One small thing...

looks this is the first 21km road run event BYOB, (save the environment and save the event cost, but except for the runners :) 

they said they hv water refill points, but don’t know how many. We know 21km run sweat a lot and sufficient hydration is a must. Any one hv any ideas?

BYOB simply means no cups will be provided.  They will likely just leave the water containers and PET bottles lying on the tables for the runners to grab and fill up on their own .

I am quite sure the usual "hydration point every 2-3km" still applies.

Had put my registration on hold.

Revised size chart is available as per website.

Hope it helps!

So basically they are now using Height+Weight as sizing. Seems to be what 2XU is also doing.

I never understood how the sizing works. Do your height+weight really gives a good indication of the fit?

Anyone who has bought compression shorts before can comment?

2xu sizing works for me... I wear compression tights for running

Alamak. Now then say :angry:

I decided not to sign initially because it was a BYOB race. But I would probably still join if I know it was an ELM medal race. 

I know still not too late to sign up but I already made other plans for that day. :growl:

Here's a clearer view of the front and back of the medals. I dun understand why you need to post a video of the medals (unless it has some moveable elements) when a static picture is so much better!

Distance inaccurate.

Did 1:36 for this race. But then not used to byob format as keep having to stop and refill water bottle, hence building momentum hard.

Inaccurate meaning the distance is too short or too long?

think I saw you at tanjong rhu park connector yesterday evening. you seemed liked just finished your run or something.

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH, WE ARE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 👏👏👏😆😍🤩

As my Garmin recorded, the distance I ran is 20.63KM. Because of BYOB, while I was running, most of the time I had to hold a 500ml bottle in my right hand, which caused me to run off-balance, and made my left hip joint hurt.... The other things are good with around 1500 turnout...

By now we should have already established that the distance will never be accurate in races like this. Those recording personal PB records should also by now know what to do for such issues.

Was asking more about the race experience and logistics....

1 thing good is that they sms you tour results when u cross the finishing line...

would be good if they put wooden planks on the small section of grass patch before going to ecp... it was dark and there are hole on the grass patch...

Every 4km hydration points seems long for me....

    • uncle just want to share about challege...like this one which starfinder and uncle is participating... so both of us registered for free 42km...and we received information for submission of results... So uncle started from 12am on 15 May according the Rules and Conditions... uncle completed within 24-hour...weather is very hot and humid...3 submissions...afternoon - next day before sunrise - and just this morning... submited and verified... ok, uncle got the eCert... so wait 5 July... cool right, FOC...just need 42KM (ride)... actually uncle "ride and run"... got this precious 42KM distance... upload for this one...today (16 May) is the last day uncle needs at least 1 FM distance to catch up to be #1... well uncle is now #1...lol... abuthen  Singapore is 13 hours ahead of Wisconsin, USA...so uncle got to be patient... just to be kiasu and extreme... uncle is preparing for a Half Marathon run tomorrow before 1pm...extremely extreme right? just for smugly reason to "how lian", why not? 😃 oh, almost forgot...something uncle checks daily... ok, past 350KM is a target for 700KM for May...mmm just need HM, FM x 1 or x2 or x3 to reach the Top of SCSM Virtual Club...aiya, looking forward...as uncle has posted previously...those who are handicap with the least number are the real ones..the rest are very "dubious" participants..just chase them for the fun...just catch them like Pokemon GO..pika pika... just need to zzZZZ, rest and recover...😃 We are in CB Paase 2 (Heightened Alert) from today. Wishes all to Stay Safe, Wear Mask and Stay Healthy.  
    • The finisher medal has arrived... There will be some who will be selected for this one... Good luck and best wishes. 👌
    • well, if this is the run forum, and this is local race, then we talk appropriately about run, and this thread is on run challege - infinite distance - according to any runner's capabilities - anything from 100m...to extremes. So, we focus on this "smugly". and if starfinder, you can talk about multi-event, then you should go to non-running event, and share about your non-run passionate activities...and share your joy and experiences like Biking - OCBC Cycle Singapore 2021... uncle believes starfinder and uncle are looking forward for this weekend...Free 42KM Cycling...today 15 May till 13 June... Registration is FOC and the 42k Virtual Cycling Challenge entitlement is Tote Bag and Medal.  beast is entitled to his diverse opinion about extreme running, and if he is able do attempt the accumulatives of just enough (spread over a period of 4 weeks), then that will be a "smug" distance as the outcome . Just give yourself an opportunity to participate with enthusiasm (which uncle has offered like Virtual Ekiden or Virtual Cross Country 10KM Relay), why not try try and experience yourself with the Challenge of Extremes. Some more, uncle is offering to all an opportunity as Team Captain. As for starfinder, if you want to experience, then sign-up for the challenge, even if you can do 5KM or lesser, why not, weekly for only 4 weeks, 25KM is tee (but you must commit to payment). So how much "smug" contribution can you do in 4 weeks, is what this challenge is all about...that is the reason why we share and discuss here encouragingly and motivating one another...do you want to try try 😀 Update, besides opening this opportunity for sgRunners, uncle has been invited to Join Team...a Team Captain after reading this forum thread, PM uncle at instagram and offered uncle to Join Team.. This team is made up of all types of non-runners of Age Group 40-60+....Hikers, Walkers, Cyclists...as long as your have that pair of Iron Legs that can carry you to the extremes, why not. The Team Captain told uncle, with uncle's Extreme contribution of 700KM, the team can aim for Silver or even Gold...lol...they considered uncle as "Legendary" member...sounded like they just "caught" a Pokemon extreme runner...😆 If you are interested, uncle can also open this Team Iron Legs registration for you to join together as a Team for Challenging Silver and Gold level...and a Team Plague with your name and celebrate as Team effort. Perhaps, Sandy is sharing and discussing if there is a Team from sgRunners...and uncle offered the Challenge to ALL...yes, sgRunners can have a Team to take up the Run Challenge... Anyone? Otherwise, you are also offered to Join Team Iron Legs with the Age Group 40+ and above. so startfinder, are you ready to bike OCBC Cycle for a month of fun Virtual Cycle... of course, uncle is extremely ready for the Challenge.. uncle will clock both Ride (submit for OCBC Cycle) and Run (Unlimited Distance Challenge)...kill 2 Events again with 1 Passion in both Cycling and Running...Maximum is 4 submissions...so 10.5 KM x 4 weekly submission also can 😄    Importantly, don't let Covid-19 variants stop you from pursuing you passion, ALL Races Are Cancelled. Agree with starfinder, pursue your interests besides run, so open a thread discussion with the "besides run" activity, why not? As always, uncle will take up any challenge because it is interesting, achievable and fun always.
    • Uncle @kohpapa passion is in running, so it isn't surprise he can clocked so much distances untiringly 😀 @beast also is correct. Nothing to compare. As said before, nowadays I am happy just to run 5 km or lesser, combined with some static exercises. A matter of personal preference really. Personally, I do not have 'run targets' this year. Don't have Uncle's ambitions 😅 But do have a goal to complete round-the-island cycling and perhaps get a kayak 1 star cert. Running isn't the only sports to enjoy (Uncle don't scold me for saying this in a runners forum). We may just do each different sports moderately. No need go to extremes but still can have the joys they bring!
    • latest: Uncle is registered Round Singapore Challenge... PM uncle if you are ready...😃
