Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

To resolve the no gels or insufficient gels issue, the best solution is to give out bananas only (the cost saving can be reimbursed back for lower registration fees).

Do you think the greedy runners what to stuff his/her fuel belt with bananas ? :lolu:

But one high risk is possible of runners' fall due to misstep on the scattering bananas skin !!! Need better bananas skin disposal management !

Sorry. I have to disagree with you on this. Personally I'm not a fan of banana being given out during races cos its not the easiest thing to try digesting during a race. So I would still prefer gel over banana.

The fairest solution is to provide at least a gel in the race pack so that even the slowest FM runner will get at least one gel. But this has been suggested before and the organiser choose not to do it and rather go by the concept of 'fastest legs get first'. In this case, they can get by with providing a limited quantity of gel and get away with it.

Oops I donno where is my wrist band. Hahaha.

If I'm not mistaken, you can get one at the store. But I'm really not sure so maybe you want to call up the shop and asked first. Its a very cool memorabilia and definitely worth making a trip down. The engraving standard is very good. It will take around 5 mins for the engraving to be done (excluding the queuing time if any) so trying going during the off peak hours if you can.

I remember taking last year's Standard Charterer BKK Marathon, only bananas and fruits were given and not gels. As for me this not an issue as I always prepare more than enough gels just incase I might need it. Having a gel from race organiser is a bonus to me. However if the organiser mentioned gels will be given and there's not, it really looks bad on them.

I went down to Adidas Cathay yesterday to get my wristband engraved during lunchtime. No queue at all and it takes only 5 mins.

We tell them our timing and they engrave or they will check our timing from the SCMS web site? What if I tell them my timing is 3h 01 min , will they engrave it ? :turned:

They will ask for your bib no or name to check the official result site for the timing.

In any case, I dun see the point of engraving a time that is not yrs. Unless you intend for it to be gift for someone else or something.

They retrieve your timing by BIB number.

So we need to bring our SCMS bib as proof that we did the run?

Just tell them your BIB number. The engraving is just the timing without category or name.

Good reference..

Maybe u can appeal to admin to put it as a sticky ? It can attract more new runners to forum when they realised they can find their photo...

Anyonetried eating M&M chocolate for energy during the run?

I used to do that... Will wrap m&m ( those without peanuts) with aluminium foil and pack them for my long runs.

Nowadays, mostly gels... But still occasionally use them for my runs if there is craving :)

I brought a choco bar but it melted, does wrapping them in foil helped?

Remember the saying "M&Ms, it melts in your mouth, not in your hands" ? Well, its actually true. M&Ms won't melt. That's why its a favourite race food for Ironman races back in the "good old days".

    • The finisher medal has arrived... There will be some who will be selected for this one... Good luck and best wishes. 👌
    • well, if this is the run forum, and this is local race, then we talk appropriately about run, and this thread is on run challege - infinite distance - according to any runner's capabilities - anything from 100m...to extremes. So, we focus on this "smugly". and if starfinder, you can talk about multi-event, then you should go to non-running event, and share about your non-run passionate activities...and share your joy and experiences like Biking - OCBC Cycle Singapore 2021... uncle believes starfinder and uncle are looking forward for this weekend...Free 42KM Cycling...today 15 May till 13 June... Registration is FOC and the 42k Virtual Cycling Challenge entitlement is Tote Bag and Medal.  beast is entitled to his diverse opinion about extreme running, and if he is able do attempt the accumulatives of just enough (spread over a period of 4 weeks), then that will be a "smug" distance as the outcome . Just give yourself an opportunity to participate with enthusiasm (which uncle has offered like Virtual Ekiden or Virtual Cross Country 10KM Relay), why not try try and experience yourself with the Challenge of Extremes. Some more, uncle is offering to all an opportunity as Team Captain. As for starfinder, if you want to experience, then sign-up for the challenge, even if you can do 5KM or lesser, why not, weekly for only 4 weeks, 25KM is tee (but you must commit to payment). So how much "smug" contribution can you do in 4 weeks, is what this challenge is all about...that is the reason why we share and discuss here encouragingly and motivating one another...do you want to try try 😀 Update, besides opening this opportunity for sgRunners, uncle has been invited to Join Team...a Team Captain after reading this forum thread, PM uncle at instagram and offered uncle to Join Team.. This team is made up of all types of non-runners of Age Group 40-60+....Hikers, Walkers, Cyclists...as long as your have that pair of Iron Legs that can carry you to the extremes, why not. The Team Captain told uncle, with uncle's Extreme contribution of 700KM, the team can aim for Silver or even Gold...lol...they considered uncle as "Legendary" member...sounded like they just "caught" a Pokemon extreme runner...😆 If you are interested, uncle can also open this Team Iron Legs registration for you to join together as a Team for Challenging Silver and Gold level...and a Team Plague with your name and celebrate as Team effort. Perhaps, Sandy is sharing and discussing if there is a Team from sgRunners...and uncle offered the Challenge to ALL...yes, sgRunners can have a Team to take up the Run Challenge... Anyone? Otherwise, you are also offered to Join Team Iron Legs with the Age Group 40+ and above. so startfinder, are you ready to bike OCBC Cycle for a month of fun Virtual Cycle... of course, uncle is extremely ready for the Challenge.. uncle will clock both Ride (submit for OCBC Cycle) and Run (Unlimited Distance Challenge)...kill 2 Events again with 1 Passion in both Cycling and Running...Maximum is 4 submissions...so 10.5 KM x 4 weekly submission also can 😄    Importantly, don't let Covid-19 variants stop you from pursuing you passion, ALL Races Are Cancelled. Agree with starfinder, pursue your interests besides run, so open a thread discussion with the "besides run" activity, why not? As always, uncle will take up any challenge because it is interesting, achievable and fun always.
    • Uncle @kohpapa passion is in running, so it isn't surprise he can clocked so much distances untiringly 😀 @beast also is correct. Nothing to compare. As said before, nowadays I am happy just to run 5 km or lesser, combined with some static exercises. A matter of personal preference really. Personally, I do not have 'run targets' this year. Don't have Uncle's ambitions 😅 But do have a goal to complete round-the-island cycling and perhaps get a kayak 1 star cert. Running isn't the only sports to enjoy (Uncle don't scold me for saying this in a runners forum). We may just do each different sports moderately. No need go to extremes but still can have the joys they bring!
    • latest: Uncle is registered Round Singapore Challenge... PM uncle if you are ready...😃
    • Let uncle share with you, a similar challenge like this one, is now in progress, but for Individual.. Cellcom Green Bay, Wisconsin (USA) 100miles in May Challenge.   uncle is the only red-dot representative.. how to submit result? daily submission from May 1... ending on May 16...submit as much as you can... current ranking... finisher entitlement..after the Chllange... how much did uncle pay [inclusive of shipment]? So uncle is currently competing and finishing an "overseas" virtual challenge from Wisconsin, USA...  BTW: 1 Mile is 1.61KM..so to catch with the # 1, uncle just needs to chong > HM (13.11 Mile), while 123 are chasing uncle....😄
