    Great Eastern Women's Run - 14th Oct 2018

    Same. Non-stretchable.

    Good decision. If the tee sponsor next year is the same then I will give gewr 2019 a miss too.

    This year's event tee is of poor quality. The material is non-stretchable! Wonder if the finisher tee will be of a different material?
  4. I agree. It doesn't look nice at all. But at least it doesn't look as stupid as last year's.

    Yes, agree that loyal supporters will sign up during early bird. The thing is this year the apparels are no longer adidas, and reg fees went up quite a bit. 😅

    Yes, but that Zumba session was not an exclusive event for GEWR participants. It was part of a community sport carnival or sth where there were many other stalls. And the flash sale was announced on the GEWR fb page. Not sure if they will have that again this yr.

    Can't rem the month but it was during one of their zumba fringe activities at sports hub. It was 2 for the price of one, i.e. 50% off, plus they gv free past yr event tee. I felt so ai wan when I saw that.

    This race doesn't reward loyal supporters. Policyholders get the same discount as loyal runners. 😅 This year's reg fees went up so much. Waiting to see if there will be flash sale like last year.

    Communication has huge room for improvement indeed.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  15. Hi, did anyone go for this race and what's the review? Is it more like our Yolo run or 2XU run?
