If never complete SCMS 42Km still can get medal and finisher shirt?

Recommended Posts

If you sign up for the Standard Chartered 42 Km Marathon and you can't complete it, say halfway during the marathon you feel sick or tired and you give up, can you still collect the finisher shirt and medal?

How about those people who sign up 42km but they never go for the race and say at 9am they just go to the finishing point and collect the medal and finisher shirt also can?

ermmm....... morally no runner will do that cause the finisher tee is only for those who complete the marathon full distance... there will always be a next year to take part and try to complete it within the stipulated time......

Some people who cannot finish might still want to collect the finisher tee and medal as souvenier or take it and sell it online like in sgrunners?

ppl run 6 km and hide toilet wait collect finisher tee.

pretty sure no one can really check if you have completed the 42k at the finishing line.

However, obviously will get DQ and no cert since would have missed like almost all the checkpoints.

See conscience lo...

Of cos, don go collect too fast. Later run faster than mok ying ren.

Assuming you are really sick and never complete, how to get to finish line since halfway complete only? How to cross finish line to collect medal & tee? Is not like you can walk into padang as a tourist and ask for a tee.

For the other scenarios where runners not sick but take a bus or transport nearer to finish line just to cross and take stuff.....well, if not caught & your timing is reasonable, may get away with it.

Real story: Few yrs back, my colleague a 21k runner took my boss 42km bib to run since my boss got last minute biz trip. My colleague crossed the SC Marathon finish line in around 2 1/2 hrs. At first, they gave him the finisher stuff, then they got suspicious (dun know why - we suspect he was too fast. haha), called for supervisor, investigated, then took back everything telling him he was DSQ for not crossing all the FM chkpoints. He was okay with it since he nvr ran the 42k anyway and my boss gave away a run he already paid for.

But as someone said, it's conscience lor. If want to cheat.....what to say?

    • Me personally think that China is up & coming regardless of road races or trail events ie. UTMB etc. We will definitely see more & more Chinese runners. Plus point that is their sporting culture much stronger than ours. Political reason we will see a China marathon becomes one of WMM in the future & most like will be Chengdu Marathon. Rational Wanda Chairman's hometown is at Chengdu. Link:    SDM might not be known internationally but due to marketing efforts of previous owner HiVelocity, they have sold the idea of "Largest Night Race in Asia" to this region ie. China, Taiwan, Malaysia etc. So definitely if any runner is talking of night race, SDM will come in the picture & not clone like Bangkok Midnight Marathon. Of course SDM has much to improve as compared to SCSM & cut down silly mistakes like Water Not Enough. If not,  it will be like what you said Sleep Forever.
    • uncle ran on Nike Vaporfly running shoes     that comfortable feeling is the feather-lightness of the thickness of soles and carbon fibre plate... waterproof material wraps round feet...don't need to wear socks...almost feel "five-finger" wrap round legs...except sole is no longer Vibram. racing responsiveness indeed...running feet are charged for PB anytime... depending on individual runner's efficiency in his/her running gait, wear and tear of soles taken into consideration depending on the run terrain ...lifespan of 400km+  I seriously don't see why the shoe should be banned. Make no sense at all. If technology can improve one's timing or feel good factor, it should be allowed in my opinion. If technology in run can make runners feel runner's high all the time by running more efficient..why banned? ...maybe only for the Elite Runners for good Sportsmanship. 😀 More on Nike Vaporfly...             Note: uncle is not sponsored by Nike, nor brands like New Balance, Asics, Adidas...uncle is a barefoot minimalist..and uncle just "thrown" out Five-Fingers Vibram due to wear and tear and spring cleaning for the Lunar New Year...😁

    • China - will 'marathon fever' continue? Our other WMM Major Candidate for 2021/2022 (info - https://www.shine.cn/sport/2001079314/)     Bro, i don't think SDM will die out. I felt SDM has become a branding on it's own over the years. A truly "Sleep Can Wait" event that runners ran unearthly hours over the years. Branding of Marathon event must attract Strong Local Runner and especially International runners. It must also innovate with technology. Otherwise, a truly "Sleep Can Wait" event will "Sleep Forever or RIP". SDM has yet to be known as "branded" internationally (being certified), except it has being known as "Water Not Enough" Singapore Marathon.  July - August (Summer months) there are many available slots for SCSM to be considered for 2021 The humidity in May - August has been always high (a minus for any endurance run) and often the date clash with the Muslim Ramadan and Hari Raya (a minus for muslim runners who may come from the region like Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia). May/June is the Inter Monsoon Season and there is possibility of "stormy-thunder lighting weather". Of course, this will more than likely sound the death knell for SDM unless it does the smart thing and shift to the end of the year. SDM has yet reinvented itself as "Sun Rise" Day Marathon and that also can be a death knell for SDM. Unlike SCSM - Day or Evening or Night Marathon option is always there.
