RUN AS ONE SPORE (23 OCT - 01 NOV 2020)

Recommended Posts

Was there any official notification of the cancellation? It is strange that the website was just suddenly taken down and all the posts removed from their Facebook page. I was interested despite the higher cost as they tried to make it more interactive than other virtual races

Wah details of event and registration are all taken down. Bad omen.

Managed to dodge a bullet with the advise of seniors here against registration of events this year in view of COVID situation. The beauty of this forum here. Runners helping runners. Thanks.

Alright~~~

I just figured out that nothing changed that I suspected above. The only thing changed is this race has been RENAMED as "Run As One Singapore"....  https://www.runasonesg.com/

No more CSC Run By The Bay...

wow..... that is good information.... and quite a sudden change, must be a sudden decision... so this means the medal and singlet/tee will be renamed as well... no more streak race?? hahah...

As mentioned at website, is more closer towards the event date. So probably you have to take note next week.

not surprise, because they claim this race is endorsed by SportSG/ActiveSG...and a CSC vendor for sports (Civil Service Club Race provider for 2020)

there must be whistle-blowers...maybe they read sgRunners...saw uncle's concerns that was highlighted at SCSM 2020 forum thread..."cluster" issues with designated ruotes...how can...

uncle has officiated in MetaSport events under SG Triathlon sanctioned races in the past....MetaSport mostly expat management with local vounteer administration...maybe they don't know about local rules, regulations and guidelines on Covid-19 measures...

just as a matter of interest...MetaSport events carried on inspite of early Covid-19 days when all races cancelled because of Covid-19...

until local authority stepped in...then reacted...with further measures...

in COVID-19 and its impact on Races forum thread...uncle recorded...

sounded familiar situation...again...

otherwise, if there is no Authority to step in...don't be surprise..this event will carry on as usual...and hope that no one will be responsibile...because.."sorry, we didn't know of cluster could happen"...it will be too late already...

I think it is no brainer that crowds will be forming... that is already my (and I am sure many as well) concern back in August if you scroll the posts on page 1...

Metasports can't be that dense not to know that... most likely they are just trying their luck with the authorities and hope approval can be granted without having them to do the extra work of split timings.

well said...

side track...interesting note..

interest.jpg

was once known as...CSCRun_full_color--1024x539.png

 

their facebook was updated till August 10, and then...no updates...

wonder if it was cancelled or become a Virtual Race...because there was no sponsor by CSC for this event.."Run as One Singapore"... it has nothing to do with "CSC Run By the Bay"..right?

I think it is no brainer ....23 Oct - 1 Nov...

Instructions to choose your running slot...

I think it is no brainer....choose slots even if at 2400 (midnight)...wonder if there are organiser's "volunteers" available to prevent " crowd clustering"....because the event is organised with designated routes, and will be held responsible...if there is a Super Covid-19 Spreader...who could be a non-participant public who happened to be present there...joined in for the sake of sheer fun...

Always thought that mass event is to be avoided if possible...and this event is really a mass event "24-hour" 23 Oct - 1 Nov with hourly 30 person...hope that the public is announced to avoid the designated routes (just like as there will be closures of venue due to Run)...

maybe can get away with this one...just announced...

but is running (exercise) event a key life event? 🙄

metaSports...Ironman Asia...very like MultiSports Event organisers...

ceremonial protocol at Finishing Point...they want to hi-5 and cheer and always give out medals in-person...

but now is Covid-19 pandemic... 

virtual run is to post or contact-less delivery...of medals..

I think it is no brainer...why is it necessary to have "contact"ful between participants and volunteers...in fact, there shouldn't have any involvement of volunteers simply...if there were none of the designated routes as part of the race..

the Authority must show to the public (in the event of "cluster"), was there a Race Course Plan which lay out "measures of safe and social distancing"...because the public has the right to use the venue...any time...any day...

just like when you were to run (exercise) were at PCN or NP... there was no right of race organiser representing participants runners (exercise) to keep public away, because, public area is for public use, not for mass event race?...unless there was a permit issued by the Authority : closure due to permit like NP or LTA...

so far, any issued, by whom?

first the name change, colour orange doesn't change...more like orange tee can print new event...so are the entitlements...

next CSC is no longer there, the race FB ends in August with no announcement...speculation or what...cancel or postpone don't know...

suddenly this one has make many people puzzled...got this or not...volunteers...got designated routes - follow clockwise or counter-clockwise...now got timeslots 24 hour limit to 30...hourly...

truely, the run community is already has so many ???, bet that the public at large will be as blur as sotong to see...why on their favourite weekdays or weekends..23 Oct - 1 Nov ...runners (exercise) all never wear mask so many...by the hours...gather for in-person mass event...phase 3 CB approved by whom?

Reading between the lines, I am guessing that Metasports decides to go ahead with this event using the template from the CSC run and modify things a bit here and there and you have a new event. 

Quite possibly, CSC decides not to go ahead with the CSC Run for this year when they realised that an organised mass running event is not possible. 

So instead of just cancelling the event, Metasports decides to go it on their own.

Just my own speculation. :crazysmile:

meaning metasports most probably lost a major account call "CSC" and rename it as "One Spore" in support of Sport SG and ActiveSG...budget race...just uncle's own speculation...

wonder, at the designated venues, will there be tents to set up contact tracing measures (surely they will be)...we are still at DORSCON Orange..Circuit Breaker V. 3...

check 1: are you not feeling well, if not, don't show up, go and see a physician

check 2: at arrival, SafeEntry (Scan QR code) and register your presence "check-in"

check 3: temperature taking... wha why so hot?...WARM UP mah, why cannot...

check 4: at departure, SafeEntry (Scan QR code) and register your absence "check-out'

check 5: mask on after leaving "designated" venues...

24-hour, weekdays and weekends..23 Oct - 1 Nov

    • Challenge Events in SCSM Virtual Club are virtually recording on your distance with no ranking...so whether if you have more digital badges... but for the Leaderboard Ranking on Virtual Races, pace and timing is important...serious and competitive ones use them to "compete" virtually...locally and globally... actually, another way to go about this "algorithm" is to activate 2 apps...uncle got Runkeeper (Duration) and Adidas Running (Distance)... say in 30 min session (Runkeeper), will alert Uncle...to end Challenge....and 13KM (Adidas Running), will alert Uncle to end Race... only during the window of opportunity on Friday from 0500am - 2359... when both Challenges and VR Events clash...so it will be quite reasonable for BOTH to capture data from one another...like 30 min session challenge captured also in VR of say 5KM..assuming there MR25 runners...5-6KM in 30min...Challenge and VR digital badges.. Because VR Leaderboard with Ranking is more important than Challenges...everyone reserves the best effort on Weekend VR...and would surely do not wish to see "technical errors".. Because, this is the first time VR has a double up...and so Uncle first look at the algorithm "in order" so that the "competition" in the Leaderboard for VR is always fair and authentic...and with "reasonable" confidence...the 42-KM (VR 9) can be the possible "race format" for the "Grand Finale"...if there should be verified by uncle only by the end of the week...since planning of routes and 12-hour back-to-back sessions (4) have been planned...and with a Friday.. The other one of interest is if there should be SCSM 2020 Team of 6 Ekiden [Virtual Race] again, if the setup process what we Techie call the "staking" order...5KM first, then 5KM, 10KM, 5KM, 10KM and lastly 7.195KM...yes, we can have actually authentic Ekiden Teams for Leaderboard too... how about if there should be SCSM Ekiden Team Virtual Race... would you all be interested to form a sgRunners[2020] Virtual Team? 😀  
    • uncle interested to know if Run as One racing app is ready... this one really track the "designated" routes...  
    • uncle follows MyBestRuns...on their Best Upcoming Races... and Most Popular 200 Races for most updates...including events scheduled in 2021...
    • in case you want to know more... https://www.runsohfast.com/post/update-on-malik-aljunied-lawsuit-he-s-late-again Nomination by (National Sports Association) NSA, but final selection and decision is approved by SNOC... Just like why 2019 SEA GAMES Marathon... how did Gordon Lim and Loh Yuting (Men's) got Selected and represent Singapore...you mean Mr Ang Peng Siong (as VP - Training & Selection)...was clearly responsible for nominating them...sorry to say...Mr Ang Peng Siong was always in Swimming (Pool) and not in Running (Tracks)....and no worry Mr Ang will hate uncle for saying, remember...we are bros...sports fraternity...but different sporting activity only...😀 Just wish SOH can do his best lah! To be the First Local Marathoner to be in because he is the best qualified...winning a Medal is secondary...
    • I think MyBestRun should give more details like whether the run is holding a virtual edition instead or not... Personally I don't consider the event cancelled if it has turned into a virtual run... in the record books it will still be listed as the event being held, just not in the usual mass format...
