Transferring/Selling/Request of Race Slots of Any Event Discussion

Recommended Posts

hi all, please be reminded that buying/selling/giving of race slots is not allowed in the forum...

:rolleyes:

1)It is state in the forum rules that buying/selling/giving of race slots

is not allowed in the forum?

After checking with many member, the reply is 'No'.

2)When a runner registered for a race,

surely he wanted enjoy his run & go for his PB timming.

Unless he is injure, going oversea,...

if not, who will pay for the race fee & then sell it,

knowning that he may not find any buyer?

3)If u say that buying/selling/giving of race slots

is not allowed in the forum, that race singlet, medal, bag,... also cannot sell?

Please note that race slot, race medal,... are not 'control' restricted' items.

4)We must have a clear mind, the function of SGRUNNER.com is the 'help' runner in many

ways, share running information, make friends, ...

an example:

if a runner cannot go for the race, then sell it or give away or throw away

if a runner do not like the singlet, then sell it or give away or throw away

if a runner do not need the medal, then sell it or give away or throw away

Throw it, is a waste

Give away, unless you are very rich, or your good friend want

if good friend already going for the race, then sell it.

That was 2yrs ago! no wonder so many runner i ask say no such rule.

"we do not state in the rules of this forum"

Why not state in the Forum Rule?

usually, if anyone plan to post 'sensitive' topic, will read the forum rule,

if it is not mention at the Forum rule, but under other topic

(somemore dated in 2008, how we know?

cannot expect us to read all topic, right?

Hi.wwwlimlim.

I agreed with you...you have the strong points....I have the same thinking as you.

But, now....I have changed my mindset....after met up a few Organisers and discuss about selling or giving away the race slot, it is not advisable to do it due to insurance issue.

Every runners registered have paid the insurance by the Organiser before the running event start. Every runners must run in his own name and his race bib allocated, not other runner name or bib number. If the runner run with other runner bib, any mishaps during the run.....no insurance claim at all if found out the bib is not belong to that runner.

I hope you got my explaination.

Sgrunners.com did the right thing ---> Not allow runners to sell or buy race slot in their forum. It is because Sgrunners.com don't want to act as a third party to assist runners to sell their race slot (sensitive case)......it is to avoid any mishap or troubles or blaming or under police invstigation. You must know too....sgrunners.com is not paid to do this services. Sgrunners.com is the place where runners can get more information, experiences, friends.......etc.etc.

Folks - i think its fairly obvious why you are not allowed to trade race slots (in the forum or anywhere else).

Every race worth its salt has the runner's blood group on the bib. God forbid if during the run, you are in need of medical assistance that requires blood and you are given the wrong blood group!! It could kill you.

Of course, you can try proving you are very smart by hunting for another runner who has the same blood group as you but the organizers cant check that for every runner. Hence the rule.

please read my reply. U are the one don't "understand"

only big boss use that word, we are all runner, friends,... key word 'equal'

i am not your maid, recruit, son,....

i know that u want all parties not to 'word of fire', which is good.

In my reply,

*what i mean is since it is highlighted in 2008, then many of the runner,

including myself are not aware of such rule,

many of my friend (members) are not happy, make noise...

At least, i post to find out more, give suggestion to improve.

*if it is state in the Forum Rule(heading), not under others,

then everyone know, make the life easy for everyone, everyone happy.

To add 1 more rule in the Forum rule(heading) is not difficult,

if need my service, can i do it, foc.

*example, when your friend wear the sundown ultra marathon finisher shirt,

u know that he don't even join the race,

he don't even can complete 1/2 marathon,

to most runner who go through years of trainning, it is fair?

are we going to set a rule that no selling of finisher shirt allow?

the bottom line is, we must have a clear mind,

the forum is to 'benefit' all runner, make friend.

i m giving my suggestion.

To me,

A person wear a marathon finisher shirt, but he did not take part,

he may like the design, show off...

sell/buy slot- injure, out of town.... join friend, last min,...

there are million of reason why people do this, do that,

there are million of right/ wrong reason

as long not harming/ commit offence, ok lar

live is short, be happy

yes it's not stated in the forum rules explicitly that transfer of race slots is not permitted in the forum. you're technically correct here. but any regular forum member would have noticed that the moderators have kindly & patiently pointed out that this is forum policy everytime this issue have come out. to be sure you're not expected to read every thread in the forum, but i think the others have already explained why the unauthorized sale/exchange of race slots (according to the rules of the organisers as well, not just sgrunners policy) is not such a good idea.

so pls do not take other peoples comments so personally and move on. & to be fair to aerosolcan, he has been nothing but helpful in trying to clarify this issue so pls take it easy ok?

cheers! :drinks:

Members who continue to persistently make such posts and refuse to heed moderators's warning should be banned from the forum. Since forums of other nature mostly have such practice, I believed it would be feasible here too.

agree!

truly agree with handphone...

admin should also discourage members from using disgusting photos as their display picture... my colleague thought i was surfing some porno site

rubbish

Rules and Regulations are set by human beings....it can be change if the rules neither positive or negative.

Anyway, if you are really cannot run on the event date with valid reason, you still can get back your refund of 50% of the registration fee.

As ryuxis mentioned....transfer the bib legally to another runner. It can be done! You just need to pay some admisnistrative cost.

Difference organiser have different rules set for the pre-race transfer/selling/buying of race slot.

    • We shall be ending in 3 days... having committed to 700km... Just sharing on the perspective as an ultra runner and how "monthly mileage" helps...LACTOSE THRESHOLD...         LACTOSE THRESHOLD is not about "being how lian" or "being smug about leaderboard"...it is about staying discipline, be consistent in daily mileage according to Target mileage [weekly/monthly], lots of patience with proper REST and RECOVERY, and must be at a perpetual state of "injury-free" status at all times... Giving up...Fatigue, Pain and Hurts are always there...Weather Condition...Day/Night...Career Commitment...when there is a better priority in life, then why commit to LT? Another Life-Time experience for uncle while we enter into "Covid-19" Endemic - Covid-19 regularly found among particular people or in a certain area - from June 21, 2021. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay LT (Long Term) in Runs...😄      
    • Singapore Athletics nominates Soh Rui Yong for 2021 SEA Games. Will he get to go? https://themonitor.sg/2021/06/14/singapore-athletics-nominates-soh-rui-yong-for-2021-sea-games-will-he-get-to-go/ Reality check: However, whether he gets the nod to travel and represent Singapore would still be reliant on the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC ) selectors, and if the SEA Games takes place at all. Said Soh, “I started training for the 1500m this year for the first time in eight years because we haven’t been able to travel for marathons since last year, and we haven’t had any marathons held locally. 
    • 1. Visit Lady Ice in London and run the London Marathon there. 2. Hold on to it and try to get a slot for a physical run somewhere that Aegean Airlines would fly to before May next year. Is there a Aegean Airline office here in Singapore to redeem your free ticket?
    • 1. I think it would look good on SNOC if they decide to show graciousness and put the past behind them - SRY already did anyway, and made amends with the new SA committee. There isn't any negative news surrounding SRY for the past 2 years too, as he seems like he stopped competitive running for a while. I don't see any reason not to accept the nomination based on merit. That said, I am slightly disappointed that he is not going for a marathon anymore. He was sort of a motivational figure to me and inspire to go for more marathons when he was the SEA games champions in 2015 and 2017. 2. I believe the eventual consensus would be to agree to let Vietnam postpone the game to next year, when the Covid situation should be more or less stabilized already after most of us are vaccinated. Like the Olympics or Euro cup, not likely that these sports events get cancelled. But I am a little amused that Singapore actually step forward to volunteer to host the game if Vietnam is unable to, always the "ostentatious" image that our government wants to portray to our neighbours...
