Thank you for the update, bro. I would like to join this hilly/challenging but interesting race again, if my schedule permits this year. ?

This run is quite refreshing from the usual GBTB & the opportunity to go into Changi Prison compound.

Wtf sia....

To avoid the confusion, we' better merge both threads, or keep the older one only.

I'm looking for the next event to join, and browsed through last year's review for YRPR.

Read Lonewolf's post that there's no isotonics provided? Went to YRPR website, and didn't sponsors/ isotonics.

On top of that, the far off location, and potential bus queue on the return trip.

Think I'll pass on this one :wave:

If you have not run this race before, I cannot recommend this race strongly enough. I ran this race since 2013 (apart from that one year where the race was canceled because of the haze) and always enjoyed it.

The novelty factor of this race is super high just because there is no other legal way for any of us law-abiding citizens to run inside the Changi Prison Complex. The route is challenging and refreshing and its a usual departure from the usual city, park or reservoir routes featured in 80% of the races here.

Yes. It is a bit challenging to reach the race site. But the bus shuttle services (both paid and free) are reasonably well managed. Sure, there are minor shortcomings here and there every year but nothing too catastrophic.

So I hope you reconsider joining this race.

Seriously. It's a no-brainer (for me). Most definitely 100% YRPR :crazysmile:

I still rem in 2015, this race not only clash with POSB run but Run Against Cancer as well. And I think another neighobourhood run. 

Even though RAC was another streak race, I choose to give that up and maintain the streak for YRPR.

Agree with lonewolf what he had said.

This is an once per year race event that you can go in lawfully into Changi chalet. Route is not flat with some up slopes. If you are sick of usual GBTB, this is the race to consider.

    • ^ I was thinking the same thing. I was optimistically hoping for the outbreak to mellow down by summer (for the northern hemisphere) but then I realise even if that happens, the underlying tension might still be there. So I'm just going to sit out on all international marathons until WHO declares the end of pandemic. Support local events for now!     
    • 2:55! Wow!😅  I don't think I'll ever get to that level since I'm getting on in years... I did consider doing the Sydney Marathon (September) or the CIty to Surf for Active Marathon in Perth (August) instead of my Oct or Nov race, but I'm hesitating. (I don't know if I'll get flagged/scolded by the admins for saying this here) but in Australia I occasionally come across people who, uhm let me just describe as... "not nice". They may not be openly shaking their fists in your face telling you to get out of their country, but they sure will make you feel unwelcome- even if you're not doing anything wrong, are acting on your best manners, and speak fluent English (I grew up in America). You know what I mean? 😓 Now with this virus scare going on, I'm worried they may not treat Asians too well (or even worse) 😨 The world is a big place, and there are many other places to go to in the meantime...
    • Oh, these seem to be nice running routes! I've copied the pictures and am studying them on Google maps. All the way to Changi, that seems fun!!! Thanks to posfe2 & kohpapa! 😊 Hopefully they won't cancel though, so I won't have to DIY a long run 😅    By the way, I did a relaxed 33km LSD today, two months too early for Sundown in May! 😜😜😜 Just my little act of defiance to Covid-19. While we have to be careful, I won't let my worry about this virus control my life exessively.  Hopefully, this optimism may inspire other people as well. We prepare for the worst, but hope for the best! 🥴 #Fight, Wuhan!!! #Fight, Singapore!!! #Korea, Fighting!!! #Ganbatte, Nippon!!! (Japan do your best!) #Fight, Manila!!!
