Decathlon Virtual Run 2021 [31 March - 15 May]

Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing! $15 sounds very worth it considering all the stuff you will be getting.

Only drawback is you have to visit their stores twice, once to collect your race pack and then your finisher pack after that.

Yes, the price is very reasonable. I paid only $13.5 since i have passion card.

What is attractive about this race, at least to me, is that it spreads across 3 mths and recommend the type of runs to be done. I will be keen to know what is the route they will be suggesting for the 3rd leg.

I feel that the 1 month to complete to complete each leg is too generous. I know this is probably more for those who had not been running regularly to encourage them to run more, but just needing to clock 5km a week is a really setting a very low bar. 

If the event sees good number of sign ups, I hope they will come up with another edition with a tighter requirement.

7km routes are quite eay to carve out. They mention "routes" so I suppose it will be more than one, probably one every region. My guess is possibly one in the city (Maybe The Promontory to Marina Barrage and back) and one at ECP.

maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)...

yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals...

given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary...

from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event.

Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88

2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)...

the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...)

because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌
