Thanks for update.

Strange it's not updated at the website yet.

Here the link to purchase the bus ticket >> https://www.sharetransport.sg/Buspools#/app/routes/event/37

The shuttle bus basically caters for the 32K flag off at 0430hrs so most buses boarding will be 3+

Kinda sux for those running the 18K (like me) flag off 0530hrs. So either you take the bus and idle around for >1h waiting for your flag off time) or u ponied up and take a cab down to race site at a later time.

You must be very unlucky. Must be the YRPR. That service every year a little problematic depending on where you board.

Sneak peek of the personalised ELM medal.

IMHO rather underwhelming. -_-

Did u think the medal design is underwhelming, or the personalised part looks underwhelming?

I thought the personalised part looks nice! Too bad I didnt join this run.

The medal design is OK. I mean even a badly designed ELM medal is usually better than a good design of lousy quality. :bling:

The personalised part is underwhelming to me. But honestly if you ask me what I was expecting, I also cannot answer you. :P

Pink Apple well-known for just 'cutting n pasting' so probably just not updated.

Their last race Batman Run Singapore also says use photo ID at Race Pack Collection but in the end its the QR code on your registration  confirmation.

So have your registration confirmation ready. Or if you can access your email on the phone, then it will work too. Cos that was what I used during the Batman Run RPC. I print the email to PDF but the QR code does not appear. So ended up using my email app to scan the QR code directly.

Some similarities between Oxfitt Run and Newton Challenge :

1. Event organiser is pinkapple
2. Pocari Sweat is the official isotonic drink
3. Running socks are given
4. Held at ECP (earlier Newton Challenge editions) with quite similar race route except Newton Challenge's start line was at Big Splash (it's birth place) and Oxfitt run's start lines is at Angsana Green (both Passion Run and Singtel Race Against Cancer birth place)

Except Newton Challenge provided after race "recovery" food.
