1. Watertomb is there, I am the white stuff who is always there.
2. Syonan Jinja (昭南神社, Shōnan Jinja, lit. "Shōnan Shrine") was a former Japanese Shinto shrine is also there.
3. Lim Bo Seng is also there.
4. Zigzag bridge is also there. Why zigzag?
5. Which is safer to run MR route at night? clockwise or anti-clockwise or none of the above?

aiyo...someone PM uncle desperately want to know where in the MR route, otherwise no die-DieNotFinish sleep tonight...

1. Watertomb...uncle gives clue 9th km somewhere of macRitchie loop..on lunar 7th month, descendants come, dressed in white, give respect to white stuff...Fann her name...otherwise another clue..Lornie Trail at the only stretch without boardwalk

2. Japanese Shinto shrine...built near Sime Road at the western part of the MacRitchie Reservoir...must travel quite a distance from Sime Track..across thick vegetation...The direct path leading to the shrine is at the no entry sign spot at Tenrentang Trail, but please do not explore alone or risk getting lost in MR...

3. Lim Bo Seng...singapore-war-hero-lim-bo-seng-grave.jpg

4. Zig-zag bridge...



why zig-zag....spirits travel in straight line, so to avoid spirits chasing or following you...you zig-zag...and they bang here and there...ouch ouch..and you run away....

5. clockwise or anti-clockwise or none of the above at night run...of course, direction as long as no face ...NW or 西北


because you are heading first to the Japanese Shinto shrine...beware, after Ranger's stn...then you nearing to Bukit Brown Cemetery after the Golf Course Link..and 9th KM you know who the white stuff lives there forever...Lim Bo Seng is there in spirit not the body...and then the zig-zag Bridge...

So, remember, if you run anti-clockwise of MR route at night, remember to chong zig-zag Bridge, and not to chong to the Amenities Centre just because you can drink, eat and bath, because you have been warned by Uncle why, "they" may be drinking, eating and bathing beside you also...

Good night, can sleep well better after MR25 Ultramarathon Run at night with uncle. Wait Can Finally Sleep zzZZZZ.

Rule 1: Must run minimum 5 laps to get finishing tee and eCertificate

Rule 2: 7pm to 7am, the Winner is the number of laps completed at 7am.

The Organiser shall not be responsible for any "disapperance" of runners due to "unusual and unnatural" circumstances.

Ok, @beast mentioned and that is why, uncle was very "confused" at first


but, it is all clarified, "a last minute change of running route for MR25 last week".

Why change of running route for MR25 last week, maybe: 

(1) the white stuff said last week one night to the organiser, "renovation of my resting place in progress."... all better stay clear of lornie trail...

(2) all better avoid Japanese Shinto shrine after Ranger's station because WWII Jap Soldiers (more white stuffs) were sighted the night before the race-day...lol 😶

(3) skip Lim Bo Seng

(4) no need zig-zag bridge because this is not a night race

Now this explained why last week "change of a last minute running route sure was super crowded."

No surprise it is super crowded as the runners will now be using 1 shared lane, and further more it is a weekend with recreational runners... I would have felt demoralized by the change of route...

    • Avoid East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park, Changi Beach, Punggol...this weekend... go to ulu ones...like ulu pandan...empty adopt SDM...wee hours like uncle's 4am and stop by 6:30am...avoid public transport because "safe distancing" applies...and someone will easily spot runners...because sweaty body will make people complain of body fluids spread via virus...violate "safe distancing" because of you sit too close to somebody...and violate "social distancing" because why you never stay home... don't how lian with your "running" gear like you are runner (limpei is ex-Sundown, ex-Standard Chartered, ex-2XU Compression)...uncle is always with sandals that is why...as though uncle go market buy for family...need to transfer...and being uncle...stubborn lah...yes, bring food back after run...be a shopper...be blamed as shopper... got people go market with running shoes?..normal shoppers in wet market all sandals...even super markets...sandals are normal... wear dark with little brand (hello kitty, pokemon)...to hide your sweat...why sweat too much for what...is it necessary? come on...racing for what...how lian...you can run Ultra? meaning, you don't adopt and there is no need "runner's high" because there is no need to gear for race...only to keep fit...and to be aerobic...because that is the reason just to sweat, because you are "warm up and heated to burn fat"...cool down with more time...what is the rush also...take a walk away from the crowd....or prepare home bound...discreetly...if you can U-turn home bound...or commute safely home bound... yes, trail running is preferred...because most of the time...you are not visible in public preying eyes...the only places congested at MacRitchie, Bukit Timah Hill, and Daisy Farm because got carparks...and also avoid North Hill and Lornie Amenities area...because lots of walkers and hikers can come from Venus Loop via Venus Car Park...these are the ones that visible to the public..and so bad publicity...and avoid...easy target for "Safe Distancing" and "Social Distancing" violations...expect Exercise Ambassadors to catch you there this weekend...which is from Sat tomorrow... Finally, 2M rule (wear Mask always, unnecessary Mingling should be avoided)... 1st M - wear masks to run? 2 scenarios for you: 1) Everyone DON'T wear mask except you 2) Everyone wears a mask except you you can wear Mask for SGUnited...so Mask is essential always...bring along, like your "running" gear  2nd M - maintain a non-sweaty body state like you never violate Mingling with no essential reason...or with essential reason because you want to exercise alone All are welcome share here so that we will update "alert" as well as....yes, CB is only a warmup for Lockdown... as someone has already said... cb sg...become like in Italy when even jogging, park walks are banned...20 March 2020 reported.. because an Italian mayor once shouted out to tell citizens to stay at home   and later very soon....what we have once enjoyed... these places at National Parks or PCNs will be and can be "OUT OF BOUNDS"... because of Covid-19 "Social Distancing" and "Safe Distancing" that we don't know much and we don't really know how that to be implemented in cb sg. Prepare to run round table for 21km...thousands times.. or virtual run watching this video with treadmill or not leave your running sweat and "runner's high spirit" at home and not outdoor...wear mask or not for Social Distancing and Safe Distancing....SGUnited...by then it is up to you for there is no need for 2M Rule at home. 😷
    • I think those who want to run better continue to do so when they can. CB is just another word for lockdown. The problem is the govt is so adverse to the word that it try to be creative with its term. Just like we call it 'Safe Distancing' instead of 'Social Distancing' but everyone knows it mean the same thing. Given the current trajectory, I would not be surprised if very soon, you would not even be allowed to go out for exercise or a walk. (Just like over the causeway)   
    • Great to see some sgrunners from Eastern SG and getting the needed workout today.  Good tips from kohpapa on safety distancing during exercise. I chose an industrial area with a park and saw less than five runners during today's morning run. Continue to stay safe and healthy here during this tough times.😷
