To all my fellow marathoners out there, I have bad news for you.
This year, two highly-anticipated runs will be cancelled.
The Singapore Army Half-Marathon and the SAFRA Singapore Bay Run (though you can consider them as one run lah).
Yes, my dear NSFs, no more runs to train for the AHM. And no more running by the bay with the scene cityscape.
It’s Not Because of Safety Timeout
The Singapore Army announced on their Facebook page that they will be cancelling both iconic marathons this year.
And the reason, however, isn’t because of the recent deaths that happened in the SAF so far.
Instead, they put the SAFRA Singapore Bay Run and Army Half Marathon on the backburner this year because they’re too busy with the Singapore bicentennial commemoration.
It was added that they’ve done the exact same thing back in 2015 when they had to support SG50 events.
But don’t be too disappointed, they’ll be reviewing to see if they can reinstate both runs.
In other words, if you’re disappointed at the cancellation, got chance.
