OhMyGod, 

COVID-19 is no play play, better be safe than sorry. Run alone or with a few friend is ok. 

Use this time to upgrade your running techniques/ skills.

Got lah! RunningGuild races and some tri/bi/VM proceeded as plan. Safari Zoo Run Forest Force 50 seems to be going ahead. 

You mentioned this same thing in another thread but I did not reply to your comments then. 

Then you mentioned this again in this thread is unforgivable when I had already summarised in the 1st post of this thread of the summary of the races postponed/cancelled AND races that proceeded as planned.

OhMyGod,

No refund, No sign up.

World Athletics Half Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020 has been postponed

(info - mybestruns.com)

mybestruns.jpg

In every event that has Elites' participation such as World Athletics or WMM, when we sign up, we are the recreational runners who are able to participate alongside elite competitors. Cancellation of such events would mean "for Elites only".

It will be interesting that now as recreational runners who paid entry fee, is there a "refund" policy or insurance policy such as injury or medical expenses suffered during race to be compensated by race organisers? For those who are overseas recreational runners who paid for travel, accommodations and others, is there a "refund" policy or travel insurance policy in the event the race is postponed or cancelled.

One thing for sure, future race fee will definitely factor "administrative and logistics" costs on what if the race is postponed or cancelled  because of "xyz" factors. 

OhMyGod, what race should I signup? No refund, No sign up. We are becoming very selective consumer as "recreational runner".

Let this be a strong reminder to sub-standard race organisers who failed to delight or to provide a minimum satisfactory "race experience" for recreational runners : No good review, No refund (cancellation, postponement or bad experience), No sign up.

This will be challenging mission for Sports Event Management to reflect upon their actions on post COVID-19 and its impact on future Races.

I am watching this event with interest. If nothing happens 2-3 weeks after the event, that is, no new infections that can be traced from the event itself (and not elsewhere), then that would be good. If a sudden outbreak comes from this, then I'm pretty sure that a lot of race organizers around the world will also be cancelling and say: "See? I told you so!"

Under these circumstances, I'm of the opinion that the spectators and well wishers should just be asked to stay home. As a runner, of course, the cheering and support are highly appreciated. I don't want to hurt their feelings of course, since they mean well, but these are difficult times and more precautions must be taken.

In addition to the usual sports gels you tuck into your waistband, you now have to have a small bottle of hand sanitizer too... Oh boy. Imagine if you're so tired already and you mistakenly sip the alcogel instead?!?!? 😅

    • Yes, almost a break coming 2 months, Pre-SEA Games qualifying races officiating , ultra distances running and practices are really very long hours...and you know uncle is back when you start hearing uncle time to "howlian" some personal accomplishes... Team Performance... 10KM Team Relay vs Global Teams. Congratulations, Team sgRunners have maintained Top 10 out of 24 Teams who participated in the Relay 10KM Global Challenge.  We are Top in Asia and we are in sub4 hour. Well done and thank you. 👍
    • According to uncle-aka-"future-trend reader and fortune-reading teller"... Career and Wealth are stable, especially love in general, except special attention to be paid to health issues... OSIM...you mean this one... buying for SOH gf's mother on Mother's Day...thanks to mutual understanding due to crisis in March... and for SOH's mother on Mother's Day...enjoy a lot of tenderness and love.. of course, SOH needs one also for his active career lifestyle...as UA World Ambassador and get paid handsomely...  start from monthly installment SGD 99.. quite unlike his usual style...aiya...still got High Court pending case...WIN big means  1) Millions in Loss Income compensation for having to forfeit having to go previous SEA Games even if SOH has qualified, because of Ashley Liew's Court Case. Remember in previous post..credibility of a National Sports Association who supported Ashley... XXX - corrected... National Sports Authority who supported Ashley in the first place, "thoroughly investigated". 2) Ashley Liew appeal against Expert Witness (The Truth) and Expert Witness (Compensation for SOH's Loss of Income) and what if Ashley Liew LOST in both appeals. Kena pay big big, even a layman in non-Law also know, "Pay the Price for not keeping your mouth shut when you lose, tsk tsk tsk". 3) Expect "National Sports Authority" to issue a Press Statement... S****  SOH 4) SOH vs "National Sports Authority" next saga...why you reject my application to go to SEA Games ah? Mere speculations on the future outcome...eat 🍿....zzzz and dream on 🍿...because the TRUTH hurts.  
    • uncle can, and was thinking about forming a team as Team Captain, but, uncle thinks there is none here...😲 in March April  Just completed a virtual full marathon distance... going for next one this weekend... shall be starting Virtual FM from May 8-30... BTW, this Virtual Race is FOC to sign-up, and can win prizes with lucky draw.. https://www.sunshinecoastmarathon.com.au/atlas-events-virtual-series    
    • the distance looks quite scary... 1680km for the minimum Bronze standard.. If we can get 10 members, each member have to run 168km in a month meaning around 42km per week.... not impossible.. just that need to find at leas 10 members who will commit to a 42km per week running schedule.... 
    • I noticed even his recent facebook post on the OSIM chair that he had seemed to be quite unlike his usual style...
