COVID-19 and its impact on Races

Recommended Posts

Have suggested to some large events that they consider changing their model for this time and do virtual runs / a league ladder to help inspire people to get active (not referring to those on here) :)

@RaijinFC there are a lot of positives from this pandemic. With the lockdowns - a new normal is occurring and am hoping capitalism evolves. We now see who really are the important "key people" in this world and that they should be paid better / pay no tax / have better benefits. The air smells better in the UK with the lack of planes / manufacturing and have spoken to many people who said they are sleeping better. I presume this is from the reduction of running around trying to do the social thing, keeping up with the latest gadget..... when the economy is kick started people should look to buy local to help their local companies...... anyway better not write too much cos get scolding for being off track.

Cannot run or cycle or any form of exercise with someone not in the same household... it's something essential so let's all run responsibly.

@KohPapa - received an email from Ironman - they are doing virtual events and selling t-shirts to complete your virtual event in!

Am grateful for the park 1 mile from my house. 25 hectares to run around in. Am grateful that once upon a time the park wardens kicked me out for dragging a tyre and only accepted me back in if I would run in the park where no one or few would be. I know so many quiet tracks. :)  Gonna be hard pushed to complete 14 more marathons after this is all over.

Don't be too sure, stricter measures may be coming soon for those who want to exercise outside....

UK warns of tougher social distancing measures...

Much the same like here soon...if social distancing measures are not complied...we surely will head to Wave 3 after "Circuit Breaker" when there is stopping of the Covid-19 spread.. now we are above 100 new cases .. .

Masks necessary only for those with respiratory symptoms

Stresses chief of Singapore's infectious diseases centre. The Straits Times (JAN 25, 2020)

Training with Masks in Runs

vs Running with Masks...

Should I Wear a Mask While Running?

(extract info - https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a32051593/wearing-a-mask-while-running/)

runnersworld.com-Should-I-Wear-a-Mask-Wh

The purpose of the mask is not to protect you, but to protect other people from you. If that is the goal, going out solo and avoiding people altogether is the best thing you can do.

In general, if you feel more comfortable running with cloth masks on, and think having it on will make others more comfortable, you probably should.¬†ūüė∑

We are in Circuit Breaker, not "Lockdown", with a Bill (tabled today in Parliament) on stricter measures...

Very much like in UK Lockdown situation...simply, we have not flattened the curve yet..

Source : CNA (cited for information on the latest situation on Circuit Breaker)

 

 

Most workplaces across Singapore have shut, as the country begins a "circuit breaker" period in the fight against COVID-19. The stricter safe distancing measures will be in place until May 4. Under the new rules, all workplaces -- except those providing essential services -- must shut for four weeks, and it means about three in four workers across the country will either work from home or stop working.The city's usually bustling financial hub has been brought to a standstill.

run.md.jpg

Social Distancing - "essential" Exercise of  walk/jog/run/bike but no swimming at Parks...near and close to your home...not to gather in groups...otherwise, just stay home with families or friends living together...this comes under the Social gatherings of any size in both private and public spaces prohibited new Bill aka COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill..

Enforcement - Warning/Advisory, Jail or Fine or Both.

new Bill - COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill for Events contracts, uncle shared...

Participants who have signed up races with postponement due to a "COVID-19 event" on or after Feb 1 under the new Bill:

OMG! no refund, no sign up. (No contractal agreement)

OMG! race cancel/postpone due to "Covid-19 event", deposits forfeited must be restored, otherwise, Law of Minister can assist in the matter. (Event-related contract)

Force majeure has been enforced in Sg on Covid-19.

I like the term "circuit breaker". Hopefully it helps to reduce panic buying.

Well, here, most of us don't go to grocery, marketplace or supermarket to buy food to cook. We buy food at our favourite food stalls, and eat out.

But, now till May 4, No Dining Out.

Members of the public are highly advised to comply with the elevated safe distancing measures imposed from now till May 4

(info extract - mothership.sg)

Importantly, whether you Exercise, Buy or Eat, Anyone meeting people with whom they do not live risks six months in prison, a fine of S$10,000 ($7,000) or both.

What can and can you not do during Singapore's Circuit Breaker (CB) period?

....Except Sg panic buy toilet paper and instant noodles for lockdown!!!

well, according to a UK news report

Coronavirus: Why people are panic buying toilet paper, according to a pandemic expert

(extract info - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/coronavirus-toilet-paper-panic-buying-covid-19-uk-australia-a9403351.html?jwsource=cl)

Coronavirus_-Why-people-are-panic-buying

It is a worldwide snowballing effect, that includes also in UK...added by social media (that includes exclusively sgRunners), panic buying of toilet paper is all about preparedness and safety given that Covid-19 is a global pandemic.

instant-noodles.jpg

same reason for instant noodles...in Sg, we have hawker food stalls

Best-Hawker-Centre.jpg

Dining out is a normal daily activity that is filled with passionate bonding with social closeness. Yes, we even use tissue papers (panic buying) so to "chop" or reserve seats for others and nobody in Sg question because we are a gracious society. We care and share Fine Dining including world-class michelin stars.

Abuthen, now in this CB (Circuit Breaker) with an emotion of disgust...but with a mute and silent gracious outburst...

Same reason for wearing masks¬†ūüė∑¬†during the CB period (again not an¬†emotion of disgust and definitely nor¬†a vulgar outburst and truely not very motivated to avoid not expressing both in a state of emotional disgust with¬†mute and silent gracious outburst)¬†

mask.jpg

CB lah! SGUnited

shop.jpg

btw, @Lady Ice, uncle needs to correct and not to nag or scold, Sg is in a state of CB, not lockdown like in UK and most parts of the world...otherwise, for saying or quoting "wrong info"...we kena "to be corrected" or¬†Lim Kopi¬†or Jalan Jalan to Court and be sued until one's pants or skirts dropped ...so don't play play...don't end with 3-in-1 (Fine or Jail or Court or¬†ALL)...because Sg is not lockdown¬†ūüĎĆ

Latest, CB lah! SGUnited to be implemented on public transport..

transport.md.jpg

you have been warned¬†- don't end up with 2-in-1 (Fine or Jail or ALL)...don't play play..ūüė∑

You wouldn't like it so much if I post some of the borderline NSFW memes that is circulating like wildfires since the term was coined. :crazysmile:

The term has just being a goldmine for sites who specialise in the humourous and satirical contents. 

I mean there is one floating around using what Min Chan CS said in parliament and warning that if the current circuit breaker measure does not work, then it could be extended. And what would it be call? Complete Circuit Breaker.:lol:

    • We can give you kudos ¬† No worries @kohpapa¬†- me too will exit as been spending way too much time on social media Seems like have been more like the doomsday person..... but it is certain we must all continue to respect social distancing, wear masks when in confined spaces (I know Sg is different) like public transport to protect others..... or we go for herd immunity. If you want to see what that is looking like, check out Brazil. It is very sad that Bolsonaro is happy to sacrifice¬†the poor and the indigenous people who will have no immunity (there was one tribe that was badly affected with the common cold). The indigenous people have been helping to protect the rain forest and illegal logging has increased in these times. For Bolsonaro, this means the virus can remove a people that was "blocking progression" and further exploitation of the Amazon.

    • Have tried running with a mask a little, but found it impedes taking in air if doing a hard run.¬† Have instead been giving people a 10 metre distance as well as running when there are fewer people outside (the dinner or lunch hour). Though do note we might have to get used to running with a mask. Have been attending some seminars with run organisers (NYC, Chicago, Berlin, Singapore, etc) around the world who are toying with the idea to ask¬†people to wear a mask in their events.... I'll try to write¬† a blog post to update every one of further thoughts.¬† Interesting that runnersworld have picked that up as well (thanks for the link @RaijinFJ)
