INTRO

The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon is the leading mass participation run and only IAAF Gold Label race in South East Asia. Since 2002, the race has brought runners unparalleled running experiences, threading through the heart of the city seeing iconic heritage buildings and against one of the world’s most iconic city skylines and past some of Singapore’s iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay. Comprising six categories; Marathon, Half Marathon, Ekiden Relay, 10km and Kids Dash, the race has been a catalyst to growing the local and regional running community, by bringing together approximately 50,000 professional, amateur, avid and leisure runners yearly. 

 

RUN COURSES

For the culmination of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM) virtual racing series, ROUVY released 2 courses for augmented group running.  Athletes will run through the streets of Singapore virtually, creating a world-class experience for runners around the world. This new format will be free of charge for runners in place of the traditional race due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

 

Following 13 weeks of the SCSM Virtual Racing series, the Grand Finale, starting from 27 November through to 6 December, offers runners (both locally and around the world), an opportunity to run together and utilize their treadmills on ROUVY on 2 routes: SCSM Grand Finale ROUVY AR 10KM and SCSM Grand Finale ROUVY AR Half Marathon.

Adopting a hybrid race format, runners can register for the outdoor or indoor race option with a compatible tracking device or join the immersive augmented reality (AR) format powered by ROUVY on a treadmill. The AR format will allow overseas runners to traverse through the spectacular cityscapes in the ‘Best of Singapore’ routes.

 

 

The Half Marathon and 10K routes featured in the AR format have been specially curated in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to feature some of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks and scenic streetscapes such as Orchard Road, Little India, Chinatown, the Civic District and more.

    Hi, do you plan more routes for runners and challenges as you do for bikers?
    • yuriy888 - 01.02.2021
      Hi, the routes are updated on a constant basis periodically. For the running Challenges... on the roadmap. However, those may take longer to come but there will be running events throughout the year. Thanks for the feedback and stay tuned.

    Salve, sono riuscito a connettere la fascia cardiaca per il passo, velocità, etc. devo connettermi con uno foot pod tipo Stryd?
    • yuriy888 - 04.01.2021
      Hi, yes. For any further setup assistance please contact our help desk at support@rouvy.com. Cheers.

    This is great! I signed up and will complete it this week. Looking forward to more of these virtual events.
    • yuriy888 - 01.12.2020
      Have a great run!
      • Selinda - 05.12.2020
        Completed the race, it shows up on the dashboard of the SCSM Virtual Club website, but doesn't show as completed on the official race page. Am wondering if it's because the AR course only goes to 9.92 km? The race rules state we must run 10K up to max 11K. Rouvy, could you check that with SCSM? Are they counting the virtual course as the 10K?
        • yuriy888 - 14.12.2020
          Cutenekko, pls submit this request to support@rouvy.com for the check. Thank you.
  • maxburj - 27.11.2020
    Great idea, its such a boost to be able to partake in AR races in these difficult times. Looking forward to it. If you can add a VR course for the Bolton Ironman course bike leg, I'd be extreeeeeemly grateful!
    • yuriy888 - 30.11.2020
      Thanks for the feedback. Bolton course is in the works for running. The cycling version will eventually arrive as well. Enjoy!
