Upon achieving the qualifying mark or better, SAA will reimburse the full amount to you.

Soh Rui Yong quote,

“The roaring Copenhagen crowd and fine competition helped me to a new personal best of 68min 18sec, breaking my previous best by 57sec.

Time for some rest! If all goes well, I will try for the Singapore half marathon record of 67min 53sec at the Eugene Half Marathon on 29 July.

Thank you all for your support!”

Mok Ying Ren quote,

“No Personal Best but good run of 70:15 for me! Congrats to Rui Yong who ran a massive PB of 68:18!! Feeling smashed! Thank you all of you in Singapore!!”
