The half marathon has a wider appeal than its Marathon older brother, and is viewed as a more achievable feat by non-elite or serious runners.
Half Marathon (21.1km)
3 December 4.30AM – Orchard Road
The 21.1km still requires a serious level of training, however, and brings with it its own set of challenges. Many runners use the half marathon as a stepping stone towards the marathon but it’s a very testing run in its own right. Some of the world’s best long distance runners focus their careers on the half and are able to set some incredible average speeds in this category. The half is a perfect run for those looking to step up from the 10km and test the long distance discipline.
Total Ascent: 176 metres Total Descent: 196 metres
