  1. Totally agree... I frequently do 10ks or HMs and clock about 40km/week. I think of myself as a decent HM runner, but to 'upgrade' to the FM is a whole new level of pain... you really really need condition yourself by clocking the kms (at least 80km/week methinks), otherwise you'll really start feeling the cramps after 25km. I attempted the FM 3 times about 8-10 years ago and don't ever want to do another one again - not in SG at least!
  2. Wonder what pace(s) these runs are conducted in... am looking for people to push me for sub-5:00/km hahha
  3. Signed up for HM category, Pen B (sub 1:45 timing). Had to submit proof via a URL. I think this is the first time I'm doing something like this for a local race. Good move to discourage overcrowding at the start pens further in front. Haven't done a proper SCSM Half-Marathon for about 10 years, so am looking forward to it!
  4. I've got a slot for the HM. Is anyone else running?
  5. Threw my name into the ballot for the 21km category (registered under Malaysian address - that's why need to ballot). Any other runners confirm going? Did the HM also in 2016 and 2017, but I think the route this year and last year was slightly different?
  6. 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...
  7. NUS, definitely... the slopes at Prince George's Park and Yusof Ishak Hall are killer!
  8. Yup! I went for it in 2015... definitely not a flat course.
  9. 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?!
  10. I think I’m probably one of those you overtook! Haha what was your nett timing?
  11. 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?!
  12. 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?
  13. Hi guys, I stay in Alexandra View. Anyone up for a run? I prefer running 7km and more at one go..
