Random: Standard Chartered Marathon SG 2011


Very tired and with legs sore from this morning’s run, here are some updates of today’s Standard Chartered Marathon Run 2011 experience held at…hmm different locations. Yes, the place actually depends on which category you belong. And this marathon is one of the largest for this year because of the 65,000 participants who joined the race. Runners of different ages, gender and race were seen in the event. Akalain mong pati superheroes natakbo din?! But these guys run for a cause so heroes na heroes lang talaga. 🙂

The marathon has different categories: Full Marathon (42km), Half Marathon (21km), 10km Men/Women, 5km Fun Run and Kids Dash. Of course, san pa ba kami sasali kung hindi sa aming favorite na 5km fun run. Hahaha! Forte na namin ang fun runs dahil kami ay very fun-loving people. Echos! I’m with my colleagues Dyan and April and registered under our company’s group.

It was a success. We all received a finisher’s medal after crossing the finish line. And of course after we successfully completed the ‘5km’ run (syempre proud kaming nakatapos kahit pagod na pagod na),  we strolled around the venue to check for each booth’s freebies.

Ang cute ng mga bagets sa Kids Zone, we’re watching them trying out the games at each booth. And there’s also a massage tent but only for the ‘Full Marathoners’. Hahaha ang daya.

Next year, we’re ‘planning’ to level up our skills by joining the ’10km’ category. Hahaha asa langSyemay kayanin kaya namin?! Pero for now, pa expert muna kami sa fun runs. 🙂 Here are some pics from the awarding ceremony.

Next year kelangan ng lumevel up, hehehe! 🙂
