Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

To resolve the no gels or insufficient gels issue, the best solution is to give out bananas only (the cost saving can be reimbursed back for lower registration fees).

Do you think the greedy runners what to stuff his/her fuel belt with bananas ? :lolu:

But one high risk is possible of runners' fall due to misstep on the scattering bananas skin !!! Need better bananas skin disposal management !

Sorry. I have to disagree with you on this. Personally I'm not a fan of banana being given out during races cos its not the easiest thing to try digesting during a race. So I would still prefer gel over banana.

The fairest solution is to provide at least a gel in the race pack so that even the slowest FM runner will get at least one gel. But this has been suggested before and the organiser choose not to do it and rather go by the concept of 'fastest legs get first'. In this case, they can get by with providing a limited quantity of gel and get away with it.

Oops I donno where is my wrist band. Hahaha.

If I'm not mistaken, you can get one at the store. But I'm really not sure so maybe you want to call up the shop and asked first. Its a very cool memorabilia and definitely worth making a trip down. The engraving standard is very good. It will take around 5 mins for the engraving to be done (excluding the queuing time if any) so trying going during the off peak hours if you can.

I remember taking last year's Standard Charterer BKK Marathon, only bananas and fruits were given and not gels. As for me this not an issue as I always prepare more than enough gels just incase I might need it. Having a gel from race organiser is a bonus to me. However if the organiser mentioned gels will be given and there's not, it really looks bad on them.

I went down to Adidas Cathay yesterday to get my wristband engraved during lunchtime. No queue at all and it takes only 5 mins.

We tell them our timing and they engrave or they will check our timing from the SCMS web site? What if I tell them my timing is 3h 01 min , will they engrave it ? :turned:

They will ask for your bib no or name to check the official result site for the timing.

In any case, I dun see the point of engraving a time that is not yrs. Unless you intend for it to be gift for someone else or something.

They retrieve your timing by BIB number.

So we need to bring our SCMS bib as proof that we did the run?

Just tell them your BIB number. The engraving is just the timing without category or name.

Good reference..

Maybe u can appeal to admin to put it as a sticky ? It can attract more new runners to forum when they realised they can find their photo...

Anyonetried eating M&M chocolate for energy during the run?

I used to do that... Will wrap m&m ( those without peanuts) with aluminium foil and pack them for my long runs.

Nowadays, mostly gels... But still occasionally use them for my runs if there is craving :)

I brought a choco bar but it melted, does wrapping them in foil helped?

Remember the saying "M&Ms, it melts in your mouth, not in your hands" ? Well, its actually true. M&Ms won't melt. That's why its a favourite race food for Ironman races back in the "good old days".

    • that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
    • maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary... from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event. Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88 2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)... the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...) because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌
