  10. let uncle share another list "lobangs"... in late 2020, most of Run in-place marathon events were cancelled, and hence there were "virtual events" that was held in late 2020 or some that is going to be held in present (2021)... Present (2021)... so the organizer recommends... uncle submitted GPS-42K for evidence (Dead Sea Marathon) expect by mail... wow..not bad..so uncle explored in recent days...any more "lobang"..Enter more events.. Past 2020...Verona Marathon - Trilogy (Nov 2020), Italy (cancelled) so the organizer rec
  11. uncle represented Singapore as International Paricipant with these submissions... as well as submission of GPS data [21KM] as evidence... looking forward to receiving from Siberia... sport hat, face shield and finisher's medal.. uncle's overseas virtual races "lobang"... of course, this weekend...Kyoto Marathon 2021... uncle registered as "local resident"... and entered for this race... again this "lobang" was announced in dec 2020.. that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it
  12. 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 a
  13. According to a reply reported with the similar question... Current timeline in Covid-19 worldwide...Vaccination... Vaccine isn't a cure... it is just to prepare your body to manufacture the necessary antibodies to combat covid... Side effects... it may take "doses" to really to say we are Covid-19 "free", but really?!? Even though virtual runs may not be the most preferred option, virtual runs provide runners a choice to get their runs done... well said, let's say 2021 may still be a year when run-in place race may still have postponed or even cance
  14. uncle did not take part in this... don't really like the wet, muddy and soggy MacRitchie Trail (a must venue for participation) Run..."soil and spoil" shoes fast...especially in year-end wet season winners - registered Free (if they are on Leaderboard Ranked can win prizes)... unless pay add-ons - Medals, Finisher Tees.. otherwise...all pay with Race Pack Bundles... https://hksg.run/overview/ ...FYI for those who are Podium Winners...prizes
  15. Yes, Run Locally, but "Race Virtual" Globally... Joyrun (app) monthly report card on uncle's running statistics... and at TATTA app..January 2021 Leaderboard... you can see there are lots of Japanese uncles and aunties here... new motivated resolution and challenge for 2021...to be monthly top 500 @ TATTA... so uncle's new game plan is to chong more "FM"s to beat more Japanese uncles and aunties...lol

  17. Covid-19 pandemic has changed what is norm [past] Run-in Place to the present [technology] Virtual Runs... If uncle has done nothing to embrace [Apps - technology enabled] then, 2020 will mean NO Run-in Place, and continue to wait out for 2021...already most Spring Marathons starting from China, Japan, and even USA have cancelled...some have moved to 2022...most have hoped for Fall 2021... Run Locally but Run Global Virtually...Boston, New York, Tokyo, London, Melbourne, Malaysia, Singapore...with Cross-border suspensions and major international cities announcing under lockdowns...
