  3. Yah, same here, will incur some cost. But most importantly, I want to keep my slot even though it was my personal decision not to go ahead with the race, therefore still quite happy with the latest development.

  8. https://www.marathon.tokyo/en/news/detail/news_001576.html Official announcement just came, its canceled but all runners can defer their entry to next year, entry fees not refundable though. Woohoo! It's good news for me as I've already decided last week that I wont be making the trip this year.
  9. The most high profile cancellation yet, if true. There's no official news from the official site yet but a lot of new site has already reported that the Tokyo Marathon for the General public has been cancelled because of COVID-19.

  11. Dear parents, Would you still send your kids to continue learning swimming in view of the recent corona-virus outbreak?
  12. Almost 2 months ago before the end of 2019, uncle had an Ultra! Run: Tampines JC (Tampine PC) >>> Loyang PCN >>> Changi Village >>>Changi Beach Park >>> Changi Coast Road >>>Tenah Merah Coast Road>>>ECP>>>Marina Barrage Remembrance: Sundown Ultramarathon Routes The (Old) Changi Coast Road used to be an eventful route for many races - past editions of Sundown Marathon which then started from Changi Exhibition Centre. Also, most of the Bike and Run of Triathlons were held here. 2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition had its Road/Taxiway Run, meaning at the Start Point (Taxiway already). Of course, the Taxiway did not imply Runway 1 or Runway 2 (Changi Terminal 1, 2 and 3) Old Changi Coast Road, Aviation Park Road and Changi Exhibition Centre remembered. Fast forward... today, there is a New Tenah Merah Coast Beach..for windsurfing and kitesurfing....many had entered illegally to "State Land - You will be Arrested for Trespassing" warning boards, vehicles entered to the coastal beaches. Yes, if ever there is such a multi-terrain-ed route again: Run Trail (plenty of coastal routes with "State Land" boards), Run Sand (plenty), Run Road (Tenah Merah Coast Road - 14KM + stretch with no amenities), Run Taxiway 3 (at Future Terminal 5). Meanwhile, uncle is happy "surfing" kite @ Aloha Tenah Merah Coast Beach.
  13. The 2011 edition was so good and different! I wonder if they will ever plan such route again.
  14. Yesterday
  15. 2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition. For the first time – 21 km race route. First multi-terrain half-marathon locally answer - taxiway, road, sand and trail note: taxiway - a route along which an aircraft can taxi when moving to or from a runway
  16. COVID-19 threat could erode with time just as with H1N1, say experts (info - https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/covid-19-threat-could-erode-with-time-just-as-with-h1n1-say-12438600) Gurmit Singh Phua Chu Kang Get Serious on COVID 19
  17. Four terrains? Hmmmm...... Was it? 1. Road, trail, sand, footpath; or 2. Road, trail, sand, runway
  18. Taiwan confirms first COVID-19 death (info - https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/coronavirus-covid19-taiwan-first-death-12439978)
  19. weak signals in the forest are due to communication in the "military zone" as mentioned on the presence of military camps along Rifle Range Road. As for these organizers measuring accurately the distance, you can always depend on them to do a good job
  20. A meaningful event which allows the participant to raise fund at the same time! For those who do not mind the short distance, can actually do the 5 km run holding a 5 kg relief pack (e.g. rice). Something different.
  21. Date: 6 September 2020 (Sun) Venue: Marina Barrage Distance: 10 KM, 5 KM & 1 KM (kIDS DASH) Website: https://groundzerorun.com/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/groundzerorun/
  22. Uncle, actually how do these organizers measure accurately on the distance? There are many times my runkeeper 'hang', perhaps due to the weak signals in the forest.
  23. great info..about 15km so we have a 15KM route because Chestnut Ave is assessible to Logistics and Transportation. Zhenghua Park will be a more appropriate U-Turn and checkpoint. Hindede Road >>> Daisy Farm Nature Reserve >> > Zhenghua Park (U-Turn)>>>Dairy Farm Nature Reserve>>>MacRitchie via Rifle Range Road via MacRitchie Link via SIME Track>>>Windsor Nature Park>>>Venus Loop (U-Turn)>>>Hindede Road (25KM/50KM) 15KM shall be Dairy Farm Nature Park U-turn instead of Zhenghua Park (U-turn) for those 25KM/50KM 50km - Add MR Route (anti-clockwise loop) instead of straight to the Ranger Stn to Windsor Nature Park after SIME Track (only for doing 25km). Ranger Stn is Logistics and Deployment area for the MacRitchie/Singapore Island Country Club Side. The other will be the MR Amenities Area and Carpark at Lornie Road. Looks like we have covered all possible hydration/nutrition checkpoints - A. Hindede Road, B. Dairy Farm Welcome C. Zhenghua Park (Chestnut Ave), D. Ranger Station, E. Windsor Nature Park (Entrance) which actually Venus Car Park, F. MR Amentities and Carpark (for those that will do 50KM). Wah, like that, we actually have plotted SGRunners' version of Trans Singapore 15KM/25KM/50KM. Now, we just need to run and verify 15KM, 30KM and 50KM. Add chong (ascend) Bukit Timah Hill if you still have enough endurance after 15KM/25KM/50KM.
  24. Yesterday i tried the dairy farm to macritchie via rifle range road. Distance is 10 km according to my runkeeper. To add to 15 km, perhaps got to turn to zhenhua park before going to the water pipes area? Not too sure. It will be interesting to see what routes they will offer
  25. Last week
  26. Technically, agreeing "a single continuous run" is refreshing. MacRitchie Reservior route qualified to have "a single continuous run" because No Bikes Are Allowed. Other trail routes are shared with "bikers, hikers and walkers". Uncle would see that, until officially annoucement for such "a single continuous run", will there be no "bikers, hikers and walkers" congesting the route? Another challenge is the support by volunteers to manage the course to ensure "a single continuous route" of 15KM, 25KM or 50KM. Trial Run course is not like Road Run course. Logistics and Manpower deployment is not merely by mobile transportation. Even if transport is available, volunteers and support staff need to commute on their own like walking to locations which are really remotely from known tracks. Communication within the Trail Course is challenging in tropical forested Nature Reserve (Central Catchment Area). In some areas, communication signal is weaker simply nearby there are military camps especially along Rifle Range Road. Of course, there is still a possibility of the new Corridor Green extends beyond the Daisy Farm Nature Reserve. The Bukit Panjang side of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve stretching all the way to Mandai and Seletar Reservoir. From Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (includes Daisy Farm Nature Park)... linking Bukit Panjang Nature Park... Zhenghua Park Connector Actually this is part of the Waterpipe route (MacRitchie Reservoir >>>Bukit Timah>>>Bukit Panjang>>>Mandai>>>Woodlands) This will definitely meet the "continuous" run of another 15km and more. Wah, like that, then uncle shall have to reconsider Next week (4th): full loop Hindede Road >>> Daisy Farm Nature Reserve >> > Bukit Panjang>>>Mandai>>>U Turn>>>Mandai>>>Bukit Panjang>>>Daisy Farm Nature Reserve>>>Rifle Range Road >> Rifle Range Link (SIME Track) MacRitchie Reservior >>> Ranger Station >>> Windsor Nature Reserve >>> Venus Loop >>> U Turn >>>Hindede Road next week to get a feel of the "continuous" Trans Singapore Ultra! Trail Run which includes a Bukit Hill ascent (chong hill)..
  27. I like their statement that this will be a single continuous run, involving a non-multi loop format. Will be more 'refreshing' for the runners with no repeated route
