[Medal Hunters United] List of ELM Medal Races

Recommended Posts

I think the Safari Zoo Run was also a ELM medal race.

ohh..... from the photos of the medals, it seems like an elm... need someone who ran to verify....

I'm pretty sure it is not an ELM medal; but I'm still waiting for a clearer picture to confirm. I know the medal looks nice but you need to remember that an ELM medal is not just about nice medal design; but more importantly the quality of the medal. If you ask me, the design of Safari Zoo Run is clearly superior to that of the Marina Run.

Can someone who has the Safari Zoo Run medal confirms if its an ELM medal? It must have the 'ELM' stamped on the stem of the medal tied to the ribbon. Thanks!

Oh.. very nice. I will update the thread. Thanks!

It's going to be a great yr for ELM medal hunters. There were only 7 ELM races last yr. We already have 3 and it's not even March yet!

If the next Pink Apple race - Nathan City Race also issued ELM Medals, then I think we can come to that conclusion.

If that is the case, I will definitely be re-assessing my participation in some of Pink Apple races this year. :bling:

it sounds right to have a deal with ELM and get cheaper rates when they engaged them in all of their races... win win situation for them... for us.. depends cause pink apple can still up the cost.....

OMG! Even the 5K Carnival Run issued ELM Medals!! :startle:

What's happening? Has ELM swooped in and make an irresistible offer to all the race event organisers?? Unbelievable! :shok:

Certainly, din expects this as it was a semi-crappy medal last yr. Regret not joining! :fool::cray:

So medal hunters now...

See pink apple = sign up race? Haha

I like the way you think.. and I'm inclined to agree. :diablo: But it will still have to be a race I like doing. So for example, TNF 100 (a Pink Apple event) will probably not be under consideration. But everything else will probably be considered favourable if the schedule permits. :punk::punk:

After a flood of ELM races in the 1st quarter, we have been experiencing a drought since Mar but we finally have another ELM medal race.

Though HiVelocity still sux in many areas of the race, they never disappoint when it comes to the medal quality and design. :bling:

Its one thing you will probably not hear any complain about. Believe it or not, people complained about the colour of the finisher tee this yr! :nea:

    • @Lady Ice and @kohpapa Thank you for your warm advices and concern. I really appreciate it. Honestly, as of now from 1-10 the pain is 7. Yes, i will stop running and do walking instead. I still have 7 days to rest and recover. And hoping on the race day will be gone, If not I will take your advice to withdraw and wait for another time. The thing is that a bit disappointing to train for almost 1.5months then suddenly injured. 😭. If ever I can make it on the race day hopefully I can get my target 4.50hrs under.. 🤭 Once again thank you so so much gurus. Keep you posted. Gudnyt!

    • Well, I shall be ready in my 2XU for this coming 2019 SCSM Maiden Evening Marathon with an aging right leg (soreness) which I need to compress,  k-tape with knee-cap support. Expensive, yes.  If in triathlon (swim then cycle/run), it is necessary. For run? Depends. Yes, what if the weather is wet and rainy and you need warmth? Then a compression running suite will be an alternative. It is expected, a cooler, wetter evening for this maiden SCSM Evening Marathon. My decision is to gear up appropriately and minimise "discomfort" on my soreness on my aging right leg with compression, taping and knee-cap support. 2XU alternatives : Tried them before. Later, losses its "Compression" due to the material degenerating after numerous wears.   
    • Knowing that you are determined to do your first marathon without having the time to let your "soreness" heal and to recover, this is what will be recommended. However, if the pain on the calves are "extreme", please stop running and just walk. There is another Marathon in another time, and so better to be injury-free next time. "No pain no gain" is actually is not advocated in this running forum. However, many times, there are just "nursing" pain due to over training or even weather change which is cooler in the past days (wetter). If your desire in this first marathon is how to take care of the "calves" during the run, my suggestion and solution is to "minimise" the discomfort, and not healing. The rest of your maiden marathon journey will depend on the will and determination to finish the race which you have signed up for. 7-day counting, and just like you, I am nursing an aging right leg, which I also have to prepare to "compress" with tape and knee-cap support. As with a wetter day ahead, need to have a "compress" running gear to keep me warm during the night. Yes, that will be what I will be ready next week, SCSM 1st Evening Marathon. Best wishes, and listen to your body. Extreme pain is never encouraged to run. Let your heart and soul determines what is in your First Marathon.
    • Do not do any running until the soreness goes away. You can probably do walking without pain You might try a sports massage to go into your glutes and down the calf. This is so that you can ease off the tension from the back down. Tape on the day of the race (as provided by bro Koh Papa) or wear compression socks but be aware that you will need to take this easy, otherwise risk pain mid-way. If you do feel pain during the SCSM, then see if you can rest a little and let the pain go away....then walk with small steps. If you try to run again once pain has set in 'cos you will risk a DNF. Also change your mindset about the time you will get..... and if you want to achieve something, tell runners to please put their rubbish in the bin to keep the route litter free   Look forward to your report . Enjoy the night
