Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010 Route

In June 2010, i have registered the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010.

Today official SCMS Facebook have posted the video on the SCMS route for 10km, 21km half marathon and 42km full marathon.

Let me present to you the 42km route which is im going to run the whole journey!

For the first time at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore this year, the Full Marathon (42KM) will kick off at 5am at the heart of Orchard Road. Runners will run pass landmarks such as Clarke Quay, Chinatown, the Esplanade, Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort.

Thought: As you can see in the video, we runners going to starting from Orchard road! In the video, it mentioned that the Christmas light are ready by then... Yeah.. 42km start running at 5.00am! Yeah! Since we are running 42km, we are going to run pass a lots of Singapore landmarks!

Now let me present 21KM route half marathon:

Participants of the Half Marathon on the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010 can look forward to a colourful and spectacular run with runners set to be flagged off at the Sentosa Bridge.

It will see participants completing 1km out of the 21km route through Universal Studios Singapore. This will be the first time the theme park -- which will be open before its normal operating hours to accommodate the SCMS 2010 -- will host an event of this nature. This is also the first race in Asia which will have runners running through a theme park as part of a half marathon route. The park's guides and up to 21 well-known characters and mascots such as 'Shrek', 'Marilyn Monroe' and the animals from the animated movie 'Madagascar' will be out in full force to add to the festive mood, cheering the runners.

Thought: IM JEALOUS! Its NOT FAIR! Why 21km runners have the chance to run through Universal Studios Singapore! Why... I wanna greet The Far Far Land President Shrek Grr.... Where on earth in Asia you have the chances to run pass a theme park! Im want to run 21km! The only marathon i can thinks of is World Disney Marathon... Im going to miss it. 

Here is the video of 10km route.

The 10km run on the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010 will start at the Esplanade Bridge. Runners will then head towards the Central Business District before turning back towards the Fullerton Hotel, and then on to the Esplanade Bridge. 

From there on they will continue their way past key landmarks on the Marina Bay before stopping the clock at the Padang.

Thought: 10km route is the shortest route, thus its not exciting as 21km and 42km! Advice to this year 10km runners, upgrade yourself and next year join 21km marathon! 

SCMS organisers are SMART! They planned their 21km route run pass up and down Universal Studios Singapore (USS)! Runners can take this chance to enjoy the FREE entry to USS and take photos while running!  This going to spur the interest of running to another level when it come to next year opening by SCMS.

On December 5, 2010 Sunday 5:00am, im going to run Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010.
This is my holiday cum marathon! Im do visiting the Singapore landmarks by foot. hehe...

Im shall enjoy my holiday although im disappointed that my 42km marathon route did not run pass Universal Studios Singapore!
