10KM 2XU Compression Run 2016 Review

First race that I woke up late for and ended up in the second wave. Now I know how the wave system functions!

Race Goodie Bag

I didn’t collect the race pack myself so I can’t comment on collection, but the race pack is actually quite decent with physical sample products. There is one Soyjoy bar, Garnier Men facial wash, Tigerbalm muscle gel, one strip of Acti-Tape, and one running pouch. The running tee does not have any logos to indicate that it is for the 2016 2XU Run which I thought was great since some running tees just have too many huge logos everywhere.

Training

I did my usual runs as part of my training for the Sundown Marathon, I didn’t particularly train at my 10KM ideal race speed so I was not aiming for a PB. I just thought that it will be a good race since I’m running with a friend.

Soon it was 7am and the runners that were lined up in front started running. Being at the back of the pack, I didn’t move forward much, and only manage to slowly walk forward. Soon the line stopped moving and we had to wait for a while and the second wave started 5 minutes later.  Continue reading “10KM 2XU Compression Run 2016 Review”

It was a 2 day collection over the weekend (12-13 Mar 2016), 2pm-9pm. I went an hour before collection closed so there was no crowd.

Aljunied Community Club is under a HDB block. It was very easy to locate the block and there were clear signs pointing me to the right room for the race pack collection.  Continue reading “Carnival Run @ Bedok Reservoir 2016 Race Pack Review”

Brooks Run Happy 2016 Race Pack Review

I collected my race pack for Brooks Run Happy over the weekend. It’s really happening, my first race of the year! Collection was at Key Power Sports located at Velocity@Novena Square. There were 2 days, Saturday and Sunday for the race pack collection, and I went on Sunday at around 3pm.

The collection was a rather low key event. There was a Brooks Run Happy promo banner outside the shop so you will know which shop to go to. Continue reading “Brooks Run Happy 2016 Race Pack Review”
