Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2013

Recommended Posts

This is my first HK SCM and I had a great experience! Our local SCM has a lot to learn.


The route is quite challenging but that makes it fun. I’m so impressed by the super long water points and medics. No running out of water or having to queue for it.

I absolutely love the minty energy drink (I had 3 packets during the whole race). Initially I also thought it was the taste of the heat rub but couldn’t be as I have not applied anything at that time.The taste is refreshing and not so sweet unlike our local 100plus during SCSM which taste so bad that i feel like puking after a few cups. I’m someone who can’t take energy gel also. I’m still trying to find something that I can take without puking during the race. I think this energy drink works for me, but too bad it’s not available locally. One more point for the chocolates bars :thumbsu:

The home run leading to Victoria park was so memorable on the specially set up green and blue runway with the crowds cheering.

The only minus thing is the distribution of goodie bags after the finishing line. So messy and everyone were struggling to grab the bags..


As for the heat rub given by the medics, my friend says it works. I like the texture of it, not sticky at all.

How does you guys deal with the camber of the road?

The camber of the road is worst than Sheares Bridge towards East. I nvr realised it till i gradually run towards outer lane.

I really enjoyed the route and weather during the run!

Finished my 3rd Hongkong Standard Chartered Marathon, but it is considered 1st for me because 1st time was caught by the UFO (sweeper bus) at 33.3km mark and 2nd was few minutes after cutoff time at the finishing line.

Anyone keen on Tokyo marathon next year? I have friends been going for years and seems fun too!

    • actually, to run in any FM distance can be either as SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM VR 1 Session or SCSM 2020 Grand Finale FM Challenges 2-3 Sessions depending on announcements... Surely, the Technology that would enable SCSM 2020 -  "Runners can create avatars for the Virtual Route" will be delivered by TCS (if this will be announced that TCS shall also return in 2020)...congratulations, TCS had won the Silver Stevie in Innovation in Entertainment for SCSM 2019 Offical Race App... yes, reported that the audio (audience cheering) with augmented reality of visual "route" with iconic singapore landmarks... if there is a virtual marathon route, meaning there should be a "designated" route...meant for Elites? meant for VR "selective" Runners or for ALL participants...TBA Well, let's say for now...hydration and nutrition points are virtual, so go and figure out how then to DIY on supplementing your personal hydration and nutrition points on your "preferred routes"...cupless or personal bottles...as long as you don't anyhow dispose any place...otherwise, @Lady Ice will virtually appear as an avatar and "gentle reminder" to Keep the Race Course Clean & Safe... wonder if her avator also include a tyre... Had seen many runners in recent days using the "ECP preferred routes" as for their SCSM VRs on weekends or SCSM Challenges on weekday... very obviously, these are SCSM Virtual Club members, warming up and earning Points and Badges for their effort... of course, uncle collected Points and Badges at non-crowded "preferred routes"...just collected VR4-5KM, tomorrow will "gun" time for VR4-15KM.. so what's next week VR5-??KM...hope it should be 20KM or 10KM (because not awarded yet) and 17KM (reminds uncle of banana and gel station aka checkpoint)...looking exciting.... So, are you gearing up for SCSM Grand Finale VR or Challenges?...no need to pay for 5km, 10km and 21km to register, you can howlian (show-off) your digital badges as evidence, and we can see your results as a Virtual Club Community.... Earn Your Running Points with Credits and How Lian with Pride on your Badges...still waiting for what?😀
    • really hope that the best athletes can represent Sg and not have internal fights amongst Committees and athletes.. 
    • these virtual races and challenges really will help runners to prepare for the finale.... but considering to run the FM distance alone without any spectators or water point can be a real challenge...
    • Standard Chartered Bank..renewed title sponsorship with Singapore Marathon until 2023...    
    • SRY who has a stake on future selection for 2021 SEA GAMES...in his FB..commented...   so ST Virtual Run finisher 175KM...can be called as Ultra National Athlete...lol  eat more🍿...who shall be the new SA Management Committee on 25 September...
