SG RED DEVIL

RUN AS ONE SPORE (23 OCT - 01 NOV 2020)

Recommended Posts

Was there any official notification of the cancellation? It is strange that the website was just suddenly taken down and all the posts removed from their Facebook page. I was interested despite the higher cost as they tried to make it more interactive than other virtual races

Alright~~~

I just figured out that nothing changed that I suspected above. The only thing changed is this race has been RENAMED as "Run As One Singapore"....  https://www.runasonesg.com/

No more CSC Run By The Bay...

wow..... that is good information.... and quite a sudden change, must be a sudden decision... so this means the medal and singlet/tee will be renamed as well... no more streak race?? hahah...

not surprise, because they claim this race is endorsed by SportSG/ActiveSG...and a CSC vendor for sports (Civil Service Club Race provider for 2020)

there must be whistle-blowers...maybe they read sgRunners...saw uncle's concerns that was highlighted at SCSM 2020 forum thread..."cluster" issues with designated ruotes...how can...

uncle has officiated in MetaSport events under SG Triathlon sanctioned races in the past....MetaSport mostly expat management with local vounteer administration...maybe they don't know about local rules, regulations and guidelines on Covid-19 measures...

just as a matter of interest...MetaSport events carried on inspite of early Covid-19 days when all races cancelled because of Covid-19...

until local authority stepped in...then reacted...with further measures...

in COVID-19 and its impact on Races forum thread...uncle recorded...

sounded familiar situation...again...

otherwise, if there is no Authority to step in...don't be surprise..this event will carry on as usual...and hope that no one will be responsibile...because.."sorry, we didn't know of cluster could happen"...it will be too late already...

I think it is no brainer that crowds will be forming... that is already my (and I am sure many as well) concern back in August if you scroll the posts on page 1...

Metasports can't be that dense not to know that... most likely they are just trying their luck with the authorities and hope approval can be granted without having them to do the extra work of split timings.

side track...interesting note..

interest.jpg

was once known as...CSCRun_full_color--1024x539.png

 

their facebook was updated till August 10, and then...no updates...

wonder if it was cancelled or become a Virtual Race...because there was no sponsor by CSC for this event.."Run as One Singapore"... it has nothing to do with "CSC Run By the Bay"..right?

day.jpg

I think it is no brainer ....23 Oct - 1 Nov...

Instructions to choose your running slot...

I think it is no brainer....choose slots even if at 2400 (midnight)...wonder if there are organiser's "volunteers" available to prevent " crowd clustering"....because the event is organised with designated routes, and will be held responsible...if there is a Super Covid-19 Spreader...who could be a non-participant public who happened to be present there...joined in for the sake of sheer fun...

Always thought that mass event is to be avoided if possible...and this event is really a mass event "24-hour" 23 Oct - 1 Nov with hourly 30 person...hope that the public is announced to avoid the designated routes (just like as there will be closures of venue due to Run)...

maybe can get away with this one...just announced...

but is running (exercise) event a key life event? 🙄

metaSports...Ironman Asia...very like MultiSports Event organisers...

ceremonial protocol at Finishing Point...they want to hi-5 and cheer and always give out medals in-person...

but now is Covid-19 pandemic... 

virtual run is to post or contact-less delivery...of medals..

I think it is no brainer...why is it necessary to have "contact"ful between participants and volunteers...in fact, there shouldn't have any involvement of volunteers simply...if there were none of the designated routes as part of the race..

the Authority must show to the public (in the event of "cluster"), was there a Race Course Plan which lay out "measures of safe and social distancing"...because the public has the right to use the venue...any time...any day...

just like when you were to run (exercise) were at PCN or NP... there was no right of race organiser representing participants runners (exercise) to keep public away, because, public area is for public use, not for mass event race?...unless there was a permit issued by the Authority : closure due to permit like NP or LTA...

so far, any issued, by whom?

first the name change, colour orange doesn't change...more like orange tee can print new event...so are the entitlements...

next CSC is no longer there, the race FB ends in August with no announcement...speculation or what...cancel or postpone don't know...

suddenly this one has make many people puzzled...got this or not...volunteers...got designated routes - follow clockwise or counter-clockwise...now got timeslots 24 hour limit to 30...hourly...

truely, the run community is already has so many ???, bet that the public at large will be as blur as sotong to see...why on their favourite weekdays or weekends..23 Oct - 1 Nov ...runners (exercise) all never wear mask so many...by the hours...gather for in-person mass event...phase 3 CB approved by whom?

Reading between the lines, I am guessing that Metasports decides to go ahead with this event using the template from the CSC run and modify things a bit here and there and you have a new event. 

Quite possibly, CSC decides not to go ahead with the CSC Run for this year when they realised that an organised mass running event is not possible. 

So instead of just cancelling the event, Metasports decides to go it on their own.

Just my own speculation. :crazysmile:

meaning metasports most probably lost a major account call "CSC" and rename it as "One Spore" in support of Sport SG and ActiveSG...budget race...just uncle's own speculation...

wonder, at the designated venues, will there be tents to set up contact tracing measures (surely they will be)...we are still at DORSCON Orange..Circuit Breaker V. 3...

check 1: are you not feeling well, if not, don't show up, go and see a physician

check 2: at arrival, SafeEntry (Scan QR code) and register your presence "check-in"

check 3: temperature taking... wha why so hot?...WARM UP mah, why cannot...

check 4: at departure, SafeEntry (Scan QR code) and register your absence "check-out'

check 5: mask on after leaving "designated" venues...

24-hour, weekdays and weekends..23 Oct - 1 Nov

    • 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...
