Running industry walloped by COVID-19, and it may take years to recover

Running as a solitary fitness or mental healthy pursuit is one thing, but for many runners, the social aspect of the sport comes out in racing. Races are community celebrations of the running lifestyle. That part of the sport has been dealt a devastating blow, and officials fear it could take years to recover.


The Calgary Marathon race weekend is going virtual for 2020

After completion, runners upload their results to the RunKeeper app, where race leaderboards will be compiled. Anyone who had already registered for the race weekend and doesn’t want to compete in the virtual event has the option to defer their run until the 2021, 2022 or 2023 events.

i wonder if this pandemic will create a new way of racing in the future races... such as capping the number of runners, or even ensuring safe distancing at the start line.... 

I hope not. If the organizers cap the number of runners to much lesser, they may charge higher registration fees.

And though they can create multiple start waves, there is simply no way to maintain safe distance once into the race itself.

Reflection from : Sundown Marathon Singapore (cancelled with Full Refund and Transfer of Slot to 2021)

reflect.jpg

Reflection from: Marina Run (Cancelled with Virtual Run only)

reflect1.jpg

travel.jpg

Before Covid, flying was increasing joy.
But after Covid, we should see a reduction in flying for the near term.

Covid-19 heralds changes in human behavior and habits - Social Distancing.

The Airline Industry foresees a "new normal"...Safe Distancing on board measures mean...higher ticket price.

Pay less (mass events) in the past, may be Pay more (safe distancing) in the future.
Why Pay for just Elite-only Race, when you can Pay for Virtual Race or Free.

Run free or Pay to Run are just so different.

Running as a solitary fitness or mental healthy pursuit is one thing, but for many runners, the social aspect of the sport comes out in racing. Races are community celebrations of the running lifestyle. That part of the sport has been dealt a devastating blow, and officials fear it could take years to recover.

Additional costs incurred by public transport operators due to COVID-19 not 'adequately covered' by fares: Khaw Boon Wan

(CNA News)

Additional costs incurred by public transport operators because of the COVID-19 outbreak are not "adequately covered" by current fares and will "eventually have to be borne by operators and taxpayers", said Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan on Tuesday (May 5).

In a written reply to a parliamentary question by Nominated MP Walter Theseira - who had asked about the impact of safe distancing on public transport services - Mr Khaw said that ridership and fare revenues have plunged while expenses have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Are you looking forward to Races after CB SG (June 1)? OMG! no cheap, no sign-up. Only time will tell what changes will be happening or forthcoming.

Social activities, other than the competition itself,  should be canceled.

 

This applies closely to the World Athletics which shall make their announcement soon on Run Events Post-Covid-19. We shall expect any mess run events (especially SCSM 2020) to follow strict measures on Prevention Outbreak Guidelines as recommended by IOC and WHO.

COVID-19: SafeEntry digital check-in system deployed to more than 16,000 venues

(CNA News)

The SafeEntry digital check-in system, which logs employees' and visitors' entry into businesses to facilitate contact tracing, has been deployed to more than 16,000 venues to date, said the Ministry of Health and Smart Nation and Digital Government Office in a joint release on Saturday (May 9). 

Developed by the Government Technology Agency, SafeEntry requires visitors to scan their identification card so that the system can record their arrival and departure times. The system reduces the manual effort needed by businesses to track visitor movements and eases crowds at entry points, according to the SafeEntry website.

SARS, You get it, you know it. Constant high fever.

COVID 19 is asymmetric spread...those who don't think they have it, carry it around for 2 weeks, infect everybody.. last stage when they get it, they technically only has 2 weeks of life remained if left untreated.

Don't play play....hack robot...it can fight back after Covid-19 Challenges...

 

 


A moment of silence for all those who thought this was an experiment with real robot...actually..

    • wow...aunty @Lady Ice... sure...just like 2020 London Marathon Virtual Race...replayed...24-hour... 5 dec (sat)..shall start 5am Local Time...complete 42.2km..like normal...since uncle got report to work on 7 dec (monday) 3 miles is about 5KM...which is fine...next 1 KM uncle just pick litter..since Pit Stop (hydration and nutrition) is planned for every 6km...preferred route...PCN along Kallang River...hopefully will see otters feasting on fishes... how about the rest?
    • Uncle - Aunty make one for you that I intend to do on the 6th Dec: 26 miles in 24 -26 hours. If 24 hours - do 3 miles for the first hour and then one mile an hour thereafter. - For each mile you must plant a tree or a shrub of some sort to highlight the importance of vegetation in our world for our lungs and to negate the effects of pollution - During each mile - you can litter pick to clean the mile. - Thereafter - repair something, repurpose something, renew something.... ya know Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Repurpose Hope more of you will join me for this special event for our finale for the Covid year  
    • just to get consensus from all: 1) are you excited, so-so, or disappointed by the SCSM 2020 Grand Finale Week announcement? 2) what have you sign-up for and are you going to pay for the Challenge Bundle? to start off, uncle is very disappointed there is no FM. uncle signs up 21KM + 10KM [SCSM Grand Finale VR Double Up Challenge] just for good Stay Strong, Stay Healthy Fun... Not paying for this one... The Weekly SCSM Virtual Club VR and Challenge Events have kept uncle prepared and ready for any Ultra Distance VR events... uncle going for this one tommorrow...LAST one of the WMM 2020 Virtual Race... "Run for Medal (Marathon) " - There is no time limit. However, runners must complete the full 26.2-mile distance in a single run activity during one calendar day and upload the activity to Strava.  Because of Covid-19 Pandemic when ALL Races have been cancelled, and there is no Local Virtual Races (Challenges) that has exceeded beyond Half-marathon distance, the closest being 2020 STVR 17.5KM which ended on 23 Oct. Besides, SCSM Virtual Club which started 10 weeks ago with VR (weekends) and Challenges (weekday), these sessions are not FM-ready. Note: Kid's Virtual Races also completed (1.5KM and 3KM) You need at least 2 months of Preparation and Progressive Runs both in Distance and Duration. Last week VR 9 Double-Up Challenge...we completed 13KM + 8KM = 21KM VR Double-up with 2 Sessions. Perhaps, uncle provides this info...how then should we prepare for Marathon Virtual Race... Participant can opt for 50% discount on online Coaching Essentials to prepare for Marathon...  Enough said, uncle better prepare for tomorrow with the FM Virtual Run with Medal which uncle wants for 2020...have a great weekend! 😃
    • SCSM VR Competition Race Honorably....   https://oly-one-product.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/SCSM/SCSM+VR+Race+Rules+Final.pdf  
    • Hey Thanks @RaijinFJ - really excellent really busy. Just making sure the virtual events round the world have my input LOL..... so have been talking to the organisers and added my 2 cents to how the virtualisations can be made better. Looking forward to see how the AR will work for SCSM.  At the same time as working am trying to circumvent the potential destruction of the Clementi Forest in Singapore to have greater consideration (https://mothership.sg/2020/10/clementi-forest/) Understand about the towns in the forest but destroying an entire forest to "create" a forest will mean the death of millions of animal lives in that section of untouched forest in Singapore and a loss of species. Am pretty upset that the govt has not protected it. Otherwise how can we say to Brazil and Indonesia they must protect their forests? Singapore says they will plant a million trees, but planting a million trees and destroying a forest.... yah yah I know need housing for an expanding population but there are other places.....like on the Green Corridor as they have already destroyed parts of the forest there to make it look more like a cultivated garden. Also have got involved with local government in the UK to develop proper cycling and walking infrastructure. So have learned a lot. Have been trying to share that knowledge with LTA that they need to make some tweaks to their plans and ensure they consider that bicycles should be treated as vehicles and not as pedestrians otherwise those shiny cycling paths are useless if cyclist have to stop at every minor road as well as try to maneuver right angle paths!  Already tested some out last year. Needs more tweaking.  Then of course there is leading a couple of eco-groups within the community. Haize - need to do less and get more people taking responsibility. Let's run SCSM
