[COMMENT] Limited to 2,000 participants. Another event organsied by Pink Apple! Can consider.  :spiteful:  If Pink Apple is organising this, is it safe to conclude that they are not doing Race Against Cancer this yr (15 or 22 Jul). I guess they can organise races on 2 consecutive weekends but to organise 2 event b2b on the same weekend may be a little tough, no?

Not sure if I am correct about this, but I think Singapore Cancer Society put up the tender for Race Against Cancer every year. So Pink Apple may or may not win the tender. I guess they went ahead with this confirmed one first, and in the event that they win the RAC tender, they will hire more resources to manage both events somehow.

True. In fact, I went back to look at the RAC tender for last yr and it only open in mid-March and close end March, so if the timetable remain more or less the same, the tender has not even been called yet. 

So perhaps Pink Apple may not even be thinking of participating in this yr tender, if they are committed to organising this event.

I think the route may not be exciting enough for regular runners to join this run. It will likely be a run to Tanjong Rhu/Stadium area and loop back again.  Race fees seem reasonable but again it is a route that does not involve road closure and one can run anytime.

another point to note is the new apparel brand Oxfitt... wonder how its quality or cost is... wonder if there will be a change from YACR to YAOR in the future....

How's the material for the singlet for those who have collected or even worn it?

Material a smooth and comparable to Newton and CompresSport singlet.

Won't be surprised if the same OEM manufacturer supplies all 3 brands. :crazysmile:

Saw their route info...Any one can give some light on if we need to run thru the 'marina barrage ramp mountain' or not...in early half or late half?

Thanks

Think no need. Usually if need to run up the ramp, they would draw the trace the loop round the ramp. So probably just a straightforward to-and-fro route.

Hope that in the future, many more races follow suit and provide such incentives for a wider group of runners to aim for, and not just for the elite 0.1% - 0.3% of finishers.

What stalk79 said. :crazysmile:But need to add the following.

Having the F16 bomb burst just right before flag off was an experience. Damn! I dun rem seeing an F16 with afterburner flying so damn low before. The afterburner glow was a sight to behold. Too bad under the cover of trees at the starting pen. So dun reallly have a chance to take a good picture.

Milo van in the starting pen FTW!! :punk:This is the first race I encountered when the milo van is placed inside the starting pen. Perfect for a quick top up before the race. 

Despite the throng of crowd catching the NDP preview fireworks, Pink Apple and the security staff did a superb job in creating a clear path for the runners especially in the high volume area in front of the MBS Shoppe.

I admit I was probably distracted by all plane fly-bys and fireworks which probably slow me down a little. But can't be help. It was definitely a unique race because of the NDP preview. If you ask me, race organiser should be smart about it and tap on future NDP preview shows around the Marina Bay area for the unique atmosphere.

The food at the end was a pleasant surprise. 

Despite it being a Pink Apple event, it feels almost no-frills. I think the turnout was quite small. Probably less than 1,000 runners.

First time trying b2b (evening-morning) races, so it was a challenge for me not to tax myself too much and not finishing too slow for the cut-off time. ^_^

There's was another race late at night along Punggol Waterway. I encounter them during my nightly run at before 9pm. Conditions not ideal as they have to deal with park users, especially the cyclists and PMD riders. Couldn't make out what race is that from the Bibs.

I took videos of the Ndp aerial show and fireworks as I ran and still managed to clock my best timing for 2018... lol

really like the part Where the organizer cleared a path for runners outside MBS with the crowd cheering...

but then again too much crowd as well - saw a bike ebrake outside GBTB trying to avoid collision with a kid and flipped over. Poor chap..

That’s the Twilight Ultra organized by Running Guild. I didn’t sign up cos I don’t like this route for precisely the reasons you mentioned.

    • Bro -  sounds like you B****ing for the sake of it. It is clearly stated as a no frills event with a low price however there will be clear support to ensure runners have hydration and some food. The organisers have run in events so they would be pretty blur if they screwed around with providing hydration. It's also in ECP. So there are regular bathrooms.

      There was once a story of an army guy who had his maid carry his bag for him....  :p
    • I just read this https://www.challenge32.runpilgrim.com/faq I find this race a bit funny...They literally use "SCM" branding to advertise thats its a good tune up for SCM. SCM may sue them for using their branding to advertise their race. Its the only race that dare to use another race to advertise their race. Weird... They use words like...Hmm, if u dun want, then ok loh type of feeling. (U dun want the tee, just write in hor). Also paper cup not much..etc, The whole feel is like cheapo cheapo feeling. Baggage u all might as well dun need also feel. Comm'on lah..Might as well dun provide anything..we run ? Since u everything also dun want this, dun what that. What do u mean by <<Hard-pressed to put together a last-minute event upon understanding that the annual Newton Challenge may not be happening, >> ?? Actually U hardpress is your business, we runners wants a good and proper race ! Even Newton challenge may not be happening, dun sound like oh...just suka suka come up with a race similar to Newton. Newton challenge may not be happening, does'nt mean u just form up a last min race to entertain us also. Its perfectly ok to have a new race that offer long distance also, why keep emphasizing newton run dun happen so just suka suka hardpress to have one. Why hardpress ???   I dun know lah..i have some trust issues with this race and may not sign up.  
    • I have read FAQ of this race. This event is a last minute due to the annual NC most probably not happening.  Plus Newton threw it's weight behind this event by being one of the sponsor.  Do take note that those who wants to deposit their bags will need to pay $5 during race pack collection.  https://www.challenge32.runpilgrim.com/faq  
    • Hard-level will involve climbing and going downhill of steep mountains with high elevation, running through dense forestation, getting yourself wet from running cross small streams, getting lost due to poor visibility from fog etc. Of course not in Singapore, but overseas.
