Xiamen International Marathon 2011

Recommended Posts

Why the main site is not updated - I guess only the XMIM organising committee has the answer. It is interesting to know the extensive planning as well as organisational behaviour - that CITS (China International Travel Service Limited) who leading the national interest always publishes the event online about one to two months prior to the event organiser who leads the munciple interest. Anyway, I suspect the main site will be updated in September if not October which is about 3~4 months prior to the event. Main site update timing is actually about right i.e. neither too early nor not too late... cheers!

I see, thanks.

I thought it strange that CITS website displays detailed information before the official website. And I wondered if the information provided by CITS was accurate because 1st Jan 2011 is a holiday.

Two of my colleagues and i are going, hope more can join us? Leaving on 31 Dec, back on 3 Jan

Still waiting for hotel confirmation as the rate for 2011 not out yet.

I contacted the organiser, also wrote to them, they are responsive and friendly.

They were also awarded the IAAF Gold label.

Understand whole city come to cheer you, should be a good experience.

would have joined u guys if the event falls on Saturday rather than Sunday ... Having it on Saturday allows me time to back to work on year-end closing :wacko: ... anyway, i understand it should be a nice run and i try not to miss the next one ... so u and whoever taking part, enjoy!

    • 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
