03 FOREWORD Dear runners, On 1 December 2013, you will be among more than 54,000 runners in the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) 2013. I wish you all the best for a run that will challenge both your mental and physical limits. Since its inception, the SCMS has grown tremendously. This marquee sporting event is now one of Asia’s top road races and it ﬁ rmly holds its place on our nation’s sporting calendar. The consistent number of runners for the event is testament to its success. It is encouraging to see such a huge number of runners lining up once again this year. We call the SCMS the ‘People’s Race’ and it is certainly that. The event shows that sport truly is a powerful platform to break down any perceived barriers. It is also encouraging to see a healthy sporting culture across all ages, from young participants in the Kids Dash right to senior runners taking part in the marathon. Beyond local shores, the SCMS also attracts its fair share of international participants. The International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) accorded the SCMS Gold Label status in 2011 and 2012. We are proud to rank alongside other famous marathon cities such as Beijing, Berlin, Boston, Tokyo and London. This is a reﬂ ection of the commitment and dedication of all involved in making the event possible, from the sponsors, the thousands of volunteers to the staff of the Singapore Sports Council. Sport plays a vital role in shaping the value and character of our people and our society. The SCMS is an event that perfectly demonstrates this special quality of sport and I look forward to witnessing it grow even further in years to come. Have a great run! Acting Minister, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth
05 FOREWORD Welcome to the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2013.
Since 2002, Standard Chartered Bank has played a part in nurturing Singapore’s passion for running. In partnership with the Singapore Sports Council, we have helped to build the Marathon into a world class event. The Marathon has attained the Gold Label certiﬁ cation by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) for the past two years and it was also awarded the Best Local Sports Event at the recent Singapore Sports Awards 2013. This year, we are also pleased to welcome on board Spectrum Worldwide as the event organiser and together, we aim to deliver a quality race to the runners, supporters, volunteers, corporates and the community.
The courage, determination and passion of the runners resonate strongly with what we stand for as an organisation. It is very much part of our brand promise to be Here for good in the communities we operate. Each year, we are very encouraged by runners who leverage on the Marathon to raise funds for various charities, and our Standard Chartered Bank staff runners have also been actively running for good. This year, they have supported a variety of causes including the Bank’s Seeing is Believing initiative to eliminate avoidable blindness, sports for the visually impaired and underprivileged youth, and HIV awareness.
Whatever cause you may be running for, or if you are simply running for ﬁ tness and fun, event day marks the culmination of months of training for many, and a full year of preparation for the organisers, volunteers and all who have contributed to ensure a safe and enjoyable running experience. I would like to thank everyone who has worked tirelessly to make the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore such a great success.
See you at the start line on 1 December. Chief Executive Ofﬁ cer, Singapore, Standard Chartered Bank
07 FOREWORD The Singapore Sports Council (SSC) is delighted to welcome you to the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) 2013. At SSC we understand the dedication, commitment and hours of preparation required to get ready for your respective race categories. Whether you’re lining up in the Marathon, Half Marathon, Ekiden, 10km or Kids Dash (750m) category, I applaud you for joining Singapore’s marquee running event and I wish you all the best. While you have been preparing diligently for your race, we have also been working hard to enhance the SCMS race so that you continue to have a safe and memorable race experience. With three different start points located across the island, the various running routes will take runners along some breath-taking backdrops before ending the journey at the Padang. I am proud to once again see such strong registration numbers this year. The Ekiden race category sold out on the opening day of registration while a huge number of runners have graduated from running the Half Marathon in 2012 to testing themselves with the full 42.195km distance in 2013. It is also inspiring to see so many older runners register for the Marathon, proving once again that age is certainly no barrier. We have many runners aged over 70, and a number over 80, who will be running 42.195km and I congratulate them on their determination and passion. The Half Marathon and 10km categories also reached maximum capacity prior to the close of registration, while the Kids Dash (750m) continues to appeal to our young runners and their parents. A lot goes into planning and delivering a successful SCMS. Spectrum Worldwide was granted full responsibility of organising the event this year, and we are conﬁ dent that they will build and expand on the successes of previous editions to provide you with the best race experience possible. I would like to thank Spectrum Worldwide for the good work and for engaging the thousands of volunteers who will be dedicating hours of their own personal time to contribute to a great run on 1 December. I would also like to express my gratitude to our fellow Government agencies for their support. Finally, to all of you who will be racing on 1 December, I look forward to seeing you at the start line. Let us all live better through sports! Chief Executive Ofﬁ cer, Singapore Sports Council
09 FOREWORD Dear runners, Firstly, congratulations on being part of Singapore’s marquee running event and one of the world’s largest Marathons. As the ofﬁ cial event organiser, our key driving factor during the entire planning process is to deliver the best experience possible for all participants on Sunday, 1 December. I’m sure you are all excited the event is ﬁ nally here after your months of dedicated training and preparation. We are equally as thrilled to now see all the months of event planning come to fruition for the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2013. On behalf of Spectrum Worldwide I would like to thank the Singapore Sports Council and Standard Chartered Bank for their ongoing support in the build-up to this event. We have also worked closely alongside various Government agencies, authorities and key stakeholders to facilitate the entire operations including route and venue management. A running event of this magnitude, staged on closed public roads across Singapore, would not be possible without their assistance. A special mention must also be made to thank the thousands of volunteers who give up their own time to provide valuable assistance during the event. Volunteers are integral to the continued success of the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore so if you have the opportunity to personally thank them on race day, please do so. Once again, congratulations on being part of this outstanding event and I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, 1 December. It is you, the participant, who is the heart and soul of this event. Keep up the marathon spirit! Managing Director, Spectrum Worldwide (SWW)
11 Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2013 The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) is the nation’s marquee running event and one of the real highlights of the local sporting calendar. It is owned by the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and organised by Spectrum Worldwide (SWW). The SCMS was awarded the Gold Label certification by the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) following the 2011 and 2012 editions, placing it alongside other world-class marathons such as the Berlin, London and New York City marathons. This year, Orchard Road, Sentosa and Esplanade Drive will see the flag offs for the Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10km races respectively. The various running routes will take participants across the island and pass some of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay, East Coast Park, the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands before leading to the finish line at the Padang. The Kids Dash category will offer our young runners a taste of the main event as they race 750m in the highly popular category. Another unique category, the Ekiden, will see teams of six working together to race the Marathon in a competitive relay format. As well as devoting time to train for the big event, a large number of SCMS participants have also dedicated their run to a special cause this year by raising funds for local charities on GIVE Asia, the event’s official fundraising platform. Every runner will have their own personal motivation driving them towards the ﬁ nish line on Sunday, 1 December. What’s yours?

17 Run For Good RUNNING FOR NO Teresa is the supervisor of the NOVA Learning Intervention Programme at Morning Star Community Services. A volunteer with the organisation for ﬁ ve years before deciding to become an employee, she says, “The Run for Good 2013 initiative is an excellent way for me to achieve many things. I get to improve my health, have fun with my colleagues at Singapore’s largest and hippest racing event, and most importantly, raise funds for my favourite cause, NOVA!”
NOVA is the acronym for ‘Nurturing One’s Valuable Attributes’, a learning intervention programme pioneered by Morning Star Community Services in 2006.
NOVA’s individualised learning plan acknowledges that every child is a unique individual and underscores the VA philosophy embraced by Morning Star; that a child is more than a student.
If anything, training for her very ﬁ rst 10km run has reminded Teresa of another important lesson – routine and discipline.
Teresa and 24 of her colleagues and their family members are running to raise funds for the NOVA Fund, a fund supporting children who require ﬁ nancial aid to enrol in the NOVA Learning Intervention Programme. To donate, please go to http://marathonsingapore.giveasia.org/movement/run_for_morning_star Teresa Wong, Morning Star, Senior Facilitator, NOVA Learning Intervention Programme RUNNING FOR Daniel (age six) and Ethan (age ﬁ ve) are joining forces in the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore for the third year running, once again raising funds and awareness for autism. The brothers, who both have autism, were encouraged by their parents to join the run and dedicate their efforts to the autism charities. The Khors want their boys to learn the value of perseverance in every endeavour they undertake in life. In their journey, the Khors have seen how their boys have beneﬁ ted from early diagnosis and early intervention. Through this fundraising activity and participation in the run, the family hopes to help increase awareness for autism and raise funds AUTISM for the autism charities so that more individuals across all age groups can get access to services that the charities provide. In 2011, the brothers raised $2,500 within a week for the Autism Association Singapore. Last year, they combined their efforts with their father’s ﬁ rst marathon effort to raise $7,700 for the Autism Resource Centre, within just a month. This year, the boys hope to cross the $10,000 mark in funds raised for the two charities as well as St Andrew’s Autism Centre. Daniel and Ethan Khor Any donations can be made directly to Daniel and Ethan’s fundraising page at http://marathonsingapore.giveasia.org/movement/daniel_and_ethan_run_for_autism_2013 RUNNING FOR SPOR Barry Teo and his ﬁ ve workmates from Glencore have formed an Ekiden team and are raising funds for The SportCares Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Singapore Sports Council. According to Barry, their participation in this year’s Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore characterises the company’s ‘work hard, play hard’ motto. As active pursuers of sports and healthy lifestyles, Barry and his teammates often take part in sporting events such as the half ironman previously held in Singapore. The Glencore team’s passion for sports extends beyond its primary function of keeping ﬁ t and relieving stress to building team spirit, camaraderie and character. Thus, SportCares became the team’s choice of beneﬁ ciary as it shares their beliefs and presents TCARES a great opportunity to let others experience the positive beneﬁ ts that sports contributes to society. This is their ﬁ rst time running for a charitable cause and they are sure it won’t be their last. Any donations can be made directly to the ‘Glencore Care for Sports’ page at: http://giveasia.org/movement/glencore_cares_for_sports

23 I’m not the ﬁ ttest kind of person, in fact I look plump, but I’d like to inspire people that running is not about size, shape or build. Everyone can start running no matter what - the most important thing is taking the ﬁ rst step.

I am very happy to talk about the sport and exchange ideas on training, motivation, sports science and performance.

Donovan Lam 28 M Risk Ofﬁ cer 4hrs 15mins So far, running has always been about my targets and what PB’s I would want to set for myself.

I have never looked back and have progressed to do other races such as ultra- marathons since after my ﬁ rst marathon at 2009. I am a living testimony that an average person can attain extraordinary achievements if he puts in the effort and passion. Boon Chong 51 M – 4hrs 45mins To share the joy of camaraderie derived from running with like-minded souls. Huat Eugene 45 M Director 4hrs 45mins Running is not just only about racing. I want to be a Pacer to share my experience with Matthias Loh others. Running in a group creates a common goal, in this case a timed goal. You won’t easily ﬁ nd camaraderie within such a short period. The runners that cross together at their stated pace are the most appreciative people you will ever come across and now they possess conﬁ dence to further their running accomplishments on their own. It’s an amazing feeling to be helping someone do and achieve something that they once perceived as unachievable. This ability serves as the driving force that propels them to the next level. It’s about how every ounce of strength, determination and passion put through running gets churns up into something I can look back and be proud of. Unlike a physical object where you can feel and touch, it’s feels more like time. Whereby it may seem like it’s just several trivial numbers thrown together by an automated clock, but each of these numbers, down to the hundredth of a second has a meaning beyond what anyone can comprehend. It provides me a chance to feel like a completely different person, a person who inspires others, and whom they strive to be.

But thanks to the Pacers, I managed to concentrate on the running (while catching up) and eventually completed my ﬁ rst marathon race. Since then, I have never stopped and each race make me realised the importance of having Pacers. Now that I’m a Pacer too, I hope to do the same by helping others ﬁ nish their race beautifully. It is going to take some grit but we are going to get to the ﬁ nish line together.

52 Runners’ Estimated Timeline This timeline will help you to estimate where a runner will be at a specifi c time. To co-ordinate your presence at specifi c spots, you need to know the runner’s estimated completion time for the Marathon. For instance, the runner expects to fi nish the Marathon in 4 hours 15 minutes. You should refer to the Sub 5 column of the chart. For example, you will need to be at The Concourse by 06:11am, and at the fi nish stretch by 10:32am. This timeline estimate assumes the runner maintains a constant speed throughout the race based on the average completion time. Alternatively, you can gauge the progress of your friends on race day by using the race tracker on marathonsingapore.com. (Do note that times and positions on race tracker are unoffi cial.)
