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:

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...

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... 😀

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

    • interestingly, uncle has been virtual races 5K/10K/HM/FM since Nov 2020... and perhaps give all some tips on this one 21KM or HM... 1) Multiple Submissions - Virtual "Challenges", meaning there is no need to submit One Session Virtual Race. In some of FM events especially WMM events, 1-day 1-session no Pause no Stop. There is no need for this 2XU run. 2) Since there is no need for 1-session 1-submission, means if up to maximum 6... 3-km - 5 km run is reasonably per session. 3) Even for those who want to attempt the 1-session 1-submission, uncle would break into 5km, 7km, 6km, 3km loop...and if necessary, use your HOME as base for anything "Toilet Break", "Hydration" and even "Nutrition" (like for FM) as well as Change of Gears such as shoes, even uncle needs to take a cool shower under extreme hot weather. Good to change to dry clothing or socks. As long as your route is within Home Based, you can always get emergency help with Family/Friends as a standby. Important to have them informed which are the likely routes. As for uncle, 5K/10K/HM/FM is the same 10KM route, just "U" turns just for 5KM, 7KM, 6KM, 3KM. No need ECP. No need Hills. Just make sure, there should not be much interruptions of traffic. Of course, uncle's best time is after 1am - 7am (Sundown timing). 4) Weather is very unpredictable, you don't want to get caught with starting a 10km route in a "thundery storm" condition...uncle had encountered several times...bear with the strong wind and heavy rain water bursting to your face, how about your shoes soles come out...then carry your shoes back to Home-based... change to a backup pair of shoes, change of wet clothing, wet socks...move on...that will be FM when uncle has to do 1-session 1-submission. 5) Toilet break - for both "pee" and "brownies time"...sometimes it is unfortunate, when you least expected...toilets are out-of-order...how about when "brownies" already unbearable that the only way is to "Save the Earth" - release to the Nature. Yes, today is Earth Day...uncle happy to see blooming of flowers where uncle once released "brownies" because uncle really cannot "tahan"...no bad for "Save the Earth"...make sure you leave no evidence of your presence such as CCTV nearby. Scoop up after done, uncle noticed there is no sign for "human poo" so uncle just "run" road.. means run fast fast lah and don't get caught. Again, uncle's best time is after 1am - 7am (Sundown timing)...so every living beings all zzzZZZZ. Importantly, Pink Apple has responded to feedback that instead on 1-session submission, why not up allowing up to Maximum 6. As a good start for all who has never had any Virtual Run, you just need to submit any evidence of "visual" timings up to Maximum 6. Good luck everyone, virtual challenges or race can be fun. Like uncle's 1-time 1-submission...   uncle had 3 finisher medals in 1...cool right?  
    • For long virtual runs, just treat the petrol kiosks, vending machines, mama shops as the "virtual" water stations. The thing here is to plan the route smartly so that one can easily gain access to these "virtual" water stations. Although virtual runs allow one to run "anywhere", one needs to be smart about where they run too.
    • Good call by Pink Apple to extend to multi submission instead of only one.  Personally I think people who sign up for 21km mostly can finish 21km at one go. However, for those who are not used to running virtual runs that come with self-supported hydration, some period must be given for such runners to plan and adjust themselves to get used to running the entire 21km on their own. Before the CB/lockdown period, I used to think that doing self-supported runs is challenging and not easy to do, but the CB/lockdown period allowed me to explore and adjust myself to completing virtual runs around my neighbourhood. So speaking from personal experience, it is do-able and train-able, just that most runners need to go through an adjustment period/phase, and it is probably unreasonable for Pink Apple to ask runners to complete their 21km virtually at one go and giving such short notice to prepare for it.
    • uncle who had made previous posts on this event, and with the following updates made... Kudo credited : International runners from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia will be entitled for free mail delivery service. The shortfall : There will be those who sign-up for the Virtual Run in 2021 who will get discount for the next physical run...and many new entrants are from both Local and Overseas for the next physical run... Yes, Pink Apple has the financial means because they have built up "loyalty" in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. For those who have signed up, enjoy up to maximum of 6 submissions...initially Virtual Race [1 submission] which has become Virtual Challenge [multiple submissions]... submissions start from April 26...according to updates from FB. Congratulations on your finisher entitlements and a free entry for the next physical run. 😃 The next physical run will be a new normal of future races with Covid-19 Safe Event Management. Again when that happens, we still don't know.    
    • Yeah. I also think allowing 6 runs is over-generous. A more reasonable number would be 4. But I suppose by allowing up to 6, it is still up to the individual how he want to challenge himself.  Pink Apple is just kicking the can down the road.  Imagine giving the 10,000+ runners who registered in 2019/2020 a free entry to the next physical run. That's easily a few hundred K of lost revenue (even if only half take up the offer) How would they make up for the shortfall? Maybe they will charge $50 for a 5K, $75 for 10K and $100 for the HM.
