I second that, instead of laying tarmac through natural areas(like many of the park connectors), it will be really cool if we can have more trail tracks instead.

yah, they should really turn the green corridor to one, not lay tarmac over the train tracks, but convert it to a real trail linking to bukit timah nature reserve. all in, will be able to host our first 100mile (166km) race!!

the rails along the KTM railway will be handed over to SLA, and inside info is that development of condo and commercial uses...PCNs are handled by NParks, and if you want a green corridor, visit new tampines eco trail park, just a short distance from tampines sunplaza can run 100km ultra trail runs in loops...that one is the best NParks can do and one of the most expensive projects to clear swarmpy land to a recreational green park...5-o) god brother-in-law is SLA CEO said,"please don't speculate, the masterplan blue print has decided."

Sounds like they will probably build something economically beneficial on it since they exchanged the "Green Corridor" for some land in the city area (Marina South and Rochor). Convert it to trails and just let vegetation take over? Highly unlikely. They will probably not only be tarmac on it, but boulders of concrete too. And they will certainly like the idea of expanding the "Green Corridor" by clearing of the surrounding vegetation.

I say, don't hold your hopes up too high. Just look at Bukit Brown. Thankfully, memories still last a lifetime.

    • 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??? 🤔 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!" 🥴
    • I’m not a local, so I didn’t know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover  19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
