Seek December Sunshine In Singapore

You can still end 2017 in style by taking your place in Singapore Marathon. The event also includes a half marathon, 10k and Kids Dash is held across the weekend of 2-3 December. The races have attracted over 50,000 runners to the IAAF Gold Label event  since 2012. 

A tropical, warm climate all year round makes Singapore a great place to run during the winter. The vibrant metropolis is home to approximately four million Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasians. Visitors call Singapore the 'Garden City' for its amazing skyline and greenery. Singapore has an international atmosphere and the warmth and friendliness of Asia. 

From its origins as a British straits settlement, Singapore has grown into one of the most vibrant, wealthy and diverse countries in East Asia. An abundance of green space provides many opportunities to get active.

After the running has finished, visitors will be able to enjoy all the sightseeing you could ask for including theme attractions, nature parks, off shore islands and museums.

The 2016 Singapore Marathon saw success for Kenya in both the men’s and women’s marathons. Felix Kirwa (2:17:18) was fastest across the finish line in the men’s race, while Rebecca Chesir clocked a time of 2:43:04 to take the prize in the women’s event.
