  • Pg 03Lawrence Wong Foreword Dear runnersActing Minister, Ministry of Culture,Community and Youth On 2 December, you will be running the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, one of the top road races in Asia. It is a run that will test your endurance and grit. To family and friends, you will no doubt be an inspiration. Over the years, this marathon has captured the hearts of runners across Singapore. We call it the Peoples Race, because it continues to attract scores of people and brings the community together. It started with just about 6,000 participants back in 2002. This year, more than 50,000 will be taking part in the run. It is heartening to see this healthy sporting culture growing among us. The International Association of Athletics Federations has accorded the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore a Gold Label certification in 2011. This puts Singapore in the ranks of cities such as Beijing, Berlin, Boston, Tokyo and London. It is a reflection of the quality of the race, both in terms of its organisation and participation. The event attracts runners from around the world. You can look forward to running alongside some of the best. The race could not happen without the involvement of the many volunteers, who have been working hard to ensure that you will have an optimal running experience. I would like to offer my heartfelt gratitude to all the volunteers for your commitment and contributions. I would also like to thank our sponsors and partners who have contributed to the success of this event. Sports play an important role in our society, whether you are a runner, a spectator cheering your favourite athlete or team, or a volunteer. It has the ability to inspire the human spirit and to bring people closer together. The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore is an event that exemplifies this special quality of sports. Have a great run!
  • Pg 05Ray Ferguson Foreword Welcome to the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2012.Chief Executive Officer, SingaporeStandard Chartered Bank Since 2002, Standard Chartered Bank is proud to have played a part in nurturing Singapores passion for running. Whether you are an experienced marathoner aiming for your personal best, or running with family and friends for fun and to stay fit, there is every reason to run in the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. 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 where we operate. Just as the runners are determined to finish the race well, we are committed in our partnership with the Singapore Sports Council to deliver a quality race and to bring together runners, supporters, volunteers, corporates and the community. Each year, we are encouraged by runners who leverage on the marathon to raise awareness and funds for various charities. This year, I am extremely pleased that a group of Standard Chartered Bank staff have come together, not only to raise funds to develop a sports club for the visually impaired, but to also run as sighted guides to several visually impaired runners at the marathon. They have been training together and getting to know each other better for the past three months, and I am proud of their commitment and achievements. Event day marks the culmination of months of training for many, and a full year of preparation by the organisers, volunteers and many others 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 a great success. See you at the start line on 2 December.

It is a fitting accolade for a race that has grown to become Singapores annual marquee running event. At SSC, we know that marathon running is no easy feat. It requires tenacity, resilience, commitment and enduring preparation. Similarly, the work on the 2012 SCMS began from the day after the last one in 2011.

In addition to adopting a festive theme, we will also be introducing some new enhancements: Cheer Mobiles to ferry your friends and family to different spots on the route to cheer you on; the BMW Cheer Video screens programmed to broadcast personal video clips from your supporters urging you to stay the course as you approach the waypoint; and finally encouragement messages on the distance markers from fellow participants. On the full marathon route, look for this message at the 21km-mark from Joel Ee, I didnt do this to quit halfway. Lets do this! Thank you Joel! With more than 4,500 volunteers as well as 22 sponsors and partners, the SCMS exemplifies how our partnerships in sport can create more opportunities for people to live better. A special mention must go to our long-standing title sponsor, Standard Chartered Bank. With your support, the SCMS has grown into a Sporting Singapore icon and one of the top marathons in Asia. I would also like to express my gratitude to my organising committee, our fellow government agencies and the thousands of volunteers for their hard work and dedication.
