Run will bring participants through Singapore’s historical and cultural sights
The Half and the Full Marathon will flag off at 4.30am in the heart of Singapore’s shopping district, Orchard Road, and the run will bring participants through historical and cultural sights of Singapore such as Chinatown, the Malay Heritage Area and the heart of the Central Business District.
90 per cent of road closures
Runners can also look forward to 90 per cent of road closures across the race route. This is the most ever for a running race in Singapore.
