  1. a look at how USA Run Races - Recommended Guidelines for Small to Large Running Events...
  2. Reflection on SCSM Virtual Club platform, simply allow sync-ing of all the major trackers seamlessly... otherwise, if not..then what uncle did for past weeks...with Runkeeper...and latest Adidas Running..linked to Sport Heroes Technology (Ironman).... uncle's digital sports experiences are updated at dashboard of SCSM platform >>>>> https://app.sgmarathonvc.com/en/dashboard hours ago, trying out with adidas running runtastic... works fine... uncle is happy...register FREE, gets REWARDED with earned BADGES, in Both VR RACE and CHALLENGES...come in 1-session only, multiple-sessions with option of Distance-only or Time-only like this one register (Time-only) .....uncle gonna to do this one next week (Week 6)... 3-consecutive-day with 30-min run challenge...Streaker... and as uncle as previously said, "Challenge can be repeated max of 3 times"... Streaker - back-to-back runs 90mins...to uncle this is like 5KM-5KM-5KM = 1/3 marathon distance challenge... SCSM 2020 Virtual Club is indeed...a Training Based Platform gearing up for VR Race or Real Run...with your favourite running/cycling/rowing/swimming/treadmill...apps yes, uncle can now really be "verified"...20+20+18KM or 58KM/week...is indeed acheivable...from SCSM Platform...without paying... for many reasons, uncle has no need for ST Virtual Run for 175KM...it can be done and "verified" with SCSM Platform in the next 2 weeks if uncle faithfully looking forward to Weekly (6-15) VR Race/Challenge Sessions... are you ready for 2020 SCSM (Grand Finale)? uncle thinks, you must get used to the format to know what is the Grand Finale Race or Challenge...because if this is a World Athletics event...Gold Label Road Race...certainly, it is worth the challenge to participate...right? just leave a motivating thought for all...“It’s definitely been a change in lifestyle and a change of mindset (during Covid-19 pandemic). And to keep yourself not only healthy in body but also healthy in mind, you need to get outside.” lastly, on the Alternative VR... walk, run, cycle...33KM...and being a cyclist on training....better for cycling...of course, uncle does both...so shall skip, since, someone can simply drive 5 loops...wait 8 hours...and register/verify as "walk" also can...pacing can be "averaged" out over time.... yes, Virtual Race is fun, Virtual Race is Healthy for most, especially newbies...but, if it can be "manipulated" just for "casual competitive" reason make it "qualifier" in the Leaderboard....tsk tsk tsk...how then to prevent "unethical" tactics of really do the running? even with "designated" routes...are you sure? of course, there in never DNF element in Virtual Race, and the only judgement of your performance is how you decide to want in your submission of set of "results" via GPA log... food for thoughts...Virtual Race...register to buy merchandise of what you want to achieve...with no DNF consideration (because you can attempt again - like SCSM virtial challenge)...unlike in REAL RUN race...official timing plus Race Marshall's Decision determine your 1-time session only... choose your next VR Race with better conviction and determination...not another merchandise show piece like 1000 miles to Nowhere, complete in 3 months...if uncle can fly...complete the VR race also can..zzzZZZ...Sleep Can Wait...
  3. SCSM Virtual Club Week 5 schedule: commit to these till 2 Oct: with the most challenging of all... Level Up Challenge 1: Streaker - What’s your longest running streak? For this challenge, we dare you to clock in 30 min of running every day for the 3 days in a row... should be great to achieve marathon distance... Note: VR Run (Weekend) is 1-time session, Challenge (Weekday) has 3 Attempts (win prizes)...meaning you can triple your Challenges (Activities could be in Time-based or Distance-based)... uncle aslo gearing up for this VR Challenge...1 session only familiarising the routes to be captured by GPA log in another Virtual Race.. with this app at Mount Faber...and complete challenge 10km (feeling shiok when "chong to finishing point") and 8 km ("run preferred route")...then ready for 33KM 1-time session when ready.... so far...runkeeper apps is working fine... What is SCSM+... articles of interests... Running in the new normal... some updates on Virtual Race (local)... 2020 ST Virtual Run SOLD OUT especially 175KM...tsk tsk tsk...everyone now becomes Ultra VR Runner, unbelievable....never say you cannot cycle "virtually" to complete 175km...lol VR hype...aiya let uncle share with you this one...Run/Cycle/Both Info from the link - https://connect.justrunlah.com/virtual-challenge/skechers-virtual-challenge/ look at the recommendations for your attempt say for 150KM so for those who say...aiya sign up for 18KM is chicken feed, sure 175KM is so easy lah...it is just like...every week run a 18KM race for 10 weeks...who say cannot? why SOLD OUT so easily especially for 175KM... for $5 or even $10 more...get Finisher Medal for 175KM to howlian, who would miss the opportunity "show-off" 175KM finisher medal or tee..with e-Certificate... Of course, uncle will never signup for this exclusive chance to howlian because uncle tell you how... secret revealed...App-only...GPS-only...can be cheated one..you can walk/run/cycle/car/train (except plane)...who says they will not be "cheaters" in the VR thingy... aiya, how not to cheat in VR... consistency in Pace Activity, and not Distance-based or Time-based...Pace Activity is consistent...3/4/5/6/7/8 pace...whether run/cycle/swim...locked this pace every 1 km..can also be in 10mins if you are seow on...fitness and pro-type... because it is virtual for all, no evidence to say...bike 175KM and state that you run 175KM... gives you a chance how to cheat... say 1 time-off uncle "run" 175KM.....within 24-hour...uncle takes several trips around Singapore...by train, by bike, by car... practically...uncle simply...zZZZZ at checkpoint...A,B,C,D..Z....apps will record and average out your pace within 175KM...Run...actaully take pic uncle take "gel", take "banana", take "lunch" takeaway...take "dinner" takeaway...pretend uncle nearly fainted...with hollywood/bollywood props using photoshop super imposed.. upload 1 time-off...also can pass off as the Finish end product VR... ok, see you next week when SCSM 2020 Week 6/7 till Oct 2..as uncle do the REAL Run VR...of course, uncle also can cheat one...but, actually, cheat who,only cheat yourself only lah...Real Fitness is only from Real Run... Run Safe, Run with Social Distancing...Stay Strong, Stay Healthy...VR is Fun, so just take part (no cheating ok!)
  4. come to an end of SCSM 2020 VR4 Week... Week 5 SCSM VR5 Races, what would it be?
  5. found this one..Sundown 2020/2021 Virtual Run link here - https://connect.justrunlah.com/virtual-challenge/sundown-run-2020/ more infor link here - https://www.justrunlah.com/virtual-run/sundown-run-2020/ basically...merchandising... not bad, a prelude of what Sundown Marathon 2021 [Virtual Race] shall gear up...from Oct 2020 - March 2021... this is a tie-up with JustRunLah! another Virtual Race interesting for uncle is this one... "designated route"@Mount Faber can be found at this link - https://connect.justrunlah.com/virtual-challenge/mount-faber-route-33km/ complete 1 session and be awarded this finisher medal... wah this one surely in Strava CR mode, a little more challenging means in FKT mode...uncle would need to reccee and plan...involve FKT routes (trail/high-elevation hill 327m run)...nutrition/hydration... btw, uncle were once active contributor in JustRunLah! forum for almost 3 years before it "folded" in 2019...lol
  6. uncle completed the VR4 - 15KM (weekend).. part of the (20KM Challenge and VR4 5KM + 15KM [20KM]).... and sharing with all a Virtual Race... link from here https://connect.justrunlah.com/virtual-challenge/run-for-your-heart-2020/ guess what...registration is FREE (not really, sponsor will conduct an e-consultation) so uncle signed up for 42km, with an email, replied with a Registration ID* * Upload your evidence either single or multiple submission of accumulated distance say 42km so uncle submitted..44km in Run Distance and of course this one...kiasu...a record of list of running activities at runkeeper... Sport Heroes technology is SCSM 2020 Virtual Club platform to syn with uncle's runkeeper app to capture run distance activities got a reply... now just wait till September 29 (closing date)... maybe expect an e-consultation (hope not from Mental Health Institution to verify if uncle is seow lan "crazy" or not)... expect the delivery of Finisher Medal shipped only from 2nd week of October... if interested, you still have till September 29 to participate for FREE registration with FREE Finisher Medal and e-Certificate... this is an example of a Strava CR format...a run has to be verified with a GPS data file and the route has to be significant enough to warrant inclusion..simply with Virtual Run. Search: Virtual Race...lobang for Free Registration, Free Finisher Medal and e-Certificate...or anything cheep and good, since uncle got already GPS data to support as evidence...for CR - Course Record... found 1: 18-level Vertical Run To Hell Virtual Run (no dateline)...challenge: why wait until you are RIP when you go anytime?
  7. Interesting article to share, for some of the trends which are happening in the Ultra Run Communities, and perhaps since SCSM is an Ultra Run meaning those who want to achieve a 1/2 Marathon (21KM) and Full Marathon (42KM)... Perhaps there are 2 camps of Ultra Runners that exist among us... Are you FKT or Strava CR Ultra Runner? First a background of FKT and Strava CR... So, the profile of uncle fitted as a FKT Ultra Runner, also FKT Trail Runner. Therefore discuss like a FKT and talk rubbish and how lian like one. Plan with Routes, Document on the Routes, achieving Mega Ultra Distances as One...posting like "complete 56km (20 + 20 + 16) in 8 days"...but record/achieve as grandmother stories...FKTers like uncle are primarily seeking the respect of their fellow endurance junkies. For the Strava CR Ultra Runner, SCSM 2020 Virtual Club platform is the Community, a run has to be verified with a GPS data file and the route has to be significant enough to warrant inclusion...share the achievement, with no need to proof (VR Races - Weekends), and unless you want to win prizes (Challenges - Weekday), then you must have proof, screen shots, post to social media...recognition from their peers, certainly more than from people who don’t really understand the sport, like wah, how do you do that, 5km/10km...1/2 Marathon...OMG Marathon (never dream that in your lifetime)... Virtual Race if become the norm during Covid-19, or eventually with become a trend setting after Covid-19...are you FKT or Strava CR Ultra or Both.. Surely, many had wanted to run in a Real Run...seeking the respect of their fellow endurance junkies as FKT...recognition from their peers (sgRunners)...verified by a Bib with a Tracker, cheers from audience, yes, supporters along the race route, motivating others or be motivated by others...on the race..or here in this forum...discussing on "wish I had not have injury", "not enough training"..... SCSM 2020 is in Strava CR mode, a little more challenging means in FKT mode...or a little of both... Nick Kao who made the statement....how do you describe him?
  8. actually, to run in any FM distance can be either as SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM VR 1 Session or SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM Challenges 2-3 Sessions depending on announcements... Surely, the Technology that would enable SCSM 2020 - "Runners can create avatars for the Virtual Route" will be delivered by TCS (if this will be announced that TCS shall also return in 2020)...congratulations, TCS had won the Silver Stevie in Innovation in Entertainment for SCSM 2019 Offical Race App... yes, reported that the audio (audience cheering) with augmented reality of visual "route" with iconic singapore landmarks... if there is a virtual marathon route, meaning there should be a "designated" route...meant for Elites? meant for VR "selective" Runners or for ALL participants...TBA Well, let's say for now...hydration and nutrition points are virtual, so go and figure out how then to DIY on supplementing your personal hydration and nutrition points on your "preferred routes"...cupless or personal bottles...as long as you don't anyhow dispose any place...otherwise, @Lady Ice will virtually appear as an avatar and "gentle reminder" to Keep the Race Course Clean & Safe... wonder if her avator also include a tyre... Had seen many runners in recent days using the "ECP preferred routes" as for their SCSM VRs on weekends or SCSM Challenges on weekday... very obviously, these are SCSM Virtual Club members, warming up and earning Points and Badges for their effort... of course, uncle collected Points and Badges at non-crowded "preferred routes"...just collected VR4-5KM, tomorrow will "gun" time for VR4-15KM.. so what's next week VR5-??KM...hope it should be 20KM or 10KM (because not awarded yet) and 17KM (reminds uncle of banana and gel station aka checkpoint)...looking exciting.... So, are you gearing up for SCSM Grand Finale VR or Challenges?...no need to pay for 5km, 10km and 21km to register, you can howlian (show-off) your digital badges as evidence, and we can see your results as a Virtual Club Community.... Earn Your Running Points with Credits and How Lian with Pride on your Badges...still waiting for what?
  9. Standard Chartered Bank..renewed title sponsorship with Singapore Marathon until 2023...
  10. SRY who has a stake on future selection for 2021 SEA GAMES...in his FB..commented... so ST Virtual Run finisher 175KM...can be called as Ultra National Athlete...lol eat more...who shall be the new SA Management Committee on 25 September...
  11. @beast, uncle has tried every reason to stick on SCSM 2020 Virtual Club platform with progressive Base Training Plan towards the "grand finale" edition... on the the hope, if there should be a designated route , say for only "invited" participants... at SCSM Virtual Club there is an accumulating "challenging distance" activities with leaderboard for Points... as well as VR Race categories for leading "VR Runners" SCSM VR Club format...Distance Activities (Challenge) in Points and Race (Pace) with Ranking... in uncle's opinion, the selection criteria may say "invited participants" depends on how much have your training activity and how ready are you for the "grand finale" via your pace and ranking...which is monitored and recording in the 15 Weeks (VR #01 - #15)...against all others in the Community who are sharing in the Virtual Club... regarding on the issue of apps...pretty good...tested and proven to be reliable..SCSM (Ironman) standard...no comments...uncle uses Runkeeper..GPS Only Locator...Distance option only... uncle has not registered with a fee, because it is FOC..so what's the medal quality, finisher tee consideration...only when the "grand finale" edition is announced...so you want VR #01-15 finisher bundles or finisher tees...it is your discretion..there is no obligation... importantly is...between now to the actual day of "Race" day...whether it is VR or/and Run for Elites, or/and Selected Participants Only...say up to 250, or 500, or 1,000, 5,000..."selectively" like in recent Japan Marathons "elite run clubs"...or "lottery" like in Taipei Marathon recently announcement... if decision to run on a "designated" route...announcement should be publicly in both social and print media...supported by MOH (safe distancing measures plan and approved), Sports Singapore (approval on mess event managment plan), Local Authority...with LTA/TP...agreed on Road Closures... event if the grand finale has a VR, would it be 1 session or Challenges which are 1-2 sessions..based on past weeks...why not Train for the SCSM 2020 format...and you would know, if given the format in 15 weeks...surely...no problem, it is achievable...1 session or up to 2 to 3 sessions accumulatively... something very unique about SCSM 2020 format... say if you should complete 21km in the future for 1 session...and if you should exceed 1km more beyond the 21km...SCSM 2020 had reminded to participants...please do not "not exceeded"...otherwise..." yes, don't overchong the distance.. see, even uncle dare not chong the 20km challenge...15.13 + 5.85...is 20.98 KM...so can practice for the VR which is stricter on "not exceeded" btw, the Challenge can be repeated..max is 3... attempts...so uncle can still chong 3 x 20KM for 60KM for this challenge as this one ends today...2359..lol overall response so far... Hope this helps! VR (weekends) and Challenge (weekdays)..SCSM 2020 format...this one is different from the other virtual runs... Note: if the 4-5-6 Dec is considered as SCSM 2020 weekend...then the VR (Grand Finale) should have maintained the same format of VR #01 - #15..and so everyone, are you ready for it? 5km/10km/21km/42km maybe Kids Dash (VR-Kids)...Run Any Place, Run Anytime, Run Global..Friday (5am) to Sunday (1159pm)? "Augmented" V-Reality... TBA...official SCSM 2020 only!
  12. So far, we know the pattern >>>>> Weekend VR #01-#05 : Single Race (Pace/Hard Run) Sessions of X KM and Y KM respectively, for example this week will be 5km and 15km Challenges Offered on WeekDays: Single or Multiple Sessions (Easy/Relax Run) gaining mileage in progression...weekly.. Say, uncle just completed last week (Friday 2359 hours)...20KM Challenge... Starting soon... VR5 of 5KM and 15KM...another 20KM contimuing next Weekdays...8KM "Preferred Route" and 10KM "Finishing Line"...another 18km... 20km + 20km + 18km...wah 58KM in 8 days...both Pace (Hard Run) and Relax (Fun)... another non-topic discussion...say if uncle were to be interested this one... free and easy...no restriction unlike in SCSM VR or Challenge Compliance 1 or 2 Session-only 175KM Category...if uncle can use SCSM Virtual Club (training plan)...with proper rest and recovery... about 3-4 weeks...Oct 19 to Nov 19 is achievable... so should uncle sign up ST VR 2020 for 175KM?... we are only at VR 5 or Week 5...still have 10 more to go...besides register to run FOC for SCSM 2020...can test and tryout if this is possible...abuthen..what's the next weekly progressive mileage next week Week 6? stay tuned...update next week... enjoy your weekend (and next week weekdays)... uncle busy gunning for 58KM in 8 Days..
  13. thank you @beast, as uncle has said, if SCSM 2020 (grand finale edition VR), if there is a "designated" route, we surely must know...what are the Covid-19 measures to be taken to ensure..."no clustering"...and whoever will be liable to be responsible...if in the "designated" event had been "shouted out" to gather (for the consecuative # 0f day) to participate on certain "designated venue"... if someone who has "infected" happens to be at the right time withthe "appropriate" scenario (maybe a very cold and damp weather), sneeze or walking without a mask...could be a non-participant...could be a participant... become a super spreader...and guess whom the public is going to point the finger at...surely the running community...."why can't they go other place, thought virtual run is any place any time...not same place any time for 10-day.."... maybe uncle asked ignorantly, which Virtual Race also has a "designated route" for x number of days? since this is an off-topic discussion...and whatever the outcome of the Virtual Race, interestingly, can be updated at the appropriate forum of interest... moving on...merit of taking SCSM Virtual Club VR 01-15 and Challenges...
  14. uncle completed this challenge in 2 sessions and rewarded with this 20km (1/2 Marathon distance) badge... did morning...about 6km road run (kallang PCN)....then the other 15km (ECP) road run...evening...cool.. coming weekend...planned 15KM VR5 and 5KM VR5...trail runs...
  15. of course, the next date for all to pop-in here to share is from August 8, 2021...and shall have a SG United "hell"-day celebrating Singapore's Birthday on August 8 (2300)... of course, shall be out by then...good behaviour ones come earlier....those naughty and not so nice ones (violent to kill and eat)...come out after Ghost Day August 22... and of course, there will be blur sotong ones who will always forget to return...and those who escape ones will remain to play "hide-and-seek"...they shall remained as wondering ghosts to HAUNT you...so have fun with them...nice and naughty and violent ones.. LEAVE YOUR UMBRELLA CLOSED until most return officially 2259...HELL DOOR closing fast...you have been warned...Sleep Can't Wait...don't play play...
  16. ok...noted with thanks.. was not updated on the change on the name of event...and assuming...CSC is "out" as the original Title of the race...otherwise...Civil Servants all run this one....lol... again...uncle's list of concerns...what was the norm of the past, cannot be the norm of the present, we know the rules Covid-19 measures have changed the rules of any mess event... even as in ST Virtual Run... if there should be mention on venue of organised routes...have they been approved by the Authority especially Sports Singapore with the Safe Management Measures taken seriously... extracted from myactive.sg noted that there was no mention of "designated" venues for the event..."Run for Singapore".. "anyway"..."anytime".. as public, they shall be concerned by the sudden sheer number of "big groups of runners"...on the designated routes by "Run for Singapore"...because someone or party seemed to have "organised" the gathering...run anti-clockwise...blah blah...and they are not even informed publicly there is such a Virtual Run on the designated venue...surely there will be "notices to public"...Virtual Race in progress...lol never mind on this off-topic disucssion...since it has nothing to do with SCSM 2020 format...SCSM 2020 "grand finale" is not official known, but just speculative...fun to discuss...what if... we just simply move on to SCSM 2020 VR topic, shall we?...and for those who have and will be registering for "Run for Singapore"...enjoy your "designated" route for all casual runners..and with competitive runners...just hope there is no "cluster" concern...
  17. think you are talking about this race... uncle has got a problem knowing this race, and very concerned: 1) It is not published officially as part of the Run Calendar, unlike all races that are listed under "Local Race", and if it is so, then why no one started the forum thread, and let everyone know and discuss? 2) It is like a Virtual Race, pop-up somewhere, with a venue, thought the understanding of Covid-19 measures are to avoid "clustering"... 3) Now that uncle (and maybe all in sgRunners) know that there was such a planned venue for the race, uncle would rather "avoid" crowding during the period, since Covid-19 "clustering" would definitely be identified by the Authority...eg...MOH announces...Runners are the caused for the cluster because "gathering of runners" for the mess event... 4) who are the organisers? MetaSport...known to be an organiser for MultiSports events... 5) surely, a shout to call the running community to "mess" run (exercise) at the location with Start & Finish...whether Day or Night...any hour... 6) unlike all other official Race Organisers who offer Virtual Races...they do not really target on a specific route or location...simply, they have a responsibility of not encouraging, in the midst of Covid-19 pendamic, social distancing is encouraged... 7) if this Virtual Run Race really gets "approval" from the Sports Singapore or Active Sg as they claim...then why not call them up, and ask...or show concern that there would be potential "clustering" by the running community 9-18 October because of an "event" with the call to "run at certain routes"... Uncle would open up for discussion with the concerns, because uncle never really think highly of MetaSports...and also, if something of Covid-19 clustering should happen, would MetaSports take the rap... thank you...uncle would rather avoid Marina Bay 9-18 October crowding...
  18. it all depends on... are you an elite or invited to run in a route because you have been top in the leaderboard from VR01-15...3KM/5KM/10KM/12KM... or are you a non-elite?...then you can choose your "fovourite route" or "anywhere"...treadmill or home... you can always like uncle...while ...this is vacuum-cleaning around the house... just put a phone with the app on it...and let it "run" while cleaning your home for hours... you are SCSM "finale" VR winner...Quarter/Half/Full Marathon... as though "like running in a Boston Marathon"...yawn....zZZZZZ..Sleep Can Wait...
  19. what if...SCSM 2020 VR (grand finale) follows...2020 Virtual London Marathon format...in Dec 5 only (TBA) from information from the only 2020 WMM that has both Run for Elites-only and Virtual Race for Non-Elites.. if registration fees are like SGD 20 for locals, and SGD 25 for overseas...2020 SCSM VR (grand finale)...an event that is supported and subsidised by the Authority...for SGUnited...surely a charity/donation drive that comes with run...
  20. btw.. for those who are...2020 ST Run... can always take SCSM VR4 challenge yourself as a warm-up FOC...complete 20KM in 2 sessions within 3+++ days...maybe coming SCSM VR single session should have a 18KM...TBA in October.. will be ineresting to know...what will be the format for the grand finale SCSM 2020 VR for Marathon, Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon...will there be a Virtual /Real Run Kid's Dash...Elites-only or only Qualified and Selected Runners for the Limited Real Run? TBA
  21. we have come to an ending soon for 7 month hungry ghost festival...2259hours... till we meet again...
  22. meanwhile...SA Elections Sept 25..who is Team Group Up... who will be the best selection for Sea Games 2021 - Gold only potential...nothing less... Flashback on events plaguing SA... SA has been plagued by problems in recent years, with public spats between athletes such as Soh Rui Yong and Ashley Liew. The NSA is currently embroiled in legal proceedings with two-time SEA Games marathon gold medallist Soh over comments made regarding his omission from the 2019 Games. After the biennial Games in the Philippines last December, the NSA was chided by national sports agency Sport Singapore for internal discord, with three coaches resigning soon after. The situation on the track was similarly disappointing, with the Republic's contingent bagging just three bronzes, after claiming eight medals (including two golds) in 2017 and nine (three golds) in 2015. Last month, former SA vice-president Loh Siang Piow, better known in the fraternity as Loh Chan Pew, was sentenced to 21 months' jail for molesting a teenage athlete twice in 2013.
