10KM Category Sold Out at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014
SINGAPORE, 13 NOVEMBER 2014 — More than 20,000 participants will line up on the 10km start line at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) 2014, with the final few entries snapped up this week. Runners who are keen to participate are still able to register for the Marathon and Half Marathon categories.
The runners in the 10km category will compete alongside Haile Gebrselassie, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever long distance runners of all time who will be running his very first race in the Lion City. The two-time Olympic Gold Medallist will also be flagging off the Marathon at Orchard Rd with Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth.
Participants in all categories will also look forward to a smoother and more enjoyable run this year following an earlier announcement outlining route revisions designed to reduce congestion.
Registrations remain open for late entries in the Marathon and Half Marathon categories. Participants will have to pay a $20 late fee and will not receive a personalised race bib. For all SCMS 2014 registration details please visit www.marathonsingapore.com.
