Wow! My body always forces me to sleep after an early morning HM. Surprisingly, I can still fall asleep easily on that night.

Look at this year's finisher tee!! Black for FM individual and blue for Ekiden. They are separating these 2 categories more distinctly than past years... which is correct.. else my friend who took part in Ekiden will always say she got to wear the 42.195km tee too when she ran 6km... :hot:

Lai lai... comments? I felt the addition of Singapore at the back is good but the 42.195km word seemed a bit too "loud"...like very haolian(proud)

Noobie prefers big. In fact bigger than proposed design is better.
Important for all the marathon noobies as a sign of affirmation they no longer running noobs :)

I remembered in your Sundown Marathon blog your commented that the distance indicated on the finisher medal is too small. So too small cannot see, too big becomes too hao lian....aiyoh...

Seriously, size is relative and there is no satisfying anyone. If it is too loud or small, and you are not comfortable with that, then can just give them away...So many people wearing finishers on the streets nowadays that it doesn't really matter anymore, nobody is going to judge anyone wearing for wearing a finisher...

medal and finisher tee is different mah... finisher tee would wear out to public... medal would not mah....hahah...

anyway, no matter what, as long as the finisher tee is earned, it will be super nice when you receive it in your sweaty hands...hahha

Personally, I think it's OK for a FM finisher tee to be loud.

What I dislike is the 'loudness' of the some shorter distance HM, 10K and even 6K. The worst offender is of cos the now defunct Jurong Lake Run (6K and 10K).

This yr finisher tee from 2XU and Eco Run are super nice. Not too loud.

Bit too loud to my liking but ok lah... like what they said "then what's the point of finisher tee?"

 

This year 2XU finisher tee is super nice, bit regret not signing up for the HM.  Pocari sweat run finisher tee couple years ago also super nice.

I do agree that the finisher tee is almost of no value, bec everyone on the street can own one. Try going to a local gym u feel more xian, all the people wearing the same event tee, Army half, Standard Chat, in parks, in jogging track, its seems a bit Gay too...haha.

nowadays people are smarter, and more techno-savy, our days we will so called endure wear the event singlet or finisher tee for once even we dun like it for the race day. Nowadays the teens will not even wear the event singlet or Finisher tee and sell them for good money via "carousel" or online, one singlet can easily fetch $15, finisher tee, $40-$50 each. So the event tee is actually a $$$ tool to sell to others. 

But still there is a group of so called stubborn people that die die like to wear the event singlet and then after event, throw them aside or use as pyjamas. I have learn the smart way, sell them via carousel already bec the event singlet and tee really worth nothing when u see so many youngsters wearing it.

this is really a sad thing but to each his own.. I am sure there are still many out there who keeps their finisher tees in their cupboards although they never wear them... I think runners would not bear to sell their event/finisher tees from more well known marathons with stricter cut-off times..:punk:

For all the flak about the degradation in value of the finisher tees, i still like them though. I'll never say no to it. Although i don't wear them for runs or workouts, they are still good to be worn at home or as pajamas. I've kept every single finisher tee i collected since 2008....i've never bought any home wear since hahaha

I keep all the finisher tee in cabinet without opening it. I will take the oldest finisher tee to wear it unit it wear out , then it time to take the next oldest one to wear.

    • there's no point getting the medal / finisher tee when runners didnt even get to complete their race
    • This road restriction would definitely affect those who are in the 2nd/3rd wave and those on the brink of running about 2:20-2:30hrs HM taking into consideration that each wave might be flagged off at 10mins apart... looking at the route, the 21km mark should be near to the barrage area. So it could be that the diverted runners would not run the entire city route towards MBS or they make a U-turn back to ECP to complete some of the remaining distance or they would U-turn back while running past garden by the bay which is still within the PCN... unsure yet, I think all would know that day and I am sure there will be runners who feedback these vigorously on their social media pages after the race...
    • This is one of those instances where I think Pink Apple is doing a bad job in terms of planning. Of course, we understand that there's restriction in terms of road closure etc which may be why it's necessary to have the diversion point in the first place. Still, regardless of the reasons, the onus is on Pink Apple to come up with a 'diverted' route that does not prejudice the slower runners. The diverted route should not be shorter and hence disqualified the runners who do not reach the diversion point by the cut off time. Slower runners should not be disqualified at the organisational convenience of Pink Apple. Of course, there will be some who may argue that those who cannot complete an HM in 2h 45m has no business attempting the 32K but the point is moot. If the intended pace is indeed meant to be sub 7.8 min/k then the cut off time should have been adjusted accordingly and highlighted so that potential participants can make an informed choice.  We also need to remember that the 2h45m cut off applies for those who start in the first wave (typically the faster runner who will have no problem meeting the cut off). For the slower runners that start in the subsequent waves, they will have lesser time to reach the diversion point by 0745 hrs. Also, for those who are diverted and run a shorter course, I dun think they will be very happy to be shortchanged or to wear a polo finisher proclaiming them to be '32.195 km Finisher' when they did not run that distance. The difference must be significant enough for the diverted runners to be excluded from ranking.  Ultimately the biggest mystery is the absence of such an arrangement last yr. 
    • Went to their facebook page and someone has indeed raised the question regarding the diversion point, this is the official reply: Hi there, if you miss the cut off time for the diversion point, you will be disqualified in terms of ranking as your distance completed will be different from those who were not diverted. In this case, you will still receive your Medal and Finisher polo when you complete the race.

      However, if you miss the category cut off time of 6 hours to complete the entire race, you may not receive your Medal and Finisher polo. Hope this clarifies
    • I think diverted doesnt mean those who do not meet this timing will be disqualified, just need to take another route? Anyway, in this case, I guess I'll probably be one of them.  Edited: Just read the race booklet, it indeed means disqualified if reach this point later than 7.15am... zzZZZ.. Wondering if there is a mistake as the cut off timing is 6hours, meaning 3hours+ for the remaining 11km?
