The inaugural Action Asia 50k event in Singapore.
Another Salomon Sponsored Event.
Action Asia Event finally landed in Singapore and this is this the very first event they organised here. Bringing in Hong Kong Style Event experience (With Singapore weather), supported by Jeri (our Queen of Ultramarathon) and they are able to bring in big sponsors like MSIG and salomon to support his event.
The race site is also the first in Singapore and the race route although going through the same trail as other trail events, give a whole lot of different challenges especially the scorching hot weather.
They also bring in tailwind nutrition from gonerunning from Hong Kong to provide their nutrition drinks which is refreshing.
Chaos at the start as the elite from oversea did not turn into the green corridor and went straight to the road...happening in the dark when everyone still sleepy. Organizer miscalculated that the trail is just easy to be missed in early morning by the oversea elites
Plenty of freshly cut bananas and oranges and biscuits at waterpoints. Hong Kong Style of pumping water out of the water barrels.
After the event, there are free flow of lunch boxes (teriyaki chicken rice, vegetarian rice, lasi lemak) and fruits popsicles.
The biggest challenge for this run is the scorching hot weather.
Everyone has a great time torturing themselves.

As I mentioned in previous post, the removable foam pad doesn't look lasting. So when I happened to walk around in Daiso, I saw these foam mats!! So an idea came.....I brought the largest pad at the top shelf.
It was actually the same thickness but higher density
So The mat is larger than the foam pad..I can cut the shape out
Got it out but need more trimming to make it a bit smaller because it is more rigid.
Because is flat, so I decided to use a pen knife to cut out some grooves to improve ventilation and drianage of sweat. This also improve the flexibility of the padding
Will try it out and hopefully it works!!!

Retail Price Locally is SGD$219.
Found keypowersports.sg Having 20% off and so I ordered it for SGD$172.90.
Based on the sizing, this M/L is the right size for me.
Come with a removable soft foam pad which look like will not last many uses with heavy sweat and washes....so I got to find an alternative back foam.
