Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2008

Finally, the much anticipated event for runners has arrived. Into its 7th year, there were 50,000 participants registered to run today. While I was still sleeping, the full and half marathoners were flagged off at 5.30am and 6.30am respectively. Men and Women 10km were at 7.30am and 8.30am respectively.

World Champion Keyan Luke Kibet won the Men's Open category with a timing of 2:12:03. The Singapore Men's and Women's Open category came in with a timing of 2:49:42 and 2:56:31 respectively. Well done guys!
