  1. Taishin Women Run Taipei 2018

    The run was held at Taipei on 15 Apr. Participants choose to run either 10k or 21k. Apparel sponsor used to be Nike but is now New Balance. Flao-off time was 0530 for 21k and 0600 for 10k. There were reportedly 18000 participants this year. This is a well-organised event with ample hydration points and snacks provided along the way. Pacers from 1:40 to 2:45 were available. Along the way, there were many youngsters stationed there as supporters, and their energy was infectious. This event is comparable to the local GE Women Run in terms of organisation, scale and runners' welfare. It is a refreshing change if you are bored of the usual local route and would like to run on an entirely different route, or you just want to participate in another women run.

  3. 2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    I reported at 4.15 a.m. and was shocked that after 3 flag-offs it was still not my turn to run. First I heard that there were many walkers in the earlier waves and Nicoll Highway was jammed. Then there was some technical issues and they had to replace something and we had to wait for our own good. Many people were frustrated. I only started to run at wave 4 at about 5.10, almost an hour after I reported to the start pen. The plus point of the race is that hydration was sufficient and the bananas were good quality stuff. Other than that, I do not see what's the big deal about this event. For the price they charge, the race pack and runners' welfare are pathetic. I feel that this race is over-rated.
  4. On the Hills 2018

    Sold out on spacebib, but 10% discount still valid at Run Magazine shop. You have to wait for the shop to email a promo code and use it to register at the event site.
  5. Hi, did anyone go for this race and what's the review? Is it more like our Yolo run or 2XU run?
  6. 2XU Compression Run 2018 - 8 Apr (Sun)

    Hi, heard someone received discount code for this run at the recent scsm expo. Did anyone here receive it?
  7. Actually after collecting the items I didn't know where I could sit down to take a rest. The legs were cramped and painful but there was nowhere to sit. I hoped there could be clear direction to tell runners where they could rest.
  8. I find it puzzling that during or after REPC many people were asking to swap for event tees one or two sizes smaller, but for finisher tee most people were unhappy because the bigger sizes were oos. Why? Is it because they want to use the finisher tee as blanket or cushion cover?
  9. Bro, you're amazing! 👏👏👏 btw what's QRY & SRT?
  10. Ya, my watch says 44.1km. But this is an IAAF event so they can't get it wrong, right?
  11. Hi, where is a good place to eat after the FM if one doesn't drive?
  12. Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    Which event is XE doing next? 🤤
  13. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Actually many runners do not know who are the event organisers. If you vote by the name of the event it will be a more accurate measure. 😆 For me, I don't know the difference between the organisers except for the last one.
  14. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Ya boy. So glad to have saved money and agony. 😅
  15. YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Thanks bro! I skipped this race after reading the comments in the forum. So grateful that I read them. 😄
