For only 10 km, save your money. No need to register and pay up for any official race. Just mark out a 10 km route and run it yourself [:)]

 

After all, your ultimate aim, and where official record/timing is desired, is the full marathon.

agree... don't waste money on 10k races, most of these are not well organized. you dont need that motivation to run 10k, you can do it at your own. the earliest marathon event with 10k category is addidas sundown around end May, but that cat is only for women, or team. next is army half-marathon which is around august timeframe. i understand what you mean that you want to start on 10k races. i myself have collected quite alot of 10k finisher medals before running the full marathon, but after first full marathon, i lost interest in short races (less than half-marathon), you'll know what i mean when you get there....

When I first started out many years back (maybe 6-7 years back), I'm also very on-the-ball joining many races. But back then, prices were cheap (maybe $10 odd for 10km race). But now, it's so commercialized. You want to find a race less than 30 bucks also got problem. And I won't ever forget that shitty feeling after a Mizuno run quite a few years back (badly organised, poor road marshalling, not enough water, long queues, bags got lost, etc). And we are paying quite close to 30 bucks for that kind of service. From then on, only those marathons or half marathons that is not too expensive, value for money will appeal to me. Anything shorter, I'll do my run in my air-conditioned gym in SAFRA.

Haha. You were there too? Yup, that's the one that broke the camel's back. Too bad, they lost a customer in me, as well as many others who probably gave them a bad word of mouth as well.

 

Treadmill, got queue one meh? SAFRA leh, not your Clubfitt gyms. So far, if I run 1 hour also nobody stop me. [laugh]
