Will probably go for this run. Had always wanted to go but put off by the price even though it includes admission.

If not, got to wait for some years before they organize again.

Only joined this run once since the price is on the high side (not a fan of repeated visits to the zoo).

But since this is the final edition, keen to run it for one last time.

The problem is........... it clashes with the Forest Force 50 run that I am also keen to take part....... Sigh.

Hi Beast if i'm in your shoe, i would choose Zoo run over Forest Force 50. Rational 2 reasons: 1) Zoo finisher medal is ELM whereas Forest Force finisher medal is not. 2) Zoo run is taking a break whereas there is always Forest Force 50 2021.

I didn't know this event is so popular...

I've always avoided it, coz its expensive... and I thought the air may not be fresh/ may smell unpleasant :sorry:

The event is unique becos this is the only we can run in the zoo. 

Actually if registered with kids, it is worth it as it doubles as a family outing.

You are right about the air! 

It does smells funky! :crazysmile:

Nonetheless, I would highly recommend running it at least once, if you had not done so because it is really a unique place to have a run. In term of race location, I think it may even rival YRPR for uniqueness.

The race fee is indeed expensive but if you consider that entry to Zoo and safari river park comes with the fee, then it's reasonable. But only if you have to intention to visit the zoo. Else if you are one of those who just run and go home after the race, then maybe it may not be really worth it.

I don't intend to visit the zoo after, so ok, I'll skip this one then, and avoid the scent :bad:

Thanks for the advice! :wave:

Look thru the entitlements. The final edition like nothing extras. 

I ran the first, and skipped the rest. Not very memorable run, but the main thing is the price. Not a fan of the zoo either, so the free entrance to the zoo doesn't entice me.

Will skip the final one too.

Seoul marathon? :(

Not really. A race held in China, will be running on a highway - 40KM straight highway... Sounds interesting.

It's said that the road condition is very good because all the way straight and flat, but just because the straight and flat road is too long, it cannot be qualified to be IAAF label race...

    • Reports from the field: Did three more runs this week. I reconfirm that as long as I keep the pace easy, I have no problems whether I use the buff mask or the one I crafted out of moisture wicking technical fabric (old race shirt). Jogging pace just seems frustratingly slow as molasses though, but given the data posted by the others here, I'm convinced there's really a danger of getting a collapsed lung or a heart attack if you insist on pushing too hard with a mask on, so be warned! If races do ever push through this Nov or Dec, I'll still wear a buff mask (for whatever its worth), even if it you're not required to wear one. I won't be breaking any PRs anytime soon, but that can wait for better times. Long run planned this weekend...       
    • Face masks in the time of COVID-19: Six questions answered (CNA News)      
    • Better check.... That brownish stained color plus description is most likely metal strip rust. Probably design fault didn't expect user to soak overnight and then starts to rust. Of course, if you need to use it urgently for "washroom with no toilet paper" (a premium item now during covid-19)... then use it with no other choice, staining it with the real stuff...discard better...no need to rewash...for it has served the purpose...what a relief! Really when nature calls, you may never know your when you "ultra (layered) mask" may come by useful...btw, please bring a backup mask, just in case, for you still need to Wear Mask Always after using the washroom.... next time toilet-train during Exercise (Run)....endure and stoppage all nature calls..like beyond 1km...3km...5km... then next time you can endure this route for 16km for just 1 "ultra mask"...for Exercise (Run Ultra!)..😷
    • Actually, Events (SCSM or F1) are for the Economy, attracting both locals and overseas visitors to stopover and spend in travelings (Airlines/Airports), lodgings (Hotels) and immersing in the experience of Sports (Participation) and of course, savouring F&B during the Event stay...visit attractions (Tourism). Virtual Meeting/Travel via "Zoom" ...Virtual Run via "Zoom" or "Youtubing" casting... Uncle's VR definition - Virtual Reality - a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world..immersive in experience... we may be moving into this direction after Covid-19...even when there is a vaccine for all...expect changes in the coming months Home-based VR learning start with the kids...
    • everyone has their own agenda on fitness... some have moderate...some have higher... some will race...others simply DIY...some want medals (extrinsic)...some simply go Green (intrinsic)... no comments on what is fitness...cycling and running and swimming... exercise is essentially to burn fat...so which one will burn fat better...uncle chooses running over cycling over swimming...so what's yours? all the best bro...continue to do what is happy for yourself...just define on your own Stay Safe Stay Healthy Safe Happy in 2020...because there is simply no real Race (Run) which has a higher risk...vs..Virtual Run (Home-based)...very safe.. counting down to Sunday...in hours...and MIA...😷
