(Article on the upcoming Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010)
Today I read on an article from Today about the upcoming Singapore Marathon in Dec this year.This year's race will be called “Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010" and not the usual name “Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon" The new race name was formed as Singapore Sports Council (SSC) decided to organize the race on their own and not co-organized with Singapore Athletic Association (SSA) from this year onwards.
It was also mentioned that SSA has the intention to organize their own marathon as well. That means there may be a possibility for another new marathon race in the future.
It was stated that AAC announced the new race yesterday and promised the full marathon (42.195km) race route would include iconic landmarks in Singapore. Does it means the race is going to run pass Orchard Road on the actual day as predicted in the article? No further detail is released until the launch run in June.
Let's hope the new running route for the upcoming Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2010 will be a interesting one. Cheers.
