Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon is back with its Training Runs this year. For the first time since 2019, SCSM Training Runs are returning, accepting up to 250 runners per session.

SCSM also celebrates the return of the Marathon events, road racing and mass start. Taking place on 2 – 4 December, race organisers IRONMAN Asia, together with Running Department, are rolling out a series of Training Runs to help runners prepare for SCSM.

The training runs take place biweekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, leading up to SCSM2022. All Saturday sessions will cover a longer distance. These training runs are part of a training programme that aims to optimise training, easing runners back into running safely post-pandemic.

Led by the PUMA pacers from Running Department, the public can choose to run with these pacer groups:


  • Marathon 42.195km – 4hrs 00min (05:40min/km)
  • Marathon 42.195km – 4hrs 30min (06:23min/km)
  • Marathon 42.195km – 5hrs 00min (07:07min/km)
  • Marathon 42.195km – 5hrs 00min (07:49min/km)

  • Half Marathon 21.1km – 2hrs 30min (07:07min/km)
  • Half Marathon 21.1km – 2hrs 15min (07:49min/km)
