I participated in this year's 10 km run. A good departure from my usual venue or road races. The medal is nice and of good quality and the organizers provided good refreshments at end point at hort park. Highly recommended!

Most likely! The 10 km flag off time is just nice for me to reach there taking train from Bedok, though I may consider the 21 km too as I had not run Telok Blangah Hill. 

Frankly, this must be one of my most memorable race this year.

As a past participant of 2019, for sure I will put this race on the top priority on my calendar in 2020. 😊

uncle may return to "NUS Hill" and Southern Ridges for hilly workout more of sentimental reasons because uncle's hilly races started here from NUS Run, Salomon Tiong Bahru Trial (Urban) Run which covers part of Green Corridor, Telok Blangah Hill, and Passion Mount Faber Run..

Planning to do an Ultra! route..beyond 21km...

Maybe there will be Full Marathon distance for Ridge Runners 10th Anniversary Run 2022.

Did not proceed from Kent Ridge to NUS (due to a Covid-19 case at a remote site of NUS Campus). Exit from Kent Ridge Park to Pasir Panjang MRT. Had breakfast at Pasir Panjang Food Centre beside PP MRT.

Part of uncle's Trans Singapore Hilly Run

Exactly 3 months ago, uncle made this as a goal for 2020, and today, finally completed.

Tiong Bahru MRT >>> Kim Tian Road >>> Bukit Merah Road >> Lower Delta Road >>> Marang Trail (Beside HarbourFront MRT) >>> Mount Faber Hill >>> Henderson Waves >>> Telok Blangah Hill >>> Caonpy Walk >>> Alexandra Road>>> Hort Park >>> Kent Ridge Park CP B to CP A >>> Science Park I >>> Kent Ridge MRT >>> NUH >>> Lower Kent Ridge >>> NUS Sports Recrection (Track & Field) >>> NUS 10KM Route....

Wah, this should be easily half-marathon effort if include NUS Campus...considering hilly terrain all the way.

Abuthen, the NUS route is never be part of Ridge Runners 8th Anniversary Run 2020...

Putting sentimental reason aside, last run here at NUS was with wifey and daughter since both are NUS Alumni...for NUS Run 2013. Wonder if there will be NUS Run 2020?

    • It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation  of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably.  My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship.  That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won.  I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley slowed down to a crawl and that cost him a medal. In his estimation, even if Ashley has really slowed down, it did not cost him a medal because his finishing time was a bit off from the medal timing.  SA probably slighted because they were the one who nominated Ashley for the award and raised the stake with its 'problem kid' to cease and desist. Of cos, SRY was never going to just roll over. And his further comments prompted Ashley to sue him for defamation. And here we are.  It all seems a little superfluous to me but of cos I'm not the one who feels he's been defamed. 
    • I think only Ashley himself really know if he did really purposely slow down or not.  While I admire SRY on his achievement and humility even as a champion, there could be chance he may have observed wrongly especially from a distance. Then this whole issue becomes just a misunderstanding.
    • 2022...that is, if there is none of  "Covid-20" pandemic aka Covid-19 Wave 2...  🙄
    • Hey Uncle thank you - Have moved the century to 2022 Yeah keep your virtual runs clean and green
    • glad of @Lady Ice to reply...looks like this SCSM Virtual edition, shall miss... Reminder to All, please Keep the SCSM Race Clean and Green... of course, first thing to pop up is ...how is your 100th marathon attempt...given if this is not a Covid-19 year, you should have completed your maiden Century mark? Virtual Race, in uncle's opinion, can never replace the Real Run experience, because it is always a designated route, motivated by fellow runners who form camaraderie for a common objective...finishing a race with betterment of their PB... Virtual Race has no element of DNF, no judgement, no supervised "officiating" from a standard "Virtual Race" Committee to verify if your "gps-logged activity" data submitted as evidence...of course uncle has mentioned...how best to to verify if the "participant entity" is on walk, run, bike, drive, train or plane mode...or if the person is really "virtual" and not the real person... lots of virtual mega ultra distance...2020 KM....produces lots of virtual mega ultra runners...wha...that's cool...how then to complete 2020 KM race... Cumulative...wait uncle got 58km (run) weekly...calculator please...34 weeks till 2020...let's see there are 52 weeks per year...aiyoh, should have signed up 1 Jan 2020...but if 2020 KM can be done with plane...Roundtrip London - Singapore - London...and how many hours of flight time....zzZZZZZ...still got hope...when GREEN LANE special opening for London-SG border...10 slots uncle "chopped" BUY...20210KM...of course, 1 slot of 2021KM Virtual Race reserved specially for @Lady Ice to complete her Century Marathon milestone...actually a package for 48 FM... eagerly waiting for next 2021 KM Virtual Race...how much RM 150...S$50...complete with everything...SOLD OUT, limited 10,000 Slots available...due to overwhelming demand...another 10,000 Slots...repeat 4 Quarters of 2021...lol...event organiser laughing to the bank...with virtual manpower to support...apps platform is "bot" actually... Yes, SCSM platform is a Base Training Platform..and if the SCSM Virtual "Grand Finale" shall be based on the apps...uncle would just treat this as another Challenging Training Session...can be repeated again (say 3 times)...best of all, there is never DNF...because you decide for yourself if you should want to DNF yourself...mostly, with personal pride...NO WAY! Just like if Virtual Race (Challenge 2021KM)...DNF....NO WAY!
