Re: Macau International Marathon

5am start! That is too early for me.

I dont remember it being this early in previous years.

Re: Macau International Marathon

Far too early! Even worse, I have already booked the Westin far away taking advantage of a special discount some months ago. Need to arrange a cap from there at around 3:45am!!

Re: Macau International Marathon

early start good for me....last two years finish was quite warm ! and also can finish in time for breakfast in hotel :-)

Re: Macau International Marathon

So no need to stay in hotel, ferry to macau wharf, then straight to start. But need someone to pick up the bib though. I had that arranged a few yrs ago.

Re: Macau International Marathon

Keith,
Westin ! my experience in 2010, morning taxi is extreme tight, sudden of 40-50 runners gather to call taxi in 4-5am, when 30 minutes before gun time, there were still 20-30 runners left with no traffic or waiting taxi and, we were desperately chasing the hotel manager to send us to the stadium by hotel bus, he said but no driver... I and wife with total 15 fellows just squeezed into a 7 seats van arranged from the sponsor company Galaxy via one of our fellow runner, luckly we can managed to get start from the end of the queue in 1 minute before gun time, but I dont know what happened to those 10'ish runners left behind.

Re: Macau International Marathon

Hi Eric

Thanks for the information. That's quite bad, but understandable!

Re: Macau International Marathon

Any idea of the route for full marathon this year. Searching through the event website but still got no clue on the route.

Re: Macau International Marathon

Hi Alex, I think the route should be same as last year, 2 times the route for half marathon.

Re: Westin Macau

I was just informed that this year Westin Macau will offer a complimentary one way transfer to the race in the morning.

Re: Macau International Marathon

Hi - I sadly missed the registration deadline... Would anyone like to part with their entry bib for the mini-marathon? I know entry bibs are not officially transferrable, but I would be happy to reimburse you :) Many thanks!!!

Re: Macau International Marathon

Hello - I found that the online registration is till 23 Nov 2012 except if it's full.

Cheers!

Re: Macau International Marathon

Thanks, mariang. Yes, am aware, it's unfortunately full... would love to get someone's bib if they are no longer participating...

Re: Macau International Marathon

I checked the ferries from Hong kong and it seems the only turbojet available is at 2:30! From Central. Then 4AM will probably be late, if you include the customs+taxi. Am I right? Any other ways to get to Macau at 5AM?
