In my personal opinion, I think the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM) is nowhere close to the value and quality of GCAM. In the FM category of SCSM, the route along the final 3-5kms are congested with the crowd from FM, HM and 10km participants. It is hard for FM runners, even those who run with 3:00 - 3:30 timing, to run; they had to zigzag to get around. Runners also have difficulty to get to the water/isotonic stations in the final few kilometres due to the congestion. I would give the race 3 thumbs down.
