Yes. Last time I ran the FM there were three bridges which runners had to climb. There is a steep climb coming out of the tunnel, and several hills during the last 5km.

Well I hope train at upr and lpr will be enough hahaha (:

Thanks :) . 

It's my first time running overseas and I thought confirmation of payment will do. I'm puzzled why there was no replies to my email.  Anyway I have already bought my air tickets. Will ask my hk friend to call the hotline tomorrow :).

Given the lack of time, just bring your payment confirmation which should state your race details. I remembered the letter being good to have but not critical. Do check with their information counter during race pack collection to clarify your mailing address. If not, you might not be able to get the finisher cert.

Thanks all for the suggestions. The organisor have replied that I will be able to collect the race pack by showing my passport at the information counter. 

 

By the way, I did a check. The temperature this weekend could dip to 12 degrees. ?

Clocked a 3:48 down there(pb). Route was like roller coaster. Good weather.

-Too little toilets for such a big event that attracts tens of thousands. I queued for 20mins and behind me got a dozen of ppl. And fm and hm merging caused a human jam that forced me to slow down...

Route details.
First 6km it'd very easy to get carried away and to chiong as got slight downhill. But at 8km mark got uphill at bridge > tunnel up and downhill. After 10km it's uphill mostly until 18km 
From 18km to 21.1km downhill all the way. Many ppl tend to chiong down there.from 21km to 35km mostly downhill but got slight uphill.  31k onwards got 2 more tunnels to go through  . 39km to 41km got uphill 
Oh I didn't mention got 3 or 4 bottleneck turns and Garmin reading can go haywire down there as you run thru tunnels 

About 15000 finished scmhk fm.

Congrats to Rachel see and Jasmine  goh who hit sub 3 down there and qualify for SEA games!

Was it true the news of runners collapsing at finish line including fatality(ies)?

    • Ah yes, Terry Fox!  He was quite famous after the first running boom (sometime in the 70s to early 80s) I even saw a TV movie about him when I was in grade school (OMG, My age is showing 😵 LOL) And to think he was an amputee! 
    • I’m usually self supported when I do my solo LSDs, so I can manage up to a marathon’s distance (ultras will need at least some form of support however, at least for me) . I can’t replenish at any public faucet like you guys do over there, but there are stores everywhere.  I can also lug at least 2L in my hydration vest if I’m in the mood to shout:  “THIS... IS… SPARTAAAAA!” 😜 😜 😜 but I haven’t been that motivated lately. At least not since this pandemic broke out.  Nothing beats the convenience of having a route clear of cars, and hydration at least every 5km (IAAF rules) in an actual organized race though, but these just won’t be possible for the time being so we’ll just have to be patient. I look forward to the day when they find a vaccine to this plague… and we’ll all be partying, cheering and giving high fives after crossing the finish line once more. 😊
    • Incredible feat! The other person I know of running a marathon every day for a cause was Terry Fox.
    • I’m sharing this interesting story of a Korean monk doing a 5,200 km charity ultra run from LA to New York City, running 50km each day. He was forced to halt it in the meantime because of the pandemic: https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/culture/2020/06/141_290579.html    What struck me most was that where he expected prejudice, he found only kindness, and that the ones who had the least to give... actually gave the most: “I received heartwarming care from those in poverty” I guess it’s really true that what you sow, so shall you reap. I'd like to read more about this guy and his story when he continues his run. 👍
    • Thank you for sharing the hints, totally agreed. So I need to make a good plan on the routing. 😊👍   Yea, in a race of last year, the experience of a lot of runners has proved that... 💪🤣
