This is another hybrid race where its a physical race but booking of certain timeslot is necessary.

Many of the races are implementing the booking of timeslots. Not sure if this is going to be the new normal moving forward, even after the pandemic. I am sure this will be effective in easing congestions at race site or during the race routes, but it adds another layer of pressure if you aren't fast enough during the registration and you are stuck with less ideal timeslots.

I remember last year there were quite a number of positive comments regarding this race, especially on the part on using their app..

I remembered that too, so for the sake of a unique race experience I will consider signing up for this.

Again, I am going to harp on the price - why am I charged more for running a longer distance, if there is no additional race support like in a physical race, and I am getting the same exact entitlements as the shorter distances?

I think booking of time slots are feasible for such virtual races, where the participants may not be a lot.

But for popular physical races which can have many thousands of runners, time slots may not be feasible. Personal feel is unless majority of local population is vaccinated and there is solid clearance test for overseas visitors, local races will still not happen.

Had ran it last year... its pretty similar to a virtual race except that u hear an additional voice from handphone over certain parts of the route. The fees is pretty high I would say.

A few weeks back, I was considering to join this event, given positive reviews from last year - But I was undecided on distance to sign up for.

Just realised now that this event has been postponed due to the tightened measures:-

from last year to last week...allowed maximum 8

then 5 from this week...allowed maximum 5

today is 2 only...only for essential activities, definitely not Run (Exercise)

Uncle expected on this announcement...MetaSport is a multi-sports event organizer including run...

the organizer simply cannot have opted for any "different waves or slots" like in previous year...

the norm of Covid-19 is still the same - Virtual Race, Anytime, Anyplace, Alone...perhaps, that one is still open for your participation, Anytime, Anyplace😃

I completely forgotten about registration for this run.

You can still sign up for the event though, but I will leave it till the new dates are being decided.

Agree - Should wait for new dates to be set. Though it feels like it will be a long wait :unknw:

Managed to train up for this race but safety and health is definitely more critical at this period. stay safe everyone and let's wait for the new date, likely they will announce only after the Ph2 Heightened alert period.

    • We shall be ending in 3 days... having committed to 700km... Just sharing on the perspective as an ultra runner and how "monthly mileage" helps...LACTOSE THRESHOLD...         LACTOSE THRESHOLD is not about "being how lian" or "being smug about leaderboard"...it is about staying discipline, be consistent in daily mileage according to Target mileage [weekly/monthly], lots of patience with proper REST and RECOVERY, and must be at a perpetual state of "injury-free" status at all times... Giving up...Fatigue, Pain and Hurts are always there...Weather Condition...Day/Night...Career Commitment...when there is a better priority in life, then why commit to LT? Another Life-Time experience for uncle while we enter into "Covid-19" Endemic - Covid-19 regularly found among particular people or in a certain area - from June 21, 2021. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay LT (Long Term) in Runs...😄      
    • Singapore Athletics nominates Soh Rui Yong for 2021 SEA Games. Will he get to go? https://themonitor.sg/2021/06/14/singapore-athletics-nominates-soh-rui-yong-for-2021-sea-games-will-he-get-to-go/ Reality check: However, whether he gets the nod to travel and represent Singapore would still be reliant on the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC ) selectors, and if the SEA Games takes place at all. Said Soh, “I started training for the 1500m this year for the first time in eight years because we haven’t been able to travel for marathons since last year, and we haven’t had any marathons held locally. 
    • 1. Visit Lady Ice in London and run the London Marathon there. 2. Hold on to it and try to get a slot for a physical run somewhere that Aegean Airlines would fly to before May next year. Is there a Aegean Airline office here in Singapore to redeem your free ticket?
    • 1. I think it would look good on SNOC if they decide to show graciousness and put the past behind them - SRY already did anyway, and made amends with the new SA committee. There isn't any negative news surrounding SRY for the past 2 years too, as he seems like he stopped competitive running for a while. I don't see any reason not to accept the nomination based on merit. That said, I am slightly disappointed that he is not going for a marathon anymore. He was sort of a motivational figure to me and inspire to go for more marathons when he was the SEA games champions in 2015 and 2017. 2. I believe the eventual consensus would be to agree to let Vietnam postpone the game to next year, when the Covid situation should be more or less stabilized already after most of us are vaccinated. Like the Olympics or Euro cup, not likely that these sports events get cancelled. But I am a little amused that Singapore actually step forward to volunteer to host the game if Vietnam is unable to, always the "ostentatious" image that our government wants to portray to our neighbours...
