At least they tried to change up the route in the past few years. 

And if running ECP is still not your thing (which is the feedback you gave previously too), then yes go sign up for something else.

I doubt they will change the timing so abruptly. Might be a few years of marketing before the change...

Marketing or planning? If marketing then I don't understand why it will take a few years. Planning takes time but also no need that long bah.

I doubt it will turn into a night race anytime soon. Logistics are more challenging to manage and so far Ironman have not proven itself to be able to handle them well yet.

need to market to local and overseas runners for them to get accustomed to.. planning of course needed as well... I still think it might take some years to get it right...

I disagree that you need that much time to market such a change. I understand you would think that runners would need time to adjust to changes, but that is probably more so for loyal runners who are used to running in certain timings in the past. As a runner,  it doesn't bother me that much to run in the day or night. As an organizer I don't think that would affect my marketing plans too and besides I can reach out to new runners whom I can get to register that like running in the evening.

No amount of time planning would ensure that things will go right on the actual race day. It's mostly about learning through the years. And even that does not guarantee that the leanings will be taken seriously and will equate to a better and better running experience (Refer to our local marathons).

Good points by Beast!

As a previous SG run event participant, I am annoyed how race organizers here don't get their basics right when comes to event execution (logistics such as race pack collection, bag deposit, actual race experience, post-race finisher entitlement collection etc).

They have their chances to improve the run event execution from runners' feedback, media coverage which they don't do a good job here!

Don't count too much hope on the organisers and agree with you "different problem" may surface.

With sunglass as a participant's entitlement, I think we can confirm that it'll not be a night race this year. :P

I registered for FM. Take note of the size of the Singlet and Finisher T. It is still quite big so I choose S and XS .

    • The only local race that returns 100% Refund - NTUC Income EcoRun 2020 Entry fee was the financial transaction which we agreed to take part in the race with the stipulation of R&R agreed with the organizer on the force majeure clause. Hence, I believe the new legislation can outlawed the force majeure clause... Uncle stands firmly on this because the act of force majeure is enforced in SG (revoke on the obligation of previous agreement to the force majeure clause of No Refund). Any dispute of Full Refund can now be settled with the Law Minister for consideration in this new legislation. Question is how many would want to stand up collectively? Thanks to @beast, you sounded like you can be in the legal professional. Again, any consideration of Refund is definitely good for Loyalty Participants as well as those who are on the sideline looking at how Race Organizer (aka Pink Apple Pte Ltd) responds as an obligated professional contractual service to Runners during Covid-19. Will the same professional service rendered in the past be the same in the postponed races in the future? Uncle doubted with much reservation because of the expectation that new "sanitized" races of the future will involve more administrative cost due to enhanced measures to make sure races are complied to local authority new guidelines for events. Such example could be restrictions to Events from Thousands to only Hundreds to only Tens. Then how?  In current CB, we are not to meet for any non-essential reason. Then we cannot gather even with up to 10 (That was how the second postpone due to Covid-19 was the reason). Previously was we cannot gather even with up to 250 (That was how the first postpone due to Covid-19 was the reason). 😷 A year ago in 2019...Past Event Race results for the 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2019 held April 7 have not been released due to payment issues (info - https://mybestruns.com/running-news.php/3221)     Please, none of the competitive prize money has been paid (according to the report), don't punish the runners was in 2019. Now this is the time to fulfill your contractual obligations for Full Refund in 2020 to 10,000 - 15,000 participants. If at just $70 per participant, you are obligated for up to $1 million for Full Refund...wah...no wonder under force majeure clause...what if it is revoked?
    • I view it as how well you want to argue this. For me I would actually consider our "full registration fee" as "full deposit", because the service that is promised to us was not yet delivered when we make the payment. Hence the payment can be viewed as a as a pledge of contract in the form of deposit, where we pay first and expect the service that we paid for to be delivered later.  If we can take it from that perspective, then I believe the new legislation can outlawed the force majeure clause. But of course, I am no lawyer.
    • glad to know that action has been taken...and glad to know that some here have had their refunds...locals as well as overseas... please updates...for we are here to be "awakened" because of Covid-19...how Refund process takes place...so that we can expect Post Covid-19...a policy on how long with a Refund process would be expected... The 12th edition of the the OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore saw close to 25,000 participants...yes, agree...expect more time if all 25,000 participants would want Full Refund... if $50 on average x 25,000...factoring races from 5km to Full Marathon....wah $1.25 million....will have to be paid out.... Another Full Refund (with no option to transfer slot to 2021) is in progess will be @ NTUC Income Run 2020....3-4 more weeks outstanding...that one is about 9,000 in 2019....
    • Yes, do give them some time. The participation for Sundown is usually more than 10K. If majority requests for refund, it will definitely take time.
    • hello@sundownmaration.com (infinitus) replied to you "refund was still under administrative process"..ok 👌 uncle upgrade Sundown Marathon in 2021 from "negative" to "neutral" status for meeting the goal of participants who opt for refund instead of transfering slot to 2021..in the year 2020... very soon, we shall be saying goodbye@sundownmarathon.com in 2020....it has been a memorial sundown marathon edition...the race was cancelled..because of Covid-19. 😷
