Hey I'm in. I never understood why my area (Somerset) is so devoid of runners, and thus a running club. 5k is kind of short, tho'...

Like 40 people turned up and they started about 7. Quite ok run I think, although the had to navigate thru traffic at the start of the run. They had like drinks and Lucky Draw prize and sandwich coupons. Not bad. Will run next Wednesday!

Can anyone post the weekly running routes here?

It's still rather confusing for me from the last time the map I received from the shop.

Could anyone trace the route from MapMyRun and post the link here?

Hey -

Wow - it seems like there is a run almost everyday with a dedicated group of evening runners. Very cool.

I just came to Singapore less than 48 hours ago. Can I just 'show' up on Wednesday for this run? I'm new to Singapore and I'd love to meet some of you runners.

Additionally - to the previous posters comment, a 5k run is kinda short. Would anyone be willing to run a 10k or more with me? Let me know your thoughts!

    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...

    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
