Date of 2015 SEA Games will be key to marathon idea: Major-General (NS) Chan Chun Sing

SINGAPORE: Scheduling will be a key determinant if the annual Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore will stage the race for the 2015 SEA Games here, according to Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Chan Chun Sing.

Last week, Singapore Sports Council (SSC) CEO Lim Teck Yin told Today he is mulling the idea of having the marquee event as a part of the 2015 SEA Games to enhance even further the buzz and atmosphere of the race.

Speaking on the sidelines of the race at the Padang on Sunday, Major-General (NS) Chan said: "It all depends on when we organise the SEA Games, which we still have to discuss with the SEA Games Federation.

"There are pluses and minuses of having the two (events) coincide either at the same time or near the same time. In terms of organisational capabilities, it will demand quite a lot from the SSC and the rest of Singapore.

"But there are also benefits, such as in terms of the publicity ... so we have to look at that and examine the schedule for the build-up towards the 2015 SEA Games."

Singapore were named hosts of the 2015 SEA Games during last month's SEA Games Federation council meeting in Palembang, and it will be the first time the Republic will host South-east Asia's biggest multi-sport event since 1993.

Slated to be ready by April 2014, the S$1.33 billion Sports Hub is expected to be the main venue for the 2015 Games, and possibly the start and finish points for the marathon races.

This year's Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, which offered a total prize purse of S$401,650, attracted a record 65,000 runners. There were also a record 20,000 runners in the men's and women's 42.195km full marathon.

The race is gaining a reputation as one of Asia's leading marathons and the SSC are seeking "gold" label certification status from the sport's world body, the International Association of Athletics Federations.

MG (NS) Chan, who flagged-off the full marathon race at Orchard Road at 5am on Sunday, said: "I looked at the organising of the event, and obviously, the logistical challenges are tremendous for such a big event. As we want to grow the event further, we have to look at these challenges and see how we can overcome them."
