  4. Thanks for the those who provided feedback for our survey. As we are students, we are still learning on how to conduct a proper feedback survey. We have revised said survey based on the given feedback and apologise for the "clickbait" in the prior post. We hope that you guys would continue helping us in gathering insights and more feedback from this year's Virtual Run. Revised survey: https://forms.gle/VrqRJm7G6T9AfTam7

  5. I have a few comments about the surveys. #1 I do not see why it is necessary to ask for the name of the respondent. It should be optional. #2 When you are crafting a survey, it is better to ask for a scaled response to your questions (usually 1 -5 or 1 - 6). Crafting your surveys like an examination is a definite put-off. No one want to answer so many open-ended questions in a survey. It is cumbersome and it actually makes digesting the results a nightmare. If you are asking so many open-ended questions, how are you even going to quantify the results? #3 I did not join but would

  6. I went into the system and found that slots that were unavailable previously can be booked now. Which means they managed to open up each slot to take in more people now. Good job for rectifying the issue. OCBC got budget...they see organizing the event as a big branding event to market to cyclists, many of which are middle to upper class professionals that are their target audience. That said, SCSM entitlements also need to pay delivery fees if you opt for delivery to home... ST RUN... organized by SPH which is in a struggle to keep the printed media relevant and profitable...nee

  8. Nope, we're the same Simon! It's not that we're lazy to walk... we just want to rest the legs for the time we spend running!

  9. Hahaha! It’s just that I remembered many years ago, my friends and I were arguing whose turn it was to go to the nearby convenience store to buy drinks & snacks for everybody. The conversation went something like this: Runner 1: “You guys do it.” Runner 2: “I’m tired...” Me: “The sun is up. It’s so hot already! I don’t want to move anymore... ” Runner 4: *Wearily stares into the distance with a blank look* Runner1: “What’s with you guys? We all just ran 25kms without a single complaint. Why are you all so lazy now to just walk a few more blocks to the 7-11?!?!

  10. That's GREAT to hear that uncle is participating in so many other events, except for this one. And if that is the case, then it may be better that we let those runners who are or may be participating in this event to chitchat here.

  12. uncle had been in ultramarathon/IM activities....but limit only to with cut-off time, based more on Marathon run time (speed)...and prefer not on Ultramarathon (endurance)... supplementary Amino Acids...although they are essentials for healthy reason...not many of us ultra-distance athletes are used to consumption...perhaps uncle is very "sensitive" to all things not naturally made from fresh produces and meat... @RaijinFJ, you have raised a valid concern about stress on cardiovascular health from the prolonged stresses involved... let un

  15. As kohpapa has pointed out, it is costly to do a guided run like this with the need to create a separate app for it. Which is why this run is more expensive than the other virtual runs. And this will not be the new normal because not everyone is OK with the price tag, or want to download 10 different apps for 10 different virtual runs. People rather just run simple.

  19. Received an email that asks participants to select how they want to receive their entitlements: Either delivery at $12, or self-collection at SPH. https://www.gevme.com/64979964/registration/order/form Even though there are 6 weekends or 18 days to choose for your collection, 95% of the slots are already taken and this is only less than 12 hours after they send out the email. So I reckon many people still haven't choose their collection timing, because they haven't read the email, and will not be able to do so by tomorrow. They had also not announced this on their website or facebook
