  1. I'll give a personal perspective of someone who cut the race short. I joined in the run at around the 10k mark and ran till the end (ie i did 32k). Collected the finisher shirt and medal. Also have a finishing time (but missing the 5k n 10k checkpts) Why did I do so? Well firstly I dont usually run marathons in Singapore anymore cos its too hot to PB, and its not like I'm in contention to win a prize. I do like running though, and I love the atmosphere at SCMS. Hence I already decided months before the race that I would probably just do the last 30ish kms as a training run, instead of bashing my legs up doing a full marathon. I did try to remove the timing chip on the bib. Normally it is some glued on thing, but this year the timing device is embedded into the bib and couldnt be removed unless u cut that section of the bib out. I do feel abit bad about having a finishing time, because it may affect the ranking of people who finished the full race. But I do also think the organisers have a duty to remove runners with missing checkpoint times such as myself from the final results listing. Lastly, I did collect the finisher shirt and medal. Funny thing about SCMS finisher shirts. The first one I ever earned, I really treasured, and even felt abit paiseh to wear it in public cos I didnt want to be though of as "showing off" (it was just a 5 hour slog/walk after all). With subsequent marathons, the value of such finisher shirts has diminished to me, I hardly wear them anyway, and it also seems like soooo many people have marathon finisher shirts these days. I normally dont accept the medal at most races, but the volunteer offering it at SCMS was so ernest that i didnt want to reject her. So there you have it. One perspective from the other side of the fence. For your discussion please =)
