Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2020 - 5-6 Dec

Recommended Posts

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...😀

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...

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

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...

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'.

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...

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

For us casual runners, there is no need to run the same routes as the elites. Just plan designated route like what 'Run As One Singapore' is doing.

    • 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!
