[Comment] OMG! What is happening with all these race announcements for races to be held 6-7 months later? :startle: And not to be out-done by the big boys, TWCC CSC has not only announced the dates for their signature event but is taking registration. Incredible!

I believed the organizer has made a mistake this year organized the race from April 28 to April 30 since few previous editions were organized on Good Friday follows with Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday.

This year I've to bite the bullet to complete 10 loops on April 28 morning follows with Income Eco Run 21 km on April 29 morning and continued the last 5 loops on the same day afternoon and suffered minor sunburn.

Long time ago... Geyland Serai Community Club was very active organized 100Plus PAssion Run as the lead-up run for Sundown Marathon for many years but a history now...

Very glad with Tampines West Community Sports Club's enthusiasm and effort to continue get everyone to be active run or active walk and the organizer even continues to up-size the maximum distance from 10 loops to 15 loops and now 20 loops as a result listen to the runners ?

Most community organized event are normally more affordable and heavily subsidized and has better quality goodies bag and even has lucky draw...

Thinking to take the 20 loops challenge next year but afraid clash with some last minute organized event on the same Sunday morning...

Good luck to all runners. Really mental to be completing loops around the reservoir. Persevere and complete your targeted loops!

Hi al, I completed the 20 laps yesterday from 7.00am to 10.45pm. It was indeed a long day. Heavy rains started at my 5 laps but it seems everyone persevered. I found it cooling under the rain and especially after the rain. Rain stopped before 12noon. The 4.3 loop allowed me to time my walk and jog (I knew when to jog and stop to walk by following the lifebuoys) Strange but it worked for me. My legs were giving up on the last 5 laps but still I followed my walk-jog techniques. But in the final lap, I did a grand finale by walking the whole loop! To most, running round and round is quite boring but I think it was a useful way to track my performance.

The best reward would be the 4 nice medals and the 86km finisher T I finally got to wear

Lastly, a big THANK to the organisers/volunteers who had stayed late/overnight to make this race a great success.

This is a "Own Time Own Target" run so you are free to run any number of laps, start and stop whenever you want, pause and continue whenever you want.

No food provided, runners will need to stop and pause the run and head off to a nearby eatery if they need food. If not they stop till they complete the targeted number of loops.

Yes, it is a free and easy run. I ran to the nearby foodcourt/7-11 for my lunch and dinner. At the end of each loop, the official stamped your card so you (and they) can keep track of the numbers of completed loop. Unlike the Craze Ultra, this time round, I got real food in my system to sustain the run.

Thanks for the info. So how is it for Craze Ultra? Got to carry own ration? Can run off course to nearest 7-11?

Same as well. Own time Own Target. You can go off course, stop and pause at any of the checkpoint and come back later.

For Craze ultra the checkpoints are quite well stocked with food (fruits, biscuits, cup noodles if you are running 101km) so I don't think anyone bothered with carrying their oenw ration.

It’s true. I had tons of gels and snacks left, which I bright along. In the end could finish cos those supplied at checkpoints were good enough. Esp the latter stages as o was walking mostly and no need to really eat.
