It’s Ours to Run
The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon™ (SCSM) is a running 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.
It 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.
While we are preparing ourselves to experience this world-class event this November, here are five things everyone should look forward to!
1) First-ever SCSM evening race experience
SCSM was thrilled to announce that the 2019 edition of the race will upgrade the athlete experience with a new 6:00 pm evening flag off on Saturday 30 November for the Marathon, Half Marathon and Ekiden distances while shifting to a three-day event format. The Kids Dash will take place on Friday 29 November while the 5K and 10k races will take place on Sunday 1 December providing a distance for everyone.
These steps were taken to further the appeal of the race for participants and spectators and are a significant step towards the goal of SCSM being inducted into the illustrious Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM), a series of the largest and most renowned marathons in the world.
2) A visual tour for all runners!
Runners, locals and also run-cation visitors, can expect to experience a visual tour in the heart of the lion city for this year’s SCSM. Cultural and historical diversity to lush greenery and a buzzing metropolis that includes modern marvels such as the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, and The Singapore Flyer will accompany the runners throughout their race.
3) You will never be alone
It won’t be a lonely battle for the runners as the organisers are introducing the all-new spectator zones! There will be a total of 27 spectators zones expected. These zones will feature a myriad of lifestyle and entertainment offerings across the island for the spectators to cheer you on. With that, it will create a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere for both runners and supporters.
4) A Roaring Front: SCSM 2019 Finisher Medal
Organisers of the SCSM recently unveiled the official medal design for this year’s Marathon category, a second rendition of the “Bold Gold” series. The medal design is fronted by the Merlion, a unique yet deeply-rooted symbol of Singapore, with key elements of the city’s iconic skyline in the background.
