One north Run 2018 - 2 Dec 2018

Recommended Posts

Pink Apple is handling the race logistics and this was an ELM medal race last yr.

Interestingly, the Pink Apple site also listed another race on the same day Santa Run for Wishes. Wonder if Pink Apple is also handling that race. Handling 2 races on the same day at the same time would be quite an undertaking!

We are unable to participate two races which are held at the same time... however, the organizer can organize two races at the same time. emmmm....

Yup! I went for it in 2015... definitely not a flat course.

NUS, definitely... the slopes at Prince George's Park and Yusof Ishak Hall are killer!

Very likely to see Mediacorp artistes joining the race again, since participants are running around the home of Mediacorp. I won't be surprised to see Kym Ng, who is very active in 10K events.

Good preparation just one week before SCM.

Race pack collection today and tomorrow. For just $30, the contents are so much better than those races that charge $50-$60.

The Result is out !

This is one of the run worth to keep it in your arsenal !

It was a medium toughness "Polises" terrain consists of Biopolis, Fusionopolis (No Police ?) and Mediapolis... at my work place...

It's strange after ran passed the Sandcrawler Building (Lucasfilm Singapore) at around 6 km, was energised and able to run at faster pace kind of "may the force be with you" from the Star Wars Jedi ?

Things for Improvement:
Do away the last 2 km second loop by extending somewhere somehow with more one way loops !

Bonus:

Quality ELM medal!

Next time you should wear a different (and bright) color singlet, so that you will be caught easily...

    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...

    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line is of course different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears  you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print. If she had to choose between the two of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!" 🥴
