Nike City 10K SG vs KL Experience makoy
MTV VJ Utt, lol
Last October 24 me and the rest of 16,000 Singapore peeps run 10 kilometers from Raffles Avenue to The Float @ Marina Bay. I arrived the venue 10 minutes before the start of the race. It's just nice to see a lot of runners wearing the same running shirt. At the baggage counter, I left my bag and they were very organized. They gave a baggage number that I placed on my shoes.

Anyway the venue is at The Float @ Marina Bay. The field held some stations that I hoped was a goodie bag section. After visiting the portalet, we went straight to the starting point. Raffles Avenue was flooded with neon green shirts. Amazing! While waiting for the signal, I can hear the voice of MTV VJ Utt and the other annoying girl host who I don't know.

The first wave started at exactly 7:45 and I was so pumped up to run. During the leg of the race, I was able to pass the following roads: Nicoll Highway, Republic Boulevard, Sims Way, Geylang Road, Kallang Road, Crawford Street and Marina Promenade. There were 4 music stations including R&B and Pop where bands performed live.

I made the finish line with an approximate time of 01:24:00. At the finish line, the neon green peeps were on queue for the complimentary bottled water, 100 Plus drink and the finisher souvenir. After getting those goodies, I went to get my bag and took some photos at the Nike City 10K backdrop.

It was a great run thanks to the cooperation of the weather. Hoping to join again next year!
