Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) 2010 Race Map

I've been checking the SCMS website for awhile now to get some updates about the race.  Particularly the race route.  The available information provided initially was that the starting points for all distances are different.  The 42k runners will start at Orchard while the half-mary runners will go off at Sentosa and the 10k racers will kick it off at Esplanade Drive.  The finish point for all categories will be at St Andrew's Road

Last May, additional information was posted on what to expect --
Full marathon runners will be in for a treat as they will be able to run down Orchard Road with the Christmas light-up in full operation after the flag-off near Ngee Ann City. Runners will be taken past iconic landmarks such as the colourful Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts building, followed by bustling Chinatown and the grand Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

Half marathon runners will start their run on Sentosa Bridge and can expect to be taken through Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios theme park at Resorts World Sentosa, where they might be greeted by Shrek, Po (from Kung Fu Panda) and other well-known animated characters. This is the first marathon to take place within the newly opened Universal Studios Singapore. As for the 10km category, runners will start off at the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay and will run past Singapore’s Financial District before moving over to the new Helix Bridge

In their FAQ, the detailed map will be ready by October.  Luckily, I chanced upon their facebook site and saw the proposed route for all distances


And to make things even more interesting, here's the contents of the goodie bag

Hopefully all distance runners will be able to get one.  It will really be a shame if 10k runners like me won't be able to get my hands on that beautiful chronograph watch

All runners who complete their distances will get the finisher's medal, finisher's certificate, and finisher's t-shirt.  For the shirt, I am assuming that it will not be given to every one because there is that clause "if applicable"
