[COMMENT] For someone who is generally not enamoured with virtual race to begin with, I have to say that this is possibly one of the worst virtual races (in term of entitlements) I have seen this year. I mean, who in his right mind would pay $13.90 for a reusable mask? :rolleyes:

A race which i enjoy when it was at the Changi Coastal Road area with four different terrains to run in... 

I remembered we argued about this before but ... what are the four terrains again?

I recalled it being only 3: Tarmac (Road), Trail and Sand.

Four terrains? Hmmmm......

Was it?

1. Road, trail, sand, footpath; or

2. Road, trail, sand, runway

🤔

2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition. For the first time – 21 km race route. First multi-terrain half-marathon locally

answer - taxiway, road, sand and trail

note: taxiway - a route along which an aircraft can taxi when moving to or from a runway

Almost 2 months ago before the end of 2019, uncle had an Ultra! Run:

Tampines JC (Tampine PC) >>> Loyang PCN >>> Changi Village >>>Changi Beach Park >>> Changi Coast Road >>>Tenah Merah Coast Road>>>ECP>>>Marina Barrage 

Remembrance: Sundown Ultramarathon Routes

The (Old) Changi Coast Road used to be an eventful route for many races - past editions of Sundown Marathon which then started from Changi Exhibition Centre. Also, most of the Bike and Run of Triathlons were held here.

                                                                      Changi-Exhibition-Centre.jpg

 

2011 REAL Run @ Changi Exhibition had its Road/Taxiway Run, meaning at the Start Point (Taxiway already).

Of course, the Taxiway did not imply Runway 1 or Runway 2 (Changi Terminal 1, 2 and 3)

Old Changi Coast Road, Aviation Park Road and Changi Exhibition Centre remembered. Fast forward...

                     widened51f487d5a19c015c.jpg

today, there is a New Tenah Merah Coast Beach..for windsurfing and kitesurfing....many had entered illegally to "State Land - You will be Arrested for Trespassing" warning boards, vehicles entered to the coastal beaches.

                                                  kitesurfinga8c3177ce0a22de9.jpg

Yes, if ever there is such a multi-terrain-ed route again: Run Trail (plenty of coastal routes with "State Land" boards), Run Sand (plenty), Run Road (Tenah Merah Coast Road - 14KM + stretch with no amenities), Run Taxiway 3 (at Future Terminal 5).

Meanwhile, uncle is happy "surfing" kite @ Aloha Tenah Merah Coast Beach.

Real Run has been YACVR-ed (Yet Another Converted Virtual Race)

*sarcastic mode on*

Pay $13.90 to run a distance of 5K, 15K or 24K and gets a reusable mask! What a bargain! 

*sarcastic mode off*

Honestly, why would anyone bother with this? I think it's possible to get a box of masks for that amount nowadays.

Same here. If they made a coloured medal out of that 24th edition event logo I would have signed up.

Wah bro beast, your threshold quite low. Coloured medal enough to tempt you for virtual run.

The Performance Series is also going virtual and even the stellar set of quality ELM medals is not enough to tempt me to sign up.

Of cos, my aversion  to virtual run is limited only be the fact that I do not have a GPS watch and do not like to run with my handphone. -_-

I'm not a local and don't know much about this race, but I really found this funny. 🤣
Yes, I think that can get you a box of masks... 🤣

Haha I quite like that event logo so yup I wouldn't mind paying a finisher medal if there is one.

I have been selectively joining a few virtual runs ever since the CB..... mainly for the design of the finishers (medals and shirts).... obviously it won't replicate the experience of joining a mass event run, but I do it mainly to get myself motivated to go out and do some runs...

I didn't know the medals for the Performance Series were ELM... I brush it off as the island theme doesn't really appeal me...I will give it a second thought whether to sign up or not... Thanks for the heads up haha... 

I have gotten used to carrying the handphone when I run so that if I see something scenic I can stop and take photos....I think it is a just a matter of getting used to it...

well, so it depends on individual if they would prefer to have the real run logo mask at the cost of $13. I am sure some will be fine with it.
