  1. Yah - it took me a long time to write as well!
  2. Hamburg marathon says they are going to run the event with 10,000 participants (one of the organisers delivered a talk about how they would run the event with social distancing and have written up info here https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2020/06/09/dairy-entry-future-proofing-events-with-the-environment/ - it is a long blog post) They had some other information on their website about how they were going to start in blocks + wearing a mask only at the start and when going thru the finish, but all that information seems to have been removed now and recently been replaced with an announcement https://www.haspa-marathon-hamburg.de/
  3. This is really good news as don't want to download this either. Have enough apps to work through without having duplicate apps Thanks for sharing
  4. Hmm - that is a bit crap. Am a programmer and they could recreate a program to make the data compatible
  5. It has not been done since Ironman took over as organiser. If you did not meet the cut off, you dnf. Since 2018 there is a tail runner. If you cannot keep up with the tail runner you were removed from the course.
  6. Having attended some seminars with organisers and been working with some of them, have written about the impact of Covid 19 on run events and how organisers, participants, volunteers and spectators will all need to raise their game and become more responsible. Hope this post gives you some insight into the thinking: https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2020/06/09/dairy-entry-future-proofing-events-with-the-environment/
  7. Totally agree that would be a waste. Let us know how Runkeeper respond. It's a new world and Asics needs to be on top of waste reduction. It's in their CSR for reduced carbon emissions!
  8. After 2017's fiasco, Ironman improved the course checks a lot and also harder to skip the loops.... although there were a couple of runners who decided to go under the ropes for the loop back at ECP in 2019. Expect those runners will get a DNF. Pre-Ironman - Used to see people skip loops - When the finish was at the Padang, there used to be a bus that would pick up runners just after Marine Barrage - about 5km from the finish who felt they wanted to give up. They would then be dropped 1km from the finish. Very tempting to take as it is about mid-day and sun would be beating down. I completed between 7-8 hours and remember there being people trying to tempt us into this bus. I know it dropped people off cos I saw them getting off towards the end to get their "entitlement". Am wondering what could be a reward? How about a digital medal that could be used to access other events?
  9. It seems to indicate you can use your GPS watch and then sync with your phone to upload into ASICS RunKeeper. Maybe @ZZIZZ can advise?
  10. If you want medals here is a VR Lots of challenges in June: https://app.runrocknrollvr.com/en/challenges
  11. Website here: https://goldcoastmarathon.com.au/virtual/
  12. There are many virtual running events now and this will be the new interim normal. Do list each event as separate events in the running events sections
  13. hahaha @RaijinFJ - have now just entered all 4 as well. Might as well take the tyre out for a run as well
  14. @ZZIZZ - you can run with your own nutrition and as you know sg has plenty of places with water coolers and bathrooms. Yes the water in the bathrooms is perfectly drinkable. Before the water coolers at MR, used to use the tap water and am still alive
  15. Thanks @ZZIZZ It is interesting. As Virtual Marathons will be the mainstay for the moment and to keep a customer base
