Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2020 - 5-6 Dec

The credits only offsets $5 and still need to pay $20 for the medal and mask, which is indeed expensive.

Having said that, I will probably get the one with the highest distance challenge at the end of it.... Make it as a memorabilia for this virtual club thing.

Sounds like an idea... just dunno how long the max dist will go cause I can't imagine running 42km virtually... will look out for it too... and see how much it cost first... haaa

Love the idea of the gamification of SCSM. My imagination would like to see that once have completed our run, we can choose an avatar that can be added with the other runners and can watch oneself overtaking or being beaten by others..... need to be careful which avatar we choose:

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Speed-Play-Challenghave a great week ahead...

we have about more than 10 weeks to Dec 5...SCSM 2020 Virtual Club is actually a structured Base Training (15 weeks) to prepare you for Marathon...“Train, compete, and celebrate your achievements with a global community of fellow athletes no matter where you are.” very much like IRONMAN Virtual Club.

whether you will be running for a "full" or "half" marathon...in-person run or virtual race..Virtual Club (Base Training) Week... Weekend is for Hard Runs Race, while Weekdays are for Recovery/LSD Easy Runs, with Speed Play or for some, Cross-Training with Swim and Bike...SCSM (Ironman)... 

#OutdoYourself Challenge is BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions...long run #2 is to teach your body to function on when you are tired....when you glycogen depleted, most likely you have sore, legs. 

do realised the benefits of running with tired legs..and yes, always listen to your body...if you are not feeling well or too tired after long run #1...better rest and recovery..can always do that or accept another #OutdoYourself Challenge aka BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions the following week...

likely/probably on Dec 5...1 session of marathon/half marathon (real run for elites or those ranked high on leaderboard who want to challenge themselves)...or it could also be just like Virtual Weekend Race Dec 4 (Fri) 5am - Dec 6 (Sunday) 1159pm virtual grand finale... #OutdoYourself Challenge BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions marathon/half marathon/10km/5km...Social Distancing matters..

everyone is always SCSM 2020 finisher..sure lah, otherwise, who then wants to purchase a finisher bundle of $25 (with special limited freebies) plus $xx finisher tee and also Pic with background of SCSM 2020 superimposed...

Since SCSM 2020 has yet announced on the format of the grand finale Race...abuthen..give yourself a try at #OutdoYourself Challenge 2 : 2 sessions..20KM because that is actually Half Marathon distance..any 2 sessions within 4 days...

forgot to tell you...registration is over...🙄.. but will come back this week...stay tuned...

so moving forward to VR4 Weekend (Hard)...do look out for #OutdoYourself 100Plus Challenge 3...BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions for Week 5...

uncle wouldn't be surprise...in coming weeks...BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions of 32KM...

your responsibility is to find a route of more than 3-5-10-15-17km..and of course, in recent days...ECP is sizzling hot..see lots of determined and motivated Virtual Runners...pace very fast as though they are racing against themselves...

everyone is geared up for scsm 2020...are you?...just join and participate and be ready for the grand finale SCSM 2020...😀

154852b95b46a36b3e.jpg

OMG.. uncle had ran just months ago...Pandan Reservoir...watch the Sun..the sandy track (loop is 6km)..and yes, someone did say...sandflies...

BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS: 2 sessions of 20KM...5km (Session 1 or 2) and 15km (Session 1 or 2)...to be completed from Friday (5am) to Sunday (1159pm)...this is a half-Marathon distance...are you ready for the Weekend VR4 Challenge?

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Coached-Training-Ti

 

BACK-TO-BACK LONG RUNS, run longer when you are tired preceding a previous run...make sure you have acquired a "shorter with sustainable recovery" plan with proper rest, nutrition and hydration, may be a challenging (intimidating) for most..not recommended for those who had never UltraRun Training or Race before...

update, a week from now...and if you still thinking about attempting 8Km or 10Km Challenge for the Weekdays...

8km: Run Your Favourite Route!

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Community-Challenge

 

10km: Finish Line Moment...capture your moments..

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Sponsored-by-page-0

 

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Sponsored-by-page-0

 

app.sgmarathonvc.com-Sponsored-by-page-0actually, the prizes are not the reason, it is the participation of challenging yourself...while you are running in your favourite route..why not "register"...or when finishing your final 10km of LSD...why not "register"...for next week Monday (0001) to Friday (2359)...

free to "register", no obligation to purchase merchandize and finisher bundles (anyway, uncle no interested, no $$$)...Keep fit, Stay strong, Stay healthy, Stay motivated...some more can "view" what are others doing in the SCSM Virtual Club community...your achievement can be filtered in various age categories (age groups)...

have fun...we are entering...5KM/15KM/8KM/10KM phase of SCSM 2020...and if uncle were to go just for UltraRun training (back-to-back runs)...38km will have accumulated by next Friday just simply "register" for 4 sessions... 😀

what if...SCSM 2020 VR (grand finale) follows...2020 Virtual London Marathon format...in Dec 5 only (TBA)

from information from the only 2020 WMM that has both Run for Elites-only and Virtual Race for Non-Elites..

runnersworld.com-You-can-now-sign-up-to-

 

runnersworld.com-You-can-now-sign-up-to-

if registration fees are like SGD 20 for locals, and SGD 25 for overseas...2020 SCSM VR (grand finale)...an event that is supported and subsidised by the Authority...for SGUnited...surely a charity/donation drive that comes with run...

it all depends on...

are you an elite or invited to run in a route because you have been top in the leaderboard from VR01-15...3KM/5KM/10KM/12KM...

or are you a non-elite?...then you can choose your "fovourite route" or "anywhere"...treadmill or home...

you can always like uncle...while ...this is vacuum-cleaning around the house...

vacuum.jpg

just put a phone with the app on it...and let it "run" while cleaning your home for hours...

you are SCSM "finale" VR winner...Quarter/Half/Full Marathon...

as though  "like running in a Boston Marathon"...yawn....zZZZZZ..Sleep Can Wait... 😀

very creative... hopefully they dun based on the challenges or races to decide who are the elites or runners eligible to run in their dedicated routes... some of the challenges/races i missed cause i ran longer than the required distance by 1-2km... hahah...

For SCSM finale, I hope they will have designated routes to run instead of running our 'favourite routes' or 'anywhere'. It will feel 'more like a race'.

true.... i have yet to participate in the other race that has this format... i am unsure if i will feel "like a race" when it is at a dedicated route but at anytime of the day... this would still mean i might be running alone too... hahahh

    • Standard Chartered Bank..renewed title sponsorship with Singapore Marathon until 2023...    
    • SRY who has a stake on future selection for 2021 SEA GAMES...in his FB..commented...   so ST Virtual Run finisher 175KM...can be called as Ultra National Athlete...lol  eat more🍿...who shall be the new SA Management Committee on 25 September...
    • @beast, uncle has tried every reason to stick on SCSM 2020 Virtual Club platform with progressive Base Training Plan towards the "grand finale" edition... on the the hope, if there should be a designated route , say for only "invited" participants... at SCSM Virtual Club there is an accumulating "challenging distance" activities with leaderboard for Points...     as well as VR Race categories for leading "VR Runners" SCSM VR Club format...Distance Activities (Challenge) in Points and Race (Pace) with Ranking... in uncle's opinion, the selection criteria may say "invited participants" depends on how much have your training activity and how ready are you for the "grand finale" via your pace and ranking...which is monitored and recording in the 15 Weeks (VR #01 - #15)...against all others in the Community who are sharing in the Virtual Club... regarding on the issue of apps...pretty good...tested and proven to be reliable..SCSM (Ironman) standard...no comments...uncle uses Runkeeper..GPS Only Locator...Distance option only... uncle has not registered with a fee, because it is FOC..so what's the medal quality, finisher tee consideration...only when the "grand finale" edition is announced...so you want VR #01-15 finisher bundles or finisher tees...it is your discretion..there is no obligation... importantly is...between now to the actual day of "Race" day...whether it is VR or/and Run for Elites, or/and Selected Participants Only...say up to 250, or 500, or 1,000, 5,000..."selectively" like in recent Japan Marathons "elite run clubs"...or  "lottery" like in Taipei Marathon recently announcement... if decision to run on a "designated" route...announcement should be publicly in both social and print media...supported by MOH (safe distancing measures plan and approved), Sports Singapore (approval on mess event managment plan), Local Authority...with LTA/TP...agreed on Road Closures... event if the grand finale has a VR, would it be 1 session or Challenges which are 1-2 sessions..based on past weeks...why not Train for the SCSM 2020 format...and you would know, if given the format in 15 weeks...surely...no problem, it is achievable...1 session or up to 2 to 3 sessions accumulatively... something very unique about SCSM 2020 format... say if you should complete 21km in the future for 1 session...and if you should exceed 1km more beyond the 21km...SCSM 2020 had reminded to participants...please do not "not exceeded"...otherwise..." yes, don't overchong the distance.. see, even uncle dare not chong the 20km challenge...15.13 + 5.85...is 20.98 KM...so can practice for the VR which is stricter on "not exceeded" btw, the Challenge can be repeated..max is 3... attempts...so uncle can still chong 3 x 20KM for 60KM for this challenge as this one ends today...2359..lol overall response so far... Hope this helps! VR (weekends) and Challenge (weekdays)..SCSM 2020 format...this one is different from the other virtual runs...😀 Note: if the 4-5-6 Dec is considered as SCSM 2020 weekend...then the VR (Grand Finale) should have maintained the same format of  VR #01 - #15..and so everyone, are you ready for it? 5km/10km/21km/42km maybe Kids Dash (VR-Kids)...Run Any Place, Run Anytime, Run Global..Friday (5am) to Sunday (1159pm)? "Augmented" V-Reality... TBA...official SCSM 2020 only!
    • I am also keen to know what will be the plan for SCSM 2020 "finale"... My guess is for safety concerns, we will likely have both the option of running a designated/ recommended route or our own route to run on the first weekend of December, to prevent crowds from forming at the designated/recommended... But things are definitely looking for the better here, so maybe there is a very slight chance that larger groups are allowed before December, and staggered timings in a designated route is permissible. This will at least give runners a closer sense of running an actual race.    Actually you are given 12 days to complete the 58KM....  Mon to Fri - 2 x 10km - 20km in 5 days Sat to Sun - 5 + 15km - 20km in 2 days Mon to Fri - 8 + 10km - 18km in 5 days For ST VR 2020, you are given 60 days to complete 175km... means every week you need to clock 21km... that is certainly do-able... The main issue is ST VR is insistent on using the MOVE app, which is causing a lot of issues for runners as it a lousy tracking app that cannot be sync with most of the better running apps...You will probably need to open both the apps if you want to clock for both SCSM and ST VR mileage in a single run...
    • So far, we know the pattern >>>>> Weekend VR #01-#05 : Single Race (Pace/Hard Run) Sessions of X KM and Y KM respectively, for example this week will be 5km and 15km Challenges Offered on WeekDays: Single or Multiple Sessions (Easy/Relax Run)    gaining mileage in progression...weekly.. Say, uncle just completed last week (Friday 2359 hours)...20KM Challenge... Starting soon... VR5 of 5KM and 15KM...another 20KM contimuing next Weekdays...8KM "Preferred Route" and 10KM "Finishing Line"...another 18km... 20km + 20km + 18km...wah 58KM in 8 days...both Pace (Hard Run) and Relax (Fun)... another non-topic discussion...say if uncle were to be interested this one... free and easy...no restriction unlike in SCSM VR or Challenge Compliance 1 or 2 Session-only  175KM Category...if uncle can use SCSM Virtual Club (training plan)...with proper rest and recovery... about 3-4 weeks...Oct 19 to Nov 19 is achievable... so should uncle sign up ST VR 2020 for 175KM?... we are only at VR 5 or Week 5...still have 10 more to go...besides register to run FOC for SCSM 2020...can test and tryout if this is possible...abuthen..what's the next weekly progressive mileage next week Week 6? stay tuned...update next week... enjoy your weekend (and next week weekdays)... uncle busy gunning for 58KM in 8 Days..
