Singapore Marathon 2008

Here are the information on this year Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2008. No change in the title sponsor for this event, initially though that 2007 Singapore Marathon will be the last time Standard Chartered Bank is sponsoring. Standard Chartered Bank nearly doubled the sponsorship fees from $1.05 million to S$2 million and the organziers are targtting 48,000 participants, almost 20% more. This show that more and more Singaporeans are taking up running as their from of exercising. This year running routes will be different from the previous years. No more running in Marina south area. We will be covering more distances along the Nicholl Highway and around the Kallang Cricket Grounds. Not to forget that we will be also running along the Singapore Formula one track, which is held on 26 Sep 08, and through the pitstop areas.
