The Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM) entered into a long-term exclusive partnership with the Wanda Sports Group in 2017 giving them the exclusive rights to identify three major marathon events for potential inclusion in the AbbottWMM series by entering into the candidate race process.

Since the beginning of the partnership, two races have been put forth by Wanda to be included in that process - the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon and the Chengdu Marathon.

Following the sale of The IRONMAN Group (who operates the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon) by the Wanda Sports Group, the Singapore race is no longer a part of that candidate process. Wanda Sports Group has the exclusive right to put forward these races.

We would like to thank all those connected to the Singapore race for their partnership and collaboration over the years.
