The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), is back. With a mass start and road race format, the event is back in its true form for the first time since 2019, marking the return of the Half Marathon 21.1km and Marathon 42.195km categories to cater for more runners.
Last year’s edition, the largest in-person running event held in Singapore since the COVID-19 pandemic began, saw 4,000 runners flagged off in waves of 50 – with three moving off every 10 seconds – to ensure safe distancing. In addition, only the 5km, 10km and the relay categories were held in-person to keep the participant numbers low.
With events in Singapore reopening to full capacity, this year’s SCSM is expected to draw up to 50,000 participants over the two-day event from 3 to 4 December.
Prevailing Safe Management Measures (SMMs) will still be in place to safeguard the health and safety of all participants. Road closures should also be expected to provide runners an enjoyable experience running through the city once again, while ensuring that road traffic continues to run smoothly. More details on the closures are to be confirmed.
With this year’s edition back to full-scale, you will also be able to sign up for the Double Up Challenge. With limited slots available, runners can take part in not one, but two races. You can choose to register for either the 5km or 10km category, combined with a Half Marathon 21.1km or Marathon 42.195km.
Upon completion, you will receive their respective event finisher medals and an exclusive Double Up Challenge medal.
The two-day event will kick off with 5km and 10km on Saturday morning, while the Marathon 42.195km and Half Marathon 21.1km categories will flag off on Sunday morning. More details about Kids Dash, route, and race expo will be announced later.
Registration is now open. Standard Chartered cardholders can enjoy a 15% discount. Corporate rates are also available upon request.
