Decathlon Virtual Run 2021 [31 March - 15 May]

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing! $15 sounds very worth it considering all the stuff you will be getting.

Only drawback is you have to visit their stores twice, once to collect your race pack and then your finisher pack after that.

Yes, the price is very reasonable. I paid only $13.5 since i have passion card.

What is attractive about this race, at least to me, is that it spreads across 3 mths and recommend the type of runs to be done. I will be keen to know what is the route they will be suggesting for the 3rd leg.

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.

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)...

shipping.jpg

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...👌

    • We are here because we want to continue from where we left off in 2020.... (1 FEBRUARY - 21 MARCH 2021) Info: Please Refer to Front We continue to invite ALL to participate as individual..10KM, 8KM, 5KM with Medal as Add-on (Yes, this is a Paid Event with $ in US$) We welcome you to be one of 4 Relay Team Member ($5 discount for registration). We have already registered Team sgRunnersUnited. We shall be activating Team sgRunners2021 soon. Please PM to "acknowledge" your interest For both Individual and Team Events, you need to Register with Runkeeper app and RaceRoster website. Race entry info must be from your mobile so that you can have a "Race" event registered at Runkeeper. Payment is credit card. PM uncle on your interests. Thank you. Note: Team sgRunersUnited has opted to run on cross-country sites like in dairy farm, macritchie or chestnut. So suggestion, why not we add with evidence of pics on venue and activities of Good Fun, and share here at this Forum Thread. As for uncle, because of a Japanese Virtual Race Challenge that required uncle to Run in Snow (Cross-country Running) for 50km (registered distance option)..."Fun on Sapporo Virtual Race 2021"... so uncle came with the wearing this pair "snowshoe" for "cross-country" virtual race challenge...run on ECP beaches...50KM accumulative... For "non-winter" Singapore...uncle explained to the Japanese Organizer Sapporo.... Snow here is always Sun and Sand. So Team, if you want to Join and Meet or Remote Run, you now understand why uncle's choice for the Cross Country Virtual Race Relay 10KM Route and Vanue...just because uncle needs to "combine" 10KM evidence concurrently with another VIrtual Race Challenge 50KM..😃
    • Yes, the world has changed. Not permanently of course, since this is nothing new, actually. Throughout history, man has had to cope with some form of pestilence (from leprosy, the black plague, smallpox, tuberculosis, influenza... ) but our ancestors have survived. Their descendants (that's us) now number almost 8 billion on this planet. It's just our generation's turn now to step up to the plate and rise to the challenges of this day and age.  The way things are going though, it appears we're going to have prepare ourselves to fight this long haul. Oh boy... what we wished would be a speedy 5k, is now a full blown marathon 😅 hopefully, it doesn't turn into an ultra...  
    • I hope that would be the way to go for international marathons, even after this pandemic. To allow people from other countries who couldn't get a spot at the actual race to also take part virtually. Not only will it bring more money for the organizers, but it will also allow more runners to feel some form of participation to the race, though it is just running in their own backyard.
