I thought Queensway shopping centre is already selling new models of running shoes at 15% off?

More discount if its an older model. I just bought the Lunarglide 6 over the weekend. The discount is quite standardized. Every shop I ask also say 15%.

Maybe the Nike Lunarglide is still considered new that's why only 15%? I asked at least 3 stores all say 15%. And only 1 store had the colour and size I wanted.

New design/hot sellers normally less discount.

Older models better to get at factory outlets which offer huge discounts.

So you gonna take lots of pix w the characters? :D

The lines are always super long though!

I guess that's the one unique thing about SCMS SG! Run through USS...

Are there any other runs with similar benefits? Of course excluding Disney run :P

Last year I did a 21km instead of 42 @scm. IMO HM route is more interesting than FM.

But u will still have to face e upslope at sheare bridge.

But it is crowded w runners within e uss.limited running space. Only spread out after exit sentosa.

Not sure if you guys realised it or not ...

There's a series of engaging talks and useful training runs lined up to prepare runners for the SCMS 2014, and SGRunners taking part in the year-end marathon can make full use of these.

The talks will be given by experts in their respective fields, and you will be able to interact with and learn from fellow SCMS runners at the group training runs.

Here's more details of the official lead-up preparations for the race. Link Here.

    • Agree with you. I believe people who pull these stunts are only a small handful and they are non-elites runners. 
    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.
