Website: The Colour Run Singapore

Q: WHAT!?!?
A:
The most colorful 5k in Asia!

The Festival of Colors Run is one part HOLI, one part RUNNING and a whole lot of FUN!

Q: HOW?
A: You will start off white as a ghost and as you run we will reward you for each kilometer you complete with a blast of color. By the time you reach the finish line you will look like you had a fight with a rainbow and lost.

Q: WHERE?
A: We would love to color all of Asia right now but like Lao Tzu says, "A journey of a thousands miles begins with a single step." We are starting our journey in Singapore and will be spreading to other cities from there.

Q: WHO
A: This run if for anybody and everybody.

Sorry, NO pets allowed. Perhaps Rex, Roxy and their buddies can join us in the future, but for now, the pleasure of running in this event is only for humans.

Q: Why?
A: WHY NOT!?!? It'll be so much fun!

Comments:

I read from the paper today about a Colour Run - a 5K non-competitive run where colours are thrown at you at designated checkpoints by volunteers.

Nothing has been finalised yet but the registration fee apparently cost US$40 in the states.

Honestly maybe I'm a stick in the mud but I really dun understand the pt of this run; nor do I find having coloured powder thrown at me fun. :rolleyes2:

And to pay that much for a 5K non-charity run? Are they mad?? :startle:

So is anyone really interested in this run - seriously??

Sentosa? Oh no, I am guessing $60 to $70 for this 5km run. :turned:

I see only 2 colors; 1 red ($10) +1 blue ($50) = $60

hahaha

Sentosa seems be the place now for all those jaded, seasoned runners bored with the usual road race and with deep pocket. First you have that 'Race the Dead'. And now this. Let's see who win the title 'The Most Expensive 5K Race in Singapore'. RTD was $65.90. I think Colour Run wont be too far off (they did say US$40). :money:

OMG all slots for both days sold out within 3 hours.

:startle: Goes to show that Singapore indeed has a lot of carrot heads waiting for event organiser to be chopped! :money:

The biggest concerns I have is the knock-on effect on the registration fee for other races. Imagine we were commenting that the Race the Dead, ST Run in the Park and Colour Run are pretty expensive but they are sold out relatively quickly. So this tell the race organiser that they can comfortably raise fee and 'they will come'. :shok:

$50 for a 5km run that has no prizes and timing is pretty expensive, unless one is taking part not as a run but more of a 5km colorful carnival. And to think that all slots were snapped up within 3 hours of commencement of registration :phew:

Anyway, this is one run which i think that no one will be in any hurry to complete. After paying so much and just chiong all 5km within 25 mins is a really bad ROI!!! LOL

Saw on their facebook page comments that some participants had successfully asked for a full refund.

If it comes to that... at least they are willing to give you a full refund.

    • This is not the first time I had joined a race organised by Tampines Central CSC. But in many ways, this is probably the worse I had attended. Not that it's very badly organised but given the breadth of experience Tampines Central CSC has in organising races, you expect them to put on a better show and take care of some very basic things.  #1 Very poor pre-race communications. Near zero participant interaction at event Facebook page. #2 No event guide. No race program.  #3 No cup at hydration points. 500ml water bottle handed out to runners needing a drink. #4 No baggage deposit service.  #1 peeves me the most. For goodness sake, if you want to maintain a public FB page, pls have someone to respond to questions and queries and interact with participants. If not, why even bother? A lot of questions left on the FB page were just left unanswered and many who signed up were clueless about basic things like race pack collection details, flag off time, race route etc. Race Pack Collection details were posted 1 day before the actual collection. Race routes were only posted on 23 Feb. #2 is not a show stopper but you expect basic things like race route, water points details, flag off times to be available with the race pack. I am sure many of those who signed up does not even know that there was a lucky draw (even though it was printed on the poster). MC did a good job in reminding everyone about it though. #3 Again basic stuff. I had seen other races when this is done when hydration runs out for the slower runners and a lot of runners just chunked the whole bottle away after taking just a few mouthful. Very wasteful! Thankfully, this did not happen. Probably because the number is small and the runners who joined this race are more considerate and gracious.  I took a bottle at the first water point and run with the bottle for almost the entire race. It's not the most fun thing to do. I mean if I want to run with a water bottle, I would have brought along my hydration belt. I do not think it's unreasonable to expect races to provide runners with cups at hydration points (BYOB races exception of cos). The more I think about it, I think the decision to give a whole bottle to runners was probably deliberate in an effort to reduce littering on the race route. In that aspect, it works because I think I only see one bottle of water being discarded carelessly. And of cos, no cups used at hydration points means no cup litters to worry about.  If my suspicion is correct, then perhaps the CSC can think about sourcing for smaller bottles of water instead (250ml bottle). It's easier to run with a smaller bottle and there is probably less wastage.  #4 is a major inconvenience especially as this is one of the items those who signed up for races would consider as 'basic service'. Of cos, it is the race organiser's prerogative not to provide such a basic service as long as it is made clear to potential participants before they signed up for the race. I only found out about this 3 days before the race and I had to adjust my plan. I cannot imagine what would have happened if I had turned up for the race with my usual backpack. I would have to run with it for the whole race! I wondered how many people were caught off guard by the 'no baggage deposit' service. Probably quite a few from my observations. The above are areas for improvement for the next race - Coney Island National Day Run. I hope Melvin (Vice-Chariman of Tampines Central CSC?) can take note. Overall, it's a decent race experience because of the relatively small number of runners and the always enthusiastic volunteers. For a group of part-timers (?), they definitely do a better job than XE (then again, XE is a joke and kind of a low bar). Personally, I still think they do a better job than some so-called professional event organiser (no names but you probably can guess who I am referring to! ) 
    • If you go for the non-competitive 10km then you still get medal + finisher tshirt + singlet and it comes at $49.50 per race for bundle. sounds quite reasonable no? personallu i don't care about the timing, I use my own app anyway for timing haha

    • Marketing or planning? If marketing then I don't understand why it will take a few years. Planning takes time but also no need that long bah. I doubt it will turn into a night race anytime soon. Logistics are more challenging to manage and so far Ironman have not proven itself to be able to handle them well yet.  
    • Hows things there bro. Hope the weather is good and you will be able to get your PB tomorrow... good luck and have a good race.. enjoy the marathon major !!
