  1. Congrats uncle!! Plaque looks nice also!
  2. It always amaze how professional sportsmen like Soh can sustain his motivation to achieve his goals. Just like it amazes me how Uncle @kohpapa can run more than 500 km in a month Frankly I have used uncle as someone I know (from forum) to motivate some people to start exercising. Or at least just do some sports they enjoy without going to 'extremes'. As for this Soh's saga, I think it has gone on long enough. They have both contributed to the country. I hope the outcome is something that will be good for both parties.
  3. @kohpapa congrats Uncle! Do get 2 doses of covid vaccination before you travel.
  4. I expected Uncle @kohpapa to take up the 190.5 km category I signed up for the 10 km one. Had originally wanted to rerun the Bizad Charity route. But guess have to run the Tampines route then. LOL
  5. I think the registration fee is very affordable...another virtual race for consideration Website: https://www.nusrunbig.com/ Tough runs don’t last, tough runners do. Let’s make history together by being part of NUS Giving Run BIG’s first-ever virtual race! Be a part of this greater movement as they aim to reach 1905KM collectively to commemorate the year NUS was established – building a legacy of giving since 1905. Experience the excitement by participating individually or getting your family and friends on board and run for a good cause. What is NUS Giving? The NUS
  6. Uncle @kohpapa passion is in running, so it isn't surprise he can clocked so much distances untiringly @beast also is correct. Nothing to compare. As said before, nowadays I am happy just to run 5 km or lesser, combined with some static exercises. A matter of personal preference really. Personally, I do not have 'run targets' this year. Don't have Uncle's ambitions But do have a goal to complete round-the-island cycling and perhaps get a kayak 1 star cert. Running isn't the only sports to enjoy (Uncle don't scold me for saying this in a runners forum). We may just do each di
  7. With the number of new covid cases and possible spread in communities, I have a feeling this Sundown physical race may not proceed....
  8. I think if the authorities approve, this will be a litmus test of how other races are going to be organised. 4000 is not a lot for Sundown, but there are many other races with historically lower participation numbers. Such races may be allowed to proceed if this Sundown is successfully done. I believe there may be other requirements for the runners, such as proof of vaccination? Nevertheless, I think it is a good start.
  9. @kohpapa Uncle, with so much running, did you keep track of how many medals you have?
  10. Been reading runners comments in the official 2XU FB. Understand their frustrations as 2XU race is not cheap. I don't expect them to give full refunds as they are not like Sundown or Income Eco, both who have strong financial backing. At least Safari Zoo Run, also organized by Pink Apple, was able to provide partial refund and complement with access to all 4 wildlife parks.
  11. As far as I recall, I think 2XU and Sundown are the remaining races who postponed their last year's races to this year while withholding the participants money, though Sundown did give runners option of full refund. April to June are the months where these 2 races are usually held. I believe there are going to be some updates from them quite soon. Personally I believe Sundown may still give runners full refund, whereas 2XU is likely to go virtual.
  12. I think booking of time slots are feasible for such virtual races, where the participants may not be a lot. But for popular physical races which can have many thousands of runners, time slots may not be feasible. Personal feel is unless majority of local population is vaccinated and there is solid clearance test for overseas visitors, local races will still not happen.
  13. I remember last year there were quite a number of positive comments regarding this race, especially on the part on using their app..
