after seeing him in person, all i can say is that @AutumnRunner more yandao and more satki !! End of debate

    You mean the up slope at Marina Barrage? I better incorporate some training there before race day...just in case.

    Hello kohpapa. Thanks for sharing the old Sundown Marathon route map. It was my first FM back in 2009, brings back a lot of 'painful' memories hahaha. I've yet to check out the new Tanah Merah Coast Road as i've not ran at ECP for a long time. Maybe it's time to check it out soon.

    Good write up, highlighting the ugly side of many runners and races here in Singapore. Maybe one way to increase awareness and discourage indiscriminate littering at races is by placing marshalls at waterpoints to catch runners that litter beyond the designated trash areas. Those who are caught will be disqualified from the race right away. If only race organizers have the guts to implement such punishment....

    Wow......this one really wow !!! Can't believe there are such 'cheaters'. I'm speechless....

    I think those CPs that ran out of isotonic drinks are those closer to the start/end point that were also used by the 10km, 21km and 50km runners. They probably underestimated how much ultra runners drink at an ultra.

    Finally!!! A 100km race review!!!! Thanks @yaoxing for the race report, and a BIG congratulation to you for finishing the 100km. Must've been a very long night for you. Good job there buddy!! With regards to flagging off the race during the thunderstorm, i must also applaud their courage for doing so. Delaying the flag off would be a logistical nightmare for them, and they could've used this as an excuse to downgrade 100km to 50km due to the late flag off. Or worst still....cancel the race!! There are still teething problems, most glaringly running out of isotonic drinks at some checkpoints towards the later part of the race. Although it's meant to be a self-sufficient race, but some runners rely on the isotonic drinks at the CPs to replenish their electrolytes. Not everyone carries their own electrolytes. Hopefully the organizer will look into this very seriously if they are going to organize this again.
  10. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    Were there km markers and directional signs? And were they easily spotted? Were the CPs well manned, stocked and equipped?
  11. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    So far, i've not heard of any negative experience from the race. Kudos to the organizer to get it right this time! If this race is coming back next year and time permitting, it'll be part of my 2018 race schedule.

    Rain has stopped in Punggol. Looks like it's gonna be a cooling evening. Good luck guy!
  13. 2XU SG-Ultra Marathon (07 Oct - 08 Oct)

    All the best to all 2XU SG Ultra runners later!!! Rain or shine, you guys will cross the finish line!!!
  14. Newton Challenge 2017 - 29 Oct (Sun), Marina Barrage

    You're looking for pacers to hit sub 3hrs for 32km? Don't need lah, you can do it yourself already LOL
  15. Hmm....good point. Honestly, i did enjoy the race last year as i was lucky not to be one of those affected by the lousy race pack collection fiasco. So i guess i'll sign up again. See you all on race night next year!!
