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 😆

    • 💪💪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...
