THE WORLD ATHLETICS CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP, BATHURST 21 GLOBAL CHALLENGE (1 FEBRUARY - 21 MARCH 2021)

Recommended Posts

@kohpapaI see sgRunner still have 1 Leg 4 unassigned. Can you assigned that leg for me so that I can help complete it?

As for Team sgRunnersUnited, I am OK to take on another leg of 5km or 7.2km. Don't think I want to attempt 10km at a more competitive pace...

Team sgRunner [Mixed], the race has begun...

Leg 1 and Leg 2 have completed...Leg 4 [5K] is not assigned...please register by Monday evening...otherwise, uncle shall register and complete by Tuesday.

Again, even though many Teams have registered, but Complete as Teams are not many...counted so far...less than 100.

As long as we are United and Complete as a Team, we are already top 100.

Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed) shall start from Thursday. Leg 1: 5K we shall have @Lady Ice [UK Time] to start.

Note: Challenge for 10K for those who have not attempted. Just go for it. Don't worry. We have 3 Teams to be considered for Ranking. 1 of them is already top 50. We just want to have fun and see if all 3 can be at least in top 100 [more or less confirmed by merely Completion]

Any unassigned Legs in Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed), uncle will gladly take over by latest this coming Saturday night. Nov 22 is the last day. So encourage Friends, if you can do 2 Legs, why not challenge yourself also.

10km Run completed - very wet, very muddy. It has been raining a lot. Shoes very wet. Thank goodness there are holes in my shoes.... though got a little to much mud in them at one pointimage.thumb.jpeg.812b8736693a95801c2bbe807224a10e.jpeg

yes, sotong @Lady Ice, we see water [wet, very muddy]

Weather since yesterday [SG 11am onwards]...

weatherffb6e408c5ed89f2.jpg

every member would expect that, if there should be wet weather for the whole week, there is possibly:

1. Delay your run until a drier day.
2. Run slowly and face the Rain headstrong.
3. No Run if the week is completely wet.

let uncle shared the Sunday yesterday weather...

Hot in the early morning...wet after that...

42.2KM Marathon Virtual Race (Rain or Shine):

Morning great run...

uncle being cheered by...chickens

greeted by otters...

2 hours later...

Run slowly and face the Monsoonal Rain headstrong... 

Uncle's road run shoe sole wet and came off just 10KM away from uncle's home base stn [charging of battery, hydration and nutrition]

uncle's favourite Nike vaporfly next %....carbon-added sole dropped off...

shoe.jpg

and replace with trail running shoes. 

Cut-off time of 8-hour (7am - 3pm). Just Complete.

10KM Ekiden Virtual Race - @Lady Ice sharing....Just Complete.

Team sgRunner2020 [Completed] with Top 50 Ekiden World of Elites.
Team sgRunner [To be Completed soon] because we have a Full Team.
Team sgRunnersUnited - Unassigned Legs are still available. This one has Challenges offered in 10K. Challenge - Longer Distance in 10K [Endurance] and Faster Time in 5K. It is also a Challenge if you can also take 2 Legs and run within 3-day.

Safety: No Run if the week is completely wet. Better be Safe..

During Covid-19, when all run races are cancelled, only virtual races are offered, they are actually real run virtually/globally, if you complete the Challenge. Statistically, 2 out of 3 Virtual Races....Never Complete, the Challenge is To Complete.

The best is - these Virtual Race Challenges are FOC and we are one of the World' Elites Team for Virtual Ekiden Marathon Team Challenge. 😄

Enjoy the fun and Complete the Challenge.

After that...you should be ready for SCSM [Grand Finale] coming next Friday after this week...

yes, @beast , Own Time Own Timing...if @starfinder you decide... you can start anytime anyplace...from now...if you are ready and the weather looks great today...

status.jpg

we have a completed Team sgRunner...so we can have a Team Result soon...

again we must give every Team Member proper time to rest, recover and have their own personal commitments....especially on individual Essential Tasks, Commitments and Issues to be settled on weekdays.

Thursday [UK Evening Time] is actually Friday [Morning]...So we must give @Lady Ice, a priority on herself...that is why...Thursday should be a recommendation...

Weekend is coming and some of us also have SCSM Virtual Race warmups...especially if SCSM [Grand Finale] is starting from next week...yes, there are some here who are doing Double UP! Challenge is [21KM + 10KM].

bestc96e7f0dfb811a5d.jpg

we hope that Team sgRunner and Team sgRunnersUnited can join Team sgRunner2020 to hold on to the Top 100 of the Best of World's Ekiden Elites.

Always Run SoH Fast!...👍

Tips - Walk through your route - Measure - Test Run...

Runkeeper would have documented all of our Team Friends activities...

know.jpg

and can understand why @starfinder you are actually ready to go for Team sgRunnersUnited, because you are ready...

Quote

Sure. I will do the run tomorrow or wed, when the weather permits.

so just go for the "feel"...if you can do it today...just chong lah!...

for uncle just another 10 KM in next 4 hours is 300 KM for November...and for you are on path to 100 KM monthly achievement...👍

of course, uncle is having fun challenging the endurance elites at SCSM Virtual Club..

ranking.jpg

so, the tip.. week-end marathon distance and weekday 1/2 marathon distance, real or virtual, makes you top 50...lol!

@kohpapa Uncle, I think we may not hit top 100 in overall ranking. But top 10 in teams from Singapore still possible lah.

aiyo.. the race has not ended...

importantly, when Covid-19 when all races are cancelled...we can still talk about to be in top 100 World's Best Ekiden Marathon Challenge today...

remember Covid-19 Challenge months ago...SCSM Virtual Club (mid-Sept)...and now ASICS World Ekiden 2020 (1-week old)

Next week SCSM [Grand Finale]...are you ready to take on SCSM GF [10KM], SCSM GF [21KM] or SCSM GF [Double Up!]..

most of us are preparing for that one... 5KM, 10KM and 7.125KM are just merely warmups...

just have fun lah! bro...Just Complete a Virtual Race. Most of the Other Teams cannot even complete...some cannot even get started...

Attention : Team sgRunner. It seems like after completing 10KM of Leg 5, the Race Roster has refused to update. 

not-counted.jpg

uncle believed that might be an "infringement"...2 days ago, uncle did this Leg 5, and had an incomplete at 7KM. Thinking back, the system may have override the previous one today. So, we may have a DNQ status, sorry Team. So, we may have to call off and suspend further runs to Team sgRunner.

Let's focus on Team sgRunnersUnited (Mixed). Even though we can start anytime anyplace. but, we must not commit any "technical fault" based on uncle's experience on error do not Stop when not completing the required distance.

Rest well, we deserve a Global Top 100 ranking right now and we can even do better.

The weather was very hot and humid today, so Virtual Race is very real, we cannot control time and weather pattern. We just have to complete and Stop only when the Distance is completed.

Uncle will take a recovery Rest on Tuesday and Wednesday. If anyone of you are ready, OTOT.

Run only for Team sgRunnersUnited👍

We shall remain anonymous this time, because The World's Elites are watching us. They are "spying" on our sotong legs especially the speedo sotong one...  @AutumnRunner ...

Uncle, how to have complete when you finished at 10 km? Don't really understand but at least we have 1 team already completed.

Saw SStar Fitness have several teams and their timings are quite good.

    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
    • @sandy620, message uncle if you are interested, we can talk freely there, for sure, uncle is interested to form a team...for 300 members...do you really need so many? more like for good enough to gather school kids since school holidays are coming... Sad to say, here we have a lots of event thread starters, race recommendations, race reviewers (past and present) not much of participants in running except uncle and a few runners who can do beyond 16km...because of Covid-19, all races are cancelled, so motivation is curbed, and outdoor activities are "not as active as before". maybe you and uncle can do 1680KM... already uncle said monthly 700km, and how many then can you contribute as the other member?..maybe we need only 4-5 members. btw, local virtual races/challenges do not have really appealing to uncle, like sponsor is who? Local fee in SGD price, uncle could look overseas races for more affordable value.. like...for $30++....NB running tee (black), NB finisher tee (white), participant's medallion, a poncho... just need for 42KM... Seoul Marathon 2021...so cool...no idea what is offered for round Singapore one...uncle got high expectation one..😄 uncle is currently exploring Sao Paulo, Brazil...will let all know next time... As uncle has said, PM uncle on your interest...uncle does not talk much, just execute and show results...completes and finishes... 😄
    • ahhhh so busy schedule... was initially thinking that maybe we can form a team *opss* HAHAHAH to join the round Singapore one hehehehehe
    • Yeappp HAHAHAH self challenge!! But we can get more than 10 members if we want... saw most of the teams from this event, some of them got more than 100 members!
