OhMyGod, 

COVID-19 is no play play, better be safe than sorry. Run alone or with a few friend is ok. 

Use this time to upgrade your running techniques/ skills.

Singapore is working 'round the clock' to find coronavirus cases. Lying about where you've been can result in 6 months of jail or a fine of up to $10,000.

Got lah! RunningGuild races and some tri/bi/VM proceeded as plan. Safari Zoo Run Forest Force 50 seems to be going ahead. 

You mentioned this same thing in another thread but I did not reply to your comments then. 

Then you mentioned this again in this thread is unforgivable when I had already summarised in the 1st post of this thread of the summary of the races postponed/cancelled AND races that proceeded as planned.

OhMyGod,

World Athletics Half Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020 has been postponed

(info - mybestruns.com)

mybestruns.jpg

In every event that has Elites' participation such as World Athletics or WMM, when we sign up, we are the recreational runners who are able to participate alongside elite competitors. Cancellation of such events would mean "for Elites only".

It will be interesting that now as recreational runners who paid entry fee, is there a "refund" policy or insurance policy such as injury or medical expenses suffered during race to be compensated by race organisers? For those who are overseas recreational runners who paid for travel, accommodations and others, is there a "refund" policy or travel insurance policy in the event the race is postponed or cancelled.

One thing for sure, future race fee will definitely factor "administrative and logistics" costs on what if the race is postponed or cancelled  because of "xyz" factors. 

OhMyGod, what race should I signup? No refund, No sign up. We are becoming very selective consumer as "recreational runner".

Let this be a strong reminder to sub-standard race organisers who failed to delight or to provide a minimum satisfactory "race experience" for recreational runners : No good review, No refund (cancellation, postponement or bad experience), No sign up.

This will be challenging mission for Sports Event Management to reflect upon their actions on post COVID-19 and its impact on future Races.

I am watching this event with interest. If nothing happens 2-3 weeks after the event, that is, no new infections that can be traced from the event itself (and not elsewhere), then that would be good. If a sudden outbreak comes from this, then I'm pretty sure that a lot of race organizers around the world will also be cancelling and say: "See? I told you so!"

Under these circumstances, I'm of the opinion that the spectators and well wishers should just be asked to stay home. As a runner, of course, the cheering and support are highly appreciated. I don't want to hurt their feelings of course, since they mean well, but these are difficult times and more precautions must be taken.

In addition to the usual sports gels you tuck into your waistband, you now have to have a small bottle of hand sanitizer too... Oh boy. Imagine if you're so tired already and you mistakenly sip the alcogel instead?!?!? 😅
