Singapore Marathon announces new partnership and unveils designs of race apparel and medals
As they prepare for a return to a full-scale event in December this year, the IRONMAN Group, organisers of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), have made a series of announcements today advising on a new partnership and designs for race apparel and medals.
Race organisers announced the first time partnership with global sportswear brand PUMA. PUMA will be the Official Apparel and Footwear sponsor at this year’s event, outfitting participants across three days from 2nd to 4th December with the leading apparel brand producing this year’s Official SCSM 2022 Running Singlet, Marathon 42.195km Finisher T-Shirt, Kids Dash T-Shirt, and other event apparel.
All participants in the Marathon 42.195km, Half Marathon 21.1km, 10km, 5km categories will receive the Official SCSM 2022 Running Singlet.
The running footwear features an advanced foam technology that is infused with nitrogen gas. This allows the footwear to be more responsive, fitted with better cushioning and providing a lightweight feel—all to achieve a more effortless run.
Both the running singlet and Finisher tee feature breathable fabric, incorporating PUMA's signature dryCELL technology. Together with its moisture-wicking properties, runners feel comfortable and ready to optimise their performance in the road race events.
Santoz Kumar, General Manager of Singapore for The IRONMAN Group advised “having PUMA join the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon family as the Official Apparel and Footwear sponsor for this year’s event is a strong win for us. Their focus on innovation and close ties to the running community are values that we share. As we return to a full-scale event this year, we look forward to seeing participants proudly donning this year’s Running Singlet on race day and Marathon 42.195km runners wearing their Finisher Tee with pride after their races.”
Sanjay Roy, General Manager, PUMA (Southeast Asia) added “PUMA is proud to be the Official Apparel and Footwear sponsor for The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM) this year. Running has always been a key focus for PUMA, coupled with a push in performance distance running in the recent years, we are thrilled to be part of the nation’s headlining event. SCSM thrives on uplifting its growing running community in Singapore. With the values of determination and resilience, we look forward to offering the SCSM community unparalleled experiences, going the distance together, Forever Faster with PUMA.”
In addition, the partnership also launches the PUMA Pacers, a 70-strong contingent who will lead runners in the Marathon 42.195km and Half Marathon 21.1km to complete their race in their desired race time. The PUMA Pacers will be put through a curated 16-week training plan by The Running Department, a local running club, in the weeks leading up to the big race. SCSM2022 participants who are looking to kickstart their training journey and go beyond their personal bests, can join the PUMA Pacers in eight public SCSM Training Runs.
Organisers also revealed the SCSM 2022 category medal design that feature the emblem that is part of the new SCSM logo unveiled earlier this year, showcasing two of Singapore’s most famous icons: the Merlion and the Orchid.
Runners taking part in this year’s ‘Double Up Challenge’ will receive the exclusive Finisher medal, on top of their respective category medals. This year’s design also includes the city’s prominent landmarks and attractions, such as Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer. Participants of the Double Up Challenge can take part in the 5km or 10km run on Saturdays, and Marathon 41.195km or Half Marathon 21.1km event on Sunday.
Participants will be awarded their respective medal upon finishing their event on 2nd – 4th December 2022.
Finally, the T-shirt and medal design for the Kids Dash category was unveiled. Parents can register their children (aged between two – 12 years old) from 5th August. Taking place on 2nd December from 6pm to 9pm, parents get to create SCSM memories with their children as they run a 650m route along the iconic F1 Pit Building. Children under the age of six years old must be accompanied by a parent..
