Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2018 - 8th - 9th December 2018

Recommended Posts

I’m going to put a shoe bag inside. I doubt the volunteers will enforce that strictly. For Tokyo Marathon i recall I had no problems putting an entire large bag inside the transparent bag and nobody bothered (except to accept it with a smile!).

actually if the gear bag is not transparent, then it is no issue...privacy of what is inside is none of anyone business...

but, if for security reason, for visual inspection and precautionary, so gear bag is transparent...then don't know what to say..

Hi runners, my gentle advise, dun wear the in house tee given by the organizer, sell it on carousell to "get rid" of it, once u wear it once, its consider wore before, the value drops. u end up piling your whole house full of singlets.

Moreover all these new singlets or tees given by organizers are not proven to work on race day. Always wear your own running attire that u are accustomed to on race day ! Thats very important.

Be smart ! Dun wear them, sell them !

lelong...grab them all...top-up $12 or $15 get finisher's tee with free towel after RACE...top-up $20 if you also want Finisher's Medal

let's see, Loyalty Runner ($68.04)...Sell Them All $15 + $15 + $20 = $45.....$23.04 (running effort)....

likedat...mmm...can consider loh...$20 only..HM or FM

yoh, uncle selling and buying of bib in this forum is not encouraged...

abutthen..."u end up piling your whole house full of singlets"...and "goodies that you don't need"...

honestly...uncle did this Carousell thingy in both SCMS and Sundown...Run for Bib for $FREE...and return all your finishing medals and Towels after run...but only eat your banana (bring back cartoons), gel (pack hydration bag 3 litre army issued to top up), mineral water, 100plus (drink carbonated one until bloated).....just nutrition and hydration needs (hopefully worth $20+GST+Active+Admin Fees) for the endurance run mah...:)

just to share one moment of truth...uncle got to change colour of free bib to other colour, because uncle got "aunty's bib" and uncle got to "colour" bib to become "uncle's bib"...very embarrassingly...so uncle wish all future marathon races...unisex bib lah...:)

combo 5 and 10km...you in the race?...

this one in the past SCSM edition is also on same day, but start around 7am...usually youths (*xdd and **xmm) who want to test their endurance prowess...because in schools...1500m and 3000m...5000m and beyond are normally for youths and young adults...***xiao zhe and guys at that level call bros..and beyond call uncles...what else?

*xdd  xiao di di - small brothers actually mean boys

**xmm xiao mei mei - small sisters actually mean gals...

but aunties don't like to be called mei mei because insult them..they prefer to be called ***xiao zhe - young (not small) lady... 

expect them to take "selfies"....wha...take together,,,stop..pose 5km (wha..milestone in my schools life...)..going for 10km PB...of course, 1st time, everyhing is PB...:)

The Disco Lights is really stupid. Other than that, I think the race is very well organised.

I managed to run the whole 10km although some parts are a bit crowded.

The water points looks quite solid; though the bin is still right next to the table. From spectator POV it Looks quite organized, access point into the event could be more prominent. Congrats to all 10K and 5K runners and all the best for those running tomorrow. A3D8188C-E841-4403-8D51-83C4F66A8374.thumb.jpeg.c17d83a4c26af3595dd611b95b073df1.jpeg855C6D8E-33A8-4D12-850B-D599F609B983.thumb.jpeg.3cb7656b38c0b06c4f5919d610da20ed.jpeg

I'm facing the same issue... I can search my name and got my 10KM bib number, and also got my name in HM category but no bib number associated yet. If I search my HM bib number, got nothing... —— should I go to the "Solution" booth in MBS Expo, and let them double check it??

One more question to the people participate two races on Saturday and Sunday, tomorrow morning how should we get the third medal, the "Double Up" one? Our bib number doesn't look different from others......

Finally they seem to have learnt from how major marathons handle water stations? Let’s hope it will be the same tomo. 

Btw, were there any problems distinguishing the plain water from isotonic tables?

Most likely because they haven’t finalised the runner list for HM and FM, people can still collect FM/HM racepack until this afternoon. 

Yes, the tracking feature works.
