Postponement of 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2020

The 2XU Compression Run team and their partner, Pink Apple Pte Ltd, understand that there may be uncertainty in participating in the 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2020 with the current COVID-19 situation.

In light of this, 2XU Compression Run Singapore will be postponed from the original date of 5th April 2020 to 31st May 2020.The event will continue to be held at the F1 Pit Building, Singapore. Please also be informed that Race Entry Pack Collection will be shifted from 27th – 29th March 2020 to 15th – 17th May 2020 at Marina Square, Level 2 Central Atrium.

This decision was made with careful considerations and assessment of the guidelines from the Ministry of Health with regards to large-scale events. The health and safety of everyone from our participants, to our crew and volunteers is of utmost importance to us.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your kind understanding. We hope that all of us will stand together to stay positive in difficult times. We urge all participants, crew and volunteers to stay vigilant and maintain good personal hygiene.

As a token of appreciation, all registered participants before 31st March 2020, 11.59pm (GMT +8) will receive an exclusive 2XU Compression Run Hip Pack.

Otherwise, participants may transfer their 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2020 race slot to 2XU Compression Run Malaysia 2020 or 2XU Compression Run Indonesia 2020. Participants may also transfer their race slot to 2XU Compression Run Singapore 2021. Please refer to the terms and conditions below for more details.

Sincerely,
The 2XU Compression Run Team and Pink Apple Pte Ltd

[So the decision now is: If you agree to run on 31 May, which is just 1 week after Sundown Marathon, you will receive a Hip Pack. Otherwise you are also free to transfer your race slot. For me, I have chosen to transfer the slot to 2021.]

Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, the running calendar was looking kind of bare with seemingly fewer events being announced or shifted online.

So with the current situation, I think we can expect even fewer races between now and end Jun earliest. There may also been a great bunching of events in the 2nd half of the year (provided the COVID-19 situation stabilised). 

Since I'm not planning to run SDM, it is non-issue for me to shift to the new date. 

All eyes now on whether Income Eco Run will be the next to announce a postponement. I think maybe 50-50 as of now.

The first half of the year has always quite bare compared to the packed second half. I raised this interesting observation before but there doesn't seem to be any good explanation other than the fact that it is a mere coincidence.

Other than SDM being back to back, the reason why I opted to transfer to next year is because I am doubtful that the COVID-19 situation will be stabilized by end of May. I predict it might still be rampant till at least Q3 of the year, so there might be another messy postpone of date again.

Eco Run still has about a month to "wait and see", but I am leaning towards them shifting the date as well

No news of Army Half Marathon. I won't be surprise in light of this virus and the postpone of races, the AHM will not be held in this year. 

Even if the situation has stablized by then, there might be recovery work to do by SAF and hence they won't have the manpower to focus on AHM, something that has not been on their priority list for the last few years.

I have updated the first post to reflect the latest information because of the postponement.

Since the race has been postponed, I can continue with my streak. :crazysmile:

And for those wondering what the hip pack is, an image has been released by Pink Apple.

Somehow feel it is quite good of them to give the hip pack for race postponement.

I definitely won't complain if they want to throw in free stuffs.

I definitely will complain if they include unnecessary items and then slyly increasing the race fee by citing 'excellent value' (looking at you CSC Run by the Bay!)

With the new directive from MOH, there's no way for the event to proceed on  31 May. 

Quote

All events and gatherings with 250 or more participants attending at any one time must be suspended to reduce the risk of further local transmission of COVID-19, the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced on Friday (Mar 20). 

This is an expansion of the previous requirement for ticketed cultural, sports and entertainment events to be limited to fewer than 250 participants, said MOH in a press release. 

The requirement goes into effect immediately until Jun 30.  

SOURCE: All events, gatherings with 250 participants or more must be suspended to reduce further COVID-19 spread: MOH

What will Pink Apple do now? I think they have no choice now but to postpone the event again. Anyway this event was also postponed when LKY passed away in 2015.

I would say few organizer can be as wise as the organizer of JP Morgan CC race. They rescheduled the race from April 8th to the end of November... "farseeing", right? 🤗
