  1. Yesterday was my first ever FM, which I attempted with only a single long run (above 22km) and 1 gel. Paid the price after 27km once the sun started to say hello and my legs didn't feel like cooperating, so I walked off the course and went home. That my mom stays near ECP probably influenced my decision too hahaha Pity that my 5km splits were quite consistent up till this point. I normally participate in smaller 10km/HM races, which I start near the front, so yesterday's experience of starting in Pen E - with the sheer numbers ahead of me - was quite overwhelming. The zig-zagging between human traffic really takes it toll...

    NUS, definitely... the slopes at Prince George's Park and Yusof Ishak Hall are killer!

    One north Run 2018 - 2 Dec 2018

    Yup! I went for it in 2015... definitely not a flat course.
  4. Just checked and they've since resolved the issue you flagged out (see pic below for the latest results). For For my individual results, the overall time is correct, but the split distances (and as a result, the individual splits) are rubbish. How on earth can I be running at 3:24/km for one split, and 4:49/km for another?!
  5. I think I’m probably one of those you overtook! Haha what was your nett timing?
  6. Many of those runners are seeded (i.e. the fellas with the white, rather than red, bibs). There aren't too many of them (18 per formation/division, if I remember correctly - 6 NSF, 6 Regular, 6 NSmen), and almost all of them are quite fast. So I doubt they would contribute much to the human jam. The runpix results are quite interesting... Seems that despite starting only 1min 42sec after the official flag off, I managed to overtake 1,748 runners before ECP. What a mind boggling number - that's like, 15% of the total number of runners?!
  7. Runpix covered the event in 2016 and 2017 as well... This run was surprisingly un-humid compared to say, the Income Eco Run earlier this year. I finished in 1:42:27 (top 3%). No complaints about the race, although I'm curious why the water point at ECP and the cooling station at Fort Road were on the other side of the route! The mass human jam for the first 2-3km was annoying, but not unexpected given that this is a mass race and I wasn't a seeded runner. Agree that 'segregating' runners according to their expected finishing time would be a good idea, but how to enforce? Unless the organisers get runners to upload their race certificates?

    Income Eco Run 2018 - 29 Apr (Sun)

    Managed quite a decent time at the race yesterday morning... this was perhaps the most humid race I've ran in a while, v little breeze too. I finished the race totally dehydrated and my shoes were soaked through hahaha The part of the route around Marina Bay Golf Course was really a psychological challenge especially as it was still quite dark when I reached that part. My only complaint is that the water point along Tanjong Rhu (just after turning across the bridge from OCBC Sports Hub) was in the middle of a muddy, uneven grass patch. Decided to give it a miss as I didn't want to risk a sprained ankle --- or worse, muddy shoes!

    Hello everyone!

    Hello everyone, I'm new here... been running modestly since 2011 (about 800km/year). Since then, I've completed 3 FMs and about 15 HMs in SG and MY... looking for more exciting overseas races in the coming years. Somehow, and despite all that, I never thought about looking for a running forum in Singapore... well, until now! Do reply to say hi, and who knows, maybe we would see each other at some upcoming race/run
