Over two days from 8 to 9 December, tens of thousands of athletes from 127 different countries participated in the 17th edition of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM).
On Saturday, the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2018 kicked off the race weekend with the Kids Dash at Universal Studios Singapore and the re-introduction of the 5km category supported by the National Steps Challenge. Together with the 10km race, the three events brought together thousands of participants, from all ages to pursue their passion for running.
Spectators were treated to live entertainment, and the first SCSM Foodtastic Village added a touch of vibrancy along Marina Bay. On route, spectators enjoyed 30 entertainment points keeping them pumped and driven throughout the race.
Winning the title of Singapore’s National Champions at SCSM 2018 were Soh Rui Yong and Lim Baoying. The duo fended off fierce competition from over 20 Team Singapore runners, which included former champion Rachel See, and veterans Mohamed Iskandar and Giebert Foo. Soh defended his title with a winning time of 2 hours 41 minutes and 49 seconds, while Lim shocked with an impressive 3 hours 16 minutes and 36 seconds. A sports doctor and member of the SCSM 300km Club, Lim was overcome with emotion upon crossing the finish line.
