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.

    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
