On its ninth year, the annual Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore was held last sunday December 4, 2011. Just like in previous years, different categories have different starting points. The full-marathon begins at Orchard Road near Ngee Ann City, the half-marathon at Sentosa Bridge, and the 10km race starting point at the Esplanade. All routes end at the Padang.
Two ambulance cars traversed though the race route, later turned out that a 22 year old participant collapsed at the finish line and later died. He participated in the half-marathon category.
The Kenyan nationals Charles Mwai Kanyao and Irene Jerotich Kosgei won the full marathon men and women categories respectively.
Here's the sidelight of the said event.
