Here we go, the details of the 2007 NIE director’s relay. The 2006 race was one of the toughest races I’ve ran (personally I find more taxing than my marathon) having to run 2.4km relays from 9pm to 9am the next day with hardly 5-10mins of rest time in between. Things are abit different this year, 4.5km from 6pm to 11pm, comparatively bit too easy compared to last year.

Heres the official message I’ve got from the organisers:

On behalf of the organising committee, thank you (& your team) for the interest and support of our event in 2006, which benefited the Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF).

We will be organizing the 2nd edition of this event on Friday, 3rd Aug 2007, from 6 pm. The theme of this event is A Special Run for Special People, and the beneficiary is the MINDS Jurong Gardens School. The format for the main relay will now be a 6-runner x 4.5 km loop each. It should end by around 11 pm.

Please visit our website for the registration form & more details of the event.

For your info, there is a fun walk/jog event preceding the main relay and this is mainly targeted at staff and students of NTU and NIE. To enhance the experience for the runners, time-keeping for the relay event will be by the Triathlon Assoc of S’pore (TAS), one of our event supporters, and Championchip timing system.

Thanking you in advance for your support & participation.

Best regards
Raymond Loh
