The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) is back on 5 & 6 December 2015 with several exciting additions. The categories remain the same - Marathon (42.195km), Half-Marathon (21.1km), 10km, Ekiden and Kids Dash - but the new format of the event is proving to be tempting. Here are the reasons why you should take part this year.

1. It is a unique event in South East Asia
SCMS has always been more than just an annual mass participation event. It is a sporting and lifestyle spectacle that focuses on community involvement, charity and hitting personal goals.

2. This year, we race as one
In light of our nation’s Jubilee celebrations, SCMS – now in its 14th year - is charting a fresh course under a new banner ‘This year, we race as one’. This is to reflect the hundreds and thousands of runners who each play a role in contributing towards SCMS’ success.

3. Run for a cause

Just last year, SCMS managed to raise $370,000 for charitable causes. This year, runners too, can run for charity and raise money for their own communities (North, North-East, East, Central and West). Participants can do so via SCMS’ official fundraising platform GIVEAsia.
