Good run in Asia (General Comments)|
A Runner from Singapore (8/3/01)
I did the half marathon and I had a good time. The police were diligent in blocking out traffic and the folks distributing water at the water stations were encouraging. There were plenty of first aid stations and a school band and cheerleaders were 'performing' at the finishing line. Unfortunately, like many other runners, I took a long time locating my belongings after the run, as the bags were placed in an inconspicuous corner. I felt very welcome in the race from start to finish and might go back to KL for this race. To those used to running in crowds, please note that races in Singapore and Malaysia have much fewer participants. There is no 'crowd spirit'.
