I like metropark for its closeness to MTR and finish point.

U can see the runners finishing their run.

Also in room internet, good view.

U may want to use zuji to book.

22-25 Feb. Avg nightly 190.

23-25 Feb. 203.90.

I've not try Cosmo,

Cosmo is very cheap, but very far from MTR and the end point.

Hi,

Will be staying in Wanchai during the period.

Race going to start at 7:10 AM

Intend to catch a cab to the race site in the early morning (thought of taking the ferry but ferry service from Wanchai to Tsim Tsai Wan only starts at 6:30 AM), anyone had similar experience?

Will it be difficult to catch a cab on a early Sunday morning in Wanchai? If so, what the estiminated cost? HKG$ 75???

roads leading to the race site shld b closed by tht time cos start time for competitive 10km is at 5.30am. and roads will be closed hours before the 5.30am flag off... if i aint wrong, they have MTR arrangement to go 24hrs. need to double confirm...

MTR starts early, something like 3 or 4 am, and it's easier to go by MTR vs ferry/cab.

Take the MTR. Wanchai to Central and then Central to TST (starting point). Trains run from 3 or 4am, and should only take you 20 minutes (very easy to navigate).

Taxi is expensive, and will take very long (as the cross harbour tunnel will be closed for the race and you would need to take another tunnel). Presume you meant the Wanchai to Tsim Tsai Tsui ferry? Don't believe it operates that early on a Sunday morning.

    • Challenge Events in SCSM Virtual Club are virtually recording on your distance with no ranking...so whether if you have more digital badges... but for the Leaderboard Ranking on Virtual Races, pace and timing is important...serious and competitive ones use them to "compete" virtually...locally and globally... actually, another way to go about this "algorithm" is to activate 2 apps...uncle got Runkeeper (Duration) and Adidas Running (Distance)... say in 30 min session (Runkeeper), will alert Uncle...to end Challenge....and 13KM (Adidas Running), will alert Uncle to end Race... only during the window of opportunity on Friday from 0500am - 2359... when both Challenges and VR Events clash...so it will be quite reasonable for BOTH to capture data from one another...like 30 min session challenge captured also in VR of say 5KM..assuming there MR25 runners...5-6KM in 30min...Challenge and VR digital badges.. Because VR Leaderboard with Ranking is more important than Challenges...everyone reserves the best effort on Weekend VR...and would surely do not wish to see "technical errors".. Because, this is the first time VR has a double up...and so Uncle first look at the algorithm "in order" so that the "competition" in the Leaderboard for VR is always fair and authentic...and with "reasonable" confidence...the 42-KM (VR 9) can be the possible "race format" for the "Grand Finale"...if there should be verified by uncle only by the end of the week...since planning of routes and 12-hour back-to-back sessions (4) have been planned...and with a Friday.. The other one of interest is if there should be SCSM 2020 Team of 6 Ekiden [Virtual Race] again, if the setup process what we Techie call the "staking" order...5KM first, then 5KM, 10KM, 5KM, 10KM and lastly 7.195KM...yes, we can have actually authentic Ekiden Teams for Leaderboard too... how about if there should be SCSM Ekiden Team Virtual Race... would you all be interested to form a sgRunners[2020] Virtual Team? 😀  
    • uncle interested to know if Run as One racing app is ready... this one really track the "designated" routes...  
    • uncle follows MyBestRuns...on their Best Upcoming Races... and Most Popular 200 Races for most updates...including events scheduled in 2021...
    • in case you want to know more... https://www.runsohfast.com/post/update-on-malik-aljunied-lawsuit-he-s-late-again Nomination by (National Sports Association) NSA, but final selection and decision is approved by SNOC... Just like why 2019 SEA GAMES Marathon... how did Gordon Lim and Loh Yuting (Men's) got Selected and represent Singapore...you mean Mr Ang Peng Siong (as VP - Training & Selection)...was clearly responsible for nominating them...sorry to say...Mr Ang Peng Siong was always in Swimming (Pool) and not in Running (Tracks)....and no worry Mr Ang will hate uncle for saying, remember...we are bros...sports fraternity...but different sporting activity only...😀 Just wish SOH can do his best lah! To be the First Local Marathoner to be in because he is the best qualified...winning a Medal is secondary...
    • I think MyBestRun should give more details like whether the run is holding a virtual edition instead or not... Personally I don't consider the event cancelled if it has turned into a virtual run... in the record books it will still be listed as the event being held, just not in the usual mass format...
