The Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2014 took place last Sunday.
The crazy me decided to wake up early to take some photos of the event. It was quite convenient because the train service extended their operating hours for the marathon. I decided to catch the first runner somewhere around the 37KM mark where there is an overhead bridge from MBS to GBTB.
Kenya’s Kenneth Mungara was the first to reach my location. He went on to be the first to cross the finish line in the Elite Men’s Open category at 2 hours 16 minutes and 40 seconds. In the Elite Women’s Open category, Amare Wagnesh of Ethiopia got first place with a time of 2 hours 46 minutes and 53 seconds.
Mok Ying Ren was the first male Singaporean to cross the finish line at 2 hours 53 minutes and 43 seconds. Rachel See won the Local Women’s Open category with 3 hours 17 minutes and 13 seconds.
Here are some of the photos that I took at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore.
