The IRONMAN Group, organisers of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), makes a series of announcements today as it gears up for a return to a full-scale event in December this year.
PUMA as Official Apparel and Footwear Sponsor
Race organisers announced that global sportswear brand PUMA will be the Official Apparel and Footwear sponsor at this year’s event, outfitting participants across three days from 2 to 4 December.
This marks the first time that SCSM is partnering PUMA, with the leading apparel brand producing this year’s Official SCSM 2022 Running Singlet, Marathon 42.195km Finisher T-Shirt, Kids Dash T-Shirt, and other event apparel.
All participants in the Marathon 42.195km, Half Marathon 21.1km, 10km, 5km categories will receive the Official SCSM 2022 Running Singlet.
From 1 September 2022, you can head down to PUMA’s new flagship store at 313@Somerset to view and try on the sizes of the Running Singlet, Marathon Finisher, and Kids Dash apparels prior to race registration.
While at the store, you can also enjoy a 20% storewide discount (product exclusions apply, weekdays only), including the new PUMA Nitro footwear. More information on the discount will be shared on SCSM social media channels on 31 August.
The running footwear features an advanced foam technology that is infused with nitrogen gas. This allows the footwear to be more responsive, fitted with better cushioning and while providing a lightweight feel—all to achieve a more effortless run.
Both the running singlet and Finisher tee feature breathable fabric, incorporating PUMA’s signature dryCELL technology. Together with its moisture-wicking properties, you will feel comfortable and ready to optimise your performance in the road race events.
More exclusive designs will be sold at the PUMA merchandise store in SCSM’s Race Expo. Details of the Race Expo will be shared at a later date.
In addition, the partnership also launches the PUMA Pacers, a 70-strong contingent who will lead runners in the Marathon 42.195km and Half Marathon 21.1km to complete their race in their desired race time. The PUMA Pacers will be put through a curated 16-week training plan by The Running Department, a local running club, in the weeks leading up to the big race.
If you are looking to kickstart your training journey and go beyond your personal bests, you can join the PUMA Pacers in eight public SCSM Training Runs. More details will be shared via SCSM official website and social media pages.
SCSM2022 Exclusive Medal Designs
Organisers also revealed the SCSM 2022 category medal design that feature the emblem that is part of the new SCSM logo unveiled earlier this year, showcasing two of Singapore’s most famous icons: the Merlion and the Orchid.
Runners taking part in this year’s ‘Double Up Challenge’ will receive the exclusive Finisher medal, on top of their respective category medals. This year’s design also includes the city’s prominent landmarks and attractions, such as Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer. Participants of the Double Up Challenge can take part in the 5km or 10km run on Saturdays, and Marathon 41.195km or Half Marathon 21.1km event on Sunday.
Participants will be awarded their respective medal upon finishing their event on 2 – 4 December 2022.
