Singapore, 4 August 2022 – The IRONMAN Group, organisers of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), has made a series of announcements today as it gears up for a return to a full-scale event in December this year.


PUMA the Official Apparel and Footwear Sponsor


Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2022 Race organisers announced that global sportswear brand PUMA will be the Official Apparel and Footwear sponsor at this year’s event, outfitting participants across three days from 2 to 4 December.


This marks the first time that SCSM is partnering PUMA, 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.

From 1 September 2022, the public can head down to PUMA’s new flagship store at 313@Somerset to view and try on the sizes of the Running Singlet, Marathon Finisher, and Kids Dash apparels prior to race registration.


While at the store, they may also enjoy a 20% storewide discount*, including the new PUMA

Nitro footwear. More information on the discount will be shared on SCSM social media channels on 31 August. (*product exclusions apply. Weekdays only)


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 while 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.


More exclusive designs will be sold at the PUMA merchandise store in SCSM’s Race Expo. Details of the Race Expo will be shared at a later date.

"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," said Santoz Kumar, General Manager of Singapore for The IRONMAN Group.


Added Sanjay Roy, General Manager, PUMA (Southeast Asia), "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. More details will be shared via SCSM official website and social media pages.
