All set for my fifth Sundown! Started in 2013 in the 10km category. Competed in the 10km category each year except in 2015 (21.1km Half Marathon). Excited!

Preparation

I had a satisfying result in my land time trials for FDS. Clocking in my LTT “best run ever” at 13 mins 42 seconds (2.8 kilometers). I also raced in a 5km charity run last weekend. I’m psyched to run during our weekly land trainings. Running 10 minutes at high speed on a treadmill is standard when I visit the gym.

Credits

I was planning to cut back on “paid” races this year to focus on weightlifting and paddling. But our company sponsored slots this year. Could not resist that! I am running the OSIM Sundown Marathon 10km thanks to my company’s initiatives in health.

Route

The race route is different this year. Almost in reverse from the previous years. The first part of the race is towards Gardens by the Bay, before turning back towards the F1 Race Pit (where the race starts and concludes), before going up along the Kallang Riverside, and then back down again to the F1 Pit.
