ID Band

Recommended Posts

Many of us would bring along the mobile phone when we are out running but very few would carry our IC or other forms of identification. Most times, nothing would happen to us. However, if you are prone to run/cycle in trails/overseas alone, it may be useful when you are incapacitated as the ID band provides someone who is trying to help you with useful information like your name (in CPR, most times we need to call out the victim's name to see how conscious he or she is), your next-of-kin to contact, your blood type, medication you are currently taking and any allergies/medical conditions (e.g. asthma). The ID band also takes the tedium of filling out the same information behind the bib at every race and should you succumb to say heat exhaustion, all the useful information to the medical team is available on the band around your wrist or ankle.

The ID band also makes great gifts for runner friends. You can even have some made out with just your name, telephone and email and hand it to people you meet at races/training runs and say, "Hey that was a nice run, call me and we can run together again!"

I have one because I have multiple chronic medical conditions, am on medications + allergy to amoxil. So, I got the Road ID.

Hi all! Just to inform you guys. Running Lab is now carrying the ID Band. Anyone would like to order can head down to RL to get it.

It's basically a wristband with CO2 Laser engraving.

Thanks!

Cheaper than the U.S. Road ID that some of us have.

Wonder if this ID Band is as good and come with lifetime warranty too.... :unsure:

Just got it for my little girl this afternoon. I have the road ID for my other family member, the ID band IMO is more for those w/o medical issue, the information it can hold is lesser (50 Character for S size), the quality also feel less tougher than road ID. For a difference of less than $10, I choose road ID. :Worried:

I also saw the ID Band at RL. I think I prefer my roadID. At least it has a strap so it doesn't bounce around, which imo is a tad annoying.

Ok basically i have the roadID too, but after frequent usage, it may get a little smelly because it soaks up the sweat. The IDband on the other hand is like any other wristband, that can be washed easily and since it's rubber, it wont get smelly easily. Nevertheless, RoadID's design is better looking than the IDBand. But the IDBand can put slightly more information on it.

This does proves that you didn't wash it after each use.

I make it an effort to wash it with every use, and don't have the smelly issue at all.

We have to order online or filling up the form at the Running Lab with the promotion code: sgrunners?

The link that you all provide doesn't really help.

Keep going between the 2 sites that mention 10% discount & also the talking about the IDband.

If order online, what is the exact website?

Btw, any recommendation for running tight for long discount like Full Marathon or Triathlon?

Adidas, Nike, TYR, Arena or some triathlon brand selling at Running Lab?

Not sure which to buy?

Hope some helpful soul can help.

Thank you

What you need to do is to register, after which you can order online.

The sizes can be seen once you add to the shopping cart, which will require you to add in the details and choose the size.

As for the promotion code, you need to put it at the end of the order.

And this order in SGRunners got nothing to do with other vendors.

Hope it helps.

For more queries about this, please feel free to contact them here: http://www.idband.net/Preview/enquiry.php

Thanks! :)

    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.  
    • I like this statement: We all look forward to a positive future and I believe that this is a great first step in that direction. Marathon is a sport whereby elite athletes and fun runners are actually racing in the same race. It's what makes our sport unique and I find the essence of this to be beautiful.
