[Comment] Looks like MetaSports is handling the race logistics again this yr. So probably will more or less follow the same format as last yr. They did an OK job last yr but some size for the finisher tee ran out and the stage programme over-ran horribly. One of my streak run so will probably consider continuing.

This race changed to an evening race last year... the weather was punishingly hot last year for those taking part in the 21.1km category... I still prefer it to be in the morning.

There were 21.1K, 12.8K and 6K last year.

I would be very surprised if they deviate from the template that they have established. :crazysmile:

By my estimate, apart from the race fee and entitlements, I expect the rest of the details to be virtually identical from last year event.

We'll see when they launched the Early Bird pricing in 9 days time.

Hope they cut down on the excess like running backpack and water bottle and keep the fee reasonable this year. There was a big jump in the race fee last year from previous years' editions. It was no longer one of the cheapest HM on the racing calendar. 

No b2b clash with HomeTeamNS Real Run this year. The b2b  nutz would be crushed. :crazysmile:

Which distance are you joining for Nutz?

You can stop at any checkpoint for Nutz, take a cab down to do this run, after this run cab back to the same checkpoint to resume the Nutz run.

Are you that Nutz to do it?  :crazy:

Holy cow! :startle:

When I mentioned nutz, I was referring to the fact that last year Real Run was the next morning. So I know of a few nutz who ran CSC-Real Run b2b.

I did not realise that Craze Ultra is happening this year 12-13 Oct. So I guess b2b nutz will have something to look forward to after all. :crazysmile:

If it's morning race, then most likely might do as bbday race.

From the poster lonewolf posted up there, its a sunset race. Guess the timing will be like last year, but agree that it was horribly warm last year when the race started around 5-6pm. It was only slightly cooler after total sunset. Race atmosphere was not too bad last year although the venue was GBTB east.

It will be at GBTB East again this year. LIke I say, template :crazysmile:

Of all the usual race venue, GBTB East is the one I really hate becos it's so inaccessible if bridging shuttle bus is not provided. If template remains, then we should have bridging shuttle bus again this year. :innocent:

Bridging shuttle service to and from stadium mrt was quite good last year, queue was long at the end of the race but moving fast.

1st post updated with registration info and runner's entitlement. 

$3 race inflation this year bringing the HM rate to $65. That's more expensive than I what I paid to run SCSM last year. And also more expensive than 2XU Compression Run. There's also no loyalty rate for past participants. 

Yes the extra goodies are fine but what good is it to include stuff that you dun usually use? The runner's backpack they give last yr is gathering dust at one corner of my room. I can see the same happening for the runner's sling bag. 

This is one of my streak races so I am reluctant to stop if there is no compelling reason to do so. Perhaps one thing going for it is that I foresee a drastic drop in the number of races I do this year (not by choice but just because the number of events seems to be smaller this year)

Is this race worth paying more than 2XU and SCSM? Quite frankly the answer is no. 

At least they seem to have listened to the feedback by pushing the 21.1 flag-off to 1745 this year. Last year, it was 1715. 

And the lucky draw segment seems to have been cut totally. What a shame!

Yeah, agree that it is good they are listening to feedback to push back the start time. I do remember the weather got better when it was nearer to 6pm. 

Something new this year is the team relay? Think they lost some participants due to asics relay last year so they try to make up for it?

And they're also going eco friendly this year. "Join us on this eco-friendly journey and use the reusable cups given out at the finish line for your drinks. Take the extra step and choose the opt out option for your bag and t-shirt/singlet." I've thrown/donated the hydration backpack given last year so I guess I dont mind the eco friendly option.

Agree with you on this. I would prefer 2XU for its race tees and finisher shirts. As for SCSM,  no other local race has such number of closed roads for runners. The race atmosphere is just so different. I hope SCSM would be held at Orchard again as in previous years.

    • We can give you kudos   No worries @kohpapa - me too will exit as been spending way too much time on social media Seems like have been more like the doomsday person..... but it is certain we must all continue to respect social distancing, wear masks when in confined spaces (I know Sg is different) like public transport to protect others..... or we go for herd immunity. If you want to see what that is looking like, check out Brazil. It is very sad that Bolsonaro is happy to sacrifice the poor and the indigenous people who will have no immunity (there was one tribe that was badly affected with the common cold). The indigenous people have been helping to protect the rain forest and illegal logging has increased in these times. For Bolsonaro, this means the virus can remove a people that was "blocking progression" and further exploitation of the Amazon. His only concern is the economy https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/30/south-america-indigenous-groups-coronavirus-brazil-colombia   FYI how a disease can affect a whole tribe: https://www.survivalinternational.org/articles/3132-tribal-people-health-interview-professor-stafford-lightman
    • Have tried running with a mask a little, but found it impedes taking in air if doing a hard run.  Have instead been giving people a 10 metre distance as well as running when there are fewer people outside (the dinner or lunch hour). Though do note we might have to get used to running with a mask. Have been attending some seminars with run organisers (NYC, Chicago, Berlin, Singapore, etc) around the world who are toying with the idea to ask people to wear a mask in their events.... I'll try to write  a blog post to update every one of further thoughts.  Interesting that runnersworld have picked that up as well (thanks for the link @RaijinFJ)
    • I do. The authorities in Singapore are a bit more enlightened- you’re exempt from wearing one during strenuous exercise, provided you run solo, but here we have to wear one at all times. I know its probably not effective compared to a medical grade mask, but if it reduces the risk by even just 3-5%, that matters. Besides, medical grade masks should be reserved for medical staff only. I know other members have already posted Youtube videos in other threads about the guy who recorded a 10k run in his government issued mask, but I’ll also share my notes/observations if it may help other runners.   First of all, running in a mask is hard.   I’ve experimented with different types. I tried plain cotton, and even sacrificed an old race shirt for its technical fabric to craft a mask, but the results were the same. The moment it gets wet, it’s almost impossible to breathe.   What I use now is what we call in some parts of the world as a “buff”. Something like a scarf/tube stocking you slip on your neck and pull up to cover your mouth & nose. Most pictures on the internet are connected to commercial websites (and I’m not indorsing brands or selling products) but if you Google “buff mask” and select “images” from Google Search, you’ll come up with something like this so you can see what I’m talking about: https://www.google.com.ph/search?q=buff+mask&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi19aiO-c7pAhVPyYsBHQlFBSsQ_AUoAXoECAsQAw&biw=1366&bih=625   It’s the same though. The moment it gets wet with sweat or moisture from your breathing, it will impair the airflow so it gets hard to breathe, but I prefer it as it seems less restricting than a standard ear loop mask. It offers some sun protection too. Its fine during the first 20-30 min (around 5km) but beyond that, it gets progressively harder as it gets more and more damp. The sun overhead and the 32C heat here doesn’t help either. (I know its hot in Singapore too)   On one 25k long run, whenever I’d try to push the pace faster than 6 min/km (race pace for a slowpoke like me) I notice my heart rate goes up and I really struggle as my breathing gets heavier, but I can’t maintain the pace because it’s like breathing on a run through just one nostril.   I know this is contrary to what legendary coach Arthur Lydiard taught when he said: “Breathe through your mouth. Breathe through your nose. Suck the air in through your ears if you can!” but we didn’t have a pandemic at the time.   While there was also a report about a runner that died from a collapsed lung running in a mask in China, I’m pretty sure he had some other preexisting health condition. The stress from running in a mask probably just aggravated it, or he was just some novice who simply ignored the warning signals and still pushed too hard. Whether grizzled veteran or new runner, we must never forget the cardinal rule to always listen to our bodies.   My humble suggestion as a fellow runner is to experiment with what works for you. This is not the “new normal” as most people say nowadays, I consider running with some sort of face covering as a necessary evil for the time being, a “temporary normal” until a vaccine to this plague can be found.   What I’m going to experiment on now is bringing along 3-4 buffs in a pocket or tucked in a running belt, wrapped in plastic (to keep them dry) and changing into a fresh buff every 8-10k. That should be enough to last a marathon, but it just seems so tedious. This virus is really a royal pain… By the way, I'll also share a link to an article in Runners World (if it's allowed in this forum. Admins., kindly edit if not) It seems pretty good:  https://www.runnersworld.com/training/a32380203/running-with-mask-impact-your-performance/ Hope to have helped.
    • yes, uncle ran with "cori" masks... reusable doesn't mean it is to be recycled for too many times after wash? Definitely, FOC "cori" issued is not really like the Trademark one...even after several washes...several is not unlimited...consumer one and not medical-related disposal...uncle understands if need to dispose after several washes, then better dispose lah...when, you start to smell funny...and after so many years of your life...finally you discovered your breadth really smell like s***....aiya..kidding with reasons...read on... It is absolutely, quite "unbreathable" for Strenous Exercise (Run) especially if the chosen route is on Pavement (shared with Bikers/Walkers) and not PCN. Stoppages and dodging...good if you need to master "Kung Fu" stunts and steps to avoid close "safe distancing" measures, then you must wear mask always is to protect all on the Pavement with social distancing. Great. Heavy breathing means you actually return the to the Clean Air (particles still stick to your breadth from your mouth) You Breathe Out...hopely you no Eat Mala Spicy Hot Food or Halal Rendang or Japanese Shuhi..before you do Exercise (Run)... Importance on Wearing Mask Always along Pavement is you are always in close contact in a narrow path, unlike PCN where you can practice Safe-Distancing like 2 metres (practice in UK by @Lady Ice), as for Uncle 3 metres. Every breadth you give out, there are lots of Bacteria (unless you are sure positive Virus named "Covid-19 Positive" is tested)...and you know Bad Breadth is caused by Bacteria, and not Covid-19 Postivie right? It is known, Covid-19 infection does let the host has the sensation of there is "no taste" after all...even tasting of lemon or lime is...what is that like nothing one...     Well, as uncle has been following strictly on the CB rules, wear Mask only if you are not Exercise (Run) on Not-A-PCN. Respecting the protocol, if forced to take Pavements (Not-A-PCN), then Exercise (Walk) and Wear Mask. Otherwise, Run (Exercise) without Mask. As for your "cori" mask durability question, are you currently Exercise (Run) daily?  Then, it all depends on your Diet. Maybe can practice Safe Mouth Hygiene before Run (Exercise)....hopefully not disinfectant..like someone respectfully said as "joke"...that one time activity (distinfectant) makes sure...uplorry for untested Covid-19 virus (negative) looking for a host or someone's life that has nothing to do Covid-19 in the first place..just want to Exercise (Run). Sad. Singaporeans to be given improved reusable masks in third nationwide mask distribution exercise (info - https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health/singaporeans-to-be-given-improved-reusable-masks-in-third-nationwide-mask) Good news, looks more "cori"ed enough, don't you think so, from tomorrow onwards (26 May) for collection...vending machines. Btw, it is time to dispose that FOC "cori"ed First One, which uncle still have. Yes, only uncle knew how bad breadth uncle had for life. At least uncle has that sensation of "bad" smell, better than no sensation at all...meaning only one thing...Covid-19 kena...aiyo..don't say suay thing...pui pui...aiyo cannot spit...aiyo never wear mask....fine, jail or both. Wishes everyone are staying healthy and safe during this COVID-19 period.
    • I hope everyone are staying healthy and safe during this COVID-19 period. Just wondering if anybody is running with reusable mask during this period?  wore my government issued "cori" masks for my runs and had to replace it twice with the CB period.. They are indeed not very durable...
