thank you  @beast 

what @beast  did was simply fill-in Leg 6 (last Leg of the Team - sgRunner2020), after committing to Join Team...search sgRunner2020


team.jpg

 


both uncle and @beast extend invitation to all..

 

please note, your info (name registered at runkeeper) shall be made "visible"...at uncle's Race Roster...

not-private.jpg

and uncle's runkeeper app...because your Ekiden race activity becomes also "Friend's" activity..

meaning...uncle has become Event Organizer...working with Participants enrolled as Team members "Friends"...at the Race Roster platform...FOC...

personal.jpg

if you are not comfortable because your identity shall be "exposed"...so uncle suggest...

use your sgRunner's name to register....like Koh [Last Name] Papa [Name]...

also note: when you reply you are interested here...

we shall all acknowledge that you are in the Team(s)... uncle simply provides you the Team URL... and reveal the Code via PM to Register, that's all...FREE...

team-info.jpg

 

sgRunner (Mixed Team) is currently arranged for Ladies, and in the event of a sole lady participant, just 3-day before closing date...we shall voluntary fill-up sgRunner as Priority Team...

walk/jog/run/crawl/even rest to take a break along the way... as long as you can prefer to use Runkeeper apps (register/sign-in and then select your Ekiden Race event)

Virtual Race is the new normal in Running Race, so makes use of the chance to bond with each other, and importantly, Run for Fun, Run for Health, and Run for being a sgRunner over the years...

In 2020, ALL Races are cancelled because of Covid-19 pandemic...already there is evidence that in 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause an impact on 2021 Races.

If SCSM 2020 VR should have an Ekiden event, we can have fun there too, completing Marathon Distance...except that you have to PAY for SCSM VR Finisher Medals and other Race buffs...tee and merchandize..so wait out for 2020 SCSM VR announcement... 

This invitation is subjected to Team of 6, and if there is not enough fill-in, then we shall just cancel.

cannot Find Team for Elites...covid-19 pandemic season got Elites Virtual Runners?... no Real Race to prove they are Elites?...use apps to prove ELITEs status....

read Silva and Others at the other Forum HWZ EDMW...

Elites or just simply Passionate Runners like us...covid-19 pandemic will never be able to identify NOBoDIEs...all are affected because ALL RACES ARE CANCELLED...because of Covid-19...

anyway...sgRunner2020 can be the other SG Team that will be racing against Elites of the World...are you available? 3 more to make Team sgRunner2020...

ekidenf9f85ee841f753db.jpg

definitely none from Arunkumar Satardekar "Elites"/NoBodies yet...

somemore we have our Tyre Lady with the Tyre...👍...now that is an Elite...can Arunkumar Satardekar "Elites"/NoBodies pull tyres as well?

btw @beast, do you want to use your Username as registered name at Runkeeper apps...please feel free to do so [option]...otherwise, uncle got to "blank-out" your name for privacy reason...lol

Yah man - I don't play play for fun.....

Have downloaded the RunKeeper. Will practice using it .... though have to remember to bring my phone out with me

The launch of the ASICS World Ekiden 2020 coincides with the release of the latest ASICS research which shows, since the start of the COVID pandemic, 42 per cent of people who exercise regularly are finding it difficult to stay motivated without a goal to work towards.

This is why the ASICS World Ekiden 2020 aims to help people renew their connections and enjoy the physical and mental benefits of team competition and re-energise their love of sport and competing.

What you need to do: Join Team sgRunner2020

Virtually log your leg of the race on the ASICS RunKeeper app between November 11 and 22. Work hard and run fast as you strive to pass the virtual tasuki to your teammate!

Finishers will get a place on the ASICS global leaderboard.

Teams that enter and take part will also go into the draw for a chance to win an ASICS prize pack which includes shoes, shorts, t-shirt and socks.

uncle is looking forward to 3 more sgRunners to participate...5KM and 10KM...

10 more days to go...

@Lady Ice, why not you create a Team sgRunners, be the Team Captain, and Invite your Friends...

uncle would simply declare....let's reOrganise into a new Team instead...

Anyway, we are Friends in Runkeeper...you can invite us, and we simple +join from there...and further we interest from there... 

Thanks for reading and following up with the latest Virtual Ekiden event..ASICS World Ekiden 2020.

@Lady Ice, thank you for your confidence, just updated...Runner Autumn is in...

you can invite Other(s)...for either 5 km or 10km (Leg 4 or Leg 5)

since the event is competing with the Elites of the World, why not we run the PB for 2020 for all legs, and see how we ranked ourselves among the Best (Local) and (World)...

so, we might defer the Eco-theme or "tyre-pulling" effort till next time, let's have a consensus on this...Team sgRunner2020

Team sgRunner2020 vs SG Teams [Full 6-member and ready]

Don't miss this opportunity to bond and compete as ONE SgRunners...we still have 2 Legs...

    • that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
    • maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary... from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event. Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88 2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)... the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...) because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌  
    • I feel that the 1 month to complete to complete each leg is too generous. I know this is probably more for those who had not been running regularly to encourage them to run more, but just needing to clock 5km a week is a really setting a very low bar.  If the event sees good number of sign ups, I hope they will come up with another edition with a tighter requirement. 7km routes are quite eay to carve out. They mention "routes" so I suppose it will be more than one, probably one every region. My guess is possibly one in the city (Maybe The Promontory to Marina Barrage and back) and one at ECP.
