So yesterday, I travelled to the far east of Singapore (practically the other end of the world for me) to collect the Sundown Marathon 2012 race pack. It was held at the Singapore Expo, in conjunction of the Run Bike Swim Expo.
No coverage on the expo itself because my main aim was to get there, collect the race packs and leave (mainly because while I occasionally run, I don’t swim and certainly do NOT cycle).
So here are the contents of the race pack!
Let’s go through them part by part. Starting with the race bib:
I especially like my bib because as you can see, I chose “shanobyl” as the name to be displayed. I’m such a sucker for cheap thrills, but if you don’t make things special for yourself, nobody will.
Then there’s of course the race top.
See the light bulb sticker on the top? It says it’s reflective. No idea what this means. Anyone?
Then there are of course product samples, mainly from Loreal and Garnier. Just one problem, these samples are for MEN. Not sure if this was a human error, or did they give all participants – male and female – the same samples.
The Electrotabs thing in the silver packet is a dissolvable tablet for energy. You know, like those vitamins you dissolve in water.
There are also sports vouchers. I’ll probably give this away to someone who needs them, because I normally get my stuff from Nike/Adidas.
And finally brochures and pamphlets for very fit people. I mean, with the exception of the Lasik flyer, the rest of the pamphlets will only be relevant to people who are very fit and workout often.
I just wish they had a towel in the race pack though, because that would be so useful during the run. But I’m just saying, because I’ll probably bring along the pink one from the Nike Run race pack.
So now I have exactly two weeks to prep for the run. No idea how I’m gonna get through the run, but I’m sure I’ll survive.
See you at the run!
