Singapore Athletics partners with IRONMAN Asia for National Championships

SINGAPORE – The partnership, will see Singapore Athletics Association (SAA) continue to sanction the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), the region’s only International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Gold Label race.

 

Team Singapore athletes who have already confirmed participation include Pierre de Coubertin World Fair Play Trophy winner Ashley Liew, Jasmine Goh, Neo Jie Shi, Fang Jian Yong, and 3rd place finisher at SCMS 2015, Evan Chee, who is managed by ONEathlete. Other ONEathlete marathoners, Soh Hua Qun and Ben Moreau are also expected to race at this signature event.

As part of the organiser’s tie-up with The Straits Times Run, the weekly #RunWithMok column and #RunONE training plan by Mok Ying Ren, will both be published on Saturdays.

 

7-time SCMS Singapore Men’s Champion & Team Singapore athlete Mok Ying Ren (who is managed by ONEathlete) also welcomed the partnership saying “We’ve had the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon for many years now, and many of us have run this race growing up. The event has grown tremendously both in scale and quality, so hosting the National Championship here makes sense, and will certainly strike a chord with competitive runners in Singapore. I am confident that it would be an opportunity for a finer display of local sportsmanship and emergence of more young local running talents.”
