what your views predictions for physical races ??

Recommended Posts

Now that 1 mth of 2021 is gone...and vaccine have started, what your views n predictions on when physical runs will start again - be it on trial basis or whatever...virtual runs too many hahaha 😆😅😂

to be pessimistic, maybe 2023....hahaha

my views :- (can strike toto if come true hahaha )

local races - maybe a trial will start in 3rd quarter 2021 ?? don't think they will start in 2nd quarter as vaccine rollout seem to be more of priority for now till end of 2021 at least. likely swab test for those trial participants too before start...likely flag off of 5 per batch, thus max participants may be only a few hundreds ??

overseas run - think the hk air bubble will start in Apr or May, once hk winter ended and the number of cases swindled down. the other countries can go but who can have so many leaves to cover all the quarantine unless u r retire or self employed 🤔😕😳 hahaha

which other countries will air bubble next ??

uncle as Technical Official in SA since Nov has been involved in Competition Races in recent months...250 Limit Per Session.. shall let you know if there will be Real Runs with ActiveSG's Covid-19 protocol..

in some overseas races uncle knows recently, yes, that would mean a booking of slots based on waves...with limit to few hundreds...

trial participants if refer to local community very likely not necessary, but from overseas, yes, because we have no idea which Covid-variant would be next to be "imported"...

border containment of covid-19 import is still an issue, no one would want to take a risk by opening up the border when local community Covid-19 is jumping....similarly...other countries may not wish to open up the bubble with now latest...required quarantined (before and after) or better still be "vaccinated"...with local sources saying that "priority" in vaccination may not be given to anyone travelling overseas

working, retired, self employed...what's is your reason for travelling?... if for the sake of Run (race), is this an essential factor that you must have...besides, would you think air travelling to go by past "mass" budgeted price or likely to be "individual" isolated seating...likely will have to book in advanced...

the new normal in 1 year and 1 month is to "stay alive", "stay strong", "stay social distancing", "wear mask"....Virtual Runs become an alternative to a new norm in keeping ourselves "stay strong" and yet be happy with our passionate Run (exercise) without Mask...

CB 1.0, CB 2.0, CB 3.0...as long as WHO does not announce we are Total Free from Covid-19.... we are still vulnerable to Covid-19...infinitely...

probably i am more optimistic on this and think that local races might start once vaccination has reached a certain percentage.... so i am looking at SCSM to be a physical race (reduced version). It could be for elites only or for a much much smaller pool of runners who need to show their vaccination cert.

    • Yes, almost a break coming 2 months, Pre-SEA Games qualifying races officiating , ultra distances running and practices are really very long hours...and you know uncle is back when you start hearing uncle time to "howlian" some personal accomplishes... Team Performance... 10KM Team Relay vs Global Teams. Congratulations, Team sgRunners have maintained Top 10 out of 24 Teams who participated in the Relay 10KM Global Challenge.  We are Top in Asia and we are in sub4 hour. Well done and thank you. 👍
    • According to uncle-aka-"future-trend reader and fortune-reading teller"... Career and Wealth are stable, especially love in general, except special attention to be paid to health issues... OSIM...you mean this one... buying for SOH gf's mother on Mother's Day...thanks to mutual understanding due to crisis in March... and for SOH's mother on Mother's Day...enjoy a lot of tenderness and love.. of course, SOH needs one also for his active career lifestyle...as UA World Ambassador and get paid handsomely...  start from monthly installment SGD 99.. quite unlike his usual style...aiya...still got High Court pending case...WIN big means  1) Millions in Loss Income compensation for having to forfeit having to go previous SEA Games even if SOH has qualified, because of Ashley Liew's Court Case. Remember in previous post..credibility of a National Sports Association who supported Ashley... XXX - corrected... National Sports Authority who supported Ashley in the first place, "thoroughly investigated". 2) Ashley Liew appeal against Expert Witness (The Truth) and Expert Witness (Compensation for SOH's Loss of Income) and what if Ashley Liew LOST in both appeals. Kena pay big big, even a layman in non-Law also know, "Pay the Price for not keeping your mouth shut when you lose, tsk tsk tsk". 3) Expect "National Sports Authority" to issue a Press Statement... S****  SOH 4) SOH vs "National Sports Authority" next saga...why you reject my application to go to SEA Games ah? Mere speculations on the future outcome...eat 🍿....zzzz and dream on 🍿...because the TRUTH hurts.  
    • uncle can, and was thinking about forming a team as Team Captain, but, uncle thinks there is none here...😲 in March April  Just completed a virtual full marathon distance... going for next one this weekend... shall be starting Virtual FM from May 8-30... BTW, this Virtual Race is FOC to sign-up, and can win prizes with lucky draw.. https://www.sunshinecoastmarathon.com.au/atlas-events-virtual-series    
    • the distance looks quite scary... 1680km for the minimum Bronze standard.. If we can get 10 members, each member have to run 168km in a month meaning around 42km per week.... not impossible.. just that need to find at leas 10 members who will commit to a 42km per week running schedule.... 
    • I noticed even his recent facebook post on the OSIM chair that he had seemed to be quite unlike his usual style...
