The definition of "Trinity Race" is those races (including swim, bike and run) which issued Finisher Medal, Finisher Tee and Race Certificate.

The "Trinity Race" tastes better similar to 3-in-1 drinks such as Super CoffeeMix (coffee, cream and sugar - siew dai means less sugar/sweet if possible) ! :rolleyes:

Will be updated from time to time ...

Thanks for starting the thread.

Some comments if I may. I think if a race in any category gives the full compliment of Finisher Medal, Finisher Tee and e-cert/physical cert, then it should be a Trinty run

OK. I can provide additional inputs.

1) I think can scratch Safari Zoo Run 2015 from the list. There was definitely no finisher tee for this race. I also dun rem any e-cert.

2) 2014 Marina Run is not a Trinity Race. No finisher tee was issued.

3) 2014 ST Run at the Hub should be a Trinity Race for the HM.

4) 2014 Run350 would have been a Trinity Race if the HM was not cancelled. So I dun know if you want to call it Trinity Race or not.

5) 2014 AHM is a Trinity Race for the HM.

I will add on when I confirmed the status. So pls update the first post. Thanks!

Thank you Johnatton, the eCert download link is not obvious, it is a third small icon from the left after facebook and twitter icons.

With this, Tri Factor Run is a "trinity run" !

Thank You Ms pris, is it an ELM finisher medal ?

Nope. It was not an ELM medal. In any case, ELM medal is irrelevant for yr Trinity Run right? :crazysmile:

Or you coming up with special classification for Trinity races with ELM medals? Trinity+?? :spiteful:

Don't get me wrong bro wolf, from Pris's blog the finisher medal's triangular ribbon is one of the ELM "hallmark" !
Since it was a gender specific race and you're not wearing skirt :crazy: , I afraid the potential ELM medal may slip from your [Medal Hunters United] List of ELM Medal classification !

I think Shape Run 2015 was a trinity run.

Medal and tee got photo in my blog. http://www.prischew.com/running/shape-run-2015/

A cert was released about a week later.

Thank You Ms pris, is it an ELM finisher medal ?

Not ELM.

Does it have to be ELM to be a trinity run?

Ms Pris, the definition of "trinity run" is simple as long as there are three finisher items ! No string attached with brands for apparel or medal !

Thanks activerun! Haha ok.

Anyway I checked the medal one more time. There's no ELM marking so cannot be classified as ELM medal.

Guess Lonewolf can breathe a sigh of relief now... hahaha. ;)

For me, the definition of an ELM medal is the 'ELM' marking. No marking I dun considered ELM medals.

I mean its like asking BMW to manufacture their cars and then de-badge it. Does that makes sense? Of cos not. So I dun take into consideration how 'ELM-like' the medal is. From the build quality or the so-called triangular ribbon, heck even the box which the medals are packed in. No ELM mark? Not an ELM medal. Simple and less contentious and confusing. Until and unless I can get an inside source from ELM itself that yes they made this particular medals without the ELM mark.

In this day and age, its actually quite easy to get pictures of medals of race that you dun participate in. So I'm on it. I usually check one or twice a month on all the race medals to make sure that no potential ELM medals slipped through my notice. Else how to build the most comprehensive ELM medal database?

The bigger challenge is to go back through time to the earlier years. I think I got the full list of ELM medals back to 2010 but I'm still double checking before updating the thread.

That said, there is one known ELM medal without the ELM marking - the SEA Games supporters medallion and the SEA Games winners medals.

RunNUS 2015 is not a "trinity" run including 15 km and SG50 Team Challenge since the promised eCertificate has vaporized !

Yeah. Confirmed no more e-certificate. Contender for worst race organiser of the year.

Does Craze Ultra qualify as a Trinity Run as finishers do get finisher tee, medal and e-cert (although tee and medal are optional purchase)?

Bro Jerry, may be not because "Trinity Run" should provide these entitlements to all runners without condition or optional !

    • @Lady Ice and @kohpapa Thank you for your warm advices and concern. I really appreciate it. Honestly, as of now from 1-10 the pain is 7. Yes, i will stop running and do walking instead. I still have 7 days to rest and recover. And hoping on the race day will be gone, If not I will take your advice to withdraw and wait for another time. The thing is that a bit disappointing to train for almost 1.5months then suddenly injured. 😭. If ever I can make it on the race day hopefully I can get my target 4.50hrs under.. 🤭 Once again thank you so so much gurus. Keep you posted. Gudnyt!

    • Well, I shall be ready in my 2XU for this coming 2019 SCSM Maiden Evening Marathon with an aging right leg (soreness) which I need to compress,  k-tape with knee-cap support. Expensive, yes.  If in triathlon (swim then cycle/run), it is necessary. For run? Depends. Yes, what if the weather is wet and rainy and you need warmth? Then a compression running suite will be an alternative. It is expected, a cooler, wetter evening for this maiden SCSM Evening Marathon. My decision is to gear up appropriately and minimise "discomfort" on my soreness on my aging right leg with compression, taping and knee-cap support. 2XU alternatives : Tried them before. Later, losses its "Compression" due to the material degenerating after numerous wears.   
    • Knowing that you are determined to do your first marathon without having the time to let your "soreness" heal and to recover, this is what will be recommended. However, if the pain on the calves are "extreme", please stop running and just walk. There is another Marathon in another time, and so better to be injury-free next time. "No pain no gain" is actually is not advocated in this running forum. However, many times, there are just "nursing" pain due to over training or even weather change which is cooler in the past days (wetter). If your desire in this first marathon is how to take care of the "calves" during the run, my suggestion and solution is to "minimise" the discomfort, and not healing. The rest of your maiden marathon journey will depend on the will and determination to finish the race which you have signed up for. 7-day counting, and just like you, I am nursing an aging right leg, which I also have to prepare to "compress" with tape and knee-cap support. As with a wetter day ahead, need to have a "compress" running gear to keep me warm during the night. Yes, that will be what I will be ready next week, SCSM 1st Evening Marathon. Best wishes, and listen to your body. Extreme pain is never encouraged to run. Let your heart and soul determines what is in your First Marathon.
    • Do not do any running until the soreness goes away. You can probably do walking without pain You might try a sports massage to go into your glutes and down the calf. This is so that you can ease off the tension from the back down. Tape on the day of the race (as provided by bro Koh Papa) or wear compression socks but be aware that you will need to take this easy, otherwise risk pain mid-way. If you do feel pain during the SCSM, then see if you can rest a little and let the pain go away....then walk with small steps. If you try to run again once pain has set in 'cos you will risk a DNF. Also change your mindset about the time you will get..... and if you want to achieve something, tell runners to please put their rubbish in the bin to keep the route litter free   Look forward to your report . Enjoy the night
