    National Day Coney Island Run 2018 - 29 Jul (Sun)

    Well said. I think its the usual case of people wanting stuff to be cheap and good. Wanted to join, but was committed to the Trifactor event on the same day.

    OXFITT Run Till Dark 2018 - 21 Jul (Sat)

    Hope that in the future, many more races follow suit and provide such incentives for a wider group of runners to aim for, and not just for the elite 0.1% - 0.3% of finishers.

    Garfield Run & Carnival 2018 (10 June)

    I tried to sign up some time back. At that time, the run was abruptly cancelled, but the carnival was still to go ahead. No big surprise that now the entire thing is cancelled.

    Hello Kitty Run Singapore 2018 - 15 Jul (Sun)

    Are ELM medals really so high quality to warrant such a distinction?
  6. I thought that the conditions were perfect for a morning run. Race was well organized with no significant choke points. The only confusing part was that 6 km turn, but most people who checked the route beforehand should know which direction to turn.

    HOOGA Run 2018 - 6 Oct (Sat)

    Thanks for pointing it out bookie. GradeOne Capital Pte Ltd it is. I think Lonewolf just missed it in the same way i did. To be fair, who the organizer was is not clearly highlighted on the main page, or on the main links at the top of the website. Even after you pointed out who the organizer was, I went back to the website and still was not able to find it at first glance. Had to specifically look at your post, and go back to the web page in order to locate the organizer. Did a quick google for the organizer hoping to find a portfolio of events previously conducted, but i did not see any results.

    HOOGA Run 2018 - 6 Oct (Sat)

    Lolz, I was thinking of the same thing when considering whether to register for this event. However, was not able to find any mention of who the organizer was from the website.

    On the Hills 2018

    Thanks for sharing. I'll think about whether to request for a refund (no good replacement run around those dates). I think since NParks was the "true" reason, the race organizer should be upfront and provide that reason to the participants, rather than pretend to suddenly be environmentally conscious. I think the NParks reason reasonably justifies the sudden change to a BYOB run (though it is still annoying to participants).

    On the Hills 2018

    Personally speaking, it is a deal breaker for me. I carry water with me for long (10K) training runs, but expect to run without a bottle during paid runs. I would have never signed up for this had they stated from the onset that it was a BYOB run. I find it highly frustrating and unethical of them to make such a change 2 weeks from the event. What is the point of paying for the run when I can run with a bottle on my own?
