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!

Glad that you enjoyed the event. Rejoining next year?

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.

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?

    • Challenge Events in SCSM Virtual Club are virtually recording on your distance with no ranking...so whether if you have more digital badges... but for the Leaderboard Ranking on Virtual Races, pace and timing is important...serious and competitive ones use them to "compete" virtually...locally and globally... actually, another way to go about this "algorithm" is to activate 2 apps...uncle got Runkeeper (Duration) and Adidas Running (Distance)... say in 30 min session (Runkeeper), will alert Uncle...to end Challenge....and 13KM (Adidas Running), will alert Uncle to end Race... only during the window of opportunity on Friday from 0500am - 2359... when both Challenges and VR Events clash...so it will be quite reasonable for BOTH to capture data from one another...like 30 min session challenge captured also in VR of say 5KM..assuming there MR25 runners...5-6KM in 30min...Challenge and VR digital badges.. Because VR Leaderboard with Ranking is more important than Challenges...everyone reserves the best effort on Weekend VR...and would surely do not wish to see "technical errors".. Because, this is the first time VR has a double up...and so Uncle first look at the algorithm "in order" so that the "competition" in the Leaderboard for VR is always fair and authentic...and with "reasonable" confidence...the 42-KM (VR 9) can be the possible "race format" for the "Grand Finale"...if there should be verified by uncle only by the end of the week...since planning of routes and 12-hour back-to-back sessions (4) have been planned...and with a Friday.. The other one of interest is if there should be SCSM 2020 Team of 6 Ekiden [Virtual Race] again, if the setup process what we Techie call the "staking" order...5KM first, then 5KM, 10KM, 5KM, 10KM and lastly 7.195KM...yes, we can have actually authentic Ekiden Teams for Leaderboard too... how about if there should be SCSM Ekiden Team Virtual Race... would you all be interested to form a sgRunners[2020] Virtual Team? 😀  
    • uncle interested to know if Run as One racing app is ready... this one really track the "designated" routes...  
    • uncle follows MyBestRuns...on their Best Upcoming Races... and Most Popular 200 Races for most updates...including events scheduled in 2021...
    • in case you want to know more... https://www.runsohfast.com/post/update-on-malik-aljunied-lawsuit-he-s-late-again Nomination by (National Sports Association) NSA, but final selection and decision is approved by SNOC... Just like why 2019 SEA GAMES Marathon... how did Gordon Lim and Loh Yuting (Men's) got Selected and represent Singapore...you mean Mr Ang Peng Siong (as VP - Training & Selection)...was clearly responsible for nominating them...sorry to say...Mr Ang Peng Siong was always in Swimming (Pool) and not in Running (Tracks)....and no worry Mr Ang will hate uncle for saying, remember...we are bros...sports fraternity...but different sporting activity only...😀 Just wish SOH can do his best lah! To be the First Local Marathoner to be in because he is the best qualified...winning a Medal is secondary...
    • I think MyBestRun should give more details like whether the run is holding a virtual edition instead or not... Personally I don't consider the event cancelled if it has turned into a virtual run... in the record books it will still be listed as the event being held, just not in the usual mass format...
