Race Pack Collection at Novena: Velocity Mall

As usual the race pack collection is held one week before the race, and as usual I will give my low down on the goodies given to participants. After my usual weekend swim I headed down to Novena at about 2pm hoping that there wont be any crowd and true enough there wasn’t any.

The North Face

If you notice the registration staff is wearing the ultra bright neon green race t. I was asking the guy in the pic, lets swap T when he is done cause I wanted the neon green cause I do run a fair bit in the night and it would be very helpful for me. (the color reminds me of Saucony ViziPro)

The North Face

This was the first time, the race map was printed full page on the race booklet, if you can see the person holding it. 100k, 50k, 25k and the 15k all clearly indicated in it. Not sure how accurate it would be.

So whats in the Bag you ask ?

  1. Menshealth Magazine
  2. Suunto brochures
  3. Active discount vouchers
  4. SFI Warehouse brochure
  5. TNF100 race directory
  6. TNF100 race course Map

The North Face

Useful stuff

  1. Gu Chomps
  2. Active muscle rub
  3. Jacob “Original” biscuit
  4. Viartril-S 500 capsules
  5. 2 Toms Blister prevention
  6. SingGourmet “Ready Made Rendang Sauce” (not what I expect in a TNF100 race pack)

The North Face

The only highlight of the race pack and saviour was the Running T and Race Bib, which I deem is pretty much decent.
