Singapore, 28 August 2019 – Organisers of the 2019 Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon™ (SCSM) unveiled the SCSM medal design for this year’s Marathon category, a second rendition of the “Bold Gold” series. The medal design is fronted by the Merlion, a unique yet deeply-rooted symbol of Singapore, with key elements of the city’s iconic skyline in the background.
The 15,000 anticipated participants in the Marathon category will receive the iconic medal upon completion of SCSM’s first evening race on 30 November.
To begin preparing for this year’s race, runners can now participate in training programmes from the Running Department, Garmin Women Squad, or SCSM’s virtual running community on Strava, helping runners put their best foot forward as they prepare for the race.
Interested participants can join free weekly training sessions led by official pacers from the Running Department starting from 28 August onwards. These training-run routes include varying distances, ranging from 10km to 33km, venturing across the island, passing by notable locations including Singapore Sports Hub (home to the world’s largest retractable roof), the Formula 1 Pit Building and Labrador Park, allowing participants to have a feel of the route even before race day.
