adidas KOTR 2011

After several road races where organizers tried to outdo the competition by coming up with ‘out-of-the-box’ themes and running routes in far-flung starting point, I was back at familiar territory with the Adidas King of The Road (KOTR) 2011 run at the Padang in the early morning of 28 Aug.

The race distance was 16.8km with the start point on Esplanade Bridge and finishing point at the Padang.

Coming on the back of some rather disorganized races earlier, this adidas kotr was a very well organized race, befitting this global sporting brand that is Adidas. The route, which brings runners past many icons in the Marina Bay area, was adequately marked with huge visible distance-marker, and water-points were long to accommodate the massive throngs of thirsty runners. Overall, I had a very satisfied race experience, and I’m sure most, if not all of the runners, local and overseas will agree with me.  Let’s take a photowalk of the post-race carnival.
