but the heat will make 1 lust for water.... makes 1 thirsty so easily .....better drink more @ each station =D

Haha John boy, this is not Northface event where they serve us 100plus drinks with ice. If one drink too much water is also no good as it shall hindrance the performance. You can read this from other threads.

Frankly speaking, larger majority of the runners would not be carry much because they are aiming for the timing. You shall know what I mean when you carry extra to run on the actual day. You have 1:30 to 2:00 hours of window in the initiate run without the sun; seize this opportunity.

If a mere completion is the game, then perhaps it helps as the drinks could be running short when you come back after 5:00-6:00 hours. The worrying part is the final 5km, sometime they do run short a little if you are not the front pack.

And John boy, you are never a slow runner, in fact you are a sub 4 engine. ^_^

Haha...thks for the infor. Would not be running w water bottle as the water stations seem quite well located between one another. Just intend to put maybe 1 gel, 1 energy bar, key and a bag of jelly beans in my back pocket (hope it doesn't burst). Who wants jelly beans come and get from me that day hor, while stocks last :)

Gd run this morn! Did about 20k as tuesday have IPPT so conserve some energy. Pretty hot after 8.30am. We should be out of fort road on actual day so good for conditioning :)

hmmm...did you join us for the FatBird run this morning...if so, can you link your name/face to your nick? This old bird very hard to keep track of all the new and young birds lor...hehe

U're are a very fast bird ok! I'm in red singlet w PI tights. Face dunno how to link...not too ugly, got hair and not greying yet, human size is XS or S. I'm a guy btw in case u think I look like my avatar. Like that can?

ok...haha...not gal har? but your avatar really look very shwe...hehe

I think there were a couple of guys in red singlet....no problem....u can identify yourself when the group photos come out :)

You followed which Pace Group? Hope you had a good run today in what is surely one of the tougher ones compared to those few weeks back.

Haha...group photo maybe blocked. Followed 4:30 pace group initially then dropped back for toilet and then ran ahead when they go for toilet break. Turned around at traffic lights for 20k and come back 1h57m.

Noticed that holding water bottle seems to affect running quite a bit right? Need to use more effort

Hi Phoenix,

You need not carry any bottle on the actual day as they do serve the drinks sufficiently. Every gm will weigh like 1kg after 35km mark. Traditionally I would not be carrying any bottle on the actual event. It's up to your own preference. :)

nono la .... i tested out on my body..... not only northface or wad so ever.... NB RR was fine becos of the sufficent water point i would say..... but apparoching the end @ the taxi run way...for those who took part i think can feel the heat .....and the lust for water is v strong.... ( let alone nice and chilled 100+ ! )

hot weather in shaded place is fine.... but when exposed to the sun..... its really v irritating.... it just so hard to maintain the speed, i even slow down to prevent my body for over heating ! but i am still learning to cope with it la .... =D

Thanks for organising the training. It was a good run for me today, at least I managed to sustained running the main bulk of the 24km as compared to the one last week.

Kudos to Team FB! =)

*I was the big sized guy with white sleeveless and grey shorts, running with the 5:30hr pace group, but eventually dropped to running alone due to insufficient water on the return leg off NSRCC.*

What some of us did was we poured cold water on our head + body during the final phase of the marathon. To keep one cool when the weather is really hot. ^_^

I saw the fatbird team when i did my run earlier this morning :P

Around 8am,i saw you people at area D running in cadence? ^_^

I was doing my own practice using the siglap park connector to ECP area C4 to area F & back to siglap park connector to bedok reservoir park.

Hey Trailblazer I saw you, I was with the 21km pacers. You were so fast and overtook us, I didnt have the chance to say hi.

Really?I am not that fast lah :redface: Thanks!Yep,I was wearing SCSM 07 blue singlet and a white sweatband ^_^

Like what i mentioned earlier,i was doing a 20km run with 1hrs 50mins and i had to run back to bedok reservoir park area. that is why i didn't stop to say hi to you people =X

kopibaby,

thanks for asking. Many are keen to know the identification of TFB at startline.

We are working out the final details and preparations, and will inform all the coordinating instructions and pace strategies a few days before the BIG DAY. Stay tuned :)

    • 💪💪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...
