  1. Poor organisation! I ran in the last months in the most of the country’s in SEA! In the finish line very good food for all! This one was the most expensive and we got banana and water! You are doing it for 23 years! The runners deserve better!

  2. Poor organization – delayed start when heat is building up.

    Heard this was because some speech from politician was to be delivered ?

    Last time am participating in this.

  3. Great event in a stunning location. Wonderful staff and supporters along the route. For the naysayers, give it a rest and remember why you are there. I’ll be back
