Rise to the challenge as we head into Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon first-ever evening race
November 29 at 6 PM – December 1 at 11 AM @F1 Pit Building1 Republic Blvd, Singapore
Once a year, the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon is an event where individual stories and personal battles converge, and people from all walks of life run alongside each other, cheered on by a supportive community.
This is a race where no one has to lose so someone else can win, it’s one where we root equally for everybody to cross the finish line. On this day, where the toughest obstacles are those in the mind, the camaraderie, community spirit, and support truly make a difference.
A marathon is one of the most challenging physical activities one can choose to participate in, providing extreme mental and physical challenges throughout the 42.195km.
Overcoming these challenges and then completing the run makes it all worthwhile. Crossing the marathon finish line is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding personal experiences a runner can enjoy.
The 21.1km, while it requires a less serious level of training, also brings with it its own set of challenges. Many runners use the Half Marathon as a stepping stone towards the Marathon but it’s a very testing run in its own right. Some of the world’s best long-distance runners focus their careers on the half and are able to set some incredible average speeds in this category.
The Half Marathon is a perfect run for those looking to step up from the 10km and test the long distance discipline.
10km is a category for runners of all abilities. The distance is perfect for beginners, though once again it also requires a decent training commitment for those new to the sport.
The 5KM run is a back! For non-long distance runners, this is the best distance suitable for improving or maintaining their general physical fitness. Additionally, 5KM is a popular distance to introduce new runners to start adopting a healthy lifestyle.
The Toyota Ekiden is a team relay, whereby five participants (of mixed or same gender) will compete in five stages of unequal distances, totalling 42.195km.
At the first changeover point, the second runner of the same team will receive a sash from the first runner; this relay will continue until the fifth / last runner of the team finishes the race.
Kids Dash is a non-competitive fun run for young runners aged up to 10, with no timing chips issued. The race is designed to encourage kids to participate in a running event and take up the sport while they are young. Kids are encouraged to come out to have fun and be part of this momentous occasion.
