Registered for Singapore's marquee running event and looking to collect your race bib for this weekend's Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon?


Whether this is your first marathon experience or your tenth, here we will try to make your race entry pack collection experience a little bit easier by showing you the things you must not miss when attending 2023 Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon Sports and Healthy Lifestyle Expo, the largest in the region!

Join SportPlus.sg creator Haw Jia Xuan as she walks us through 9 things runners must not miss at this year's race expo in part 2 of our five part series "Inside Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon".


1. Race Entry Pack Collection


Your first stop once you reach Marina Bay Sands, Convention Centre Hall F (basement 2) will be to collect your race bibs. Remember to bring along your confirmation slip with QR Code that was sent to you via email.

Organisers recommend that you show it on your smartphones, in an email titled "Reminder: You are registered for an upcoming event" that was sent by IRONMAN Asia.


Queues can get a little longer over lunch time and in the evenings, so we recommend visiting the Expo during off peak hours if possible.


Remember to check that you have received your race bib and race tee / singlet before heading off to the next area: Runners' Experience Zone!


If you are unable to collect your race pack and need a friend to collect your bib and race singlet on your behalf, just remember that each particiapant is only allowed to collect on behalf of two more participants, and appropriate authorisation documentation is required in order to do so.


Also, do note that there is a separate queue to collect the transparent bag for bag drop if you paid for it.

2. Standard Chartered Bank Booth


Once you've collected your race pack, you'll first see the Standard Chartered Bank booth! Here, you can stand to get a complimentary iTab when you sign up for a Standard Chartered Credit Card bundle at the Standard Chartered booth, the iTab is a small, personalised medal accessory that is engraved with your name and finish time. You can drop by the Standard Chartered booth to find out more!


3. Photo with SCSM Mascots


In the Runners' Experience Zone you will find two cute event mascots roaming around! This is a great opportunity for you to take photos for Instagram or any of your social media. Snap away!

4. LED Photo Lightbox


There is also the signature green and blue LED Photo Light booth to get your photos taken. Strike your most creative pose with your race bibs and race tees. There are some who say that if you don't do so, you never really visited the race expo!


5. SCSM Pledge Wall


Right beside the LED Photo Lightbooth you will see a wall with marker pens hung on the side. Write your well wishes for runners or leave your mark on the running club or community that you represent on this wall!


6. Running Department Pacer Wall


A little further down, you'll find the Running Department Pacer Wall. Get familiarised with the different pacers from different pace groups who will be pacing the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon this year.


Running with a pacer will help you get across the finish line within your desired target time, particularly when you start to tire during the marathon.

7. Treadmill Challenge


Why not hop on the treadmill to put your running prowess to the test? The treadmill challenge here basically is a challenge that requires you to run at the fastest you can for a duration of one minute or 60 seconds! Stand to win attractive prizes if you come out tops!

8. Merhandise Zone - PUMA


Once you are done with the Runners' Experience Zone, walk through a set of plastic sheets into the Merchandise Zone and be wowed by some incredible displays from this year's Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon apparel sponsors PUMA.


Choose from a wide range of running shoes to official marathon merch, and even get your foot scan done. Or feast your eyes on a fantastic display of PUMA technology.

9. Expo Booths


You will last pass through a long section of booths comprising Active Lifestyle and Sports related apparel and gadgets. Get fantastic discounts off incredible products, or find out more about some of the most popular overseas events such as the Sydney Marathon or Gold Coast Marathon.


Choose from top end sports glasses like Oakley, Sunday Shades or Goodr, to innovative travel bagbacks from Bold.co! And don't forget to stay hydrated with the event's official hydration sponsor 100PLUS!
