Haha, still struggling ... POSB or this... 

Come on bro, if you want, we can run on the flat road at Marina area even for every day, but we can only enter the Changi Prison once a year?... And most importantly, we still remember that in last year after "that race" (sorry for avoiding mentioning its name) you made a commitment on the Yellow Ribbon theme ??..... So... What are you hesitant about now? ????............

SECRETARY, ANY DISCOUNT OR FREEBIE FOR SGRUNNERS FORUMS LOVERS PLEASE 

Hi bookie,

Some of you are right to say this is the only time we can run within prison compound. It is unique. The only disadvantage is the traffic jam leading to the start point which cause me to be late for the 10 km run if I take public transport. This year, may just Grab there at an earlier time.

in 2017 I took a cab to the venue, I was able to stop at the same block; but last year I took a cab and I could only stop 2 blocks away from the venue.

Yup, think they directed vehicles left into Cramwell Road. Unless the cab continues along Netheravon Road and alight near Sree Rama Temple. From there walk to the SAF field is much nearer. Think these roads were not closed.

Think the only way is to arrive much early via Grab/taxi. Perhaps 2 hrs before flag off. It is also not that feasible to drive there as start and end locations are different.

Buying a bus ticket would resolve of not being late for the event.

But the bus service is not like other major races. It doesn’t start at housing estates. Every year I have to take Grab or taxi yo Expo for the bus. Very expensive. That’s the only thing I don’t like about this race.

Yes. Agree that the shuttle service for this race does not cover all housing estates.

This was the pick-up points for 2018.

So like Hougang and Punggol are not covered. Neither is AMK or Toa Payoh. In this case, I guess the best solution would be to buy the ticket nearest to where you stay and Grab/cab to the pick up point.

Anyone knows what's the registration fee for the 10km this year?

Mai gan cheong leh. Registration not started yet. They will release during registration.

Last year was $45 for early bird so safe to assume that it will be $45-50 this year.

    • 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.
