Wasn't there an option to sign up for all 4 legs for $199? Why din you sign for the whole bundle? 

Maybe you can try writing to Pink Apple to see if they will accommodate you. :pc:

 

At that time of registration, still unsure whether want to join all the legs.

if i were to park my car, where is the nearest legal parking area (e.g. hdb carpark)? Punggol side or Pasir Ris side? I am planning to do a slow jog to the starting point.

likely Pasir Ris side better, Pasir Ris Ave12, Blk710A HDB carpark. From there, there is a PCN along the canal, ~500 meters to starting point.

The PCN will be the best option to the starting area, don't use Pasir Ris Industrial Drive 1, the footpath ends before Pasir Ris Farmway and you have to walk on the road for quite a bit.

This is a BYOB Run. If I don’t bring any water bottle can I still participant ? It only a 10 km run and I think I can do without water.

so i'ts Coney Island trail run :D again

It already expected when they announced the starting point as Pasir Ris Farmway. I cannot find any trail except at Coney Island. The trail at Coney Island also is a easy running route.

Now I'm seriously worried about the date of Leg-4: 25th Nov, 2018, hopefully Swissotel Vertical Marathon will not be scheduled on the same day...

Nope. Wanted to wait for reviews of Leg 1 then decide but forgot about it.

Another unexpected hot event. Either the number of trail runners have increased, or these events really have limited number of runners.

Really unexpected for early closing of registration.

Early bird for leg 3 was supposed to end on 30th July, I thought we still have a lot of time to dilly dally.... 🤣

I think they might not get enough people signing up for the first run, I read in whose review there were like less than 1000 participants.

Trail runs typically have a lot less runners than road, especially 10km ones.

Very interesting. 

Still can register for the race on JRL.

Race 3 >> https://connect.justrunlah.com/race-registrations/king-of-the-trails-2018-leg-3-pulau-ubin/

Race 4 >> https://connect.justrunlah.com/race-registrations/king-of-the-trails-2018-leg-4-trail-blazer/

Race 3 + 4 Bundle >> https://connect.justrunlah.com/race-registrations/king-of-the-trails-2018-discounted-bundle-3-and-4/

I tried a mock registration for the bundle and it seems to be accepting registration. Not sure about individual Leg 3 and 4.

So those looking to sign up for this race, maybe can try the above links. Good luck

Completed the Race 2 yesterday morning. Nice weather and interesting route. "A trail race without raining isn't a real trail race..."

It was a just-nice rain...if thunderstorm downpour, ppl might hv a diff mode.   😃

A big mud puddle somewhere in the route, i think most runners got their shoes dirty. 😝

Overall, it was a good TRUE trial run.

It was a good "Introduction to Trail Run" if it could be compared to a book. Not too steep, not too muddy (some people might disagree), not too rocky, and not too much tarmac/concrete. The long stretch of flat rail corridor at the beginning was useful in getting runners warmed up and spreading the crowd out. The most muddy runs I encountered were the Salomon Trail 2012 at Tampines and The North Face 2013 (downpour during the start caused the rail corridor mud to turn creamy, yucks), someone even lost his shoe deep in the mud and was digging for it.

The tougher the race is, the more excited runners will be... 😆😆😆

So, the difficulty for last Saturday Bukit Timah run is considered to be 'entry level'...😭 Can't imagine the hard-level, I might die half way.

I still didn't recovered from the back pain and sour legs caused by this run, even at a much much slower pace than road HM run. Usually I can get fully recovered in 24 hours after a road HM...

Looks like trial run is really a fierce animal and very different from road run.

    • Bro -  sounds like you B****ing for the sake of it. It is clearly stated as a no frills event with a low price however there will be clear support to ensure runners have hydration and some food. The organisers have run in events so they would be pretty blur if they screwed around with providing hydration. It's also in ECP. So there are regular bathrooms.

      There was once a story of an army guy who had his maid carry his bag for him....  :p
    • I just read this https://www.challenge32.runpilgrim.com/faq I find this race a bit funny...They literally use "SCM" branding to advertise thats its a good tune up for SCM. SCM may sue them for using their branding to advertise their race. Its the only race that dare to use another race to advertise their race. Weird... They use words like...Hmm, if u dun want, then ok loh type of feeling. (U dun want the tee, just write in hor). Also paper cup not much..etc, The whole feel is like cheapo cheapo feeling. Baggage u all might as well dun need also feel. Comm'on lah..Might as well dun provide anything..we run ? Since u everything also dun want this, dun what that. What do u mean by <<Hard-pressed to put together a last-minute event upon understanding that the annual Newton Challenge may not be happening, >> ?? Actually U hardpress is your business, we runners wants a good and proper race ! Even Newton challenge may not be happening, dun sound like oh...just suka suka come up with a race similar to Newton. Newton challenge may not be happening, does'nt mean u just form up a last min race to entertain us also. Its perfectly ok to have a new race that offer long distance also, why keep emphasizing newton run dun happen so just suka suka hardpress to have one. Why hardpress ???   I dun know lah..i have some trust issues with this race and may not sign up.  
    • I have read FAQ of this race. This event is a last minute due to the annual NC most probably not happening.  Plus Newton threw it's weight behind this event by being one of the sponsor.  Do take note that those who wants to deposit their bags will need to pay $5 during race pack collection.  https://www.challenge32.runpilgrim.com/faq  
    • Hard-level will involve climbing and going downhill of steep mountains with high elevation, running through dense forestation, getting yourself wet from running cross small streams, getting lost due to poor visibility from fog etc. Of course not in Singapore, but overseas.
