SINGAPORE, 22 June 2022 – 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.
Double Up Challenge
With this year’s edition back to full-scale, participants 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. They can choose to register for either the 5km or 10km category, combined with a Half Marathon 21.1km or Marathon 42.195km. Upon completion, they will receive their respective event finisher medals and an exclusive Double Up Challenge medal.
Unveiling SCSM’s brand new logo
A new logo for the SCSM was unveiled to celebrate the return of a full-scale event and represents the roots of this long-standing event. The logo is fronted by two of Singapore’s most famous icons: the Merlion and the Orchid.
The Merlion, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year, is a Singapore icon that is featured in the new SCSM logo to signify the event’s positioning as a city race. The Orchid, is known to symbolise hardiness and resilience – qualities that reflect the Singapore spirit to go beyond and achieve greatness by defying limits and boundaries. The new logo will be displayed in all key branding materials such as the race singlet, marketing collaterals and event signages.
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.
Priority registration for SCSM2022 is now for SCSM 300KM Club runners as well as Marathon 42.195km participants of SCSM2019.
Public registration will begin on 24 June at 1000hours Singapore time. Standard Chartered cardholders can enjoy a 15% discount. Corporate rates are also available upon request. For more information, please visit www.singaporemarathon.com.
