  10. @beast, please PM uncle for any "private" discussion on this matter... "Please apply from the Kyoto Marathon Overseas Runner Entry Site for overseas slots (those whose address at the time of entry is overseas)." uncle registered as "Overseas Runner Entry" as (1) Runnet.jp (local resident) account...(Medal Only) and (2) non-Runnet.jp account (overseas runner)...(Medal + "10" cloth) maybe that is not clear from the intial entry offered to Overseas Runners (meaning runners that are Japanese Residents staying overseas, or/and new Participants who are overseas citizens)...
  11. organizer has the option to ship or not ship (will be stated in their Entry Application). for Kyoto Marathon >> Ship to Local Address uncle's shipping vendor will then receive and do the overseas shipment to uncle (singapore) with a fee.. surely it is "not cheap"...uncle understands... "10" design... aiya, just a "fengshui" piece of goodluck thingy...meaning "lasting propsperity"... with Japan Quality "100%" assurance (even shortlisted with voting)..and this race limited to only 7,100 participants in the World...only 1,000 Overseas Participants...

  13. A month ago, a virtual Marathon Race nearly was abandoned at 18.2KM due to "an unexpected" shut down of data to GPS making it impossible to complete a one-run activity time submission. uncle believes that Hard Work and Perseverance is part of the Journey to Success. So uncle took a Restart from 0KM, making this a 60-KM Journey for a 42KM race Experience to Completion. Yes, that Medal of that Journey was received, Today!
  14. being top 10 in the 5KM category, uncle won Nuzest Clean Lean Protein as for pris...better luck next time.. and uncle will be only participant that will expect this finisher medal...
  15. OMG, uncle is a Prize Winner [4th out of 4 Lucky Participants] in the Purse Challenge (Do a 25-minute easy run or jog). uncle has never believed in Random Draws contest in SCSM (Virtual Club), but really "Unbelievable stunned like vegetable", uncle won!
  16. as long as Pris remained as Top 5 Female in 21KM, the pair of Goodr Sun Glasses will be hers...but competition is getting tougher with many overseas participants (trail running elites) coming in to "joster" for top 5 or top 10 positions...just like World Asics Ekidens Virtual Race... fast and furious until the end of the Virtual Race (15 Dec)... possibly both uncle and Pris may be dropping out of Top 5/Top 10...got consolation prizes for Last 5...lol...uncle can go for that also...
  17. Finally, uncle completed the series 42K/21K/10K/5K/3K (Family)/1K (Kids) for STGR Marathon Virtual Race. Registrations are FREE during Covid-19 (because Race was cancelled). However, if you do you best and be ranked in the respective Virtual Races, you will still be awarded Prizes as though you were in Run-in Place Races (Real Runs). Well, uncle is happy to say, are ranked to win prizes (wearables and eatables) for all the categories. Best of all with FOC Registrations

  21. 1) The organizer cut everyone who exceeding 42.2 and beyond to 42.1... maybe 42.175 to be precised... 2) Yes, only less than 5,000 for this one...In fact, uncle believes the Virtual Melbourne Marathon ("shared" Horizon platform like KLSCM 2020 VR) registration is still opened, so you can try provided you are using wearable devices to sync with App.. vs limited on 7,100 for online Kyoto Marathon, with more than 3/4 are reserved for residents of Japan.
