Is There Any Water Points Along Tanah Merah Coast Road?

Recommended Posts

Hi runners! I'm planning on a solo long run during the coming CNY break, and part of my route will pass through the entire Tanah Merah Coast Road. Is there any water point / dispenser along Tanah Merah Coast Road? Thanks.

I believe there is a toilet block past Changi Bay towards Changi Point but most of the area is industry around that area.

Maybe can knock on one of the doors and ask for water if desperate?

BTW would you like to be a team member for a 40km relay?  You have to run 10km anywhere you like

Car Park 7 at Changi Beach - washroom and drinks vending machine...

Compared to last time, the start from Changi Beach has extended for another 8+KM.. and then exit at Tanah Marah Canal with another 6+KM... in this Tenah Merah Coast Road...in the past just 8+ Km...

Along the way, there should be "rest shelters" (counted 5 - spread out every 2.5KM)  good enough for 2 person..with solar powered thrash bins...and of course, no water point/toilet...if you meet with thunder lightning.. be sure to be "drenched" even in shelters...

abutthen.. if you want to "urgently" contribute your poo/sai tank for Climate Change... along the way, there are some illegal "entrance" paths to the New Tahan Merah Coast Beaches...you will see lots of "Kite Wave Surfers"...actually that is why you go Tanah Merah Coastal Road for that...not Run...

Just make sure, you are not captured by CCTVs...drones..or peeping "Toms/Janes"...

Of course, there is always the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal...that will be 15KM from Changi Beach Park 7 Carpark...and 3KM from the Tanah Merah Canal...in the event your legs energy level "punctured" to level -100%...just take bus 38...

Of course, if you should chiong all the way to ECP... then ECP "0"KM shall be your waterpoint...

If you can chiong some more, go all the way to Marina Bay...just 12KM...

Suggest you ride bike, otherwise, if you see another "lone" runner there...hope you meet up uncle...maybe uncle will lead you to "beach" entrance/exit where we could comlete our "flashing" business... then we could swim 5KM to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal....just for Biathlon...Run-Swim-Run..maybe that will be more fun...😁

Seems that this Tanah Merah Coast Road stretch is really 'bare'...

Yes, i'm keen to to contribute to your relay team. Must the distance clocked be just 10km? Or the 10km be part of a longer distance? And how do i join? 😀

Hi kohpapa!! Good to hear from you again!!

I was hoping that 1 of those red shelters would at least have 1 water dispenser. Coming from Loyang, it seems that i'll need to top up my hydration at the last toilet at Changi Beach before hitting Tanah Merah Coast Rd, as the next water dispenser will be at ECP.

Thanks for the advice.

Yah it is pretty bare. The relay is 10km each ..... and could be part of a longer distance. Looks like we have completed team 3. Could open up team 4 but will need 2 others. It is $5 a go. This is the event: https://raceroster.com/events/2021/36984/world-athletics-cross-country-championships-bathurst-21-global-challenge and the thread here is 

 

Let me know if you will sign up and know 2 more to join.

Thanks so much 🙂

Wah, Jerry, you are so lucky to have when you returned to sgRunners forum -

1. uncle offers to chong "Tanah Merah Coast Road" for at least for 16KM without hydration and nutrition....uncle's style is drink stn (vending machine) only at Tanah Merah Ferry Point and then take bus to Tanah Merah MRT....then leave you alone to complete your journey to where you want to go after that...

2. Lady Ice offers you the opportunity to take part as Relay Team member in BATHURST 21 GLOBAL CHALLENGE (1 FEBRUARY - 21 MARCH 2021) ...

solo long run during the coming CNY break

looks like uncle could offer to run with you, persuade you to join as Relay Team member, because uncle is also the Team Captain...and if you just say yes,

uncle shall form a team asap... Team sgRunnersFinal4!...remember you just have to pay your participation and then you shall pay of other add-ons like medal and tee...as Team member

as long as you say yes here...Jerry...welcome to Team sgRunnersFinal4! shall be part of your coming CNY break... you must also prepare to race for 10KM together with us at Runkeeper apps...

Jerry.. you want to do this one..."tanah merah coast" route...at least 18KM if you start from Changi Village to Tanah Merah Canal...and yet you have not reached ECP.. you have 2 waterpoints - Changi Beach CarPark7 and Tanah Merah Ferry Point....once you enter ECP [10.5KM] plenty of washroom with waterpoints + F&B places...

Hi guys! Thanks everyone for the advise and suggestions! I went to ran that route during CNY. I made sure i topped up my hydration at the last toilet at Changi Beach as the next hydration point is at ECP. 

As i ran on a Saturday night, i'm surprised to find out that Tanah Merah Coast Road stretch was not as deserted as i imagined. Ran pass quite a few runners and even hikers, most of them in groups. 

Will definitely plan for another longer run pass that side soon.

    • Uncle shall open up this Challenge to ALL, as Team Captain. Everyone must have read about this Challenge. It is about Individual mileage contributing to Team Total mileage. Simply show uncle your "smugly" monthly mileage. Then at least we will know each team member's contribution to the Team Total mileage. Bronze, Silver or Gold Level You already must have known what's our desired Target. Please read Challenge Terms and Conditions.  As Team Captain, uncle's contribution will be 700KM. What then will be yours? PM uncle if interested. We have until 4 June 2359 for Registration. But, the countdown on the Individual/Team mileage starts from 25 May. Meaning, any running activities from 25 May can be counted as both Individual and Team Mileage. Talk is cheap, so if discussion and sharing can be focussed on you actually have the determination on yourself (both mind and physical) to take up the Challenge, then just reply or contribute positively and constructively, here. @sandy620, do you want to be in this Challenge, since you started this thread? * Virtual Challege is about "Mind" vs "Physical" because you are practically DIY on your journey to say, "Why Not?" 😀   you need to sync your running app or like uncle, a smart watch Garmin already...     Team Name: sgRunners...PM uncle (already smug enough) so when are you "smug" enough to join...just need 25KM to get the tee..we just aim for 1680KM Bronze Level...that's all 😃
    • everyone has their own goal and aspiration... of course, motivation is same as running in a race...how do you feel to run "slower in distance" while many runners chong "faster in distance" than you...they sure feel "smug" of enduring and faster while you will feel "smug" less with fatigue and slowness... uncle admires @autumnrunner because he had injury last year in 2020, and he has shown the interest to pick up where he left off...and we know he wants to make a comeback...and we must respect all who can and those who need to be motivated and comeback in 2021...for 2020 has been a "washout" year for all... from knowing @autumnrunner... he has been always a great endurance runner (talented)...having being overseas marathons (has shared of great experiences from his blogs), and uncle is sure, he can make a comeback during Covid-19 in 2021... running quantity is a great sure way to build the foundation for a better quality in endurance running capability... so @autumrunner... you can make a greater comeback with uncle (sharing with challenges in Virtual Races/Challenges, and some are affordable)...and don't forget, if there should be a Team Relay Marathon Event (virtual or physical run), you should be ready to say "Yes". right? Leaderboard motivation is "not smugly" way to show off... in fact, that is an intrinsic motivation with the "mind" of unlimited distance more than the "physical" of achieving the impossible distance...that is, if everyone can do it, why not, challenge yourself...use "mind over physical".. uncle got to motivate Team sgRunners too..."why not!"...in the Team Events (Ekiden and Global Cross-Country Virtual Race)..."even if we were never be the Elites!"...but we did it!...like the Elites!!...by Just Do Your Very Best!!! Btw, uncle has invited (private chat) Sandy (thread starter) to join us for 10KM Team Relay to see if she is able to join a Team...perhaps, @autumnrunner will you want to join us as Team Member, if are you ready. The Global Cross Country 10KM Team Relay has been extended 31 May. 10KM for Sandy is great enough distance for her...no need what 1680KM challenge...with 100 members...that is what the organizer wants...profit with quantity participation....but you DIY and sponsor in your runs..haha.. Uncle has once (with Lady Ice) invited privately with weeks of running recruitment drives/chat groups to almost ALL in this forum for Global 10KM Virtual Race for Team Members, and respecting why you didn't respond, and accepting reasons why you cannot participate. "Have not been running lately". That was in February. So what is today, May? If you are keen and ready, you are invited. Just PM uncle. When is the best time to pick up running for Physical Run races, because Covid-19 seems to be not over, and already we are moving on to the 2nd Anniversary of Covid-19, with the current knowledge that there is a new variant that is even more infectious. When all races (mass events) are cancelled because of Covid-19 in 2020. Uncle had just received from Singapore Athletics that this month's Local Race (Run Competition) for Pre-SEA Games Selection will have to be cancelled due to tighter Covid-19 measures. First time in 2021. July will be the likely date as announced on their run calendar.  Don't stop your brisk walking, jogging or running activities. Try try any distance...do 1KM..2KM..5km...50km....500km....5000km...clocked them with your running app...daily, weekly or monthly for those who are able...just move on according to your "smugly" ability. "Dubious" running activities are for those who are Riding/Skate Boarding/PMD...just remember to set these activities as "Riding" mode on your Running App and not "Running" records.  All of you, once you were able to do HM and FM during the normal days of Pre Covid-19, so don't stop believing that you can't do these distances during Covid-19. To sgRunnerTeam members who did 10KM Team Relay with Uncle, can you stretch beyond 10KM and run Xtra distance than 10KM...16KM is the great wall of china for HM...Challenge yourself to break it (that took uncle weeks) and surely you will be motivated with a HM Virtual Race/Challenge like the 2XU 21K RUN aka CHALLENGE (6 Max Times Challenge). Otherwise, look for Overseas Virtual "smugly" ones..some come with nice race packs and great medals too...you must earn them as both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. "Smugly", if uncle could do HM, FM or Ultra Challenge, why can't you. 😄 Suely @autumrunner is already a "smug" believer of Virtual Races/Challenges, Just Go for it! Anyone "smug" enough to join uncle for any Virtual Race/Challenge, just PM uncle.  
    • Don't have to compare what you can accomplish with others.  We all lead very different lives, and some people have more time to do what they are passionate about, others not so much. If you only have time to run 50km a month, that's good also. If you can run 500km a month, fantastic, but that's not a bragging right because those who can't clock as much mileage as you do have other more important commitments in life. Life is unfair like that, but that's how the way it goes. Most importantly is to have some time out to stay healthy. Be it 500km or 50km a month. Don't have to feel bad clocking a lower mileage, or feel smug clocking a higher mileage than others.
    • Maybe uncle shares quantity of runs for monthly, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"...you shall start to see 10K+ participants joining for end-of-the-month.. you will notice... uncle is "catching" the top participants...mere HM and FM efforts to catch them...while almost 7,000 are "chasing" uncle... since uncle was previously ranked 3rd in April, so you will notice that for the month of May, uncle will be ranked negatively or postively from the absolute "3rd" position... Those that has sudden risen to the Top 10, look at the +1K or +308, uncle shall place these participants as "dubious", and will "monitor" and expect them if they will be still be competitive in May. They must be consistent, like uncle, otherwise, they are simply "flute" cases...meaning on non-run activities such as biking or boarding... This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the best runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...besides FM Virtual Races...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM from today to make the challenge "700KM" in May 21 a reality. You say you can do, show the results that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM" Monthly Challenge you can do...and sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be also "3rd Position" in May...because uncle will be disappointed to see "RED -ve" that is all...as motivational "push" factor 😃 Update: uncle just recollected in 2020...reported this on the eve of 2020... consistency...determination....perseverance...nothing is impossible.. so where is the top 3 participants of Dec 2020...especially Deric Lau...1660KM....dubiously, Missing In Action in 2021
