last year justrunlah connect virtual race..register $10...never say how much will be entitlements when u really want to go...run with buddy..run with team...and then all the add-ons charges shall come..

so they subscribe to a 3rd party event management website..ontraxk..

mass run event requires approval and lots of protocol like Active Sg, MOH..and latest is 250..includes participants and staff.

Monthly session...likedat uncle can run multi sessions marathon challenge...DIY..foc

I think if the authorities approve, this will be a litmus test of how other races are going to be organised. 4000 is not a lot for Sundown, but there are many other races with historically lower participation numbers. Such races may be allowed to proceed if this Sundown is successfully done.

I believe there may be other requirements for the runners, such as proof of vaccination?

Nevertheless, I think it is a good start.

if the authorities can approve cross-border visits (events here depend lots on international participants), and when  most here/overseas are vaccinated...and really there is no mutation covid strain..then ok

virtual challenge/race...same theme/marketing almost like in 2020/2021...justrunlah! connect...

previously posted by uncle here...

now at ontraxk website..

4000 for current 250-limit per day... is 16 sessions... the assumption is the authority must have allowed 500-limit per event day in the coming days... so 4000 / 500 is 8 sessions or per day. So no surprising...4000 must not be factored as 4000/day.

Ultramarathon 55KM is offered.. 55km run-in person within 8-day/8-sessions within an official route....very similar to Round As One Singapore...6KM or 12.9 KM...achievable with cumulative 8-sessions attempts..

lol...merchandizing marketing...upgrade $10 to popular entitlements..

sundown1.jpg

next will be this and that...previously $8 registration per person-event..

connect.justrunlah.com-Sundown-Run-2020-

don't end up paying "race entitlements" to top-up with your run event 😀

With a new Covid-19 variant strain, and 1 locally death recorded for even those who are vacinnated, and the closing of borders of the world with India (the source of the new Covid-19 variant strain)...of course, those countries suspected of having the new Covid-19 variant strain including Singapore...

let uncle share with all, FM Virtual Race experience [a submssion and not a challenge with multiple submission]...

To do a virtual FM in May [like in previous Sundown Run-in place editions], often on inter-monsoonal period, the weather is often unpredictable wet with rain and then dry with sun coming out fast with the parting rain clouds, making the place feel like a suana - hot, wet, humid...

May-1-2021-FM.jpg

 

faces afternoon rain at start...wet and soggy...change of gear and wear with a cool shower after 16KM with a meal... the rest of the journey was not so bad, cooler evening but lots of people because of Public Holiday...Tanjong Rhu, Marina East, Sports Hub...

streetmap.jpg

 

uncle took part in a one-session submission only...within a 48-hour window..

May-1-2021-countdown.jpg

if the event would have in a 1-day window period [like cut-off time], 2 out 3 would have DNS or DNF...

Virtual Race/Challenge DIY is indeed, especially for FM is no play play...need to plan logistics and train with practices...overcoming the "wall of china" at HM and FM...

you guys had being there before [experiences]...and will definitely know...without logistics such as road closure/nutrition/hydration/medical support...DIY event Virtual Challenge/Race...is indeed very "siong"..😃

With the number of new covid cases and possible spread in communities, I have a feeling this Sundown physical race may not proceed....

Uncle's personal experiences in Virtual Races [Ultra Challenge/FM/HM/10KM/5KM/10KM Team Relay/Ekiden Relay], find this Sundown Marathon event is indeed a Virtual Experience, not really Run-in Person.

sundown20986658ab8fb312.jpg

ONTRAXK.COM is just a Virtual Race/Challenge platform of Official Sundown Marathon Singapore. 

Upload of Results to the ONTRAXK.COM is via Strava or Runkeeper (which uncle has posted previously using Runkeeper).

can I do the marathon from 415 and end before 8am?

This could be the Virtual Challenge Slot [period of about 4-hour window per day], how much distance can you achieve, capture and submit as result.

If uncle can walk 1-hour with about 3KM, then 4-hour would mean 12km. If slow run or jog, then x1.5...that would be 18km. But, if tempo run, that would be 24KM [Pace at 6KM/hour]

Up to Maximum of 4-day, a walker can complete a Marathon distance challenge.
Up to Maximum of 3-day, a jogger can complete a Marathon distance challenge.
Up to Maximum of 2-day, an abled runner can complete a Marathon distance challenge.

Base on uncle's ability to complete a session of Full Marathon Virtual Race [6:50:37] with Runkeeper apps, uncle would have taken a 2-day Challenge Slots for Sundown Marathon.

Of course, probably tie up with buddy system or Get a group or Team Relay participation marketing gimmicks from Sundown, and again, Finisher Medals, merchandise on Monthly tees with different themes, not forgetting Finisher Tees... how about themed Masks...shoe bags FREE if you register with Family...add-ons means top-up $$.

Aiya, why waste monthly event registration of $10, when you can have FOC registration at Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon Virtual Club.

This one for May 2021. Some more, the platform is "synced" with major apps, no need to upload results...

No need to pay registration another $10 to be ranked in the Leaderboard...

uncle having fun daily, being "chased" and "chasing" global runners...what the...looks like uncle got to chong 30KM to catch up with the 2 japanese wannabees...and that Skier from Canada [yesterday ranked with a 100KM] how can in past 2 days in May you must have ski and not run Ms Jodie Gauld...

But, never mind, uncle will chong a Full Marathon this weekend.....*2021 Seoul Marathon [Virtual] FM...😀

Tips on staying on top of Monthly SCSM Virtual Club Leaderboard...2 HMs Distance and 1 FM weekly...

In the Month of April 2021...

April-Rank.jpg

Surely by Month end, there will be 10+K of Global wannabees "chasing" uncle always... Choooong ahh...everyone...😄

BTW, almost forgot to "howlien" uncle's motivation to run Virtual FM...

In every race event, there should be Event Tee Sponsor.

For example New Balance for the 2021 Seoul Marathon, 2021 London Marathon and 2021 NYC Marathon, or Adidas for 2021 Boston Marathon.

But, for 2021 Sundown Marathon, who is the sponsor?

Sundown Marathon indeed has taken the "Virtual Challenge" format with Challenge, Highest Distance and Upload Your Runs.

[Virtual] - 2021 Sundown Marathon is more like it..😀

    • 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...
