JoyRun is the sole on-line marathon partner for Chinese Athletic Association, and in 2020, the app also became the official provider of virtual marathon services to Nagoya Marathon and Nagoya Women’s Marathon in Japan - two races that have been extremely popular with Chinese runners. It costs 1,000 yuan to run virtual Nagoya Women’s Marathon and there are only 2,000 places available. The rewards are the authentic finishers’ medal – Tiffany’s necklace, a t-shirt and a towel.

As my Soleus watches sync with my Strava account (I keep the Garmin's records private on G. Connect). Since I don't believe in paying for a virtual race, there's a 99.9% chance I'll be in the free category "For the Love of Running" 😜

We'll see when they release the full mechanics on Jan7 (err, Jan 8 in our part of the world)...

let uncle share another list "lobangs"...

in late 2020, most of Run in-place marathon events were cancelled, and hence there were "virtual events"  that was held in late 2020 or some that is going to be held in present (2021)...

Present (2021)...

wow..not bad..so uncle explored in recent days...any more "lobang"..Enter more events..

Past 2020...Verona Marathon - Trilogy (Nov 2020), Italy (cancelled)

so the organizer recommends...runclusive

so uncle submitted...10K/21K/42K (for Verona Marathon - Trilogy)...and

verona-marathon-trilogy.png


 
uncle completed oveaseas "virtual run" on historically sites in Israel (DEAD SEA - once Moses crossed here)...and Italy (Verona - The City of Love : Remeo and Juliet)

Verona.jpg

Do share your run route for your kyoto marathon! ..

actually there is not much to share at kyoto marathon, except the medal is very nice...after one for the two designs that ware shortlisted by the members of the running community in late 2020...

this one is coming in February....uncle signed up for 50KM...

Fun-on-Sapporo-VR-0.jpg

participate.jpg

Singapore is a "non-winter" country, so how to show uncle "running in snowshoes" for the event? and meeting all the "requirements" for the Virtual Race?

so uncle came up with the "snowshoes"...

Snow-Shoecbfdb303c8f8e216.jpg

Ninja Van: "yo...seow uncle kohpapa, this one you ordered from amazon....sign here...."

uncle will need 3 supporting evidence (including one with gps)...

this one will be one of 3 submissions...

Fun-on-Sapporo-VR-2a.jpg

yes, uncle going to run with "showshoes" @ ECP Beaches for 50KM for Fun on Sappporo VR (single or multiple submissions)...since someone once asked the organizer...

Q--A2ebce0b4cbf899b6.jpg

What's up everyone? 😁 

I'll be doing a few virtual races myself (only the free ones) for this year, just for the heck of it, although I presume it would be safe to consider a real race somewhere near the end of 2022? (SCSM2022?) 😅  That will mean my theoretical maximum heart rate will be slower by 2 then (minus 2 years) but that's life LOL.

I've been reading up on news in Japan, and the way things are over there, I think the (already postponed) 2020 Olympics are really doomed. They'd be crazy to push through with it. I should've gotten one of those Tokyo 2020 Olympics promotional shirts they were selling when I was there in the months before the pandemic - it would've made a good conversation piece someday 😜

Virtual London Marathon 2021 "lobang"...

London-2021-a.jpg

 

London-2021.jpg

 

Info - https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/the-event/virtual-marathon

 

https://www.significancemagazine.com/sports/601-still-running-against-the-odds-revisiting-the-london-marathon-ballot

In 2019, 414,000 UK citizens balloted for a spot to run at the marathon.

If only 50,000 spots were given, most likely we won't get any spots by the time it opens to international runners.

Unless they reserve a number of spots for international runners to apply on 16 Feb.

Share on other sites

From 2021 info...

london7c4324e3ce0d53f9.jpg

2021 - 100,000 - Virtual 50,000 and Run in-place 50,000.

Quote

Everyone who entered the ballot for the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon will find out on Monday 8 February if they have been successful or not. Unsuccessful applicants will have an exclusive window from Tuesday 9 February to Tuesday 16 February to enter the virtual event.

just hope uncle is "lucky" to grab a virtual event spot...Try and get it...

like many Popular Overseas Marathon events...join Oversea Run Tours and surely you can pay premium price for both Run in-place or even Virtual Race...😀

Share on other sites

With virtual runs getting more popular, I won't be surprised if all 50,000 slots are taken up by UK citizens this year. We shall see on 16 Feb.

Anyway 38 pounds is almost 70 sgd. For 1 medal and shirt. Most certainly not cheap.
