This year Sundown flag-off was 2230 for 10km and 0030 for HM & FM at Nicholl Highway ... Last year it was at late evening flag-off, not so bad on the timing.

Running after midnight is going against your circadian rhythm which IMO is bad for your body. Those running ultra have my most respect!

I ran the ultra 100km in 2011 and I got super high fever next day after reaching home. But the sense of pride and glory is still there for completing the race up till now, I am so proud of my achievement. Guys, try the ultra for once in your lifetime.

I've completed 6 FM to date, but still have not mustered enough courage to attempt an Ultra yet.....total respect to all who had completed and also to those embarking on one :bow: . I'll still stick to FM for now.

I've completed countless HMs todate, and after each HM, all the grand ambitions to try for FM will dissipate... Full of admiration for FM runners, not to mention Ultra!!

Just like you, all the grand ambitions to try for an Ultra dissipate after each FM for me LOL...in fact, many of us will have this question in our head "what on earth did i get myself into?" half way into most races when we've ran to a stage where its too far to give up, and too tired to push on hahaha.

Met a friend yesterday. He has just come back from India running the Himalayan 100 mile race http://www.himalayan.com/sr1.html . His participation and completion story is really fascinating to hear in person, but what totally blew me away was that of the 53 finishers, there were a person who was 73 years old and at least 6 or 8 of them in the late 50's to late 60's years in age. The range of finishing times was from 16 hours to 40 hours.

That gives me both inspiration and hope to at least do the Half in the Sundowner and then the full in SCSM 2013

When I was finishing the 84km in 2009, I told myself, it will be my last ultra. In 2010, 84km again and I told myself the same thing. I'm 2011, 100km, same thing. During all these races I have cursed at myself for torturing myself. But every year when the registration comes up, I have the urge to clickety click on the longest distance... Is there a self exclusion list (ala casino style) for ultra running? Lol.. :P
