RunNus 2 Sept 2012 (Update)
RunNus post update:
Hey Hey hey everybody, run is over and I could say it was a very hot and humid day. Saw the boys at the event and it was pretty fun with lots of people up in this early Sunday.
The organizer of RunNus made a very very big boo boo, I was at the finish line when the
(SUPPOSED WINNER) first wave 10k running came in *He was not suppose to run to the start line*
He was shouting at the poor volunteer saying WHERE is the finish line? poor girl told him that it was the other corner. He kept shouting there should be proper marker etc etc but I sure understood his feelings cause with a time of 44 or 48mins and you are not placed in the top 10? tsk tsk tsk
So what really happened?
1) If I am not wrong, he was not wearing his bib on the front, so the volunteers did not see him coming.
2) Volunteers could have been more attentive (but hey this is not a professional organization, they are just students)
3) Should have jut put up proper signage (so no need volunteers to direct)
All finishers was given a Finisher T. (First time they are doing so) check it out
Well see you guys at the next run. It was a short and enjoyable run. Have a great weekend
RunNUS is an annual running event organised by the NUS Student Sports’ Club. For the third year, all participants’ fees go to the Annual Giving bursaries to help NUS students in financial need. Last year, more than 1,800 runners participated in the Run, helping to raise more than $35,000 for students in need.
Are you one runner that look forward to collecting the race goodie bags and wondering what they would give? I believe some steep race registration goodie bags provided are not filled with very high quality items as well. Do you feel cheated ?
Lets take a look at what goodies was given for a $26 race.
Skechers sponsored the woven recycle bag carrier that was given out to all participants.. now lets see what else is inside…
Front and Back look of the race singlet provided , the color of the T-shirt kinda turn me off, its like kinda like turquoises and baby blue, the message in the front has this foot print with a man running and I think the background is erm… NUS Campus ? Tag line for this year is ” Run for a cause” Unleash your potential, imprinted on the back is “Discover your Limits”
I wonder what kinda potential people are going to unleash on that day (to be on the safe side I better bring some body armour)
That is not all of the goods that was in the bag, here comes the fun part.
The many many many many coupons, vouchers, promotions, and flyers that was in the bag as well, Oh did I mention that they put in many many many many coupons, vouchers, promotions and flyers?? The whole bag was littered with them papers, Please help save the environment guys.
Some where under those voucher is my bib, I swear to you ..
