Good to 'see' everyone here again! I was not expecting any SCM run this year bt ehem, seems like it might happen in whichever format.... Bt seriously, it is hard to clock in a full marathon based on OTOT manz. E psychological barrier and temptation to drop off is higher. And ya, have nt been running religiously due to covid. Guess it is harder to kickstart e engine until more details are revealed

i guess the main reason for the virtual series is to kickstart our engine so that when they announce for the Dec actual race, all of us are pumped up and ready... i do agree that running the Full distance solo OTOT is quite daunting, probably have to find a small group of frens (less than 5 members) with similar pace to run together...

Not sure if I am being a "mountain turtle", but I just realized that once you linked your running app to the virtual club platform, it is smart enough to know which of your runs that you have completed corresponds to the completion of the the respective challenges. You do not need to manually link your completed runs to the fulfillment of the respective challenges.

Credits alone cannot purchase any merchandise, would need to top up with cash....🤑

As i suspected.  I have not signed up.  Not really interested in these, unless the credits can go towards defraying the cost of the actual race.  Will wait for further announcement on the format of the actual race.

A big event has been divided into multiple small virtual events with individual medals on a not-so-cheap price... Will think twice to pay SGD25 for a 3/5km virtual run medal... 😶

wish the SCSM 2020 can be just likedat...spare us from some lame VR1, Standard Chartered 1 and Speed Up Challenge 1: Farleks... surely follow-up with more versions to come...2,3,4 to infinity...and pump more $$ on limited merchandise (shipping within 30-day) for virtual finishers...

if SCSM 2020 is an Elite-only race, this should be more or less same pattern in 3 months....however, subjected to local "Covid-19 measures" including how to allow "foreign" participants arrive safely and be safe...how many considered is as max number of persions/group...currently is 5...already 50 has been "broadcasted" for off-site soon...shall update...from official source only...

ok, let us see where are we now, moving forward, where are we going to be...and where will we be on 5/12/2020...

scsm-2.jpg

"registration"...free to join - training in 15 virtual races with challenges...join lah...

week 1 race already announced, now in progress...with 15 races (virtual training platform) to gear up for the "grand finale"...

"registration"... pay for "grand finale"...

on Dec 5...possibly participants running on "treadmill" or "clocking their runs outdoor" to be announced....surely kids/family/social friends register to join...community run... 

app with an "Augmented Reality course through the heart of Singapore"...audio effect and visual spectacular...probably...streamed...to be announced...

"signature finisher" - probably digital label...delivery of tee and medal (limited edition)...complete with the finisher photo...probably send by post (unless delivered to residence with fee)....internationally also....

okie...we register to pay for technology apps with VR features...finisher merchandise with photo...etc...elites surely have to come for Olympic 2021 qualification and prize money....

surely got early bird registration...past participants' discount...finisher tee and medal (quality assurance)...bottomline is how much (cutting off expenses/cost on virual manpower/exhibition event)...no road to be closed (unless there is an Elite-run which has nothing to do with participants)...anywhere already hinted...running on open streets are not likely...probably/maybe/depending...

surely must also involve the local authority support...subsidy for the biggest Singapore Virtual Race for 2020...run for "Covid-19 frontline"...run for SGUnited!...TV broadcasting/Online Streaming...zoom with "50,000" strong....🙄

PS: for those planning to get married on Dec 5, 2020....place check for Traffic Police advisory on Road Closures....but since 2020...we have not heard or seen of any "Road Closures" due to Covid-19 pandemic....more of Covid-19 pandemic has closed all local/international routes, including Person-to-Person contact...(social distancing) 

stay tune for updates....uncle shall MIA until "Grand Finale" announcement...working/earning and making money are essentials...Stay Healthy, Stay Active, Stay Running are also essnetials...bye

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.
