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.

    • 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....😄
