The Tahura Trail running is held at the Forest Park IR H Juanda in the Dago area in Bandung Indonesia. Talking about fresh air in Indonesia for a change, the city is 150km ( approx) from Jakarta. But it is not as crowded. However, on the weekends, many of the residents in Jakarta likes to go there for a short weekend, making the city very busy on weekends and public holidays. […]
Having already done this marathon last year, this is just a brief update for this year’s edition. Basically, the route has been improved to a relaxing and easier route. There were less turnings and funny turns. The water points were well replenished and there are also banana stations and sponge stations around. In terms of slopes, there were not many steep ones and all were easy. The race starts at 4 am as usual, which means it is still pretty dark at at the race start, most of the routes are brightly lit and visibility is not a problem. Just make sure if you need to go into some dark corners for toilet, be very careful and alert of the drains as some are not covered.
For runners, the feet and the leg are under constant pressure and “torture”. Especially when many of the runners fail to see the importance of proper warm up and cool down procedures. The feet is the first point of contact for walking and running. Having skin, nail and joint problems with the feet is also[…]
Taking place on 18th December 2016 at the Helipad in Tai Po(2016 MIZUNO香港半馬拉松錦標賽)
The race is very enjoyable as the day was well and sunny. The best part is, the location is a nice natural attraction with views of the mountain and the reservoir. Very tranquil and nice. This is hard to come by in the down town Hong Kong.
The Standard Chartered Marathon is always something that all Singaporeans look forward to. From seasoned runners to fun walkers, the participation rate is always very high. In 2016, the organising has been changed to Spectrum World Wide, a leading event management and experiential marketing company operating throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Despite some previous bad reputation on this events company. Sport SG has decided to give the company the organising opportunity.
When going overseas for races, I tend to chose those races which are in South East Asian climate. I am really afraid of the cold. And to me to run in any temperature lower than 14 degrees Celsius is actually too tortuous. But many runners have reflected that running in colder temperature actually improves their timing. This is the reason when I chose some of the oversea races, I tend to go to those which have hot springs!

The marathon was on 23 October 2016 at the MONAS. This was a monument in the down town Jakarta. I had never been to Jakarta, first time seeing the monument was really impressive. The race itself brings you to all the important sights in the city which can be difficult to go due to the bad traffic. The route to say is not that bad as it was mainly flat. However, this time the challenge is the rain. There was a heavy down pour and all of us were drenched running in the heavy rain.
