    Have you stop participating in the races?

    Same, ditched SCMS several years ago. Will only re-consider to join if there's substantial changes to race routes and better organisation. Also ditched all 10km and most 21km events. Routes are almost similar and not value-for-money. Exception is Safra AHM which continues to be attractive with it's $16 registration fees (21km for Nsmen). Have been looking and running overseas for the past 2-3 years now. No regrets and never looking back.

    Vietnam Jungle Marathon 2018 April 14 - April 15, 2018

    Yup at Pu Luong Nature Reserve, 140km south-west of Hanoi. I think the total participants for 25km, 42km and 70km numbered less than 1,000. Happening next weekend.

    Klau Jungle Trail 2018 - Sunday, May 6, 2018

    Wild and untouched reserve forest. Only max 100 participants allowed to race. Hmm don't think can "run" in wild forest or steep slopes, only try to 'power hike'. Will pass this.

    2018 HONG KONG 168 - 30 Nov - 1 Dec 2018

    WOW! 168km - nice number and sounds like "prosper all the way". Wonder what's the total cut-off time and intermediate cut-off times? Would probably need at least 4 months of consistent, disciplined training and cross-training.
  6. Hi Noobie Exactly! Think they have no cow sense, putting the safety cones on the white lines at the side of the roads - serves no purpose at all. I have also decided not to take part in Pahang (Kuantan) marathon/races anymore. Coincidentally, I'm also left with the same 3 Malaysian states (Terengganu, Kelantan & Kedah) that I've yet to run a marathon haha.
  7. It is very incredible that we are running next to and just an arm's length from "very heavy" long industrial vehicles and lorries travelling at very fast speed! Fortunately we are mostly safe. Marathon routes on major highways and roads are clearly dangerous, risky and unsafe. Running is supposed to be a very safe healthy and fun activity. We all should disagree to take part in any marathon events that involve dangerous routes and where runners' safety are compromised with inadequate safety controls and/or full safety measures are not in place.

    Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    I don't think E-certificates are available. There is no mention of E-certificates in the official website. Did they provide E-certificates for Finishers last Year?

    Force of Nature Ultra 2018

    Yup surely confusing because I think there are mistakes, i.e. km distance markers are wrong. Notice there are two 40km markers and no 50km marker. Hmm . . .

    Marina Run 2018 - 10 Feb (Sat)

    There are distance markers throughout (including the 30km). However, I think they were rather haphazard (ie. not every km or every 2km etc). The reasons we didn't see the distance markers could be: indiscriminately placed, dark corners, etc. I did saw the 3km, 5km, 6km and 8km (before the 21km U-turn) markers. Yup I agree the 30km start time could be earlier so that more runners are able to take part and still get home on the last train/bus.
  11. wow, you were back home so fast after AHM today :o) haha ... thanks for sharing cab from Bedok stadium to Esplanade. Cya in coming races ... cheers
