*sigh* As expected, clash with RunNUS and B2B (evening-to-morning) race with POSB Run for Kids.

95% Double Confirm Chop Stamp! :crazysmile:The Yellow Ribbon Project has shown 0% interest and inclination to extend the race distance despite numerous request over the years. ^_^

Heya folks, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for - registration is finally open! Enjoy early bird prices when you register from now till 22 July. 

This year is a little special for us as we’ll be celebrating a decade of Yellow Ribbon Runs. So let’s come together to run for second chances and greater acceptance for ex-offenders and their families this Sunday, 9 September. We can’t wait to see you. ❤ #10YRsAndRunning

$5 inflation this yr! Still cheap for a 10K race but slowly reaching the point where it may be too expensive to continue joining.

Also, last year there was an option to pay $2 for a hardcopy cert. I don't see the option this yr. Has it been removed?

Not me. One of my streak races so I had already signed up. :jump:

Hope they improved on the baggage deposit this yr. Every year got problem with this because of the uneven distribution of bags amongst the trucks. Those who have bags to deposit be prepared to play 'Bag Deposit Lottery' :crazysmile:

Also last yr the shuttle bus service was quite chaotic. Hope they also improve this yr.

Other than that, I love the route. Very nice to run.

Is there another way to get to the starting area than the shuttle bus?

The usual suspect of cabs and private hail would be the alternatives. 

But if you ask me, shuttle bus is the better alternative. The roads leading to Changi Village always get jammed up. Not only from the extra volume of traffic but from the road diversion required when the need to convert the single lane traffic to dual lanes. The race routes closed off an entire section of the road from traffic. 

I always see a lot of runners in yellow singlets stuck on buses and taxis even after flag off. Must be a terrible feeling.

i remembered when i joined the race back in 2011 or 2012, there isn't so much jam on the road yet... probably of the lesser number of runners...

    • 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.
