  1. An overcrowded and congested race.

    I trained for a 6 to 6:30 pace. The park area is soooo narrow one could not pace properly with crowds of pormatic but walking Singaporeans. I realized Filipinos have more tolerance for pain. Worst part is the convergence of 21 and 42 runners after the heartbreak bridge – all 40,0000 plus runners which made it look like a people power experience rather than a marathon.

    There is more to brag about Philippine Runs (organization and all except the pollution). I saw the Finish line with enthusiastic Pinoy runners finishing strong, compared to the “other walkathoners” that look like they are about to faint.

    I saw my record at 6:15 for the 42. Only to realize that my ranking is still at the 7,897th place or upper 40% compared to the rest of the 19,600 FM participants.

    To enjoy the architectural wonders of SG – yes. But not to set new PRs. I do not recommend this race to anyone.

  2. @andrew: I agree. Aiming for a PR is really hard to accomplish especially big events like this. Too crowded, less water stations but pretty organized. I usually just enjoy the run, the view of the SG & the freebies I got from the staff tent.

    I will be running again next year plus vacation. See you next year.

  3. This was a very memorable experience for me. 1st 42k for me and i did it mostly barefoot. finished 5:51 alongside the other PF runners. :) i would recommend this run for the experience of having an international run. :D

  4. worth an experience… meeting Filipino runners from different regions/cities…exchanging hi’s and smiles… wishing good lucks… and most of all finishing strong as you cross at the finish line… and say i made it no matter what!
