My Sundown (Half) Marathon 2011 Result

The official results of the Sundown Marathon 2011 was released, and here’s a look at my Runpix race result statistic.

My time of 1hr 42m, placed me in 42nd place in a field of 3500 men’s finishers. I did not manage to better my PB, but all in all, I can’t complain considering I took part in the Passion Run 25km race just a week earlier!

The certification of appreciation was also available for download and here’s my copy.

Sleep Can Wait Beat The Sunrise

Sleep Can Wait
The fourth edition of the Sundown Marathon took place on the evening of 28 May. It was the first time I managed to sign up for this race, and it was a Sundown half marathon for me. This popular race event (race slots are sold out very fast) consisted of 10km, 21km and 42.195km categories. The full marathon started at 10pm, hence its tagline – “Sleep Can Wait Beat The Sunrise”.

The Sundown half marathon route was relatively straight forward with minimal turns, and the course was very flat. A major distance of the route was the same as last weekend’s PAssion Run 2011, thus it was fairly deja vu for me.

The flag-off time for half marathon was 8pm, but I arrived an hour and a half early to take in the sights of the runners’ village.

Although it was a night run, runners still had to endure a very humid run. I finished the race in 1hr 42mins. Here’s me posing with the finisher medal after the race.

PAssion Run 2011

The 100Plus PAssion Run was back last Sunday and it was my 3rd time to experience the PAssion, and I signed up for the 25km category. It was a dusk-run, and the start-off time at 4.30pm was a real scorcher! It was too damn hot and humid!

Before the runners of 25km were flag-off, the 500m kids dash took place with great fanfare and shouts of encouragement from the parents!

Your Vote Is Your Voice

Come Saturday, 7 May 2011, Singaporeans will go to the Polls to elect their representatives in Parliament. On top of many first-time voters’ mind are the voting process and the secrecy of their vote. MARUAH has produced an informational video to explain to voters why their vote really is secret.

Remember, your vote is SECRET. Vote wisely and vote without fear.
