Team sgRunnersHigh5 (4 x 5KM) : This shall be a non-competitive Relay Team. So, for those who have responded as say, "slow" and "have not trained", "first time virtual race"... we shall have online training at our Chat Message Box with invites. @sicklycat, you are welcome to respond.

Please respond here officially on your participation (including those whom we have missed invitation to you)

Thank you.

Note: After Lunar New Year 2021 the the Relay Teams will start, so you have weeks to practice "virtual" run.

So, better be 10KM ready...anytime...anyplace..

Tips - 

1) prepare your 10km virtual route
2) practice with runkeeper app.
3) walk/run on the initial stage...to be famailiar with your 10km virtual route...and your runkeeper app... stop - continue - end..however, on race mode, runkeeper is Start and End...shall update you nearer to you "Race" day...
4) plan your break zone...hydration, toilet...
5) uncle chose 0KM Start as Home base, with 3KM, 5KM loop...
6) 2-3 loops route preferred, otherwise if you can tahan 10KM...make sure you mark where you want to hydrate/break
7) 10KM virtual route remain close your home... no need to be too far...

Of course, uncle has a 42KM route available from Home base...that is why, uncle can Virtual Race 42KM Marathon... Anytime...sunrise, noon, sundown... 😄

Ai yah! Don't take it personally 🤣 (regardless of whether an explanation is needed or not - otherwise, why even bother to mention it right?) 😜

People come and post on this forum in their spare time. They may not be able to immediately reply or  be able to go over everything because they have work, or businesses to run and manage. If they were lazy good for nothings who just exercise and exercise, or hang around on the internet all day, it would be a different matter, but the overwhelming majority of people have more pressing responsibilties to attend to! 🤣

Team sgRunners2021 -
Kohpapa, Wonderfulblevic, thelonelyrunner, <reserved>

@Lady Ice has been actively recruiting for the Team members (especially for sgRunners2021 members who had not been actively in the forum)

thank you for your effort, even though you are busy in job in UK, EU and projects in US....

Behind the efforts of recruitments...we have sincerely reached out to both "active" and "inactive" members, including our Founder - thelonelyrunner.

no hard feeling, bro, you have been invited twice but if you are not ready to go virtual race, would you say yes or no? don't take it heartily...because we have invited you in 2020...you replied "I don't want to"... punctuated with ! and !...doubly strongly...😗

no.jpg

of course, you have been invited once again...

left.jpg

and we are aware of who have read, who have not read, and of course, who have decided to leave...

when you post in your spare time, considering your comments do not represent us or overwhelming majority of people in their absence, silence...somehow, uncle had the impression that you are "strongly" voicing out aloud what you think...so if you can...spare some thoughts and consideration to the overwhelming majority of people who may not share the same thoughts or similar convictions as what you have posted...

Moving on, we are prepared to go for Team 3 soon....Team sgRunnersHi10!...uncle shall be Team Captain..

medal.png

"lobang" benefit, as early registration with the most teams so far, there could be chance of one of the 3 sgRunners Teams could be invited by organizer to represent Singapore at Mount Anorama Bathurst, NSW, Australia in 2022...so looking forward...😁

We are still open to February and March. February is a shorter month with festive weekend. Whether you have spare time or not even present at the forum, we still will surely reach out to ALL..because we were once sgRunners family more than 10 years ago..and shall remain again...especially when all races are cancelled because of Covid-19, we are still engaging in active run "exercise", and even provide a platform for Virtual Race, a Real Run Practice or Race Run to MEET, to be bonded together...we will try our best effort to reach out...

Shall update to ALL soon...😃

Meanwhile, Team sgRunnersUnited and Team sgRunners2021....soon Team sgRunnersHi10!....prepare for your best effort..

Virtual Road or Trail, Any Place Any Time.... 

and please @Lady Ice, no Tyre is needed, just your strongest pairs of legs to race for your PB for 2021...

@kohpapa  Uncle, for Team SgRunnersunited, can I selfishly suggest to do the run at Chestnut Park? I have done some hiking there but never run there before. And compared to Macritchie, I think its trail easier. Good to start for 'new' trail runner like me 😅

But of course if yourself and @beast wish to do the run at Macritchie, I will still go along with you all 😄 More important is we start and finish at the same points.

Being to Chestnut Park...actually that is part of "woodcutters trail"...lots of bikers go there on weekend...it should be accessible from Zhonghua Park...underpass of the expressway...

Likely, not many know how to get there...

Let's first meet at MacRitchie...

next bukit timah hill or dairy farm...and instead to mandai...proceed to Checknut Park from Zhonghua and U turn to bukit timah hill or dairy farm...

last meet bukit panjang park to mandai (central catchment reserve) and U turn..

we want to make sure only 10KM...run/hike...just for simply exploring, team bonding...😀

uncle may split up from any of the meeting place (5km onwards)...to log-in mileage and gps route for Virtual Run Challenge (50KM)...

Attention: Sunday (7/2) 730am - 830am uncle shall be at designated location @ macritchie (see above)...wait for you guys...please note Attendance is not compulsory...no obligation to meet also...OTOT after 830am proceed with planned activity...finish by 10am.

Rain or Shine, uncle will be there...kohpapacap-small.jpg

Thank you co-Captain @Lady Ice for Team sgRunners2021. Members of the Team have been long-time sgRunners who had been "inactive" due to work and family commitment. They could only be reached via emails and personal chats, as well as, they are all newbies to Virtual Race.

Team sgRunnersHi10! - Kohpapa, Lady Ice, <reserve>. We just need 1 member.

Since the response has been overwhelming better than expected, we extend invitation to reach out to ALL (including those whom we have PM with no response, or, in case you have changed your mind and decided to join). 

We shall open (soon) Team4 : Team sgRunnersFinal4. Yes, this will be the final recruitment

Li Chun (立春) is the first festival of the Chinese solar year. This year, Li Chun starts at 9pm on 3 February and lasts till 9pm on 4 February. Meaning we are soon into 1st day of Spring Season of Lunar New Year.

Please make a wise decision for lunar new year 2021 fast... Start your 2021 Lunar New Year with a Global Virtual Race as "Individual" in sgRunners Team.

PM uncle asap on your lunar new year 2021 run resolution.

Thank you.

Reminder: No obligation, No commitment, Trail Running (option) for those members who want to familiarise routes for their 10KM Virtual Run (Cross-Country).

1st Meet - 7/2 (Sunday). 7:30-8:30 (Assembly). 8:30-10 O.T.O.T. 10KM Run/Hike

2021-meet-1.jpg

look out for uncle

kohpapacap-small.jpg remember in SCSM Virtual Club one of the 2020 Virtual Challenge events, lucky draw, uncle won this..

Rain or Shine...Uncle shall join you for 5KM...then proceed to Rifle Range Road Trail from MacRitchie Rifle Range Link..ends Beauty World...from Rifle Range Road...[another 5 KM]... in modified "snowshoes" and "ski aka hiking poles".

"Snowrunning in MacRitchie"...uncle must report to Organiser (Japan) with evidence...show happy faces of self and running club members...

One day @kohpapa you will run on snow. Maybe you will go to Finland to see Father Christmas and the North Pole.... and run in the Rovaniemi 150K in -20 to -30 degrees celcius. It is a beautiful event and then if you dare you will go to do Arrowhead 135 (135 miles). It is brutal from -30 to -50 degrees celcius. Maybe I will return one day as well :)
