Army Half Marathon 08 Race pack

Went to East Coast park for a Long Slow Distance (LSD) 18 kilometers run with the Standard Chartered Marathon Pacers. It was a good run as i wasn't feeling any more sharp pain in my knee, but my fitness was slightly poor as i was struggled to keep my pace constant during the last few kilometers. Normally i would run at a constant pace throughout a run. Will be hoping to do well in the coming AHM 08 and finish the race without any injuries. Collected the Army Half Marathon race pack yesterday. This time round, the organizers provided all the runners with a runner's guide book. The guide book also provides the latest route map labeled all the water stations. Here are some of the information from the guide book:



The SAFRA Singapore Bay Run and Army Half Marathon (SSBR & AHM) is into its 17th year. To be held on Sunday, 24 August 2008, this year's run promises participants a great experience as they speed across the iconic Benjamin Sheares Bridge, and run pass various local landmarks.

Grown more popular over time, the SSBR & AHM attracted as many as 70,000 participants, making it the biggest mass running event on the local sports calendar.

This year, runners can look forward to an enhanced running experience. They will be treated to a scenic route starting at Esplanade Drive and will finish their race at the Padang. For the first time, runners of the 21 km route will be the first to run across the Marina Barrage, which is one of the latest development at the Marina Bay area. This development is also significant as it marks the first competitive run across a barrage in Asia.

There will be performances en-route to cheer on runners. The performances are separated into two themes - (i) Ethnic & Cultural and (ii) Young, Vibrant and Energetic. These performances include bands, percussion groups and cultural performances, designed to enthuse the participants further.
