uncle kept actively in SCSM Virtual Club...many remained "active" too...

scsm-VC.jpg

uncle's resolution in SCSM Virtual Club is to be Top 50... again, uncle "overachieved"...

so uncle got to set a higher resolution for 2021.. Top 20...

there will always be Virtual Challenges with Prizes...so just participate and WIN...otherwise, keep earning more e-badges...

so far, with days counting down to end of January...

jan-VC.jpg

uncle maintained top 20...

in recent days/weeks, uncle seemed to have been trailing/leading "Rachel See" - Singapore Woman Marathoner in action...

yap...sometimes we were mere 100 metres from each other...other days - half marathon away...and as of now ... we are mere...less than 15KM...lol...

well, ending January tomorrow with days 29, 30 and 31...

notice... most of top 20 are already in their 500th km...

so, as "Rachel See" and uncle seems to be just positions away...sometimes uncle leads..sometimes "Rachel See" catches uncle with mere metres...

so, uncle is going to have fun with "Rachel See" and the rest of Top 20:

29/1 - 10KM
30/1 - 21KM
31/1 - 42KM Virtual "Kyoyo Marathon" 2021...🤫

ending January 2021 with a bang...

5000km in 2021? uncle is on track...just change shoes...all NIKE....aplhafly, vaporfly, and zoom fly...anything that can make uncle flies when uncle runs...😀

uncle just wants "to have fun"...with ALL Bi/Triathletes (multisports), Individuals who are under the All Sports category...

Jan-30.jpg

according to plan, 10KM, 21KM....

FYI: Tri fitness -

tri.jpg

tri who fitness to "bike" 40KM is good enough for 10KM in "run"...

tomorrow, guess what uncle is going to "blitz"......

rest well everyone...tomorrow is just another "virtual" challenge for uncle to end January 2021...

have a great weekend....everybody 😀

update: 30 hours to go...Jan 2021 ending...

Jan-303cfd501f5367eb2a.jpg

ok...interestingly....looks like Runners/Walkers/Bikers of SCSM Virtual Club 2021 all gearing up....chong up the leaderboard....

must uncle aim for 600KM on last day of Jan 2021?...😄.. if bike no problem...

but, if for Running category...

 run-jan-2021.jpg

even chong another 42KM...there is another "Rachel Koh"...

no wonder the expression - even my grandmother can rather faster than you... hope "Rachel Koh" is not...😆

that is why, uncle has daily ups and downs with 2 "Rachels" @ SCSM Virtual Club

maybe uncle needs to have sunrise, noon and sundown sessions for 2021 Run with the "Rachels" Virtual Challenge for the next 5,000KM journey remaining in 2021...👌

But it's B.A.A. medals leh, not the event medal, though both have the same unicorn logo.

It's like Sports Singapore giving out VR 5K, 10K and half marathon medals, and then putting SCSM VR marathon together and say it belongs to a series.

But uncle happy can liao lah.

VR medals of SCSM...indeed...crappy...

scsm-medal.jpg

if you talking about this and comparing this to BAA...agree...on sale at carousell...

the one that uncle discussed about BAA is limited special package offered only for 3 months, and it is not a VR series, it is a #finishSTRONGCHALLENGE... because of Covid-19, these races were cancelled...and the medals were the exact ones "unicorn" medals, even if you should go to 2020 Boston Marathon for 5K/10K/HALF...run in person..."unicorn" medals...

BAA-2020947f4eb811425976.jpg

let's move on... when Covid-19 pandemic is around...when there is no overseas trip for any race...so uncle finds that "virtual race" events are fun and motivating, and if the price is not right for your budget...then you decide what's your best interest...

yes, uncle had been to New York...and been to Boston...but never got involved in "marathon" during my youthful years because of work and family...so felt that if uncle had then was in Boston, New York and even Chicago (the Windy City)...uncle should have "raced" marathon...abut then...complete the 6 Majors Marathons...sibei ShoiK!...while in US then...but what is MA-RA-TH-ON?

now with "spare" income for passion, hobby for "run" and of course, uncle's retuning to this Forum Thread is to share about "Virtual Race" that are Overseas and Locals...intention also to let others know more about Virtual Challenge/Race...participation and earned medals because completed "Virtual Race" distance...

price is no objection to uncle because having to "travel" overseas to race currently is not possible, and even the "medals" collections are really extrinsic motivation...otherwise, get e-Badges... which uncle got almost hundred e-badges.. so decide to collect limited edition...with fond memories which "once-in-a-lifetime"...dream comes true..

Besides, overseas "prize entitlements" are denominated according to their countries currencies...so it is affordable in their countries according to their cost of living... so if you say Singapore race denominated in SG is "affordable", in other countries like thailand or malaysia it will be considered as "wha, bloody expensive + overseas postage"...for a SCSM Virtual Race medal...who is so s***** want to register  a kid's race 3KM or 5KM

scsm-2020.jpgmore than 1000 thai baht.....tak boleh...200 MYR with postage...

 

"cheap" and "expensive" is relative...local races (virtual and real) uncle's personal opinion...not really "interesting and rewarding"...

That is very awesome! how many days will it take for 1 trip?

Riding with me will be a 70+ lady and a 13 year old girl. So will need to go at the rate they go at.

IN 2019 it took me about 16 days to cover 980 miles from UK to Trieste in Italy

Uncle, I think you got to pay 1,500 yen to enter the virtual HM or FM to be one of the runners for a guaranteed, non-complimentary race entry.

You have to pay them in order to enter a lucky draw for a prize that you need to pay again to get it. I thought last time balloting for a slot was free. Now you have to pay money and run a race in order to earn your chance at the ballot. Plus end 2021 still don't know can travel or not.

Yes, you have read the instructions well. uncle has signed up for the FM.

balloting for a slot was free in the past...please read someone who had the experiences in the past....

The difference with this is that...Do you want to signup for Virtual Marathon (fee is 1,500 Yen)... with the condition...

when registered, uncke was asked what is your likely HH:MM:SS...

if "meeting personal target"...you are given a  "random draw" for a guaranteed, non-complimentary race entry [2021]....

BTW, in Joyrun "TMF" race... "random draw" or "ballot" for a guaranteed, non-complimentary race entry [2022] is paid...only if completing 10KM/Half MarathonKM [Virtual - Free], add-on Medal and (+) Ballot costs Chinese yuan 159. Otherwise, if you choose not to, then Virtual Race [Virtual Race is always Free], add-on Medal of Chinese yuan 60 is only for 5KM only.

TMF1.jpg

The ballot for January [held in December] for 10 for 8,000 Entrants (ballot). 🙄

As for Feb and March "RunonOne", uncle opted register 5KM Virtual Race [Free] for add-on Medal Chinese yuan 60.

Yes, uncle is aware of now, Balloting is not free after all, with condition like having Virtual Race entry...especially if you sign-up for Half/Full Marathon, very likely you are interested for a guaranteed, non-complimentary race entry.

    • 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....😄
