Nice! Hmm. 2XU still holding strong not to refund... 🙄

Yes, Boss. 2XU still want everyone to race in 2020. But if Singapore Circuit Breaker get extended, then how to have mass running event?

Can, Elite-only run, like all other major marathon races, the rest of mass do Virtual Race.

Not in Singapore...............

And even if CB is lifted, still must practice safe distancing and also no mass gatherings (which I understand incl mass running events) unless you only have....I don't know.....less than 10 elites running and not be too near each ? 

 

BUT 2XU, please refund those who signed up lah

Tokyo Marathon limited to elite runners over virus fears

(The Mainichi - Tokyo report extracted)

it was reported, over 200 ran.

I wonder if marathons will now turn into elite events for the meantime -  as in for 2:45 times or better only...

My goodness, it would be easier to qualify for Boston rather than sign up with them then! 🥴 

These organizers might be forgetting that its the ordinary, middle of the pack (4hr ++ time runners) whose registration fees make these events even possible. I don't want to pay for an event so the elites can run the course, while the rest of us will just have to content ourselves with sending them our GPS watch logs. I might as well run a marathon or ultra on my own... for free! 😜

How about doing an inexpensive virtual marathon race? Have a medal at least to celebrate the completion? 😆

running events are considered non essential. it is a possibility that mass gathering of any event will not be allowed even though the number of community spread is getting lesser or maybe even down to zero as long as the vaccine is not available and the world's number of infected people is still alot, i don't think our govt will take any chance until the end of the year to prevent second wave from happening. If second wave ever happened, which historically did happened, govt must ensure that they are in control and bring it back down again.

I agree but look at the people running/jogging or walking on PCN - Park Connector Networks especially during weekends. It's crazy. Almost no zero distancing

We've got the same problem here. I just move away as much as I can.
I never say anything though. If you try that here where I run, they'll just give you a funny look and think you're "kay poh🙄

What most people don't seem to realize is that the problem (Covid-19) hasn't been eradicated.  It's still here, active and spreading. All these global lockdowns just managed to SLOW it, but its far from over. ☠️☠️☠️

Some personal thoughts on the virtual run version:

1) I understand they are trying to be different from the others virtual run, but man... you need to register as a team? Unless your other half is also a runner, or you have very close friends who are just as enthusiastic about runners as you, it will be hard to attract sign ups.

2) Collection of entitlements is seriously a hassle....and if you want them to be mailed to you it would come at an additional cost....seriously for the high registration costs they can't factor the cost of mailing these to the participants, like what the other organizers are doing?

    • uncle just want to share about cycling challege...like this one which starfinder and uncle is participating... so both of us registered for free 42km...and we received information for submission of results... So uncle started from 12am on 15 May according the Rules and Conditions... uncle completed within 24-hour...weather is very hot and humid...3 submissions...afternoon - next day before sunrise - and just this morning... submited and verified... ok, uncle got the eCert... so wait 5 July... cool right, FOC...just need 42KM (ride)... actually uncle "ride and run"... got this precious 42KM distance... upload for this one...today (16 May) is the last day uncle needs at least 1 FM distance to catch up to be #1... well uncle is now #1...lol... abuthen  Singapore is 13 hours ahead of Wisconsin, USA...so uncle got to be patient... just to be kiasu and extreme... uncle is preparing for a Half Marathon run tomorrow before 1pm...extremely extreme right? just for smugly reason to "how lian", why not? 😃 oh, almost forgot...something uncle checks daily... ok, past 350KM is a target for 700KM for May...mmm just need HM, FM x 1 or x2 or x3 to reach the Top of SCSM Virtual Club...aiya, looking forward...as uncle has posted previously...those who are handicap with the least number are the real ones..the rest are very "dubious" participants..just chase them for the fun...just catch them like Pokemon GO..pika pika... just need to zzZZZ, rest and recover...😃 We are in CB Paase 2 (Heightened Alert) from today. Wishes all to Stay Safe, Wear Mask and Stay Healthy. Avoid these places, as updated daily... https://ppvbc.github.io/
    • The finisher medal has arrived... There will be some who will be selected for this one... Good luck and best wishes. 👌
    • well, if this is the run forum, and this is local race, then we talk appropriately about run, and this thread is on run challege - infinite distance - according to any runner's capabilities - anything from 100m...to extremes. So, we focus on this "smugly". and if starfinder, you can talk about multi-event, then you should go to non-running event, and share about your non-run passionate activities...and share your joy and experiences like Biking - OCBC Cycle Singapore 2021... uncle believes starfinder and uncle are looking forward for this weekend...Free 42KM Cycling...today 15 May till 13 June... Registration is FOC and the 42k Virtual Cycling Challenge entitlement is Tote Bag and Medal.  beast is entitled to his diverse opinion about extreme running, and if he is able do attempt the accumulatives of just enough (spread over a period of 4 weeks), then that will be a "smug" distance as the outcome . Just give yourself an opportunity to participate with enthusiasm (which uncle has offered like Virtual Ekiden or Virtual Cross Country 10KM Relay), why not try try and experience yourself with the Challenge of Extremes. Some more, uncle is offering to all an opportunity as Team Captain. As for starfinder, if you want to experience, then sign-up for the challenge, even if you can do 5KM or lesser, why not, weekly for only 4 weeks, 25KM is tee (but you must commit to payment). So how much "smug" contribution can you do in 4 weeks, is what this challenge is all about...that is the reason why we share and discuss here encouragingly and motivating one another...do you want to try try 😀 Update, besides opening this opportunity for sgRunners, uncle has been invited to Join Team...a Team Captain after reading this forum thread, PM uncle at instagram and offered uncle to Join Team.. This team is made up of all types of non-runners of Age Group 40-60+....Hikers, Walkers, Cyclists...as long as your have that pair of Iron Legs that can carry you to the extremes, why not. The Team Captain told uncle, with uncle's Extreme contribution of 700KM, the team can aim for Silver or even Gold...lol...they considered uncle as "Legendary" member...sounded like they just "caught" a Pokemon extreme runner...😆 If you are interested, uncle can also open this Team Iron Legs registration for you to join together as a Team for Challenging Silver and Gold level...and a Team Plague with your name and celebrate as Team effort. Perhaps, Sandy is sharing and discussing if there is a Team from sgRunners...and uncle offered the Challenge to ALL...yes, sgRunners can have a Team to take up the Run Challenge... Anyone? Otherwise, you are also offered to Join Team Iron Legs with the Age Group 40+ and above. so startfinder, are you ready to bike OCBC Cycle for a month of fun Virtual Cycle... of course, uncle is extremely ready for the Challenge.. uncle will clock both Ride (submit for OCBC Cycle) and Run (Unlimited Distance Challenge)...kill 2 Events again with 1 Passion in both Cycling and Running...Maximum is 4 submissions...so 10.5 KM x 4 weekly submission also can 😄    Importantly, don't let Covid-19 variants stop you from pursuing you passion, ALL Races Are Cancelled. Agree with starfinder, pursue your interests besides run, so open a thread discussion with the "besides run" activity, why not? As always, uncle will take up any challenge because it is interesting, achievable and fun always.
    • Uncle @kohpapa passion is in running, so it isn't surprise he can clocked so much distances untiringly 😀 @beast also is correct. Nothing to compare. As said before, nowadays I am happy just to run 5 km or lesser, combined with some static exercises. A matter of personal preference really. Personally, I do not have 'run targets' this year. Don't have Uncle's ambitions 😅 But do have a goal to complete round-the-island cycling and perhaps get a kayak 1 star cert. Running isn't the only sports to enjoy (Uncle don't scold me for saying this in a runners forum). We may just do each different sports moderately. No need go to extremes but still can have the joys they bring!
    • latest: Uncle is registered Round Singapore Challenge... PM uncle if you are ready...😃
