The Standard Chartered Marathon 2016


This year Standard Chartered marathon was held this weekend here in Singapore. The starting point is in Orchard Road and culminated in Padang area fronting the National Gallery building.

This is a yearly event and one of the most participated marathon being organized here in Singapore. This year there were about 46,000 runners took part. The half and full marathons were flagged off simultaneously in Orchard Road and later joined by the 10K racers at Esplanade Drive.


This year event was a bit sad as one the participant collapsed and later died in the hospital.

Once again, the runners from Kenya emerges winners both male and female category.

I am always fascinated watching this event as there are participants who make statement by wearing clothes other than the issued uniform. But this year I was disappointed as I haven’t seen anyone outrageously dress for the occasion.
