The weather is splendid. I have no issues with the air quality at all. Hydration is ample and i was so touched by the cheering from the supporters and public in the final 1km stretch. Got my PB for Marathon due to the cooling weather :) would love to do this race again next year!

Totally enjoyed the run!!

Awesome temperature, scenic running route, fantastic logistic and cheering crowd.

Along the way, on the Tsing Ma Bridge... I look up and saw an eagle soaring above majestically. No, I wasn't hallucinating.

Did my best HM, 30km and achieve my PB too.

The killer slopesss on the 1st half of the race probably killed my legs.

Calves and quads cramp up pretty badly at the last 10k.

I'm still walking with a limp until now but definitely a happy man!

Return to run? Sure!

Is there any FB or website I can find pics of 10K and HM? I found some in HKRunners.com, but most are the pics of FM runners.

Has anyone received a certificate mailed by the organizer? Is it supposed to be mailed by late March?

I saw a few of friends posting their certs on Facebook last week. Not sure if it is sent out by batches though. You might want to check with the organizer.

Anybody knows when is the next year event and the registration start date?

Can't seems to find it anywhere. It was such a good experience that I don't want to miss out the registration for next year's run.

HM got medals?

They have some sort of souvenir medals that they give out before the run during the race pack collection. I think FM might have some special medals.

    • actually, to run in any FM distance can be either as SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM VR 1 Session or SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM Challenges 2-3 Sessions depending on announcements... Surely, the Technology that would enable SCSM 2020 -  "Runners can create avatars for the Virtual Route" will be delivered by TCS (if this will be announced that TCS shall also return in 2020)...congratulations, TCS had won the Silver Stevie in Innovation in Entertainment for SCSM 2019 Offical Race App... yes, reported that the audio (audience cheering) with augmented reality of visual "route" with iconic singapore landmarks... if there is a virtual marathon route, meaning there should be a "designated" route...meant for Elites? meant for VR "selective" Runners or for ALL participants...TBA Well, let's say for now...hydration and nutrition points are virtual, so go and figure out how then to DIY on supplementing your personal hydration and nutrition points on your "preferred routes"...cupless or personal bottles...as long as you don't anyhow dispose any place...otherwise, @Lady Ice will virtually appear as an avatar and "gentle reminder" to Keep the Race Course Clean & Safe... wonder if her avator also include a tyre... Had seen many runners in recent days using the "ECP preferred routes" as for their SCSM VRs on weekends or SCSM Challenges on weekday... very obviously, these are SCSM Virtual Club members, warming up and earning Points and Badges for their effort... of course, uncle collected Points and Badges at non-crowded "preferred routes"...just collected VR4-5KM, tomorrow will "gun" time for VR4-15KM.. so what's next week VR5-??KM...hope it should be 20KM or 10KM (because not awarded yet) and 17KM (reminds uncle of banana and gel station aka checkpoint)...looking exciting.... So, are you gearing up for SCSM Grand Finale VR or Challenges?...no need to pay for 5km, 10km and 21km to register, you can howlian (show-off) your digital badges as evidence, and we can see your results as a Virtual Club Community.... Earn Your Running Points with Credits and How Lian with Pride on your Badges...still waiting for what?😀
    • really hope that the best athletes can represent Sg and not have internal fights amongst Committees and athletes.. 
    • these virtual races and challenges really will help runners to prepare for the finale.... but considering to run the FM distance alone without any spectators or water point can be a real challenge...
    • Standard Chartered Bank..renewed title sponsorship with Singapore Marathon until 2023...    
    • SRY who has a stake on future selection for 2021 SEA GAMES...in his FB..commented...   so ST Virtual Run finisher 175KM...can be called as Ultra National Athlete...lol  eat more🍿...who shall be the new SA Management Committee on 25 September...
