    • Mmm yes, that may give a hint or two of it being a closed event, because I am quite puzzled how they are able to host such a big event with in Sentosa now with most of the area under major construction now.

      Having it at Changi again will seem to be the most logical choice now.

  1. For some reason, I’m having a problem registering for this run! I can’t seem to get my confirmation slip even after it stated that my payment was successful, and yet I cannot complete the eighth step of my registration process online.

    • Hey Hazel, girls and guys will start off together. I do not recall stand chart having a gender segregation either though.

      Runners are all flagged off by categories, not based on their gender. The trail part is largely an open field, based on the photos on their website and what I recall from last year’s race.
