Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore race organiser Geoff Meyer said on Sunday (4 Dec) that 29-year-old male runner died after collapsing during its half-marathon event. The participant died in hospital, said Meyer.

In a statement Meyer said: “A 29-year-old male collapsed 1km from the finish line. He was immediately attended to, immediately transported to hospital. Our main priority and focus is the family, and we’re working with them to make sure that they are fully supported in everything that we possibly can do with them.”

This is not the first time that a participant has died at the annual event. In 2011, Malcolm Sng (age 22) died after completing a similar half-marathon. It was later discovered that he suffered from a heart condition, and had died from acute coronary insufficiency.

About 46,000 people took part in the race today.Follow us on Social Media
