So where can i buy fuel belt Helium?

Is Queensway shopping center selling ? and also at a cheaper rate like running shoes?

you can get them in Running Lab or Moovsports (http://www.moovsports.com).

I am Nathan user. 4 bottle can be quite a weight to carry during long runs and they do bounce around. Try to get something tighter as the elasticity reduce over time. I have been using my Nathans for about 3 years now and have shorten the belt quite a few times by sewing the 'excess' together and adding additional velcro.

Bought a new one. The latest design allows you to adjust the waist size.

What is your priority? Weight or Hydration?

At the start of the run, the weight is of no concern as you would start fresh. By the time you hit 10km, you may have drunk 2 of the bottles already, so the weight is reduced as with your fatigue level.... make sense?

Trained by SAF, I can go running for 10km (can push to 12km) without intake of water (of course must have water parade prior to start of run)... thereafter I drink like a cow.

Actually in Singapore, no need water belt.... just keep $2 in your pocket will do.

haha, won't need $2 during run.. need more water points .. i feel that running long distances require lots of running momentum .. means no stopping as far as possible.. in my case i think this applies to me... so i'm thinking of getting hydration belt..

Yes u are right beginning the weight will not matter much....hmmmmm

I can feel the diff with 4 bottles loaded, both in terms of weight and the bouncing. So, I am most of the time on 2 bottles and i top up during toilet break. If needed, i load empty bottle with Gatorade powder and then top up when I need them to reduce the weight.

Hi,

I do my LSD at east coast. With the scms coming up soon, I am also increasing my mileage. I dont normally hydrate but gathered from the forum that it is very necesary.

I don't like the idea of belts so would like to know if anyone has tried cash instead and easing at the many drink points along the way to buy drinks.

The time slowed down, to me, is negligible in a 20+k run. But what do you think?

There are many water/tiolet point along ECP. The water breaks are rest break as well. Only problem comes when you go beyond NSRCC towards the coastal road towards Changi. There is a long straight and boring stretch that does not have any water point (6-7k). Within ECP (Fort Rd to NSRCC, to and forth is abt 20km), there are water point everywhere.

I've been using the 3 bottle Amphipod hydration belt for the pass 2 years.

Was useful when I 1st started running & even until now when I'm doing only max 21km.

I carry as below for my own runs.

5-10km - 1 bottle

10-15km - 2 bottles

15-21km - 3 bottles

However, I realize that it bounces too much with 3 bottles. Especially true once the elastic portion wears out.

Therefore, now I'm looking to get a hydration pack for runs longer than 15km.

Note that these runs I'm referring to are my own runs. Not those event races where there are water points.

Because during your own runs, the route might not have any water points for you to buy drinks or you might not want to stop & affect your momentum.

oops..was actually looking at the amphipod to replace my aged Nathan. Guess, when the elasticity of the belt starts to wear off, the best it can hold is 2 bottles w/o too much boucing. Is the catch still good?

    • Why WMM over IAAF? Think you'll find that is down to how WMM markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. Especially with medal chasers. Look at who is in this exclusive club....2 major financial hubs, and with Brexit - perhaps Berlin is set to be a financial hub. Assume being part of the WMM will also come with a fee. So between IAAF and WMM, the STPB would find WMM more attractive and this would give Singapore special recognition in their want to progress with greater sporting achievements. Joseph Schooling's Olympic win, allows more to dream big.
    • Uncle salutes to Michelle Sng for her best effort for the Nation with this interview of her painful and also exiting moments when she took up High Jump for Woman because of her passion of "why not?" (info: https://mothership.sg/2018/01/michelle-sng/) A prodigy (she says she is not), a performance High Jumper (she says is unexpected), "no pain no gain" and with tears - she had to go through as her journey - making a come-back, an unwilling Champion (humbly just do my best), and she did it for the Nation because there was no representative for the sports she loved and she has passion about it because she participated as a school-girl - just for the sure fun of it. Thank you, Michelle. You are always the most inspired High Jumper (Gold) and aptly the high jump mama...a respect and inspiration for all here. We wish you the best in everything your heart desire.  What's next - SA: a SA-ga-ble NSA.
    • You are right! It is already very good timing. I can't even dream of that!  
    • Why is the Authority (whoever the Stakeholders) are so hype about "Platinum" label aka WMM. Cities/Countries which are ready for "Gold" label upgrading to "Platimum" aka WMM (Selection)   Closer to us, Asia: Tokyo Marathon 2020, Major WMM, Host of Olympics 2020 a selected trial for WMM World Championship. Runners can qualify for the 2020 race by nailing the following times, broken down by age group: 18 to 34 years old (3:00 for men, 3:30 for women) 35 to 39 (3:05 for men, 3:35 for women) 1) Marathon: 7 hours; Wheelchair Marathon: 2 hours and 10 minutes.2) 10km Race: 1 hour and 40 minutes; Wheelchair 10km race: 35 minutes.* The time limits are based on the gun time.* The cut-off time will be enforced at each checkpoint due to reasons of traffic control, security, and event operation.* Runners who fail to pass through the checkpoint before the cut-off time will be disqualified from the race. Furthermore, runners who lag excessively behind the cut-off time pace may be stopped to leave the course at anytime. Maximum Paricipation: 37,000 (Marathon - both HM and FM) So wonder why, "Evening Run will actually attract More" Participation and Qualifiers. When we are "selected as trial", hopefully from 2020, 2021 cut-off time naturally will 7 hours or less "to finalise the trial" to entry WMM Collaborative effort of the Authority with the Nation must be part of this effort as shown by the Government of Spain. That will be missing communication in 2019 SCSM. "Simi sai is WMM?" "How would a sai tang run WMM benefit the Public?" "Why the ultra-national level of Road Closure is beyond the F1 Night Race and NDP?" "Who is that Authority that Grant the Permission?" Leave the matter to the Authority to settle to the Public. As a run community which provides the forum is to info, listen, seek levels to fill the gaps of what is and what is not (fake news); Advise to running partners (newbies or those who have passion to run to live ACTIVE and to compete safely that includes injury management issues - "no pain no gain" is never advocated); Advice on "Race Routes" by race organisers (quality vs non-compliance; sanctioned competitive vs recreational/grassroots), example, Sundown Marathon, offered "previous" routes, hydration and nutrition issues, who's who in the race organiser profile; Pricing;  Greater Earth Sustainability, Education (Injury Management, Nutrition and Hydration, Running Gears, Training and Race Strategy).  Invite previous forummers  (founders) who once "created" SgRunner forum from 2005/7 to 2010 to be such active running communities. Notice from "Guest List", they are viewing events as well as chats of the past, which uncle fondly remembered, "Woodcutter Trial Run" was one of the past events which uncle took almost 1/3 of Forum Thread (as usual - silly chat) to explore and hilarious encounters of wild animals and "ghostly" encounters.  PM and invite them to share, and just say Hi (1 post). Some of these previous forummers posted like more than 10,000 to 15,000, meaning they had contributed for at least a decade worth of knowledge and experience. Please, join us also. Thank you. Uncle ends with this motivational reason why the Authority wants us to believe in WMM is the better way to upgrade the status of running for passion with this challenge : (marketing hype - of course lah) For those who are able, Go for IT! Yes, bring your national flag along. You deserved it!     
    • Central to the topic of interest: Road Closure and Who is the Authority (Decision)?         What is expected in Road Closure for Event?           What is important in IAAF Road Race Label Rules for Road Closure.       SCSM is driving towards the "Platinum" label as entry for WMM in 2021. fyi, when you sign up for run race, previous experiences of "route" from sgRunners' feedback is important. Running on walking path is never "encouraged", unless this is a recreational run especially at PCN Connectors. Expect that Routes sharing with Bikes and PMDs will have a set of rules from 2020. Yes, Bikers and PMDs can also complain about Runners about their entitlements.
