This is one of the persistent "Trinity Run" for 10km, 21km and 30km.

Early bird has been extended to 15 January 2019 according to the official facebook !

I'm not sure whether the 10% off the early bird rates Promo code : TPMR18 still valid ? It was valid few days ago.

Despite some of the yearly negative feedback such as part of the route were very dim, the "voodoo" purple drink, some route not properly covered and ... it is still one of the favorite Saturday evening race !

Thank you very much to "lonewolf" for posting this thread, I was looking for this. 

And found something interesting on their website, not sure why the 21KM is treated differently, should be a typo... ?

Seems like they ditched Pere Ocean and now is a new mineral water company Aquila onboard for hydration.

What would be the isotonic drink served then?

I signed up HM. Planning to use it as a gauge for SDM; didn't do any competitive event this year.

I signed up 30KM, which is a distance I did never run before, previously the furthest I ran is 25KM. I participated 20 HM races in 2017 and 2018, but so far I still do not have any plan (confidence) to push myself to FM, mentally it's "mission impossible" for me... ?

You will be fine (sounds like you have many mileage under you already). From now til 2 weeks before race day, do more long runs (21 - 27 km).

Where got new? This yr (2018) already got 30km. AR dreaming again as usual! :fish:

Actually, the isotonic isn't the only reason why I won't join this race. For a race site that is so ulu, min must have a bridging free shuttle bus from Stadium MRT. The shirt design is awful. The bag deposit usually a nightmare.  And except for one year (ELM medal!) the finisher medal quality is usually poor. 

So even if they managed to get 100+ to sponsor the isotonic, I probably still won't join. Going for SZR the next day instead.

The race time for 21km/30km is now earlier at 6pm ?. The previous (2018) starting time was 7:30pm.

Let's say if run at the worse timing of 4.5hrs (cut off time), still can finish the run by 10:30pm. So it is still not too late if need to catch bus/train home.

Should be good enough reasoning to sign up, unless those negative feedbacks (poorly lit route/run out of finishing medal/run out of finisher t-shirt size, etc) from previous Marina Run really put you off.

Based on the FAQ from their website, there will be bridging bus service to Stadium MRT

https://www.marinarun.com.sg/faq

Free shuttle bus service from Stadium MRT station CC6 to Gardens by the Bay East at Rhu Cross <-----> (Return shuttle service between Stadium MRT & Gardens by the Bay East will run from 3:30pm to 11:30pm (on a first come first serve basis).

- Race Pack collected today, took 3 mins, no queue.

- I noticed that their take out a plastic water gun from the goodie bag before handing it over to the runner, not sure why... Maybe they want to reduce our load. Thank you for that.

Assuming you aren't the fastest runner, then you don't have to know. I will just follow the others, or the volunteers... ???

Looking into the map, really can't tell whether we need to climb the "mountain". it doesn't look like so. But the direction arrow in that area looks a bit confusing, need to correct:

All categories will need to climb the Marina Barrage slope this year, @ZZIZZ and @Haibei1971.

Thank you for the confirmation, I believe that your information is accurate, as you are one of the pacers/marshals.

Sigh..... we actually don't have to climb up that slope, we can make up this distance at east coast park.........?‍♂️?‍♂️

    • For some who had been actively in running, because it is passion to run. Uncle share with all (and others who are guests of the forum), why it is still good to stay active.. Found an interesting article this morning on why we have pains and we, as from different age-group runners, how we have "coped" with aging natural inflamation and muscle mass loss "better" if we are actively running.       Let us here be constructive contributors to those who want to learn to be ACTIVE again. We merely facilitate that transfer knowledge of why we run and understanding to all to "build" the bridge of communication. "Why we run" is not so much about WMM (which some of us agreed is the Event Host and perhaps the Authority has over hyped), but encouraging more ACTIVE reasons to join us (not because evening run is better for more participation), but because we care for an aging population, so everyone can stay ACTIVE SG as a Nation. SCSM:WMM is just a hall mark to say, we can achieve World's Major status, because all of us excel beyond the expectation of not only to stay ACTIVE, but competitively to extend our SCSM:WMM venue for more ACTIVE World, to show to us, after all there are World ACTIVE age-group runners who also can perform as though they are aged 25s. If Communication is properly channeled, why this was not propagated in the first place: First is to point all the fingers, why didn't we? Ironman races (mutli-event) has always format in Age Group categories. Qualifier to proof as Age Group can be considered for the purpose of entry as well as Pen Start. Pick an age group of your choice, take an ACTIVE challenge for the PB, and you can proudly say, I can PB like aged 25? That will be an ACTIVE statement, a goal-setting preposition. You want to START and the rest is the challenge in ACTIVE running (progressive PB) * Warning: Please consult your physician before engaging in any ACTIVE SG especially endurance race like Marathon. We don't encourage "uplorry" events during the Marathon. You know, closures of roads and human jams can make "uplorry" procedure very uncomfortable. We prefer you not to plan "It's The End" finale to be in SCSM:WMM.  We call that INACTIVE Irresponsibility.
    • Thank you, @starfinder, for you had been asking about alternative Marathon if Sundown Marathon is good also for anything Marathon. We at 2020 Sundown Marathon did say something negative, due to its proven inability to have had an unforgettable having force runners to "drink toilet water", perhaps 2020 Sundown Marathon could be a better choice for Community Run. The timing of start from 10pm, 11:30pm and 12:30pm were never complained by the public and on wee hours of Saturday Night and early Sunday Morning, normal Social Events in the past were never being impacted. Even, in the public outcry in recent days, "Can you runners Choose this timing of start, besides 6pm (peak hour), can you please pick 8pm (F1 Night starts also at this hour), 10pm, 12 midnight, 2am, 4am and 6am. Why can't SCSM must start at 6pm, but why not after 6pm? Now, isn't this build "bridge" of reconciliation. We listen to what is the real issue, but we work with what we can do (last option - we need to revert to Day meaning Sunday), but can we choose 8pm, this is still evening run? right? to minimise disruption. Sundown Marathon does not have any issues, yes, uncle would encourage for those who have no option for an overseas Marathon, then Sundown Marathon is here to stay. Yes, cheap entry at $65 for Marathon, if uncle knows and some more, definitely with the absence of most muslim runners who said, "Why held at Hari Raya Eve?"...well uncle would expect, Drinks and Hydration, Nutrition and otherwise, plus with the negative publicity of "boycott", every participant at upcoming Sundown Marathon, nobody will gate crash with you. You have an open space to run/walk and yes, if you want to play "rat and mouse" like take short-cuts....volunteers tend to zzZZZ...if need information how to play "rat", can contact uncle for tips...haha...uncle will also show how to sleep also and still able to complete the route..  
    • If SCSM wants to go the way of elitism and raise the bar to sub 6 or even below, those who can't 'qualify' can always opt for Sundown. I won't blame them for raising their standards and I believe there are always other better races to participate.
    • With respective credits (given and noted) to these videos for the purpose on archiving for the running community for information on how to improve for future SCSM races...we thank you for having your wonderful running experiences to be shared here...enjoy 2 versions...local running community:    and foreign running community:   Yo, hoho, we are heading to the festive season of merry christmas, may joy and peace to all mankind, 2019 has come to a positive ending for SCSM... Let there be a closure and be a lesson learned from one another, communication. There was once when the themes of previous SCSM were for raising funds for charity, cummunity-building and bonding of the North-East-South-West...thought this year will be Community-based running clubs intra competition...but instead this year is for WMM and why evening run will appeal to more participation...so that is reason for road closures...leading to others saying, "What, is that what you runners are running for - entitlement to your mission, and how about our personal entitlement of our own social events..." Uncle is not going to start a debate of whoever start to bicker, will end up, having lengthy discussion of the negative feelings of "who is right to each other entitlement" - every 1st sat or 1st sunday (evening or morning) of december...if can be less disruptive for all concerned, it will be a step towards harmony for all... Running community must justify WMM, because Qualifier to proof is great recognition of runners who deserving to be credited in Hours:Mins:Secs. WMM would also mean Qualifier to proof will later be cut from 7.5, to 7 to 6 to 5 and even 4, which in uncle's opinion if Singapore Marathon is to be a world-class Marathon Event deserving just like F1 Night Race, only for competitive reason, and already some have shown reservation that what happened if local participants not able to meet the minimum qualifier criteria, and for the first time, local cannot even participate in her own Marathon Event. The reality may be the truth. Progressive PB in 5km/10km/21km/42km Wheelchair are there. Choose your events that you can be better to qualify. If you are better to be in HM, then go for all HM, 10km or 5km. If you are youthful enough, then go and coach Kids Dash and be an inspiration for them. Cheer them and build a youthful running community. Upgrade most of the potential local events to IAAF Road Race Label. Already Great Eastern Women's Half Marathon is SA-IAAF Road Race sanctioned. Just up the Label to Gold. Perhaps, it is about time GE Women's Half Marathon can open to non-gender based participants (selective), since SCSM:WMM Qualifier to proof will be easier to verify who can and cannot be selected. Certain run events are meant for Community and Non-competitive, and SCSM once started from the reason for mess running. We call them "grassroot running events". As ambassadors of SCSM:WMM qualifiers, please lah, don't go to these "grassroot running events" and gate crash their events and win at all cost lah. Maybe, run with "one-legged" disadvantage lah, win community top 3 as though you must always be the champions...Give chance lah. not an entitlement for your personal PB. If you want to PB, run SCSM or any sanctioned race. If event is a non-sanctioned unlike SCSM or Great Eastern Women's Run, FB in consideration is always not accurate because the route is never right, and the event participants are never meant to qualify, so minus the element of competition. These event runners just want to have "community run" spirit. So don't push them to say, "Run lah, don't walk lah, keep left if slow lah....by the way, international traffic convention many be different in China (like US and Taiwan) slow is to keep right, so don't complain of your own entitlement. Your PB is affected not why the runners "block" your way, it is because, every runner has their "rights of way", slow or otherwise, the race is not for your SCSM:WMM, it is not a PB event for them, so please lah, don't bark at them, and say, "Don't you know how to run?" "Don't you know what is keep left?". Hope these runners show you middle finger 🖕, and we know that is directed to you personally...and you deserve to be one of a kind. Yes, reflect on ourselves, as runners, when we comment what is our interests, isn't we talking about our entitlements. When your point a finger at someone, four fingers curled and point back to you of what you shouldn't do. Let there be peace on Earth....are you doing something for sustainability for every race...if not yet, then channel into what runner yet to do....Care for Everybody on Running Course. Did we do this in scsm 2019...mmm..not really. Let us not be a Polluter for the running community as well as for the non-running community with our shower of criticism for an event that has disrupted and hurt them unintentionally. Let us remain an open channel of communication (as a community - event host, authority and ourselves) to bridge that one day, everything will be better and improved. Let's doze any fire that may spark another misunderstanding. Sometimes, it is best to Let It Go ("Frozen 1" theme). Well, we have Frozen 2 Some Things Never Change - It may be  our passion to run, but we may have overdone to have disrupt others because of our passion to run. Be mindful and consideration for others, that include your family and friends, because when you take away your time to run passionately, they also may also need you to be with them for many reasons - love and bonding. Remember, every action you take, one finger points forward, four fingers curled and point to yourself what you didn't do. This the time and spirit of giving - thanksgiving and christmas and happy new year. SCSM annual event  is held whether closer to December on 1st week of December, is always after Thanksgiving which is always the last Thursday of Every November. Some Things Never Change.  So be sensitive and considerate to others for other communities, for they start their festive season always before SCSM. They too have the right to celebrate their annual celebrations with their love ones, just like Ours - Some Things Never Change. Let there be Peace and Happiness be with All (Our Families and Friends) here and that include our Partners who are from the non-running community who are also entitled to their social and bonding with their Families and Friends.  Let It Go Some Things Never Change.  
    • Congrats to Pereira, Veronica Shanti, 200m Woman (Bronze). Seen Shanti in 2015, She had a gold. Consistent performer, and let's wish she can win a medal for 100 meters. Knew her coach, any raw "gem" when molded to be a champion or medal podium, will always be consistent in performance. Talent is also important for anything sports. That consistent in performance can also be seen in SohRunFaster...
