I participated in this year's 10 km run. A good departure from my usual venue or road races. The medal is nice and of good quality and the organizers provided good refreshments at end point at hort park. Highly recommended!

Most likely! The 10 km flag off time is just nice for me to reach there taking train from Bedok, though I may consider the 21 km too as I had not run Telok Blangah Hill. 

Frankly, this must be one of my most memorable race this year.

As a past participant of 2019, for sure I will put this race on the top priority on my calendar in 2020. 😊

uncle may return to "NUS Hill" and Southern Ridges for hilly workout more of sentimental reasons because uncle's hilly races started here from NUS Run, Salomon Tiong Bahru Trial (Urban) Run which covers part of Green Corridor, Telok Blangah Hill, and Passion Mount Faber Run..

Planning to do an Ultra! route..beyond 21km...

Maybe there will be Full Marathon distance for Ridge Runners 10th Anniversary Run 2022.

Did not proceed from Kent Ridge to NUS (due to a Covid-19 case at a remote site of NUS Campus). Exit from Kent Ridge Park to Pasir Panjang MRT. Had breakfast at Pasir Panjang Food Centre beside PP MRT.

Part of uncle's Trans Singapore Hilly Run

Exactly 3 months ago, uncle made this as a goal for 2020, and today, finally completed.

Tiong Bahru MRT >>> Kim Tian Road >>> Bukit Merah Road >> Lower Delta Road >>> Marang Trail (Beside HarbourFront MRT) >>> Mount Faber Hill >>> Henderson Waves >>> Telok Blangah Hill >>> Caonpy Walk >>> Alexandra Road>>> Hort Park >>> Kent Ridge Park CP B to CP A >>> Science Park I >>> Kent Ridge MRT >>> NUH >>> Lower Kent Ridge >>> NUS Sports Recrection (Track & Field) >>> NUS 10KM Route....

Wah, this should be easily half-marathon effort if include NUS Campus...considering hilly terrain all the way.

Abuthen, the NUS route is never be part of Ridge Runners 8th Anniversary Run 2020...

Putting sentimental reason aside, last run here at NUS was with wifey and daughter since both are NUS Alumni...for NUS Run 2013. Wonder if there will be NUS Run 2020?

    • 💪💪POWER~~~~ I salute you sir~~ 👍👍👍
    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done 👍   Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong, can apply.    I scare scare, should I call? 
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...
