It was a horrible experience in collecting the race pack.
Arriving at noon at the Expo,
I was greeted by the long queue outside Hall 5, the collection hall.
I joined the queue at near the half of Hall 6.
Then more crowd came and the queue behind me got longer, very long.
Apparently, there's also a big crowd inside the hall waiting in different queues to collect the race pack.
So they are waiting for the crowd inside to clear before allowing the next batch of crowd to enter.
And so I queued outside for about 30min to 45min.
Luckily, one of the officials came out to call for those taking part in the 10km run.
That cuts my queuing up outside the hall, waiting to get in.
But entering the hall at the 10km lane was another 30min-45min of queuing up.
Actually, the queue inside the hall could be much faster if not for those office people who helped dunno how many people collect the race pack. They held up the service time at the counter and the adjacent counter had already served a few participants.
Finally, I got my race pack, bib and running shirt about about 2pm.
That's like 2 hr since I started queuing up.
After that checked out the sports expo next door.
I like the way they pack the bib, champion-chip and safety pins into 1 nice ziplock bag.
10km this sunday.
Target finish time: 2hr +
Go! Go! Go!
