i-Run @ International Business Park (IBP)

Recommended Posts

Not sure if some of you have seen this. But I received an EDM from my friend working in IBP about the launch of i-Run at IBP. Worth considering if you are living in the West area.

Not sure if the weblink given by my friend is correct or not.

www.i-run.com.sg

Will post the poster once I find it in my email 2 days back.

Hi everyone,

yes, i-run is launching at IBP next wed, 30 April. its free & its open to all runners esp. begineers. i'm also looking for lead runners.

$35 for an hr from 6pm to7pm. must be a certified fitness trainer & 1st Aid cert.

$20.00 for a running assistant who may not be certified. The fitness trainer should do the warm up and cool down while the running assistant is to help guide the runners, encourage them and ensure that all are back safely.

As for marshals, they will be paid $15.00 per session

kindly contact me if you are interested to help out.

My opinion is that if your work is desk-bound type, you can always negotiate with your boss. Eg. For me, I go to gym twice weekly during lunch time for 2 hours. So I actually had a common understanding with boss that i will come in early for work on days I go to gym.

I think you can try to talk to your boss? If I'm not wrong, the weekly sessions start at 6 pm. But for the launch, it will start at 5? Is that right, Emelyn?

10km route i-Run@IBP:

irunibpmn9.jpg

This was my first time joining the i-Run@IBP. Very much lesser runners as compared to i-Run@RP. Nice meeting Dream, Earth & Jinzhou.

Have a fast and interesting warm lead by the fitness instructor, and off we go for our 3, 5 or 10km. Was a hot and humid day yesterday. Can feel the heat coming off from the ground. The route for all the 3 distance is the same, just that shorter distance will u-turn earlier than the longer distance. The route is basically along the ulu Pandan Canal, and entirely flat terrian. There is a railway track and a traffic light stop in between. Along the way, can also see alot of runners training there. As usual, can see the team leading the run and motivating the runners.

My forerunner 405 clocked a total distance of 10.21km, which is very accurate. And was surprised to know that the Polar GPS which the fitness instructor was wearing, also clocked the same distance. His is a high end Polar model which cost $800 plus!!! :Shocked:

End of the run, was suprised to see there isn't any warm down.....hahaha!!! :Big Grin: I think most of the i-runners either ran back to their office, or just take the 100plus and go.

Had a good chat with Earth, Dream and Jinzhou.....will most probably joined the run again next Wed.

    • Agree with you. I believe people who pull these stunts are only a small handful and they are non-elites runners. 
    • Run for Heroes 2020 All it takes is for you to run, walk or dance a distance of 1km to show your support and gratitude!Upon completion of your run, you will receive two wristbands - one for yourself and the other will be sent to a frontliner with a personalised message of thanks from you as a tangible show of gratitude.Come join us from today until 8 August to show our support as one Singapore! (info - https://www.runforheroes.sg/)                  
    • Actually, one of the things I always look forward to in coming over for SCSM would be carboloading at some hawker stall. Once, after asking for a sixth order of rice, the uncle who owned the place just exclaimed  "哇!!!" (Waah!) 🤣 The only problem is that there always seems to be new construction constantly in Singapore. One place I ate at before was already closed with a new building being built over it the next time I came back, so its hard to have a favorite place to eat.
    • Now, what I'm going to say next may be a somewhat unpleasant topic among runners, but the reality is that among fellow athletes.... there are some who cheat. 🤔  Although this has been minimized now in modern races with timing mats/chips and vigilant marshalls on the course, in less sophisticated events, some dishonest runners take shortcuts, surreptitiously exchange bibs with a faster runner somewhere along the course (so their times come out better), and in one ultra, board their support vehicle when they think nobody is looking, then get off 10-20km later down the road! I don't know what goes on in the mind of those dishonest people who later claim their finisher shirts and medals just so they can brag on their social media accounts of something they did not rightfully accomplish. They are only fooling themselves. They may be actually very few in number, but if they are so thick skinned to be able to do that in a real race, how much more in a virtual one based on an honesty system? They may have  rode a bycycle, or used roller skates/ a skateboard for all we know! IMHO, that is why a medal/finisher shirt from an actual race will always command more respect and honor amongst us runners than that from a virtual one.    
    • I agree. Crossing the finish line at SCSM by analogy, would be like earning a diploma from NUS, while a virtual run on the other hand, would be like getting a certificate of some online course from some shady internet school. You may have truly done the coursework and gained the appropriate learning in both cases, but when you present your documents to a potential employer, the former will be solid proof of your accomplishment and hard work compared to the latter.
