Angry again!

Nowadays, early bird eats the worm wood !

Paid Early Bird fee $61.20 for "loyalist" rate and still more expensive than $78 - 25% = $58.50 .

This is normal for Epic ESR. 

Nothing to be angry about. 

Just vote with your wallet next time and just dun join.

Not just Epic ESR. A lot of race organizers are now doing flash sales to boost sign ups. Many of my friends signed up for SCSM 2019 due to the $54 FM promo.

Loyalty is really worthless these days. If you can afford to wait for the flash sales, you are highly encouraged not to sign up too early.  Worst case is to get a bib without your name but the price will still be comparatively cheaper than the so-called loyalty early bird rates.

I try not to bias, all organizers have their strength and weaknesses. The problem is I just love Saturday evening run. Compared with Virtual Run, the "Real Run" organizers are working much harder so I will always support them.

Agree with you Beast! It's now a trend.

So next year's SCSM we wait for the flash sale? Most likely will have because it is 55 years and seems they need more to sign up for FM?

Starfinder, I hope SCSM has learnt the lesson not to  issue any promo that is cheaper than (super) early bird fees!

i think they are happier cause it boosts their sales... doubt they learn any lessons here..... but well, i have friends who signed up due to $54 (especially those on the fence)... let's see if they will do another $55 sales...

Worst case is there is no flash sales.

Then it's an easy solution.

No Flash Sale. No Run.

Especially if it's for a race that you are sitting on the fence.

While I may understand why the decision  has to be made to postpone the event, I think it's kind of shi**y that EPIC-ESR does not offer to refund the registration fee. 

By 'automatically' signing those who registered to an new unannounced date is ridiculous. There is no guarantee that those who signed up for the run for 15 Feb 2020 will be able to make it on the rescheduled date. 

Given the fluidity of the situation, maybe they overlook this. And I hope EPIC-ESR will honour refund once the rescheduled date is announced. We'll see but given their patchy track record, I will not hold my breadth.

Exactly. I think the immediate concern of many of the runners is a refund, which is common sense and should not have been overlooked. Just adding a simple liner of saying that the procedures for the refund will be made known together with the new date will prevent many of the people asking about it.

    • Update: Uncle ran "Bukit Timah Bike Trail" illegally to explore route...nearly kena       For your interest, Forest Force 50 15KM route on 29th March 2020 (Sun)     Met their production crew at Dairy Farm Nature Park side...while uncle exit to Singapore Quarry... Yes, if uncle kena caught running at Bike Trail, kena FINE is $2,000. Please follow only Hiking (Runner) Trail like this one at Chestnut Nature Park. Got tip from one of the crew "runners" from the Forest Force 50 Organising Committee, go to the Summit from Hindede side to take the route to Daisy Farm Nature Park, and that is the "pipe line" route of Bukit Timah Nature Park. Sounded like the same Forest Force 50 crew also knew about the Trans Singapore routes. Same theme - a "continuous" route.  only 2 trail races here in Singapore... Aiya, for Uncle, if can run these trail routes every weekend, save money and DIY and  "illegally" enter Bike Trail (more challenging terrain like roller coastal)...hope not kena caught...since uncle sneaked into the Bike Trail "only during wee hours from 3-4am with trail lights"...                 Yet to run the full 25km or 50km route, abuthen Forest Force 50 also got same 15km/25km/50km routes only their Start Point is from Daisy Farm Nature Park. Easy lah, crash course, pretend innocently don't know got race on 29th March 2020 (Sun), and DIY with them ( the real runners for races)... Next week, explore "Trail !Ultra Run" route of Trans Singapore 2020.
    • Update: Info and 15KM route video   Follow this video on Volvic Forect Force 15KM route Actually, uncle ran yesterday from Hindede Mountain Bike Trail (illegally, not for runners) and when exited to Singapore Quarry, met this video production crew as well as "acting runners". Even engaged a conversation with one of the "runners" and find out more information.  
    • please contribute your post on anything you have run to this sub-forum thank you for your contribution, enjoy your running experience 👌
    • ^ I was thinking the same thing. I was optimistically hoping for the outbreak to mellow down by summer (for the northern hemisphere) but then I realise even if that happens, the underlying tension might still be there. So I'm just going to sit out on all international marathons until WHO declares the end of pandemic. Support local events for now!     
    • 2:55! Wow!😅  I don't think I'll ever get to that level since I'm getting on in years... I did consider doing the Sydney Marathon (September) or the CIty to Surf for Active Marathon in Perth (August) instead of my Oct or Nov race, but I'm hesitating. (I don't know if I'll get flagged/scolded by the admins for saying this here) but in Australia I occasionally come across people who, uhm let me just describe as... "not nice". They may not be openly shaking their fists in your face telling you to get out of their country, but they sure will make you feel unwelcome- even if you're not doing anything wrong, are acting on your best manners, and speak fluent English (I grew up in America). You know what I mean? 😓 Now with this virus scare going on, I'm worried they may not treat Asians too well (or even worse) 😨 The world is a big place, and there are many other places to go to in the meantime...
