Fantastic organization this morning with water points for the 10km route. Free singlet, race belt, key chain, towel and most importantly getting some free coaching and insights into how to improve our runs :)

Singlet was before. Towel and key chain were after. Race belt was after too but you had to connect thru your Facebook account there and then to 'check in' before getting the belt. This was my experience at Mobile Run 1, I believe the next 7 is the same :)

I meant after the run, we had to queue up to collect our momentos such as key chain and towel. Only when you showed them that you had logged in to your Facebook account and checked in your status, then they gave the race belt. That was last week. Not sure if we will be given another singlet and everything else again. Will be nice if so :D

Team BMW runs serve both for runners as well as for pacers. Depending on your preferred pace, you run with the pacer groups undergoing their pacer training at the same time. This morning, distance per loop was 6km. I chose to run with the 4hour15min pacer group doing a 6min/km pace. Distance is up to you and you can fall out at any point in time. Hope this explains :)

I wanted to sign up for Mobile Run (MR) 2 within 24 hours of the email notice, but all 150 slots were taken up.

So, one earns 10 points for attend MR2. Question is, did all 150 people who registered turn up? If some don't, perhaps they should have 10 points deducted? B'cos they deprived others from signing up and joining in the run.

for those who like uncle cannot "see" what Team BMW's gifts for joining them.. http://www.mycarforu...ntry&id=62234 a cap, wrist band, race belt and the best of all, a dri-fit T shirt ..to train for pacers.. means "volunteers"..unlike last year..volunteer pacers were not given sufficient time to train and get to know each other better..and that was the feedback..and this year in 2012.. at least uncle sees the effort to train "volunteers" from all walks of life..better training program..must give kudos for such efforts..

so what's the difference between Team BMW and Team Sundown (aka Team FatBird) in both marathons?.. the Team BMW organises a training plan for volunteers..while Team Sundown is a running club make up of passionate runners..who not only organise runs for the public, but also for their members..and every runner who is present seems to know whom they would meet..familiar faces or somebody of similar passion (running fraternity)..of course, Team Sundown pacers are nominated within their group..for Sundown marathon run

uncle wishes well..Team BMW runners who volunteered to pace..and the demanding training that they have to put up with..respect...hope all of you end up with the "prizes" or gifts of.. http://www.mycarforum.com/index.php?act=attach&type=blogentry&id=62236 .. as your motivation..

The BMW TEAM mobile is for normal runners to run/learn from the pacers.

Just wondering is the participants given a free shirt for every run or only for the first time?

    • 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.
