    Actually not to take anything away from ah siao but I dragged my tyre all the way in the Singapore marathon in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 and stopped doing the Singapore Marathon at that point. I dragged my tyre in other events going up to ultras (such as twilight) until I got to 50 marathon events and then began to do part way pull and part way carry in longer ultra events up to 150km. 

    After a 6 year break of the Singapore marathon, I restarted doing the Singapore marathon in 2018 to put a point across as part of the actions we can take as runners. However after being on my feet all day Long doing the expo beforehand, I found I was tired for the event and also need to consider the safety of other runners on the road. It is not really possible to drag my tyre all the way on the wch and parts of East Coast.

    Dear Ice Lady, you have my respect when i saw you pulling tyre last year SCSM especially you believe so much in your worthy cause. Keep up your good work & i will bin my trash properly. Cheers.

    BYOB event 'cos no paper cups will be provided at hydration points. Distance & finisher T as per last year. New Fun Run non-competitive category is added to the Run and its for 1 lap of 4.3km only.

    Lastly, slight increase of fee as compared to last year.

  3. Did not realize that the slots are limited till the extend of missing out the early rate & normal rate.

    Wrote to the organizer if possible to register. Limited slots are re-opened for guy category again.

    So for those who have itchy legs & still want to run, can consider to join this trail event before it closes again.

    Only joined this run once since the price is on the high side (not a fan of repeated visits to the zoo).

    But since this is the final edition, keen to run it for one last time.

    The problem is........... it clashes with the Forest Force 50 run that I am also keen to take part....... Sigh.

     

    Hi Beast if i'm in your shoe, i would choose Zoo run over Forest Force 50. Rational 2 reasons: 1) Zoo finisher medal is ELM whereas Forest Force finisher medal is not. 2) Zoo run is taking a break whereas there is always Forest Force 50 2021.

    Congrats on completing 101km!

    its is not easy.  So many long stretches and changes in weather.  Yes this year i took part in 55km which starts in the evening.

    @wonderfulblevic, apologies that i gave you wrong impression that i joined 101km. Instead i joined 72km & i was struggling with soiled wet shoes due to blessed rain. Blisters lai liao... Needless, i was in pain. If next year there is Craze Ultra, i will downgrade the distance just like you. Lol...

    Saw Simon Leng ate his lunch McDonald while running out of North Point. Wow. That's how you guys did it saw in my own eyes. We greeted encouraging words towards one another.

    Like i mentioned earlier, i have every respect all you guys did your 101 km. Salute!!!

    Good luck to all runners. Looks like will be hot day. Take care and run safe. Enjoy!

    I thought you did shorter distance?

    Now i understood why @prisangelwas not willing to join Craze Ultra. Roasted by the sun, blessed by the rain, attacked by Z-monsters & tabao blisters yesterday. Lol...

    Anyway, i salute all who did 101 KM. Rest well guys.

    Did u think the medal design is underwhelming, or the personalised part looks underwhelming?

    I thought the personalised part looks nice! Too bad I didnt join this run.

    I share the same sentiment with you. That's why i have yet to join this event.

    I just hope there is no rain. In CU2018, I actually loved the cool shower along Punggol Promenade. But When I returned back along Yishun, my wet shoe caused a blister to appear under my right sole. I had to tolerate (and slow down) all the way back to MacRitchie. 

    Anyone got any remedy for this?

    @loderunner maybe you would like to try taping both soles to prevent blisters before the race. Extra socks as standby to change if current sock is wet during race. This was shared by some ultra runners when i posed them same question. Now i hardly have blisters anymore. Hope this helps.

    PS: Once blister occur, no medicine can ease the pain & do not break the blister.

    perhaps a possibility of 50-50? :)

     

    AutumnRunner pretends not to see our messages. I guess Beast was right! Lol...

    This year's 101km attracted quite a few very fast runners. We also have some 100 miles runners from previous years that are joining us this time for the 101km too. I foresee that by the time I reach CPs at Lorong Harus or Sunshine Plaza,  I should be seeing all these fast runners as they will already be making their way back. 😅

    101Km category is interesting to look at especially with a Kenya runner. Anyway just be yourself on race day.

    Good luck to all of us in 2 weeks time D-Day!

    Looks like the haze is going to be here to stay and will definitely affect those Nuts out there this year. Especially those doing 101km, where most will be out in the open for like 18~20 something hours, I wonder how will be the impact? Ever since the hazy condition got into unhealthy level, all my training has been put off. Oh dear...how ah? 🙄

    I heard the haze during Craze Ultra for the year 2015 was far worse?

    You are not alone. I'm also not clocking enough mileage too... 24 days counting down.

    I think  you mean you cancelled your post and not that the race is cancelled right?  :crazysmile:

    You may want to edit your post to avoid confusion. :jump:

    Apologies lonewolf. Wanted to delete the wrong post but cannot find so typed cancelled. Not realizing a-bit misleading.

    You are right that can be handled better. Cheers.

    Good call by the organizers. Weather was good. No sun at all. Enjoyed the run. Did notice the entertainment along the route didn’t seem to be as good as previous years where I recall there were drummers. Post race goodies also very basic. The Ben & Jerry ice cream was nice though. 

     

    P.s. literally stood next to Pris Chew at the start pen. She wore the “wings” on her shoe. 

    Fully agreed with you on what you have mentioned. Luckily, haze did not really hampered the race.

    Enjoyed myself on a good workout. Finisher medal is nice.
