salomon trail run.. once popular with challenging trail running when it was held at MacRitchie..now at Tampines MB Park & Trail..has lost its "trail and challenging" element..more of neighbourhood "urban" run..1 lap MB Park + 1.5 lap Trail beside MB Park..should appeal more to trail run newbies (never touch mud)..yap.. the MT Park hilltop can make you pant pant..now more like PAssion NE (Tampines GRC) Trail Run.. in fact..Salomon Tiong Bahru Urban Trail Run 2012 has more places..combo of road run..hill run..KTM track(less) but yet refreshing natural terrain..and neighbourhood..OHBridges..

Not for me again. I don't know how I survived last year at my age! Far more tougher than I antiipated.

bro swtmt.. glad to see u still in active run .. u got try Salomon Tiong Bahru Urban Trail Run?

just to add info on Tampines MTB Park.. this is a private BMX club which only allowed for members who want to MTB.. and for those who want to run..only on designated non-BMX area.. of course, expect non-BMX member bikers to use the tracks..come with many trail names..and how organiser come out with route..easy..combine this trail#1 and trail#3,5,9=5km..then run beyond the Tampines MTB Park trail..maybe another 5km..but why is it the event is held at Tampines MTB Park.. because there is a gate..that can "exit" or "enter"..hence organiser can simply vary the route..and uncle finds that..less "challenging"..and if repeated laps..

last year, uncle attended 2011 NE Run (in conjunction with Tampines Family Day & Carnival).. and supposed to be for 10km run..got to know organiser well and asked how they determine race route..they simply "use google map"..and plot distance..and coordinate with NParks..and on race day..kena cut short to 8km..due to NParks' final decision on the certain trail tracks outside Tampines MTB Park is out-of-bounds for certain safety issues..

go and google map..Tampines Mountain Bike Park..to get a better idea of the expected route..

Me too. Will not be running this year. Hate the route. Too narrow to overtake. Boring. Would prefer Macritchie. Or something similar to TNF.

Same here. Did the first instalment. Hated it as you would get all down and dirty. Heard second year worse. Did it when it was held in MR and though there were many bottlenecks, would return if held there again. Now that it's back in Tampines, no thanks.

good question.. TBC.. for venue.. must be having read this forum.. salomon trail run 2012..if held at Tampines Mountain Bike Park & Trail..again..cannot meet quota of 2,500 (last year was 2,459)..go back to macRitchie trials..then go all the way to lower pierce or dairy farm or central catchment area..get muddy in real rainforest..see monkeys..wild boars..hopefully recover panda missing from mandai..

Though already registered for Brooks Run on 24 Nov, if organisers really change of heart and hold it at MR, will consider signing up for this too.

Other than the venue (Tampines) that deter me from taking part this year, the purple singlet is awful compare to last year's red tee.
