you taking up the free race offer?  HK is a trail route with elevation. 

Should be interesting to take. Just need to note on the condition, it never mentioned in the registration. Otherwise it's really free.

This event shall be a BYOB?  

I reviewed the race e-guide, but didn't find "BYOB". It just says:

------------------------------------------------

18. CP FOOD and BEV 食物and飲品站 / 檢查點
• Healthy and nutritious snacks will be served at start/finish point in addition to water and electrolyte hydration TBC.
• TBC Hydration mix available to all participants at the 2 water points on the course and at the start/finish point.

------------------------------------------------

You may want to check with the organizer and ask for their clarification: https://s.tgr.run/contact/

 

The flag-off time looks a bit late, could be hot...

------------------------------------------------

START TIMES

42km – 7am*
21km – 730am*
10km – 8am*

------------------------------------------------

But it's expected and understandable, as Coney Island can only open after 7AM, the flag-off time for all the races which need to pass through Coney Island is always around 7AM, can't be earlier...

" We feel a sense of responsibility towards the environment we depend on, and continue to strive for zero waste events ". I think don't have to say, it a green organizer.

Organizer also clarified over email that it is indeed a BYOB event.

They should have highlighted this bigger. Some runners are going to miss it and will say they do not know about it.

This Punggol Waterway is more like a road run than a trail run, that why many runners will think it not a BYOB event.

I was thinking about signing up for the singlet, looks quite nice but then it will be a quite expensive singlet.

TGR is trail running. I might have join this event if it's not because of their choice of coney island & punggol waterway.

Is not that challenging trail unlike overseas. But some Coney Island paths is running on stones or pebbles or whatever it’s called.

Perhaps they should have planned the run at the usual dairy farm or even ubin. Punggol waterway is strictly road run and running on pebbles in Coney island doesn't qualify it as a trail run either. Else TPS Part 1 would have been considered a trail run.

Coney Island is a more family oriented kind of nature park 'trail'. You can see and it's possible to have small kid riding toy bike, abeng blasting music with e-scooters, bikers riding normal bikes inside. IMO, I won't qualify Coney Island as real trail. Overseas participants would laugh it off if they thought they are here for trail run.

Interestingly there are overseas runners doing this run cos they collected race pack using passport instead of IC or driver license.

Hopefully they won’t be disappointed

    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done 👍   Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong, can apply.    I scare scare, should I call? 
    • 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!" 🥴
    • I’m not a local, so I didn’t know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover  19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
    • Oh, don't know how they got hold of them. But during last year's OCBC Cycle, I saw the organizer selling past years' shirts at the race pack collection venue. I think this is good recycling practice as there should be excess and will be a pity just to scrap them. As well sell cheap to cyclists who may want to buy them.
