Will be a little challenging. 5:30pm-6:30pm, the sun is still hot...

Last year the race was postponed a little because of the rain storm, the weather was cool down after the raining, we can feel the cool wind along the East Coast Park. Hopefully this year will be better.

Both races seem to be at the same time and same location. Was Epic the race organiser did 2XU ultra last year as well? 

Yes. This is just Epic 'clever' way of maximising the race logistics stuffs like barriers, tentage etc. I remember they did the same with the Marina Run by also organising some fun run - Marina Party Dash the next day.

Sorry for mixing up. Because last year 2XU SG-Ultra race had 100KM solo/duo, 50KM solo/duo, 21KM, and 10KM, and this year they split categories into two races but on the same day and at same time. Frankly the only difference I could tell is, last year they put all eggs into one pocket, and this year they put eggs into two separate but closed pockets... 🤣😆

Maybe last yr they kenna flakes (did they?) for including 21K and 10K in an 'ultra' race and decide to split the race categories into 2 'different' race. 

I think the appropriate term to use in this case is 'LPPL' :crazysmile:But that's Epic for u, patterns more than badminton.

Maybe it is 2XU who decided not to cannibalise their own race branding, since they already have the 2XU compression run which has both 10k and 21k. So Epic not choice but to rename these two categories differently.

Hi friends, i realize the website does not reflect the pricing of the race at all, where can we find the price to run the race ?

To me is a fail....the pricing for website should be clear and visible under a tab call RACE FEE ?

    • 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.
