Race Prelude: Sundown Marathon 2012

Sundown Marathon is in its fifth edition this year, and this is the first ever marathon that will take runners on a brand new scenic race route through the Marina Bay Waterfront area and the western region of Singapore. With the night lights of the majestic Lion City whizzing past with every step, it will be a night to remember.

Three race routes (42km, 21 km and 10km) have been mapped out for runners to take on the beautiful urban landscape of The Float@Marina Bay, Fullerton Hotel, Marina Barrage and the iconic KTM Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.

Over 25,000 participants have already registered, making it one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events on the local sporting calendar. Due to the overwhelming response, registration date has been extended to 19 April 2012.

Getting There

If you drive, you are encouraged to park at The Furniture Mall, The Plaza, Golden Mile Tower and Keypoint. But if you ask us, the train’s still the preferred mode of transport. Alight at Nicoll Highway Station (Circle Line, CC5) and take a 2-minute walk to Nicoll Highway from Exit A. Fret not, there’ll be directional signs to guide you along.

Pre Race Fringe Activities

Leading up to the Sundown Marathon, fringe activities have been lined up to help participants improve speed and strength.
