all the year running the same old Singapore marathon until sian....I think better to run Macao Marathon, alway same date as SCMS.

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!

    • let uncle share another list "lobangs"... in late 2020, most of Run in-place marathon events were cancelled, and hence there were "virtual events"  that was held in late 2020 or some that is going to be held in present (2021)...

Singapore is a "non-winter" country, so how to show uncle "running in snowshoes" for the event? and meeting all the "requirements" for the Virtual Race? so uncle came up with the "snowshoes"... Ninja Van: "yo...seow uncle kohpapa, this one you ordered from amazon....sign here...." uncle will need 3 supporting evidence (including one with gps)... this one will be one of 3 submissions... yes, uncle going to run with "showshoes" @ ECP Beaches for 50KM for Fun on Sappporo VR (single or multiple submissions)...since someone once asked the organizer...   who says there is no "snow" in Sunny and Sandy Singapore...just run with a smile and fun...with snowshoes...in Feb 2021..😁
    • @kohpapa Go for it Uncle! Do share your run route for your kyoto marathon! 😀
    • uncle represented Singapore as International Paricipant with these submissions...   as well as submission of GPS data [21KM] as evidence... looking forward to receiving from Siberia... sport hat, face shield and finisher's medal.. uncle's overseas virtual races "lobang"...😁 of course, this weekend...Kyoto Marathon 2021... uncle registered as "local resident"... and entered for this race... again this "lobang" was announced in dec 2020.. that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it... uncle simply follows the list "lobangs" of 2021..that's all...😁
    • I saw Soh running into bedok reservoir park yesterday. Gave him a shout-out. I feel he remains quite a humble guy despite his athletic achievements.
    • i didnt manage to see the brand cause his legs were moving and i was driving... only seen his face...
