I think I’m turning into a running/fitness wannabe.
Why? Because after barely surviving the Nike Goddess Run (which went better than expected in spite of NO training) which was over a distance of 5km, I have taken up the most natural next challenge: a 10 km run – which I really have to train up for because I’ve never run that far before in my life.
Sometimes I think I have a death wish.
But anyway, if you are like me (running diva wannabe who is dipping your toes into organized runs), or you are already a seasoned runner, one of those who can run 42 km like its nothing – and you’d like to join the Sundown Marathon, here’s where you can sign up for it.
Before you can start the registration, you’d need a Hivelocity (the organizer) account, which you can easily and instantly create by submitting a username and password:
You can either sign up as an individual or as a group, and I registered as an individual and these are the categories. Obviously I opted for 10km-Women (I’m not crazy enough to opt for a longer distance than that. Still not a single ounce of idea if I’ll even make it through 10km in one piece)
I don’t understand why the further you choose to run, the more you have to pay, lol.
So you’d have to fill up basic info (as usual):
What I found really appealing is the fact that I can customize my name on the bib. Of course I went for “shanobyl”, hehehe (I’m the queen of all things novel and ultimate cheap thrills).
And for those of you who believe in lucky numbers (and also believe in giving back to charity), you can purchase a bib with a number you desire. This costs an additional $50 and as much as I’d like a 0009 on my bib, I’m not gonna spend that amount on it.
You can also choose if you’d like an e-certificate or a hardcopy one to be mailed to you (go green, save the earth friends).
To wrap up, the main details of the marathon are:
Date: 26/27 May 2012 (depends on the distance you’re running)
Time: 930pm onwards
Venue: Open field, beside Nicoll Highway MRT Station
I have about 1 and a half months to prepare for this, yikes!
