A race which i enjoy when it was at the Changi Coastal Road area with four different terrains to run in... 

I remembered we argued about this before but ... what are the four terrains again?

I recalled it being only 3: Tarmac (Road), Trail and Sand.

Four terrains? Hmmmm......

Was it?

1. Road, trail, sand, footpath; or

2. Road, trail, sand, runway

🤔

2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition. For the first time – 21 km race route. First multi-terrain half-marathon locally

answer - taxiway, road, sand and trail

note: taxiway - a route along which an aircraft can taxi when moving to or from a runway

Almost 2 months ago before the end of 2019, uncle had an Ultra! Run:

Tampines JC (Tampine PC) >>> Loyang PCN >>> Changi Village >>>Changi Beach Park >>> Changi Coast Road >>>Tenah Merah Coast Road>>>ECP>>>Marina Barrage 

Remembrance: Sundown Ultramarathon Routes

The (Old) Changi Coast Road used to be an eventful route for many races - past editions of Sundown Marathon which then started from Changi Exhibition Centre. Also, most of the Bike and Run of Triathlons were held here.

2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition had its Road/Taxiway Run, meaning at the Start Point (Taxiway already).

Of course, the Taxiway did not imply Runway 1 or Runway 2 (Changi Terminal 1, 2 and 3)

Old Changi Coast Road, Aviation Park Road and Changi Exhibition Centre remembered. Fast forward...

today, there is a New Tenah Merah Coast Beach..for windsurfing and kitesurfing....many had entered illegally to "State Land - You will be Arrested for Trespassing" warning boards, vehicles entered to the coastal beaches.

Yes, if ever there is such a multi-terrain-ed route again: Run Trail (plenty of coastal routes with "State Land" boards), Run Sand (plenty), Run Road (Tenah Merah Coast Road - 14KM + stretch with no amenities), Run Taxiway 3 (at Future Terminal 5).

Meanwhile, uncle is happy "surfing" kite @ Aloha Tenah Merah Coast Beach.

Thanks Kohpapa. Totally forgotten about the Taxiway at the start/end point.

Miss running that route at Changi Exhibition Centre with the different terrains. Hope somebody bring it back someday.

Taxiway - I always remeber it as runway. 

I miss that mini beach sand. A break from hard ground!

But hot sia for slow joggers like me by the time I reach the sand part 😆

    • Congrats Uncle for hitting your goal!
    • uncle started inspiration from Dr Phil Maffetone on Endurance Training and Racing for Triathletes Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier? Learn how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic  I borrowed from National Library Board many years ago, better plan to get it soon...All NLB will close 7/4 to 3/5 during the 1-month Circuit Breaker because of Covid-19. Importantly during the 1-month Sports, to learn and adopt proper techniques (mechanics) in multi-event Running, Cycling and Swimming. To be efficient means discipline to do it right, and do the right thing all the time. Nothing is Impossible. Everything is Possible.  
    • 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? Completed NUS-Southern Ridges as part of uncle's Trans Singapore Hilly Run. Where next, NTU.
    • tsk...tsk...tsk...@Lady Ice...off track...the rest are on👌 track... great to hear back from you...UK "live" reporting for sgRunners 😷
    • Have suggested to some large events that they consider changing their model for this time and do virtual runs / a league ladder to help inspire people to get active (not referring to those on here) @RaijinFC there are a lot of positives from this pandemic. With the lockdowns - a new normal is occurring and am hoping capitalism evolves. We now see who really are the important "key people" in this world and that they should be paid better / pay no tax / have better benefits. The air smells better in the UK with the lack of planes / manufacturing and have spoken to many people who said they are sleeping better. I presume this is from the reduction of running around trying to do the social thing, keeping up with the latest gadget..... when the economy is kick started people should look to buy local to help their local companies...... anyway better not write too much cos get scolding for being off track.
