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 .

    • Ah yes, Terry Fox!  He was quite famous after the first running boom (sometime in the 70s to early 80s) I even saw a TV movie about him when I was in grade school (OMG, My age is showing 😵 LOL) And to think he was an amputee! 
    • I’m usually self supported when I do my solo LSDs, so I can manage up to a marathon’s distance (ultras will need at least some form of support however, at least for me) . I can’t replenish at any public faucet like you guys do over there, but there are stores everywhere.  I can also lug at least 2L in my hydration vest if I’m in the mood to shout:  “THIS... IS… SPARTAAAAA!” 😜 😜 😜 but I haven’t been that motivated lately. At least not since this pandemic broke out.  Nothing beats the convenience of having a route clear of cars, and hydration at least every 5km (IAAF rules) in an actual organized race though, but these just won’t be possible for the time being so we’ll just have to be patient. I look forward to the day when they find a vaccine to this plague… and we’ll all be partying, cheering and giving high fives after crossing the finish line once more. 😊
    • Incredible feat! The other person I know of running a marathon every day for a cause was Terry Fox.
    • I’m sharing this interesting story of a Korean monk doing a 5,200 km charity ultra run from LA to New York City, running 50km each day. He was forced to halt it in the meantime because of the pandemic: https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/culture/2020/06/141_290579.html    What struck me most was that where he expected prejudice, he found only kindness, and that the ones who had the least to give... actually gave the most: “I received heartwarming care from those in poverty” I guess it’s really true that what you sow, so shall you reap. I'd like to read more about this guy and his story when he continues his run. 👍
    • Thank you for sharing the hints, totally agreed. So I need to make a good plan on the routing. 😊👍   Yea, in a race of last year, the experience of a lot of runners has proved that... 💪🤣
