Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014

Recommended Posts

Running out of singlets at registration phase (July only). SCMS IS INDEED "UNIQUE"

Don't quite understand the organizers. Don't tell me they ordered stocks first?

Maybe they have MOQ with their manufacturers? :P

You doing TNF 2014?

From September, SCMS runners can get the latest news, information and useful tips for the marathon on their fingertips, with a brand new app that will be launched then.

This app will be available on both the iOS and Android smartphone platforms.

More information here.

looks like regular runners have a common mind o

yes.... my reason for running the HM this year (despite running the FM for the past 5yrs.....) is to soak into the atmosphere.....

I just cannot imagine myself lying in bed, resting on the morning of the SCMS race, when I know all Singapore runners falling-in at the ending point.... I know I need to run no matter how pissed I am last year..... hahaha....


Same here! Regardless of how much misgivings or complains i have about previous years' events, i still cannot accept being at home kicking my own heels on race day knowing that most of my running friends are at SCMS!!! I'd rather run 10km than not running at all hahaha

You know what? That's exactly how I feel too. I would find myself looking at SCMS runners and news reports with jealousy if I don't run the race at all.

Like Sundown, SCMS is another local race that is really 'die die must run' due to all the fanfare and coverage associated with them. Like it or not, everyone will be talking, posting, blogging, reporting, gossiping, complaining, raving about the race, good or bad. It'll be weird for a regular runner to not be part of the most hyped and talked about race in Singapore.

Looks like regular runners have a common thought in mind...... :thumbsu:

Hahaha. You too? High five! :D

Good news for those who want to change their men's singlet sizes. XS available.

I received an email today:

"We are pleased to inform that sizes of running apparels will be re-stocked

If you were previously unable to select your preferred running singlet size, you can now log-in to marathonsingapore.com and change your selection.

Simply click on ‘CHECK REGISTRATION STATUS’ log in and follow the instructions to make your revised selection."

========================================================================================

Good of them to rectify this.

Someone already posted this earlier in this thread that routes will be the same as last year.

http://www.marathonsingapore.com/race-routes/

I don't think the page is accessible from the main page yet, which means these are not "official" yet and they only cut and paste from last year's info. Things can still change.

High chance it will be similar to this year's Sundown Marathon, whereby it goes up to Sheares Bridge after the ECP stretch :startle:

Yup, it'll be boring if it's the same route. But i wouldn't mind at all, because some of the bigger and more prestigious marathons around the world also use the same routes year after year. As long as i'm not short changed on the distance and race experience, i'll be happy to take part :)

Not an issue if it the same route as last yr.

Here (pun intended!) is the detailed route for the HM last yr.

The route was run on what was previously AYE. As you can see, the MCE start to the right after the Keppel viaduct. The old AYE veered to the left. If anything, it would actually be easier as the old AYE has been relegated to a highway instead of an expressway.

I think it's still too early for the discount... Usually it's after receiving the race pack and one can make use of the voucher inside...

I agreed. For more seasoned runners, they will prefer to have pair of seasoned shoes rather than a brand new pair... They might be interested to change new shoe for the SCM but they need time to break in the shoe....

Maybe other merchandise like race belt or gel etc during he race expo is different....

    • Was looking forward to the actual run as I've never participated in this event before. Completed the 21km virtual run yesterday. Initially thought was only given 2 weeks to upload result which would be unfairly difficult given the short notice if one has not been running regularly. Fortunately, I've been running 21km every weekend since March. First time did 2x 21km within 4 days. Thankfully my Plantar Fasciitis is still holding up.
    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done 👍   Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong, can apply.    I scare scare, should I call? 
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why??? 🤔 Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of 27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line is of course different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears  you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print. If she had to choose between the two of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!" 🥴
    • I’m not a local, so I didn’t know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover  19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
