I dun see how they can proceed and comply with MOH's latest directive.

Ticketed events with 250 participants or more to be deferred or cancelled under COVID-19 social-distancing measures: MOH

I don't think can be postponed. They need to cordon off the area for the Mandai Project already...

Also it is not compulsory for them to cancel it.

Quote

If tickets have been sold for these events, organisers must demonstrate that satisfactory precautionary measures are in place before they can proceed, the ministry said.

If they stagger start times well apart from each other, and provide adequate hydration and wet towels, there is still a slight chance it can proceed? Not from MOH, just thinking aloud if these will constitute as "satisfactory precautionary measures".

Even though it is not compulsory to cancel, I think most organizers will be more cautious and just cancel - There's already a government advisory...... and given the current situation, no one will blame them for cancelling.

The worst possibility that can happen is to push through with the event, then realise that one person became a confirmed case (with symptoms on event day), and passed it to others during the event...... There were already a few clusters in SG, due to the same reason.

He never says the event will be cancelled...

The article says "If tickets have been sold for these events, organisers must demonstrate that satisfactory precautionary measures are in place before they can proceed,"

It is safe to assume that it is hard to demonstrate satisfactory social distancing in a way and the easier way is to cancel...

Well, even assuming they get a green light from the authorities to proceed, I don't thnik any race organizer would risk the ignominy of being blamed for causing an outbreak if clusters of infections are traced back to the event! 😬

If they won't give a refund, on the bright side at least you'll be getting some of your registration fee back by way of some benefits/entitilements. 😅

Well, runners do get additional complimentary entry to the Night Safari and Bird Park. This is a good gesture, at least to me, as I am not a wild life member and thus save money in visiting these places.

But I do feel disappointed not able to run in the zoo. Locally, this is one of the unique race apart from Yellow Ribbon where the running venues or finisher point is really different.

I can relate to that. I really miss running at places like Mandai for the Energizer Night Trail Run and Changi Exhibition Centre for past Sundown...

this has been a "theme" run and that involves family with children...mostly, you are allowed to walk and sightseeing...and if the "theme" has become you want to be "immerse" with animals, and decide to stop...there is actually no competitive reason...because it has be family-oriented event...

it is such unfortunately, that on the Last and Finale Edition, this race is postponed...

zoo.jpg

spread over different routes...and since there will be upgrading and renovation of new Zoo (which also will include Bird Bird in the near future)...

so all participants would never be bothered with the postponement...because they are looking forward....new routes that will be definitely be more interesting because nobody would know what to expect then...

so no, there will definitely no substitution for Mandai Trail run...Central Catchment Nature Reserve or PCN around it...

simply...family-oriented run/walk/tour objective is never to visit Central Catchment Nature Reserve...it is a journey of seeing Animals, Birds, Reptiles...Water Mammals...and more...together...friends of Animals/Birds/Reptiles...

but again mess gathering of crowd is not a norm at the current Covid-19 pandemic..

so look forward...Postpone is actually good news...participants will be entitled to the "missing" event till until the new Zoo is ready...why not...surely anticipation...future "Zoo race" to be run/walk/visit will be much better than present one...right?
