This is one of my streak races since 2014 and I agree that the route was not the best in term of planning and improvement can certainly be made. I dun understand why they would want to route runners on the narrower side decks (in front of MBS) when there is a much wider path to run on (which most races used). The initial bottleneck near Esplanade could probably be avoided if they close the road along close the road along Raffles Ave.
It was a nice change from the usual morning runs so I enjoyed the race even though it was not one of my better races.
This is one of those races on the calendar that always has interesting post-race activities so last evening was no exception. I always enjoy the panel interview and discussion. Nice to just chill and relax after the race to soak in some good pointers and advice.
And of cos the highlight is the lucky draw. Quite surprised at how few re-draws was required for the winner actually.
Doesn't seem like a big turnout for this run. Only 2 waves for 5km. How many are there for 10km?
These runs are more a social event than a serious, competitive race for many.... so the majority will always be casual runners and walkers.
