Not bad. But I prefer if the design is not so 'loud' 

Wow. Its indeed 'loud'!

I was still undecided whether to sign up, but now that I see your update, I think I should find something else to join...

Race medal revealed.

Apart from that, Straits Times Run has now jumped on the latest fad -- combination medal

By signing up for this year run, a virtual run next year and next year's ST run, the 3 medals will form a complete skyline of the city's landscape.

The second piece in the series can be gained through a virtual run, where participants sign up for and complete 18.45km between February and July next year. This can be done during a workout, and more details will be released later.

The estimated cost to take part in this virtual run is $10 per person, and those who complete it will be able to collect the virtual run medal at the 2020 ST Run race-pack collection.

The third and final piece of the "puzzle" will be given to those who complete their distance during next year's ST Run. It will have the words "Celebrating 175 years", which marks The Straits Times' 175th anniversary in 2020.

More details: ST Run finishers can collect trilogy of medals that portray cityscape

I like the idea but I really really hate the idea of a virtual run especially when I dun have a GPS watch and I dun like to run with my smartphone. But I may not have a choice if I want to complete the puzzle.

Sweetener: "Medal maker ELM is also looking into the possibility of providing a box or plate - at a small cost - so runners can display their collection. Details have yet to be confirmed." That would be quite awesome actually.

Frankly, the design of this combination medal set is pretty "generic" - Unlike others where they seem to be more like puzzle pieces, these ST ones can each be their own standalone piece. May be good in a way if anyone is not looking to collect the entire set.

I agree. I think the first The Performance Series 2016 medal set is still the best. The one that forms a outline of Singapore.

2nd Best is the set of POSB Runs for Kids medals that form the POSB logo.

Yeah. Considering the usual no of participants for this race, the no of counters quite few. So the queue spilled over outside and not moving very fast. At least, the security is doing a good job at crowd control. 

Took about 30 mins to collect mine from about 20+ in the queue outside. The queue in front of the counter probably another 50 or so. 

Race expo quite bare but Tiger Balm has quite a good package deal. Thankfully the gauntlet of insurance agents is mercifully low. :crazysmile:

    • On that note, I do agree that I feel fortunate that our government is able to make swift decisions to procure vaccines and we are now ahead of other countries to get ourselves vaccinated. The frontliners are now getting vaccination first, and I believe a more widespread public education of vaccination should kick in soon to inform the public on the pros and risks so that we can make our own¬†informed decision. Regarding the Olympics on the other thread, I guess Japan is in a difficult position as they have already committed massively (financially especially) on it and this will amass to a sizeable economic loss for them if they can't eventually hold it.¬†So it is a must go for them to cut their losses, even if it means less tourism dollars from those who are here to support the event.
    • In any case, at least Singapore is procuring vaccines from countries¬†who are transparent with their data. While I agree¬†there's some risk (as with all vaccines),¬†at least you and your doctor can make an informed decision¬†for yourselves¬†based on the best knowledge that the¬†doctors. scientists and researchers of these manufacturers are aware of. As for us over here, if we (ever) do get a vaccine, it seems we'll be forced*¬†to accept one from shady manufacturers that have repeatedly withheld, or distorted their third stage clinical trial data. I know COVID's (practically) non existent there in Singapore, so it doesn't seem that urgent, but as far as a decent¬†vaccine¬†for this plague is concerned,¬†I think you guys should consider yourself fortunate. I'm certain¬†a lot of people elsewhere¬†would¬†gladly get in line in your place there¬†if Singaporeans don't want it.¬†¬†ūüėá ¬† *it's an open secret here that they've already bought off the major decision makers in that aspect.
    • What's up everyone?¬†ūüėĀ¬† I'll be doing a few virtual races myself (only the free ones) for this year, just for the heck of it, although I presume it would be safe to consider a real race somewhere near the end of 2022? (SCSM2022?)¬†ūüėÖ¬† That will mean my theoretical maximum¬†heart rate will be slower by 2 then (minus 2 years) but that's life LOL. I've been reading up on news in Japan, and the way things are over there, I think the (already postponed) 2020 Olympics are really doomed. They'd be crazy to push through with it. I should've gotten one of those Tokyo 2020 Olympics promotional shirts they were selling when I was there¬†in the months before the pandemic¬†- it would've made¬†a good conversation piece someday¬†ūüėú
