  1. Me personally think that China is up & coming regardless of road races or trail events ie. UTMB etc. We will definitely see more & more Chinese runners. Plus point that is their sporting culture much stronger than ours. Political reason we will see a China marathon becomes one of WMM in the future & most like will be Chengdu Marathon. Rational Wanda Chairman's hometown is at Chengdu. Link: SDM might not be known internationally but due to marketing efforts of previous owner HiVelocity, they have sold the idea of "Largest Night Race in Asia" to this region ie. China, Taiwan, Malaysia etc. So definitely if any runner is talking of night race, SDM will come in the picture & not clone like Bangkok Midnight Marathon. Of course SDM has much to improve as compared to SCSM & cut down silly mistakes like Water Not Enough. If not, it will be like what you said Sleep Forever.
  2. Bro, i don't think SDM will die out. I felt SDM has become a branding on it's own over the years. A truly "Sleep Can Wait" event that runners ran unearthly hours over the years. If it shifts, more likely to capture market share of muslim runners like kohpapa mentioned.
  3. Not necessary. Unless you are sick of local runs, 3 Heavanly Runs ie. 2XU,, SDM & SCSM all runners will join regardless of whichever month plus Income Run due to cheapest around.
  4. Not easy to solve but shifting SCSM from Dec to Jun can elevate traffic issues? You seriously must be joking... Lol.
  5. I seriously don't see why the shoe should be banned. Make no sense at all. If technology can improve one's timing or feel good factor, it should be allowed in my opinion.
  6. In my opinion, road closure issue at CBD cannot be resolved at all. Non-runners will NEVER be understanding. These can be seen 1) NDP held either at Padang or Floating Platform 2) Spore F1 Night Race where there are still alot of complaints about jams or affecting nearby business. So what's new? I believe in Beast's sharing of stretching to ECP to lessen the traffic impact. No complaints? Impossible.
  7. Just to share that there was a last minute change of running route for MR25 last week. Not sure why was the changed but sure was super crowded.
  8. Wow 4am with trail lights! I don't think i have the courage like you to do it. Read somewhere got white stuff at MR. I have seen elsewhere before so i do not wish to encounter again. You champion & have my respect.
  9. @kohpapa, thanks for your encouraging words. I will definitely be back to conquer next year. Thanks @starfinder bro for your well wishes. Trail events are very limited in Singapore compared to road events. All of us strive for challenges rather than PB for road. Do start somewhere for a start if not when? @wonderfulblevic i hate climbing up those long man made steps too. Lol... Worse was alot of foreign leisure walkers blocking the way. Gathered at Ranger station talking loudly giving an impression you are at shopping mall instead at nature. Sibei suay.
  10. @beastbro, i attended the event yesterday. I enjoyed myself yesterday 'cos i always believe trail event is more challenging than road events. Unfortunately, i DNF on my 2nd loop due to sprain ankle during the process. Game over... Sianz... This is my personal rating of this event: Race Expo: 4/5 (Even though there are 3 booths, no queue at all & race pack consists of Bib, Pocari drink, 30% voucher, energy gel & post race recovery mixture) Race precinct: 4/5 (Adequate hydration, toilets nearby, quick deposit at baggage) Medal/Singlet/Finisher tee: 3.5/5 (Finisher tee design is nice but i did not managed to get due to DNF) Post Race: 3/5 (Given bananas, water melon, water and pocari drink which is limited compared to Running Guild events) Race: 4/5 (5 loops of 10.5KM within 12 hours. Trail Ultra- 90% trail 10% road) Overall rating: 3.7/5 PS: Where i fall, i will come back to run again.
  11. Glad that you enjoyed the event. Rejoining next year?
  12. No right or wrong on finisher T for HM @ marathon events ie. SDM & SCSM. In my opinion so long the finisher T consists of distance completed, i do not think HM finisher T will cheapen those who completed FM. I'm only against general finisher T or finisher medal for all which i felt injustice for the longest distance completed. So far i have encountered Marina Run 2018 (finisher T) & Force of Nature 2018 (finisher medal). No effort from organizer!
