At least they tried to change up the route in the past few years. 

And if running ECP is still not your thing (which is the feedback you gave previously too), then yes go sign up for something else.

I doubt they will change the timing so abruptly. Might be a few years of marketing before the change...

Marketing or planning? If marketing then I don't understand why it will take a few years. Planning takes time but also no need that long bah.

I doubt it will turn into a night race anytime soon. Logistics are more challenging to manage and so far Ironman have not proven itself to be able to handle them well yet.

need to market to local and overseas runners for them to get accustomed to.. planning of course needed as well... I still think it might take some years to get it right...

I disagree that you need that much time to market such a change. I understand you would think that runners would need time to adjust to changes, but that is probably more so for loyal runners who are used to running in certain timings in the past. As a runner,  it doesn't bother me that much to run in the day or night. As an organizer I don't think that would affect my marketing plans too and besides I can reach out to new runners whom I can get to register that like running in the evening.

No amount of time planning would ensure that things will go right on the actual race day. It's mostly about learning through the years. And even that does not guarantee that the leanings will be taken seriously and will equate to a better and better running experience (Refer to our local marathons).

Good points by Beast!

As a previous SG run event participant, I am annoyed how race organizers here don't get their basics right when comes to event execution (logistics such as race pack collection, bag deposit, actual race experience, post-race finisher entitlement collection etc).

They have their chances to improve the run event execution from runners' feedback, media coverage which they don't do a good job here!

Don't count too much hope on the organisers and agree with you "different problem" may surface.

With sunglass as a participant's entitlement, I think we can confirm that it'll not be a night race this year. :P

I registered for FM. Take note of the size of the Singlet and Finisher T. It is still quite big so I choose S and XS .

    • Clarified from The Straits Times report...Thank you for replying and responding. In recent days, many changes due to Covid-19...full fee payments are not deposits...what is cancel and postpone and no refund...even though with force majeure event. New Bills, new Rules, new Laws....full of difference in interpretations, agreements and disagreements...from sources of information...during Covid-19. At least, discussions here have made us "more awakened" to what are our rights as consumers to Race Organisers in their R&Rs. 😷 Avoid or Boycott their races in future when we are Covid-19 Free.
    • I like the term "circuit breaker". Hopefully it helps to reduce panic buying. Well, here, most of us don't go to grocery, marketplace or supermarket to buy food to cook. We buy food at our favourite food stalls, and eat out. But, now till May 4, No Dining Out. Members of the public are highly advised to comply with the elevated safe distancing measures imposed from now till May 4 (info extract - mothership.sg)       Importantly, whether you Exercise, Buy or Eat, Anyone meeting people with whom they do not live risks six months in prison, a fine of S$10,000 ($7,000) or both. What can and can you not do during Singapore's Circuit Breaker (CB) period?     Latest: Singapore sees record spike of 142 new COVID-19 cases; 20 linked to largest cluster at S11 dormitory (source: CNA)
    • What we paid was not a deposit but the full registration fee. I do not think the legislation applies to mass running events.  But of course, I could be wrong.  IMHO, I think the 'old radio' issue of 'refund-or-no-refund' should be put to rest. If the race is cancelled and the organiser offered a refund, then good. I considered that a goodwill and will definitely considered them favourable in future. If they are not in a position to do so, then the least I expect from them is a simple explanation why they could not do so. If they do, then again, I will take it in good faith and considered them favourable. Race organier who refuse to entertain refund (as they are entitled to do so) and just throw the R&R at us, that's fine too. But I will remember. And I will definitely avoid their events in future. Provided they survive the pandemic of cos.   
    • Refund is not happening for this run yet as I think they are still trying to make it happen in the 2nd half of the year...
    • Great to hear that...yes, special price at $65 (inclusive of GST). Refund is the task of Infinitus. How about the rest, before uncle changes "negative" on Infinitus to "neutral", remember this is a simple agreed transaction 3-week timeline...and there is no race organising/administration in 2020.
