  1. Start was delayed by 30 minutes. The distance measured by my Suunto was 9.06km. The distance signage started screwing up as early as 2km. Event area was all muddy and queue at the medal collection was a mess.
  2. It was a good "Introduction to Trail Run" if it could be compared to a book. Not too steep, not too muddy (some people might disagree), not too rocky, and not too much tarmac/concrete. The long stretch of flat rail corridor at the beginning was useful in getting runners warmed up and spreading the crowd out. The most muddy runs I encountered were the Salomon Trail 2012 at Tampines and The North Face 2013 (downpour during the start caused the rail corridor mud to turn creamy, yucks), someone even lost his shoe deep in the mud and was digging for it.

    Looking for good TCM physicians

    Had a bad fall and hurt my lower back since three weeks ago. Now still have difficulty jogging. Went NUH Ortho and was asked to rest (given painkiller) and wait for six weeks for review. Meanwhile wasn't given any physio or anything, no diagnosis whatsoever. Prefer to actively seek ways to recover, considering TCM. I used to go to a very effective TCM Ortho physician at Jurong East but he has already retired and closed his clinic. Anyone here knows of very effective TCM docs that you can recommend?

    Income Eco Run 2018 - 29 Apr (Sun)

    Very humid today, gave up running after 5km. Towards the finish line one 10km runner collapsed in front of me. I went to check on him with another runner, and shouted for medic to come. The runner was already looking like collapsing for some time but he was too far ahead of me to do anything to prevent him from collapsing. He was brought up the ambulance after that.

    Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    Something happened at the end of the barrage near the finish line at around 10:30 pm. Anyone knows what happened? I saw an ambulance reversing on the barrage and some medics packing up something at about 10:50 pm. A bouncer stopped the runners from running to allow the ambulance to evacuate the casualty.

    YOLO Run 2017 - 11 Nov (Sat)

    Worst run ever. I thought the Mizuno Wave Run 2009 and Sundown Marathon 2017 were bad enough, this one sets new "standards".

    Brooks Marina Run 2015

    Is there a running track parallel to East Coast Parkway between golf course and Ford Road? That's new to me.

    Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

    There were a group of runners running at the 6h pace. One of the runners were running with a big golden '6' balloon. They are not part of the official pacer group but there were present last yr too. I'm not sure if they come in on time cos while I did overtook them at F1 pit building, I never saw them again after I stopped for a walk break. Last yr I overtook them for a short while at ECP but again they overtook me and I never saw them again ~lol~ Oh yah, now I remember seeing that big "6" balloon that looked like a huge banana from far. No wonder I didn't see it at all despite overtaking it and crossing the finishing line at 6:02 gun time subsequently.

    Just wondering, was there any 6 hr pacer group? If yes, does anyone know if they finished on time or came in late?
