Brooks Marina Run 2015

Recommended Posts

Interesting.....Groupon deal for running events. Is it genuine?

Of cos it is. Not the first yr this run is having such 'pattern'. Some other races has also been offered such 'patterns'.

The rub is that sometimes those who registered 'normally' paid more than those who registered through groupon.

No need to search. Just stick to sgrunners and I'm sure some kind souls will definitely post any lobang they come across. :)

but the thing is such lobang usually is after the early bird...... what if there isnt such lobang.. then end up paying the normal rate if really keen for the run....

How would u feel if you sign up, pay the normal rate and then this sort of 'pattern' comes up with prices on par with early bird price? Wont u be pissed off?

How would u feel if you sign up, pay the early bird rate and then some 'promotion' rate comes up with prices cheaper than what you paid during early bird? Won't u be pissed off?

Of cos u would. No one likes to feel like a suxer or carrot head (unless he has too much money or enjoyed being chopped) and we have been joining races long enough to know that such 'patterns' happen - often enough we know which organiser and which race will come up this kind of 'pattern'

Is there anyway that we can complain or voice out about such things?? Need a joint effort...

No use complaining. There isn't enough of us here to make a difference.

Only way is just to vote with your wallet and forget about joining races with such 'patterns'.

Of cos sometimes there are other over riding considerations that may compel you to join races despite the 'patterns'.

If the organiser do a relatively good job despite the 'pattern' then you may not feel cheated. But if they do a lousy job I think you have a right to be pissed for being screwed twice over.

yup, so it had been really helpful to read thru this forum.

thanks!

Yes.... For the heart shape.... but I sign 10km only.... cause the design and race experience in 2014 only convinced me to take part at most 10km. ....

I saw this on the website

"All runners who complete the 10km within the cut off time will each receive a Brooks Marina Run 2015 finisher medal (Valentine’s Day edition) and a Brooks Finisher T-shirt."

I thought Newton Penang was funny that Veteran was at 36 yrs old. Now Marina Brooks veteran is 34 yrs for female. But why disparity between male and female?!?! Haha
