Sundown Marathon was created in 2008 as part of a unique training programme for ultra-marathons that require running through the night. Since then, as Singapore’s first official night marathon, the Sundown Marathon has grown from strength-to-strength, beginning with 6000+ participants in the inaugural race in 2008 to a total of 25,000 participants in 2019 across all four categories, making it Asia’s largest night marathon. Participants have included tourists and professional runners from the UK, USA, France, China, India, Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan.
It was unfortunate that the 2020 Sundown Marathon had to be cancelled as the world came to an almost standstill, crippled by the vicious Coronovirus. Sundown take the safeguarding of the health and wellbeing of our runners, sponsors and crew as top priority, as well as providing an optimum environment to run Sundown. Thus birthed this conception for a virtual run as the covid situation eased but keeping in mind continued safety practice during physical exercises.
