Thanks for the info bro.

OK with them to slightly increase their fees as they are still the cheapest and no frills HM/FM/Ultra you can find in Singapore.

Keeping fingers cross for this event. So far so good.

Does that mean there are less than 250 signing up for the run?

Is possible less than 250 sign ups as it is a grueling 2 days event.

If there is any race with a shot of continuing, it would be this one. 

With it's flexible run-own-time-own-target approach, there is very unlikely for a big mass of runners at the same time. And even if there is, it can be easily managed.

So while I am not running this race, I am rooting for it to proceed as planned. 

We need some good news amidst all these doom and gloom.

I'm not sure but someone asked at their FB page & they replied yes to go ahead.

Anyway, not counting my chickens first after seeing so many events either cancelled or postponed so far. Lol...

A lot of things keep changing rapidly and dynamically in this special and tough period... We need to be prepared at least mentally for any expected and unexpected changes... 💪

agree with this reason, Volvic Forest Force 50 (March 29) race stated reason for postponement in their event is they cannot meet this criteria

one way is race with staggered waves...

another way is to start from different part of the route...timing can be synced...all start together (less than 250)...maintain 1m apart...marshalls ensure no "contact" between runners at all time...

honestly, it is a grueling 2 days event,  die-hard loyal runners will be glad to participate because of "bonding"...as long as less than 250...

and for the sake of Covid-19, organiser must offer option to [Opt-Out] and get Refund...

agreed, so far, all had been cancelled or postponed...except this one and Metasprint..under some pressure from overseas participants for making plans to attend their multi-event sports - Triathlon...April 19.

    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done 👍   Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong, can apply.    I scare scare, should I call? 
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line is of course different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears  you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print. If she had to choose between the two of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!" 🥴
    • I’m not a local, so I didn’t know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover  19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
    • Oh, don't know how they got hold of them. But during last year's OCBC Cycle, I saw the organizer selling past years' shirts at the race pack collection venue. I think this is good recycling practice as there should be excess and will be a pity just to scrap them. As well sell cheap to cyclists who may want to buy them.
