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:

    • 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...
