Virtual Races/Challenges Around the World [2021]

Recommended Posts

uncle expects SCSM 2021 shall have Virtual Marathon with almost same price as before with crappy entitlements....with no add-ons option...sponsors' items...inluding tee and others like shoe bags etc..

and we pay on the expenses for our DIY virtual race nutrition and hydration needs...yes, toilet/washroom needs....of course, now no more embarrassment to "Drink Water from Toilet" because it is FOC option... 😁

however, uncle notices Virtual Race popular routes are getting more congested due to besides runners, Bikers also shared the same footpaths or even PCNs...uncle also use Cycling path because there are simply too many walkers/runners on Runners' Lanes...

hence, finding less crowded/congested race routes become a challenge...and "secret" ... 

coming March '21, uncle has expected at least weekly Virtual Race of 10K, HM and Marathon...

Japan...10K, 16K, HM and Marathon




Italy..HM (to be completed by Feb 28)




Australia..3 x marathons Challenge


left with 1. Great Ocean Road Running Festival 23KM...

remembering in 2020...Australia...Completed this one...



finisher medal was received 2 weeks ago....



and 10K Relay (on-going)


new Team sgRunnersFinal4! (4 x 10KM Relay)


Looking forward to March 2021....not forgettng...SCSM Virtual Club Leaderboard....500KM/month...target...😁

Some of these VR marathon events are really expensive - almost same price as at the event!

I fully agree…they are ridiculously expensive for a virtual run.

It shouldn’t cost more than $50 to send a shirt and medal. I know times are bad and race organizers need to get themselves out of the red, but they also need to be more reasonably priced.

I am not sure how many of them thought of approaching sponsors and further reduce and pass the cost savings to participants.

But even for SCSM who had sponsors, they charged $60 for a bag, shirt and medal.

SCSM was free for me cos I don't want the goody bag, medal or t-shirt.

If it was my first running event, I would have paid the price as a momento. I agree with their charge as they have to post out something which is a cost they did not have to incur when it is an onsite event. Also some places will require tax is paid on the postage.

What I disagree with is being forced to pay for the gifts and forced to accept it when I don't want it.

    • 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....😄
