The crazy people at Running Guild decided to organise an ultra marathon. Not just any ultra marathon but a 100 milers. I can't imagine running 100 miles in hot humid Singapore. But apparently, a lot of people can and a few hundred people duly signed up for the various categories including 67 for the 100 miles, and the rest spilt between the 50 miles and the marathon distance.
The race was flagged off from MacRitchie Reservoir. Despite the darkness and the lack of transport facilities the participants started turning up from 5 am to run in this aptly named Craze Ulta.
These folks flew in from Philipines just to do this. As if there isn't any ultra there.
The Malaysian contingent was nearly 30 strong if I am not wrong. There were also many other nationalities including another big group from the Indonesia.
