don't make "too much financial loss" is a term for what if expected thousands didn't register as expected...yes, Sundown did had a substantial loss on that one...financially...

OhMyGod, where got  "too much financial loss"

@kohpapa, again & again, u r  'in the wrong direction'. Yes, runner never give up :P

Sundown 2017 target 30 000 runners. Ideally, if 30 000 runners, will make Profit Y.  27 000 runners register,  making about 90%profit Y.  Is this profit or "too much financial loss" ?

Not going to join Sundown because of the starting timing... look for other HM in June to join.

Jun is usually a quiet month. It's unlikely there will be another HM in Jun unless TPS went back to hosting HM next year.

@ZZIZZYou are welcome.

I'm still deciding whether to join FM or HM. For sure will not get burn by the sun.

Yes sir, if I could run FM, personally I will prefer to participate Sundown, rather than others... Why? The only reason is the weather, at least there is no sunburn with Sundown (if you can finish it before sunrise). This is what I discussed with my friend yesterday, when we were seeing the "Human BBQ"...??

The greatest fallacy about running the Sundown marathon is that it is easier.

Having done both the SCSM and SDM FM, I have to say that SDM FM was definitely more challenging.

For SCSM, apart from physical endurance, your greatest enemy is the weather.

For SDM, in additional to the above, you will need to combat your body's natural tendency to shut off, the reduced level of visibility and the higher humidity. Personally,  I found the humidity most challenging even though I am not averse to hot weather myself. 

But I suppose some will cope better running in the wee hours of the morning than others. So your mileage may vary.

sleep can wait...for SD, and so, how to overcome the sleep urge...you can see that sundown always starts after 12midnight...meaning sleep has to be suppressed as the morning hours taper to sunrise...

23l0d4.png

as your body needs also to rest, the bodily cells need to rest so that "recovery and growth" of new cells for the next day can be ready...and so have a proper restful sleep is always well advised...so at SD, you are supposed to fight the urge to sleep, against the natural cycle of bodily repair...and so disrupting the production of real energy...so every running step is always tiring...so you constant need to replenish to keep awake..and you will think of food and caffeine...

stress hormones will be ultimate produced in the day time, that is why, your feel energetic in the day time like the SCSM...ready because hormones are optimum and concentration with focus is driven by daylight...

however, as night falls, oxygen is lesser, you can based on biological green plants: Photosynthesis takes in the carbon dioxide produced by all breathing organisms and reintroduces oxygen into the atmosphere.give in the day....but, depletion of oxygen at night...and so, one needs to breath harder in the night...

as street lights may come from cool-light (white like daylight) while the night-light (orange)...so when running in brightly-lit area, you are more focus and attention with white, but when dim light (orange) comes, the mind switches instinctive to "sleep" mode...ready to zzzzZ..hopefully run West Coast Highway...uncle surely say is white light because cargo trucks need attentive drivers...and uncle ran WCH at night...don't ask uncle why...read this SCSM thread for the story...

it is known that if someone who wants to carry out night robbery, the best time is 3am-5am....this is also the time, when if you drive, you will be surely be not concentrating, and accidents are known to occur in these wee hours of morning...

have fun with SD, for if you never experience it, how can you then tell the difference between SD and SCSM? uncle runs zombie...meaning sleep while running...and make sure 3am-5am you don't land up sleeping with a street lamppost....thinking it is your pillow...

have fun with SD :)

I am hoping they release the starting time for us to make an informed decision.

This part about SDM I fully agree.. I rem my mind shut down around 3am and I didn't even rem the pace i was running at till I refer to my pace at the end of race...

I'm doing the London Marathon on April 28th.

With that in mind, do you guys recommend I should do HM or FM for the Sundown?

For the past 2 years you said no more FM for sundown. But during sign up you still go for FM anyway.

I don't think anyone can give you good advice on that. Just follow your heart. London Marathon is a non-issue since its 4 weeks apart, more than enough time to recover already.

    • 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.
