    • uncle will predict that: WMM Season 2021/2022 (and given the entry period is always 1 year-ahead from March of 2020)...after I know this is still a preliminary idea but experience tells us that when a Minister open his/her mouth, the chance of it happening is probably 90+ % Singapore will take the 2021 mid-year slot (as announced). SDM might not be known internationally but due to marketing efforts of previous owner HiVelocity, they have sold the idea of "Largest Night Race in Asia" to this region ie. China, Taiwan, Malaysia etc. So definitely if any runner is talking of night race, SDM will come in the picture & not clone like Bangkok Midnight Marathon. Wish SDM all the best, for they are never "in" the International Road Race Circuit, more of local "regional recreational" race. Skip by those who don't really want to "Sleep Can Wait". SDM needs strong international marketing effort in order to win back HiVelocity's core supporters of Endurance Runners/Ironman/Triathletes. With China also able to "compete" in their own playground with night races, SDM simply is waiting for their death knell - Sleep Forever - RIP.
    • Me personally think that China is up & coming regardless of road races or trail events ie. UTMB etc. We will definitely see more & more Chinese runners. Plus point that is their sporting culture much stronger than ours. Political reason we will see a China marathon becomes one of WMM in the future & most like will be Chengdu Marathon. Rational Wanda Chairman's hometown is at Chengdu.

Of course SDM has much to improve as compared to SCSM & cut down silly mistakes like Water Not Enough. If not,  it will be like what you said Sleep Forever.
    • uncle ran on Nike Vaporfly running shoes     that comfortable feeling is the feather-lightness of the thickness of soles and carbon fibre plate... waterproof material wraps round feet...don't need to wear socks...almost feel "five-finger" wrap round legs...except sole is no longer Vibram. racing responsiveness indeed...running feet are charged for PB anytime... depending on individual runner's efficiency in his/her running gait, wear and tear of soles taken into consideration depending on the run terrain ...lifespan of 400km+  I seriously don't see why the shoe should be banned. Make no sense at all. If technology can improve one's timing or feel good factor, it should be allowed in my opinion. If technology in run can make runners feel runner's high all the time by running more efficient..why banned? ...maybe only for the Elite Runners for good Sportsmanship. 😀 More on Nike Vaporfly...             Note: uncle is not sponsored by Nike, nor brands like New Balance, Asics, Adidas...uncle is a barefoot minimalist..and uncle just "thrown" out Five-Fingers Vibram due to wear and tear and spring cleaning for the Lunar New Year...😁
