Very interesting changes to this run this year!
First of all, an evening run will definitely attract more runners who are not keen to wake up early for a run.
Second, runners will be ranked in their 10-year age category bracket, and each will have their own podium trophies, making sure that more runners are recognized for their love for running.
Third, the race route is released during registration, which is definitely the right thing to do. While the routes are nothing new, they still manage to inject some creativity into ensuring that there are some fresh elements into it.
The only drawback is as per what Lonewolf mentioned, price. No doubt there are more entitlements to justify the increase in price, I would also prefer keeping it more to a no-frills and keeping the registration fees lower.
Rather than calling it the real "Sundown" (entire run is not ran in the dark), I would say this is the real "Marina Bay run" (both also start at Gardens By the Bay East) if they are able to provide with better support and logistic management Epic ESR.
Wah got running backpack, not bad.
Evening start time, no need to wake up so crazy early and still have sufficient time to take public transport home unless something goes wrong.
Fast runners may be able to do 21km + 12.8km/6km categories and forget about Newton Challenge.
