North East Compressport Run 2015

Recommended Posts

Did u guys realised that the same group of foreign runners are going around to different local events to wipe up all the cash prizes ?

I managed to speak to one of them...in fact they don't go back to their countries...they travel around south east countries with their manager, stay at budget hotel...this week in Singapore, next week Malaysia, Thailand then Indonesia etc...you will see them in NTuc, 2xu run.

They are using running as a source of income for their living...not sure is it right ? They know that winning champions are easily for them. ASEAN runners are no match for them. The top guns go for standard chartered, boston...the lower class go for local events. Do we really need them to raise our running standard? Local runners are complaining with them around, they got no chance to win..

Countries like Thailand, Malaysia are beginning to ban them, or not to give cash as rewards....

Your comments...

Well, they could always do open/ closed categories to promote the local scene.....

But of cos its more mafan for the organisers esp smaller events.

Usually for small events like that. i seldom hear organisers putting in open and close category... in the past, there arent a lot of overseas runners coming in to sweep local events, except for the big races of course.... so i think this might be the trend now.... those organisers who are all time doing running events should look into this actually.... to give the locals some possible rewards for their effort

i thought we must always welcome foreign talent? Sometimes we need spurs in our hides so we can run faster.

Hi All

I doubt the record is out yet. As our vendor promised us 48hours while they tried to get it out by tomorrow.

Seeking your kind patience.

Just to clear the distance measured problem a bit. Joe, u mentioned before that Ur guys counyed 9.6km to 10.5km a loop before. The thing is, the distance is depending on the place the runner is running, those run on the outer edge will measure a longer distance, other than that, constantly shifting position to avoid collision can add some distance. So the usual method is to take the shortest, not the average to measure. It is like running 2.4km on a track, 6 inner most round is 2.4k, while 6 outermost round is much longer

My Garmin Fenix 2 tracked 20.14km.

Yea...saw a fellow tying shoelace so early in the race in the middle of the road. Come...I clap for you 👏

Hydration is 👍

Gel is 👍

Though I like Pocari than the sugar drink.

Loops here is as usual boring.

I must raise 1 point is that why the pacers balloons no timing. I must run near near to their bib to see their pace...but if I can run so close to them, maybe I won't need them either 😂

Overall I give this race a 7/10.

Points deducted for isotonic drinks, loops & pacer balloons.

Good job Joe !

My take is Joe is one of the rare race organiser that bothers to solicit feedback from this forum and actively respond to queries and suggestions (the other one I think is the Yellow Ribbon Run). The objective is clearly about community bonding and profit making is probably secondary. Compare this to other mega races like Standard Chartered Marathon, etc where profits is paramount and organisers like pink apple are commercial entities, I don't think the common runner's experience are ever considered (probably only for the elite runners).

looks like only community runs will be able to do this.... the others would not be bothered cause profit is still most important.... i think this is just something we got to take it

Joe, one more suggestion is to use color balloon to denote different goal timing as used in many races...

With your influence, can help to revitalize the Mount Faber Run which already defunct for one year ? Thank You.

Don't get me wrong neko, I was referring to Joe's 9 times repeated posting... not because he was in "cloud nine". This could be due to web server error or Joe saw many stars due to lack of sleep and under great pressure "lah"... :hot:

I also saw them with pain now, beer later. ... They were in a grp of 5 to 6... But split up halfway into the 1st loop....

The results didn't show how many in the category... and what is the distance for the splits. ...let's see when the final results are out, there will be more clarity

As if Joe double triple posting is not long enough, please don't quote him & increase the length furthermore 😂

Just a mention Joe, guess the few of us reading here will know is who...and Joe knows he is the Joe we are referring to 😃
