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.

    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
