New Balance Real Run 08

Running on the sand is always not a pleasant feeling to run on. You can feel the numerous of sands moving in your running shoes and the level of toughness is increase tremendously. But you will enjoy the feeling of conquering the toughness once you have complete the race.

Welcome to REAL RUN 08 where one will enjoy running on the trail, sand, taxiway and road. This year real run will once again held in the
Changi Exhibition Centre, which held the Singapore Air show, as the event was held in Sentosa for the Year 2006. There will be 2 different distances for the runners to choose which are 10 km and 15 km. I was puzzled that the 10 km race starting time is earlier than the 15 km race. Normally, the longer distance will start before the shorter distance. Maybe the organizers want the runners to enjoy the morning sunshine and heat (The Changi Exhibition Centre is located in the Eastern area of Singapore, which will be the sun rise direction). The only complains i had for the previous year Real run will be the heat and sunshine. It was very hot at the last few km.
