Sit back and watch? Weren't you supposed to run naked at ECP and cut kkj if this didn't get cancelled? :P

🤐🤫 I believe that "Streaking in public" in Singapore is illegal, right? Anyhow, we should not against the law... 🤭🤭

And of course, please do not execute self-mutilation... it's not wise at all.

And go through the whole agony cycle again and again and again and again and again and again.... lol

it will never end. Once is enough for me... I will just sit back and watch this time round how they are going to screw up this Saturday 

Understood your anger, i am going to manage my expectation too like ZZiZZ  has mentioned. Then this race will be struck off permanently from my list.

Wah seh! Can’t believe still got quite a handful of people in here signing up for it this year despite all the warnings...

speechless 

no wonder xchange and whatever form or name it can evolve to, can survive time after time screwing up an running event.

Quite a fair bit of queue but cleared very fast within 5 mins of collection.. Lucky x-change upgraded collection point with adequate manpower or else honestly i do not think small booth honest bee can cope with the number of people collecting.

Noting to shout about as mentioned last year participant will get only an event t-shirt & bib with timing chip. A can of honey drink was given free by one of the sponsor.

It would be interesting to see how the attendance for this year's event varies against previous years, given all the negative publicity and history.

You are right. cause people are sheep. so scam companies will thrive. Give a free slot and everybody runs happy for them haha

I would foresee that dramatically, tomorrow morning there will be a rain or downpour, and the race probably would be badly affected or even xxxxxxxed... 🤪😝 then: "God saved me..."

I predict that based on the trend for the last few days, rain will only comes in the afternoon. So for those who is taking part, given the expected reduce number of runners (so now more manageable) and this time round running with much lower expectation, it may turn out that this run event can be quite a nice cooling run with lesser drama.....(sorry Stalky79) 

Just to add, I am not joining this run.

Collected my bib for this already, but still considering about whether to wake up and run this tomorrow and give them a second chance?

Or should I forego it completely and DNS?

What do you guys recommend? Haha...

Seems to be forecast for thunderstorm overnight till tomorrow morning.  High chance may be cancelled.  Better watch out for any FB or sms.

They are already not replying on fb to queries for race pack collection.... typical xchange tactic...

I was just looking at the 10K route and it looks short to me. I did a rough plot and it was about 8K. Those who had run around that in previous races will know.

For comparison, take a look at the POSB PAssion Run for Kids 10K route.

A lot of people will be able to do PB for the '10k' race :crazysmile:
