thank you  @beast 

what @beast  did was simply fill-in Leg 6 (last Leg of the Team - sgRunner2020), after committing to Join Team...search sgRunner2020


team.jpg

 


both uncle and @beast extend invitation to all..

 

please note, your info (name registered at runkeeper) shall be made "visible"...at uncle's Race Roster...

not-private.jpg

and uncle's runkeeper app...because your Ekiden race activity becomes also "Friend's" activity..

meaning...uncle has become Event Organizer...working with Participants enrolled as Team members "Friends"...at the Race Roster platform...FOC...

personal.jpg

if you are not comfortable because your identity shall be "exposed"...so uncle suggest...

use your sgRunner's name to register....like Koh [Last Name] Papa [Name]...

also note: when you reply you are interested here...

we shall all acknowledge that you are in the Team(s)... uncle simply provides you the Team URL... and reveal the Code via PM to Register, that's all...FREE...

team-info.jpg

 

sgRunner (Mixed Team) is currently arranged for Ladies, and in the event of a sole lady participant, just 3-day before closing date...we shall voluntary fill-up sgRunner as Priority Team...

walk/jog/run/crawl/even rest to take a break along the way... as long as you can prefer to use Runkeeper apps (register/sign-in and then select your Ekiden Race event)

Virtual Race is the new normal in Running Race, so makes use of the chance to bond with each other, and importantly, Run for Fun, Run for Health, and Run for being a sgRunner over the years...

In 2020, ALL Races are cancelled because of Covid-19 pandemic...already there is evidence that in 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to cause an impact on 2021 Races.

If SCSM 2020 VR should have an Ekiden event, we can have fun there too, completing Marathon Distance...except that you have to PAY for SCSM VR Finisher Medals and other Race buffs...tee and merchandize..so wait out for 2020 SCSM VR announcement... 

This invitation is subjected to Team of 6, and if there is not enough fill-in, then we shall just cancel.

read Silva and Others at the other Forum HWZ EDMW...

Elites or just simply Passionate Runners like us...covid-19 pandemic will never be able to identify NOBoDIEs...all are affected because ALL RACES ARE CANCELLED...because of Covid-19...

anyway...sgRunner2020 can be the other SG Team that will be racing against Elites of the World...are you available? 3 more to make Team sgRunner2020...

ekidenf9f85ee841f753db.jpg

somemore we have our Tyre Lady with the Tyre...👍...now that is an Elite...can Arunkumar Satardekar "Elites"/NoBodies pull tyres as well?

btw @beast, do you want to use your Username as registered name at Runkeeper apps...please feel free to do so [option]...otherwise, uncle got to "blank-out" your name for privacy reason...lol

The launch of the ASICS World Ekiden 2020 coincides with the release of the latest ASICS research which shows, since the start of the COVID pandemic, 42 per cent of people who exercise regularly are finding it difficult to stay motivated without a goal to work towards.

This is why the ASICS World Ekiden 2020 aims to help people renew their connections and enjoy the physical and mental benefits of team competition and re-energise their love of sport and competing.

What you need to do: Join Team sgRunner2020

Virtually log your leg of the race on the ASICS RunKeeper app between November 11 and 22. Work hard and run fast as you strive to pass the virtual tasuki to your teammate!

Finishers will get a place on the ASICS global leaderboard.

Teams that enter and take part will also go into the draw for a chance to win an ASICS prize pack which includes shoes, shorts, t-shirt and socks.

uncle is looking forward to 3 more sgRunners to participate...5KM and 10KM...

10 more days to go...

Anyway, we are Friends in Runkeeper...you can invite us, and we simple +join from there...and further we interest from there... 

Thanks for reading and following up with the latest Virtual Ekiden event..ASICS World Ekiden 2020.

@Lady Ice, thank you for your confidence, just updated...Runner Autumn is in...

you can invite Other(s)...for either 5 km or 10km (Leg 4 or Leg 5)

since the event is competing with the Elites of the World, why not we run the PB for 2020 for all legs, and see how we ranked ourselves among the Best (Local) and (World)...

so, we might defer the Eco-theme or "tyre-pulling" effort till next time, let's have a consensus on this...Team sgRunner2020

Team sgRunner2020 vs SG Teams [Full 6-member and ready]

Don't miss this opportunity to bond and compete as ONE SgRunners...we still have 2 Legs...

    • uncle just want to share about cycling challege...like this one which starfinder and uncle is participating... so both of us registered for free 42km...and we received information for submission of results... So uncle started from 12am on 15 May according the Rules and Conditions... uncle completed within 24-hour...weather is very hot and humid...3 submissions...afternoon - next day before sunrise - and just this morning... submited and verified... ok, uncle got the eCert... so wait 5 July... cool right, FOC...just need 42KM (ride)... actually uncle "ride and run"... got this precious 42KM distance... upload for this one...today (16 May) is the last day uncle needs at least 1 FM distance to catch up to be #1... well uncle is now #1...lol... abuthen  Singapore is 13 hours ahead of Wisconsin, USA...so uncle got to be patient... just to be kiasu and extreme... uncle is preparing for a Half Marathon run tomorrow before 1pm...extremely extreme right? just for smugly reason to "how lian", why not? 😃 oh, almost forgot...something uncle checks daily... ok, past 350KM is a target for 700KM for May...mmm just need HM, FM x 1 or x2 or x3 to reach the Top of SCSM Virtual Club...aiya, looking forward...as uncle has posted previously...those who are handicap with the least number are the real ones..the rest are very "dubious" participants..just chase them for the fun...just catch them like Pokemon GO..pika pika... just need to zzZZZ, rest and recover...😃 We are in CB Paase 2 (Heightened Alert) from today. Wishes all to Stay Safe, Wear Mask and Stay Healthy. Avoid these places, as updated daily... https://ppvbc.github.io/
    • 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...😃
