Army Half Marathon 9 Sept 2012
The Army Half Marathon is this coming Sunday, have picked up the racepack from the race expo in Kallang last week, so as usual I will post the racepack review before the race.
Singapore Army Half Marathon this time will be running through Gardens by the Bay if I am not wrong, new scenic route to enjoy and forget about the pain of running hard.
Sometimes people forget about the pain by signing up for runs just for the goodie bag (No I am not kidding) Don’t ask me why.. maybe its cause they would like to show that they have ran alot of races with their race T.
I have even seen people who did not complete a marathons or even worst did not run at all, but they would stand at the finish line and then ask for the finisher T. (shame on you guys) What is it worth ? Bragging rights? I highly doubt it.
As usual the woven bag to carry all the items that is given in the race pack collection day, (sponsored by Salonpas)
Here comes the vouchers, coupons and flyer, bunch of discount coupons there one for the Soleus HR watch. Not too bad at least the Army Half Marathon had control over the flyers and vouchers unlike the NUS.
Here are the items that could come in handy from the sponsors
- After sports wipe (which I have a few from previous runs and have not even used em)
- High5 EnegeryGel. Tried this before as it doesn’t need water. Not to my liking
- Garnier Turbo light face wash (pretty handy to bring around)
- Salonpas relief patch (pretty good stuff)
- Shick Hydro5 , this is the most awesome thing in the race pack by far (who gives a full razor? +1)
- SIM University retractable pen
New Tshirt Design
They have retained the running man logo as for every year but this year they have incorporated the Gardens by the bay background on the Tshirt. Orange colored ?
The back of the Tshirt says “Distance is nothing if you are loving it” the T-shirt designed must have been eating one to many McDonald if you ask me , he even helped promote McDonald subconsciously.
My only gripe with this years Safra Army Half is the poster below, Let me know what you feel about that encouragement phrase they did up for this weekend?
