Congrats @kohpapafor finishing your marathon.

1) Shouldn't you be running 42.2km for it to be accepted as a marathon timing? How come only 42.1km?

2) So for the Virtual Melbourne and Kyoto Marathon, must die die use their app to record the timing? Thanks for sharing the existence of these virtual marathons btw.

1) The organizer cut everyone who exceeding 42.2 and beyond to 42.1... maybe 42.175 to be precised...

2) Yes, only less than 5,000 for this one...In fact, uncle believes the Virtual Melbourne Marathon ("shared" Horizon platform like KLSCM 2020 VR) registration is still opened, so you can try provided you are using wearable devices to sync with App..

vs limited on 7,100 for online Kyoto Marathon, with more than 3/4 are reserved for residents of Japan.

TATTA app (in Japanese language only) is accessible for Japan Citizens and Residents because ALL can register with their unique IDs and PWs as Authentic Runner's ID...

which uncle is not a Resident. You can look at TATTA app as "Japan Runners' Virtual Club" platform...which Participants can access or "register to events" even In-place Runs can be FREE or PAID attendance at their nearest Hometown or Regions for any run events. 

Also, in the last 24 hours, uncle stumbled into another Lobang...Tokyo Marathon Foundation run series from December for 8 months, with Virtual Runs with a chance for 2022 Entry for lottery opportunity...

So TMF's Run as One will make this available outside Japan with the first 2 Challenges (opportunities) offered to Local Residents only using Runkeeper App...

So they tie up with a china-based App 广州悦跑信息科技有限公司

uncle booked this Tokyo Marathon Foundation slot for Outside Japan Virtual Races...

you cannot find this app on Google Play but the app only to be downloaded from their website...

Again, uncle stumbles into the "Chinese Runner's Virtual Club" and realise that...uncle could register to register Free in China's Virtual Marathon Runs like Guangzhou/Wuhan Marathons with JoyRun App with the option of add-ons Merchandize of Medal, Tee and Shoes (which is never possible, unless uncle got a chinese home address to be delivered for a fee).

Global Virtual Challenges and Races, so many...looks like uncle can do Marathon Virtual Races almost every Weekend for Spring/Summer 2021  just to be "guest runner" in China and Japan. Only towards Sept/Oct, will be "guest runner" in Europe and America when they begin their Virtual Marathon Series Fall/Winter 2021. Among them will WMM Global Club Virtual Races.

Note: Until Covid-19 vaccine is available and every one is accessible to it...Virtual Races 2021 are aready geared up very much in Japan and China in March onwards after Lunar New Year...😃

Thanks for sharing about the China virtual runs, @kohpapa. I will go explore the options there.

By the way, you can explore vpost or ezbuy as an option for shipping from China. They will provide you with a China address to their China warehouse and you can ship to Singapore from there.
