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.

    • Yes. I had also written it off. Not just for running but probably for any large scale events like F1, Tennis, Football, Basketball etc..  I agree that in the immediate aftermath, the situation with regards to mass running events is cloudy at best and possibly grim at worst. As I mentioned, mass runs are discretionary expenses. It is something that we will spend money on only after all our basic needs are satisfied. And during the post-pandemic economic recovery phase, discretionary spending will be greatly reduced. Companies and sponsors will also operate on the same wavelengths. Companies struggling with economic survival probably can't be bother with corporate sponsorship  when their bottom line is hit badly and they are facing an existential threat. And what about the event organises? How many of them will still be around to organise mass running events? Some will probably survive but there will surely be casualties. Maybe even races with a long history will need to re-calibrate once the dust settled.  The world post-COVID-19 is probably going to be quite different to what we have experience over the last decade. 
    • I had already written the 2020 running calendar off...  Even if this blows over sooner than expected, the economy will still time to recover and I don't think taking part in a mass run will be something of a priority to many...
    • Not having to take part in any race this year should be the least of all concerns... People's livelihood are being severely affected, businesses are shutting down....these are more pressing issues that the society at large needs to address when this thing is over, rather than whether or not a mass run can still be organized.... If die die still need to run a race, you can always do so virtually: https://web.42race.com/events
    • From a runner in a city under lockdown... I'd suggest you get a treadmill. 🙂   Before this pandemic, I've always been toying with the  idea of getting one (for typhoon season up here where I am), but since my philospphy is that "running is cheap and free" I figured the hefty price tag (SG $1000-3000) for a treadmill would be a waste of money. But who would've known a pandemic like this would happen right? Good thing I have some free weights (dumbells) and a spin bike for cross training, and I'm still running loops insde the house! 🤣  I'm still thinking about one or two events for the next half of this year, but I really doubt this will be over even by then. The more reaslistic scenario is that countries may be facing a possible 2nd or even 3rd wave of infections... so perhaps I might just consider the whole of 2020 as a write off 😅
    • What has been interesting here is that the neighbourhood is making more of an effort to help each other. Volunteer groups have been set up for people who are self isolating and to help our front lone workers get stuff.
