I'm excited to complete my very first 32KM race at Oxfitt Run II. The weather was very good. The venue - ECP was great (as always). The distance markers are accurate and obvious. The route design was smart, no congestion with other categories runners. The organization was wonderful. The water stations are sufficient with plenty of plain/isotonic/cold/normal temperature water. This allows me to follow my strategy to consume energy gel and salt tablets, and I successfully managed to control my HR in a safe range and prevented muscle cramps from happening.

In a sense this is the rehearsal for my SCSM FM, there will be 10 more kilometers left for me. But I know anything could be happening in the remained 10KM. (Looking at the race route of SCSM, from around 37KM to 38+KM, we will be running up to Benjamin Sheares Bridge, hopefully I could survive...)

Less than 4 weeks away from SCSM, let's continue...¬†ūüí™

The two medals have the same defects, inherited from the same master metal mold.

I think it’s the design

One think I recall there was no gel, although the guide mentioned water point opposite finish line should have. Anyway already used to the organizer skimped on it so did bring gel on my own.

I did see gels and pick some at 13KM water station, just passed the Bedok Jetty. Maybe the stock is limited.

Agreed. This is by design. The¬†artistic effects of engraving....¬†‚ėļÔłŹ

High five gels were given towards to 20 plus KM . It was in a box and placed in 1 corner of a table, you could have missed it because it was hard to spot if you are those grab and go type runner

Yup got gels. I was a slow 2:40 18km finisher and I got a gel (& there were lots left)

Right at the beginning of the table - grab a gel, then grab some water. It was Super sweet....

I am even slower than you and I was so surprised that there were still gel because usually gel runs out for slower runners than me.

I like Hi 5 better than GU because of its more watery consistency makes it easier to swallow. But it's bit more troublesome to store if you have a smaller running pouch. 

Hmm.. everyone so busy talking about medal defects and gel, no one posted the result links (which has been out for a few days now).

Hi, I just got it from my friends. You may want to check with your friend or consult the doctor, as it may make your stomach uncomfortable, so¬†I'm cautious to share it. Thank you for your understanding.¬†ūüėä

No problem Bro. I guess these tablets should be able to be purchase from Guardian. 

I got some cramps when I run into 28 km. I guess partly is because lack of salt intake as I took just gel and plain water all the way.

Previously, even half a year ago, as long as I ran further than around 13 - 14KM, for sure muscle cramps will come. Now during the recent 30KM LSDs, I took salt tablets every 6KM, then did never experience cramps; and probably it's also because recently I ran longer and increased mileage. "Fingers crossed"....

Yes, consistent long distance training will help. As I run that distance only once a week, I think got to prepare such 'supplements' to be on safe side.

    • Now that you are excited about what is ahead of 2020, uncle shall end last post in this forum with this local video production which have inspired uncle to Run Around Singapore. Enjoy. ¬† ¬† ¬† Wishing all, your families, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.¬† End
    • my dear @Lady Ice, let uncle explains simply... Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda The Abbott World Marathon Majors is a series consisting of currently 7 of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world. Wanda Group or Dalian Wanda (Chinese: Ś§ßŤŅěšłáŤĺĺ), is a Chinese multinational conglomerate based in Beijing. China's Wanda buys Ironman Triathlon owner for $650 million. Wanda¬†Ś§ßŤŅěšłáŤĺ嬆markets and promotes those cities that are in this exclusive club. IAAF provides¬†the sanctioned Road Race Labels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) Rules and Regulations to any country which want to host must meet the strict selection trial required as entry to the¬†Abbott World Marathon Majors. Invitation¬†to World ranking runners must be regional, not continental only. Singapore, being having the financial resources, has the advantage. The disadvantage is the size of participants. So to increase the size and qualifying runners, she needs to invite also regional runners to participate. Expect STPB (like what @lonewolf¬†said) to aggressively promote the Hub of Marathons.¬†¬†
    • Ok - so am old lah ūüėõ¬†- been¬† on this forum for far too long...
    • Saga 1: The SA's internal carding system - which allocates athletes up to $1,200 per month based on various criteria - had expired month without the necessary follow-up. (info:¬†https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/officials-say-track-body-must-sort-out-disputes) ¬† Saga 2: Against paying Singapore Athletics share of award money¬† (info: https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/football/soh-against-paying-sa-share-of-award) ¬† Summary: Soh (did not take part), Michelle Sng (did not win a Gold Medal), and¬†Shanti Veronica Pereira ( Collected 2 Bronzes), the 2 Sagas will not affect Shanti Veronica Pereira because she can stay on¬†with the $1,200 monthly allowance, happily with her Coach, and she gets her 2-Bronze Award for her Performance (and surely gladly give 20% to SA). SA will be delighted with the 2-year Excellence Peak Performance Program till 2021. The greatest loser in the Sagas is Soh because he will not have both - $1,200 monthly allowance, and already based on his PB, he could have collect a Gold¬†Medal from 2019¬†SEA Games with an Award of $10,000. Even if he will be unwilling to share with the 20% to SA. SA only loss "$2,000" but save $1,200 monthly allowance for Soh for the next 2 years (savings of $28,800). SA -+$28,600 vs Soh -$10,000 - $28,800 (2020-2021) As for Michelle, she already said she wants to retire in 2017, but the surprise Gold Medal on that year makes her a defending Champion. Pain, Injury and Tears - for every jump. Plus she has reached beyond 30, and to be family-focused should be her entitlement in life. High Jump has given her a sporting life and to announce her honourable retirement from the call of Nation. It will be expected. SA - which has been controversial from the core. Change the whole SA? How many times have SA changed? Life as Usual. No change is better then to Change. Whatever. Marathon has been a Gold Medal for SEA Games. We will surely make a comeback. Without SA, marathoning is the only key spark in Athletics that even without¬†$1,200 monthly allowance, Mok and Soh can be regional champions. So you know what Mok's Saga with SA, "Uncle, you say¬†lah, the $1,200 monthly allowance, don't have money how to go overseas for marathon qualification mark closer to SEA Games, use personal paylah!" Now, everyone knows what is SAga is about right? "Money Not Enough, how to run overseas Marathon races." "What I win, is all Mine not yours, SA."¬† "SA :¬† gain $28,600 vs Soh¬†minus $10,000 minus¬†$28,800 (2020-2021)" "Ashley Liew demands S$120,000 in damages from teammate Soh over ‚Äėfalse‚Äô claims about sportsmanship act still outstanding."¬†¬† Uncle wishes Soh Gets Lots of Money for¬†the year of the Metal Rat (2020).¬†¬† ¬†
    • The shorter answer may be there are many IAAF races but only 7 WMM (at the moment). So its a combination of scarcity and prestige.¬† And one more thing. STPB no more P liao. STPB was established in 1964. Nowadays it just¬†STB¬†(since 1997!)
