Going to sign up for the 10km run next year as it's more of a holiday trip rather than a running race trip. Will it be good to get hotels near the end point? Any recommendations?

If you can't really walk far after your run, it would be best to stay somewhere near the end point. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but my impression is that accommodation rate is slightly more expensive there? Otherwise shouldn't matter where you stay as start and end points are very accessible by trains.

Had a nice run, managed to run under 4hr, a pb for me.

Weather was wet and cold due to the, on off heavy rain.

Merging of the half and full at 28k was terrible, massive congestion. Slow down my speed. Hydration was abduntant, both for isotonic and water.

Overall a nice experience.

Was there a change in route? Don't remember merging in the past.

Ran the full marathon too and I agreed with lumiq. Wet weather and roller coaster slopes but still a very enjoyable run. Really like their.hydration stations, supplies of chocolates, bananas and cherry tomatoes.

This is pertaining to the 10km run.

Majority of the route is on the expressway, which had a number of slopes - up, down and side (literally got to lean to the side). Long upslope at the 5-6km mark, and a very short but steep upslope just after the 9km mark. Only 2 water points at the 4km and 8km mark, and are really 'water-only' points. Given the wet and cool weather for this year, it's still enjoyable. Just that there's no finisher medal (only full marathon finishers have it), but there's a nice finisher towel to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the run.

GPS watch recorded 10.1km, which was fine.

One thing to gripe about: the event tee. The design is not as nice as last year's (2015). This year's tee only featured the dates of the 20 SCHKM races, with a standard logo in front and wording at the back.

The 2017 edition of the SCHKM will be on February 12 2017, 2 weeks after CNY.

Was in the 2nd wave-off (6.45 am) for the FM.

Started to rain before start and getting heavy just 1-2 minutes before the wave-off.

Run was mainly in the 15deg +/- region plus occasional pouring rain, yes pouring. :coldb:

Route is the same as last year, lots of up and down slope.

Plenty of isotonic drinks/water point along the route.

Commit the same mistake as last year. Not drinking enough water until halfway mark.

It was so cool and raining that I don't feel thirsty most of the time.

2 "feedback" about the race,

1. One of the ugliest event t-shirt especially for a 20th anniversary race. Beyond description :growl:

2. At the end point, our check-in baggage was arrange neatly on the ground, in the rain.

When I retrieve the bag, my "dry clothes" for change, are already soaked through.

Have to take the MTR back to hotel, so no choice. Have to change into my wet wind-breaker only.

Overall still a very good race. :thumbsu:

Managed to cut another 9 mins off last year's PB timing. 8)

Return to race?? Yes, very certainly.

looks like a really wet weather throughout... cause i see some runner wore their raincoat all the way... or at least even till 16km.... the good thing is that it's not hot... they even gave out large packets of energy sports drinks instead of gels... those not used to it might felt too full... haha... i didnt really see a lot of slopes... but saw a few to convince myself that the race might not be a pb contender...

    • facts (published)... just eat 🍿.... SNOC is has a stake in the pending of the Court's decision...legal matters from SNOC against SOH were already in placed..."pending on the outcome of the ongoing Trial"...   if the Truth is 2min or 700m (Liew) vs 7min or more than 2 mins (Soh) is confirmed...then somebody is going to be answerable to why SOH was not selected to SEA GAMES 2019...to ensure that Mr Soh's allegations were "fully investigated and the truth be determined.".. everyone wants the "truth" to be determined...SNOC also wants the "truth" about its own investigations are not wrong but is the truth... as for SA's...it is totally different tiff.. more on what SA Executive Director Syed Abdul Maik Aljunied alleged defamation on SOH...so far SOH has won over SA (on some administrative documentation submission on his character that "has bad records" but so far delay until failure to produce evidence)...then SA Legal Team quitted and Director Aljunied had to use his own legal Team...more to admit what he said or claims were wrong meanwhile, SA President and Management Team had stepped down...tomorrow (Sept 25) shall be SA new Election (2020)...Soh's choice of SA Management Committee...will there be a nomination of SOH for SEA GAMES 2021..."nothing more than a GOLD result"... Winning against SA has a bearing on the outcome of somebody who quoted, "there have been numerous instances where Soh has displayed conduct that falls shorts of the standards of attitude and behaviour that the SNOC expects and holds its athhletes to"...what if there were no such records from SA on the standards of attitude and behaviour of SOH to start with...no evidence of SOH's breaching the rules, standards or attitudes...so if no, then why there is every REASON WHY SOH IS AND SHOULD NOT BE SELECTED FOR SEA GAMES 2019.. just eat 🍿....lah...it is going to be a lengthy one....maybe this Trial may extend till beyond SEA Games 2021....and guess who will be very upset/happy once again...SOH, SA, Liew, SNOC or Aljunied?
    • It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation  of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably.  My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship.  That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won.  I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley slowed down to a crawl and that cost him a medal. In his estimation, even if Ashley has really slowed down, it did not cost him a medal because his finishing time was a bit off from the medal timing.  SA probably slighted because they were the one who nominated Ashley for the award and raised the stake with its 'problem kid' to cease and desist. Of cos, SRY was never going to just roll over. And his further comments prompted Ashley to sue him for defamation. And here we are.  It all seems a little superfluous to me but of cos I'm not the one who feels he's been defamed. 
    • I think only Ashley himself really know if he did really purposely slow down or not.  While I admire SRY on his achievement and humility even as a champion, there could be chance he may have observed wrongly especially from a distance. Then this whole issue becomes just a misunderstanding.
