Virtual Races/Challenges Around the World [2021]

Recommended Posts

uncle expects SCSM 2021 shall have Virtual Marathon with almost same price as before with crappy entitlements....with no add-ons option...sponsors' items...inluding tee and others like shoe bags etc..

and we pay on the expenses for our DIY virtual race nutrition and hydration needs...yes, toilet/washroom needs....of course, now no more embarrassment to "Drink Water from Toilet" because it is FOC option... 😁

however, uncle notices Virtual Race popular routes are getting more congested due to besides runners, Bikers also shared the same footpaths or even PCNs...uncle also use Cycling path because there are simply too many walkers/runners on Runners' Lanes...

hence, finding less crowded/congested race routes become a challenge...and "secret" ... 

coming March '21, uncle has expected at least weekly Virtual Race of 10K, HM and Marathon...

Japan...10K, 16K, HM and Marathon

Some of these VR marathon events are really expensive - almost same price as at the event!

I fully agree…they are ridiculously expensive for a virtual run.

It shouldn’t cost more than $50 to send a shirt and medal. I know times are bad and race organizers need to get themselves out of the red, but they also need to be more reasonably priced.

I am not sure how many of them thought of approaching sponsors and further reduce and pass the cost savings to participants.

But even for SCSM who had sponsors, they charged $60 for a bag, shirt and medal.

SCSM was free for me cos I don't want the goody bag, medal or t-shirt.

If it was my first running event, I would have paid the price as a momento. I agree with their charge as they have to post out something which is a cost they did not have to incur when it is an onsite event. Also some places will require tax is paid on the postage.

What I disagree with is being forced to pay for the gifts and forced to accept it when I don't want it.
