I have been eagerly waiting for the registration of the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2011 to start.  And after two long months scraping the interweb for information and checking the official site day and night, the good news has finally arrived ...

Registration starts tomorrow - June 23 2011 at 11AM (GMT +8)

The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2011 is one of the highlights of the local sports calendar for 2011 and the marquee running event in Singapore that aims to be Asia'a pinnacle race.

The event will feature three different start points and routes for the Full Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km, providing scenic views of Singapore’s iconic landmarks.

The Kids Dash also offers aspiring little runners the chance to experience the Marathon, while the Ekiden promises to foster both teamwork and strategic planning among a team of six runners completing the Full Marathon in a relay format.

A new non-competitive race category, the 5km Fun Run, will be making its debut at Singapore's marquee running event to further cater to runners of all ages and levels. This category also presents a great opportunity for family members and friends to bond through a recreational run.

The race is dedicated to help the less fortunate by raising funds for selected beneficiaries through the "Run For Good" charity programme

The Event Launch will be held on Thursday, 23 June 2011 at Raffles Place Park (7 Raffles Place, Singapore 048625), which is in front of Chevron House, from 11:00 am to 04:00 pm.  There will be on-site registration for the SCMS 2011 at the Event Launch, from 11:00 am to 04:00 pm on 23 June 2011

The first 100 participants who register at the Event Launch will be entitled to a premium goodie bag worth approximately S$800, which includes premiums and vouchers from the Organiser and sponsors

In addition, the next 900 participants who register at the Event Launch will receive an exclusive goodie bag worth approximately S$400.
