Calling SC Singapore Marathon Runners: Nike Freebies are Out

Tuesday, 2 December 2008  |  Race Announcements

As mentioned, Nike will be giving out free Nike attire and shoes to Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon runners who were able to register with Coach Rio. 

Click here to confirm if you’re on the list.  

According to Coach Rio, you may have registered with him, but due to lack of available sizes for singlets and shoes, your name may not be included in the final list.  Shorts won’t be given out anymore too.

If you’re listed, as I am (woohoo!), you may pick up your items from Coach Rio at Ultra, 6 to 9am and 5 to 9pm, until Thursday.  See you in Singapore!

Running Shoe Pricing Matrix

Tuesday, 2 December 2008  |  Gear + Gadgets

‘Tis the season to shop for new running items, or perhaps jot them down on a list for loved ones to purchase.

If a new running shoe is at the top of your wish list, my good friend and running shoe adviser Hector prepared this pricing matrix for you to know exactly which shoe fits into your budget (hay, if only price were of no importance)…





Thanks Hector!
