  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. 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!
  4. 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...
  5. 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

  9. 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. TATTA app (in Japanese language only) is accessible for Japan Citizens and Residents because ALL can register with the

  14. only uncle (42KM) and @prisangel (21KM) participated in this Virtual Edition ... submission using Strava app only....start 7am - 3pm (original Real Run requirement in the past)... interestingly, *Strava Link is required... uncle submitted on Nov 15... Just to share on Strava app...How to spot cheating on Strava... so honorably race means "moving" time is taken as qualifying... still pending, until final ranking and results on Dec 15... uncle was ranked 8th based on "Moving Time" and not "Elapsed Time" in "Top 10 in the 42KM" Cate

  18. uncle uploaded...today... expecting more coming this week...till this Sun (Dec 6)...
  19. good for you... uncle will be on Garmin Connect... .MOVE. app aiya...cannot connect with any other apps and yet get 1.8 out of 5 stars...compare apple to orange... uncle has Tested/Verified in past week... Strava shall be uncle's backup App on Phone... Tips for why upload manually from Phone app can be better... if uncle uses Strava...uncle no need to run "too much virtually" unlike if use Garmin Connect... If uncle must run an "honorable" race...be professional...Garmin Connect is the "Real" Run Timing... because it was announced that "Top 5 Runn
  20. uncle has used both .MOVE. app and KLCSM 2020 VR App...these are uncle's assessment: 1) KLSCM 2020 VR App can be connected and syncd with Polar, Fitbit and Garmin. (+) .MOVE. has none of this. (-) 2) KLSCM 2020 VR App even though is not reliable simply just like .MOVE. developed by a local vendor. [even] 3) Hence, even if you do not really need to run with KLSCM 2020 VR App, it is perfectly ok. As long as you have Polar, Fitbit and Garmin watches...you don't really need to run with the Phone. You can sync and upload the data from the smart watches to the KLSCM 2020 VR App.
  21. uncle from corporate...don't understand what you mean by an "illogical idea" we are just reporting what we get from news resources from all over the world..that's all.. if you can, what are your perspectives on the idea...hope yours are not "illogical" or "senseless" that could lead to an otherwise another "illogical" but "senseless" workable suggestion..sounded corporate enough, right? If that is Trump in the corporate, he would say, "son, you are fired.."
  22. uncle fully agree... any running app will do...how to upload manually... GPX Uploader link - https://app.klmarathon.district-technologies.com/ Practice with the KLSCM 2020 VR App...see Leaderboard for confirmation...

  23. yes...because you have already purchased "your entitlement"...same like other Real Races...Qualification..failure to do so, you don't have a Qualifying Certificate...but all your entitlements are yours to keep. Unless you happen to be a podium runner or this Qualification is important for 2021 Qualifying Entry like WWM...yes, failure to meet... uncle took part in this one... you can register free and get an e-badge...otherwise registered with Run for the Medal... Of course, motivation will be higher if you paid for the Medal with Run.. Statistically, almost 2/
  24. humbly, yes and no... uncle's IAAF certification level 1 is a community coaching (National-level), and because uncle is also a Technical Official [IAAF certification level 1] meaning uncle is certified Coaching and Officiating/Umpiring of races sanctioned by Singapore Athletics (which is also an Affiliate of World Athletics) This is just passionate time, not full-time, of course uncle receive allowances for attendance and contribution at SA. Positively, 2021 likely will have more competitions as we officials had recently done 50 persons only in per session (1/2 day) with no spectat
