The route map looks interesting! Not quite the full same on the 2nd lap to shake things up, and build up more support in the lower left area. Seems like a great idea!
Shame I signed up for the ICC Vertical race first, on the same day! But This has definitely got me more interested to join next year!

Don't get too excited. They will change the route again next year, as they do every year (intentionally or not !)

Re: Registraton for Macau Marathon starts on Aug 29

Macau is full already.
It seems demand is outpacing offer.
Need new ideas to accommodate all of us.
Maybe a race on the Macau-Hong Kong bridge (36km?) could help?

Especially disappointing after spending 10 hours trying to login to their site and getting nothing but error messages!

macau marathon registration problems

yes i was lucky took me only 45 minutes to log on and queue . if you have not registered as a member try to do so as it does help with the registration . I did write to teh organisers to comment about the log in problems but i am afraid they just replied and told me to use a different computer haha .

i do hope Hong Kong marathon goes smoother........

I also wrote to the organizer and asked for an entry based on my 2nd place finish last year and 3rd place finish in 2012. The reply came back, "the quota is full, thank you for your support."
Obviously they have little interest in having a competitive field beyond the paid athletes they fly in.

Re: Registraton for Macau Marathon starts on Aug 29

Great results! If you've come 2nd and 3rd in an international marathon don't worry about Macau, you should have no problem getting a priority entry into most big city marathons - what was your time? 2:12, 2:15?

Hahaha. I love the sarcasm. I'm 57 years old, so I was actually referring to the Senior's category. Maybe we're not important to race sponsors, but we enjoy competing against the best in our age groups just as much as the open category athletes. Perhaps if I changed my name to Yusef Ibrahim, I would have a better chance at getting an entry and some appearance money !
