Marshals at 2XU Compression Half Marathon Run 2013
Why is Course Security Necessary?
MIKA Kume had a chance of topping her age group at the Aviva Ironman 70.3 Singapore triathlon yesterday, but her dream was punctured by what appears to be a deliberate act of sabotage: Someone had strewn thumb tacks along the bike route of the race.
At least four bikes were nailed, The Straits Times understands. Elvia Suryadi, 32, had to wheel her bike for 80 minutes barefoot, as she did not have a spare tyre with her.
'I wanted to cry each step of the way,' said the lecturer, who had to take off her cycling shoes to walk from the Singapore Flyer to East Coast Park.

“At all times, the integrity and safety of race course must not be forsaken, we must deter and prevent any possible threats from harming or endangering our participants' lives and the community at large.” says Course Security SG.
Marina Boulevard, Sunday, June 8, 2008 – George Lawson (1:36:09) and Monica Torres (1:51:51) were the fastest duathletes at the City Duathlon but the post-race conversations were centred on the confusion arising from the shortened bike leg.
Riders were expecting to cover five loops of 8km each but were left scratching their heads when their speedometers indicated only 20km at the end of their bike leg. It seems a failure in marshalling and route set-up led to the mistake.

“For any race events with a cycling leg, a lead escort is COMPULSORY to lead the contingent of cyclists. In any event of marshalling problem to arise, at least the cyclists are rest assured that they are on the right course, this is will prevent them from riding astray and also to ensure that the elites will have a smooth and uninterrupted race.” says Course Security SG.
