Great Eastern Run - Superb Organisation

By Saranniya

Many told that the today's race was organised very well and it would be good for other race organisers to follow this kind of model. 
I ran my own 21.1km in 2hr 15min. In the Great Eastern Half-Marathon today, Chen Ming Ming did 2hr 10min while Jasmine Tan did a personal best time of 2hr 11min. In the past, Jasmine had a personal best time of 35min for 5km. She trains at least twice per week with Coach Rameshon and it is predicted by him that she could do, over a period of time, a timing of sub-2hrs.

We had another 2 runners who ran in the half-marathon race. Helen Toh, a working mother, who has not been running for several years finally ran and did 2hr 31min 44sec for the half-marathon while Sumathy came in with a time of 2hr 28min. Both of them ran their half-marathon race for the first time. 

Mao Xin  mother, age 42, a veteran woman runner, who just took up running did a very good personal best time of 48min plus for the 10km. My mother did 1hr 23min for the 10km and I am proud of her performance. It is her personal best time

Anja Tan, another Flexifitness runner did a time of 1hr 01min for the 10km race.
