Here in Singapore, we’ve had a long dry season that has been superb for mountain biking, but that has come to an end. The South East Monsoon looks like it has arrived early, and katabatic winds rolling off the Sumatras have cause early morning thunderstorms also known as the ‘bohorok’. The bike trails have been wet and muddy, and for the past couple of weeks, I’ve found myself reaching more and more for my trail running shoes and less and less for my mountain bike.
This Saturday, 28th March 2009, together with Jasmine Wong and Leow Kah Shin, a couple of ultra-running friends who have also completed Racing The Planet’s 4 Deserts events, and in conjunction with the Running Lab, I’ll be leading a technical trail run along Upper Pierce Reservoir starting at 0830 from Boulder City off Chestnut Avenue, Singapore. It’s a 6.5k trail run, but technical, so it will probably feel more like 10k. There’s no need to register, simply show up, introduce yourself and join us.
