Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010

Finisher Medal for Half Marathon,

Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010

Date of Event: 5 December 2010

 

The Half Marathon route in Sentosa was challenging, fun and very lively. The Volunteers did a fantastic job all through the route. Positively surprised to finish in the top 22% of the field :)

 

Race Information

Three unique start points for inaugural Marathon; half-marathoners to be taken through Universal Studios in Sentosa; Ekiden relay to debut in Singapore

 

Full marathon runners will be in for a treat as they will be able to run down Orchard Road with the Christmas light-up in full operation after the flag-off near Ngee Ann City. Runners will be taken past iconic landmarks such as the colourful Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts building, followed by bustling Chinatown and the grand Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

 

Half marathon runners will start their run on Sentosa Bridge and can expect to be taken through Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios theme park at Resorts World Sentosa, where they might be greeted by Shrek, Po (from Kung Fu Panda) and other well-known animated characters. This is the first marathon to take place within the newly opened Universal Studios Singapore.

 

As for the 10km category, runners will start off at the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay and will run past Singapore’s Financial District before moving over to the new Helix Bridge.
