It would be nice if they also mark the hydration points on the map. I guess they are probably still planning them. 

But i like the new route so far, no heartbreaking bridge.. Hehe

I think they are combining hydration points with the aid station and everyone will go through Heartbreak bridge.

 

The route looks promising with like about 13K at Fort Rd/ECP loop, much shorter than the previous routing. Although everyone will be running together for the last 6k of their race.

Edit: I was blind, they are marked already. However, they haven't indicate whether banana and gel will be provided along the route.

The route need to run across Shear Bridge which is the heartbreaking bridge or your heartbreaking bridge is another bridge?

for your 2nd question, it depends how much you have trained so far and if it's gradual... and of course your training pace and the pace that you intend for the HM... If these 2 races are ran at easy pace, and if you have a strong base to your run over the years, why not... but you would need to ensure your following week need to taper back....

The problem is I do not have a strong base and hopes to build it up by joining the training runs. Haiz, maybe shouldn't take a risk, fitness level not there yet. 

Thanks. :)

Thanks for the articles, interesting way to simulate long distance effect without the actual pounding.

If you didn't purchase during registration, email the EO about it. With info such as pick up location and registration ID. They will call you in couple days for the payment.

Still can purchase the bus ticket even after you had registered. Just login to the Active account at the SCMS web site and still can buy merchandise.

Thanks for the info. Don't think I bought the bus ticket during my registration.

i am staying at queenstown which is quite close (3km+) to Orchard road. There is no pick up location at queenstown.

i feel like riding bike from the bike sharing company to save on taxi charge. Any idea any place near starting block where i can park the bike legally?

newer buildings might have the bicycle parking lots hidden in a corner... as for older buildings, might be harder to find... actually is there a need for legally parking of the bike from the bike sharing company? I thought legally means anywhere as seen from current situation... hahah....:roadrage:
