@simonleng, your prediction comes true. I guess you must be joining? 

@RunningGuildJin Swee!!!! I hope i can join this event if i have the time :)

I also hope my other predictions will come true too. haaaa

  • Longer Mileage for the Event.   I hope there would be another category for the running folks to clock 200km in 5 weeks though (~40km per week). I opined that 32 km per week for 5 weeks is quite "doable" for most marathoners....
  • Event Start on Weekend.   Also, it would be best to start on 10 Oct (Sat) so that runners can start the event by clocking monster mileage  on Day 1. 
  • Organised Weekly Runs.   May be quite fun to break Craze Ultra 2019 route into 4 - 5 segments and runners can OTOT run these routes.

hmmmm..... I better start to condition myself for this event now... or else, i will be a laughing stock for not completing the monster mileage in Oct 20.

You guys StaySafe&StayHealthy!!! Cya!!! :)

Paging @AutumnRunner

Erm.... happy that the race went on... the ultra runners will be delighted...

Agree with @simonlengthat 160km for accumulative 5 weeks is do-able for most marathoners, i think to make this event really for ultrarunners, it should have a minimum distance per run...

Sorry if I am sounding rude here, but you guys should just end this already. It may be a fun tease a couple of years ago, but the man had already firmly stated that he is not interested in joining the event anymore, so please stop calling him out. Thanks.

I think 32km per week will still be quite a challenging commitment for many runners, especially casual/leisure runners like myself. 

I usually try to clock 8 to 10km, 2 to 3 times a week. That is only 30km max per week that I am willing/able to commit. I can't do 20-30km LSD like many of you over the weekend due to work commitments.

It may be easy peasy for many of you running enthusiasts who can afford the time or can prioritize running over commitments, but it isn't for me.

Also, I don't think organized weekly runs are feasible as gatherings of more than 5 are still not allowed. I am probably not getting what you mean exactly since you end of by saying runners can OTOT the routes.

For ultra runners' perspective, i guess running a 50km at one go is considered a LSD if u are training for an ultra race... just my guess since i cant do that for sure... hahah... 

this virtual race will allow many runners who are unable to complete an ultra to collect a medal this year with "160miles" carved in it under Craze Ultra...

hahahahaha @beast...

No offence taken @beast.  I paged @AutumnRunner not to tease him further, but to see whether he is interested.  The format is not purely an ultra, since it has some flexibility and allows participants to clock the mileage over a few runs.  I believe he has done similar races before?  This may hence interest him to 'take part' in a 'Craze' event at last.  Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Thanks for clarifying! Doesn't seem like he is interested in virtual runs too.

no worries @wonderfulblevic... i would think if i ever want to run in "Craze Ultra", i would really be targeting to run the ultra distance...

given that this year only has virtual race, i might have to close one eye and just run in a "race", else it will be "medal-less" in 2020.... hahah

From now till Oct, i am hoping for easing of measures, perhaps 10-15 pax can start to participate in organised event publicly.

 

what i have in mind for organised weekly is.... a certain designated running routes, and we can all run at that route at our own pace and share the experience online:)

Well, that is what the SCSM announced today is going to do... every week an optional designated running route around Singapore for 15 weeks... it will be 5 to 10km only though...

I think the shirt is nice 🤩

The only thing is that's its a little uhm...  well, I'm not too comfortable with the trend of some virtual races nowadays where you get a finisher shirt, for a race distance that you actually did in "installments". To be fair, it does read:

"100 Miles Challenge Finisher"
             rather than
"100 Miles Ultramarathon Finisher😜

A non-runner would probably be clueless on the difference, but as runners, I guess we can all share a wink on that.

-Just my opinion. 😅

Would suggest you to join if keen. But do read the organizer's terms and conditions carefully for this event.

Well you could run where there is less people around route which i always did. Anyway, the over sized finisher medal design is not out yet which is part of the entitlements beside finisher T upon completion.

    • The finisher medal has arrived... There will be some who will be selected for this one... Good luck and best wishes. 👌
    • well, if this is the run forum, and this is local race, then we talk appropriately about run, and this thread is on run challege - infinite distance - according to any runner's capabilities - anything from 100m...to extremes. So, we focus on this "smugly". and if starfinder, you can talk about multi-event, then you should go to non-running event, and share about your non-run passionate activities...and share your joy and experiences like Biking - OCBC Cycle Singapore 2021... uncle believes starfinder and uncle are looking forward for this weekend...Free 42KM Cycling...today 15 May till 13 June... Registration is FOC and the 42k Virtual Cycling Challenge entitlement is Tote Bag and Medal.  beast is entitled to his diverse opinion about extreme running, and if he is able do attempt the accumulatives of just enough (spread over a period of 4 weeks), then that will be a "smug" distance as the outcome . Just give yourself an opportunity to participate with enthusiasm (which uncle has offered like Virtual Ekiden or Virtual Cross Country 10KM Relay), why not try try and experience yourself with the Challenge of Extremes. Some more, uncle is offering to all an opportunity as Team Captain. As for starfinder, if you want to experience, then sign-up for the challenge, even if you can do 5KM or lesser, why not, weekly for only 4 weeks, 25KM is tee (but you must commit to payment). So how much "smug" contribution can you do in 4 weeks, is what this challenge is all about...that is the reason why we share and discuss here encouragingly and motivating one another...do you want to try try 😀 Update, besides opening this opportunity for sgRunners, uncle has been invited to Join Team...a Team Captain after reading this forum thread, PM uncle at instagram and offered uncle to Join Team.. This team is made up of all types of non-runners of Age Group 40-60+....Hikers, Walkers, Cyclists...as long as your have that pair of Iron Legs that can carry you to the extremes, why not. The Team Captain told uncle, with uncle's Extreme contribution of 700KM, the team can aim for Silver or even Gold...lol...they considered uncle as "Legendary" member...sounded like they just "caught" a Pokemon extreme runner...😆 If you are interested, uncle can also open this Team Iron Legs registration for you to join together as a Team for Challenging Silver and Gold level...and a Team Plague with your name and celebrate as Team effort. Perhaps, Sandy is sharing and discussing if there is a Team from sgRunners...and uncle offered the Challenge to ALL...yes, sgRunners can have a Team to take up the Run Challenge... Anyone? Otherwise, you are also offered to Join Team Iron Legs with the Age Group 40+ and above. so startfinder, are you ready to bike OCBC Cycle for a month of fun Virtual Cycle... of course, uncle is extremely ready for the Challenge.. uncle will clock both Ride (submit for OCBC Cycle) and Run (Unlimited Distance Challenge)...kill 2 Events again with 1 Passion in both Cycling and Running...Maximum is 4 submissions...so 10.5 KM x 4 weekly submission also can 😄    Importantly, don't let Covid-19 variants stop you from pursuing you passion, ALL Races Are Cancelled. Agree with starfinder, pursue your interests besides run, so open a thread discussion with the "besides run" activity, why not? As always, uncle will take up any challenge because it is interesting, achievable and fun always.
    • 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 different sports moderately. No need go to extremes but still can have the joys they bring!
    • latest: Uncle is registered Round Singapore Challenge... PM uncle if you are ready...😃
    • Let uncle share with you, a similar challenge like this one, is now in progress, but for Individual.. Cellcom Green Bay, Wisconsin (USA) 100miles in May Challenge.   uncle is the only red-dot representative.. how to submit result? daily submission from May 1... ending on May 16...submit as much as you can... current ranking... finisher entitlement..after the Chllange... how much did uncle pay [inclusive of shipment]? So uncle is currently competing and finishing an "overseas" virtual challenge from Wisconsin, USA...  BTW: 1 Mile is 1.61KM..so to catch with the # 1, uncle just needs to chong > HM (13.11 Mile), while 123 are chasing uncle....😄
