Defying Limits: The Inspiring Journey of Dr. Zac Leow to the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon

By 6th December 2023No Comments

iTAB is thrilled to announce the renewal of its partnership with the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM), marked with a powerful marketing collaboration that showcases the remarkable story of ex-Para athlete, Dr. Zac Leow.

In a compelling episode of the iTAB Stars video series, produced by iTAB, Dr. Zac Leow shares his incredible journey of resilience and triumph over adversity. Following a devastating spinal cord accident that initially left him with the grim prognosis of never walking again, let alone running, Zac defied all odds. Not only did he run a marathon the very next year, but he also went on to represent his country in track events, securing a silver medal at the ASEAN Para Games.

Zac had previously run the Singapore Marathon in 2012, before the life-altering accident, and again in 2014. Now, nearly a decade later, fuelled by a desire to inspire his two-year-old daughter, Zac is gearing up to run his home marathon once again. In a remarkable feat, he aims to set a new Guinness World Record for a Para athlete running a marathon, striving to beat a time of 05:30:00. Adding a touch of serendipity, the Singapore Marathon falls on December 3rd, the same day as his daughter’s birthday.

Zac’s journey is a testament to unwavering strength, boundless optimism, and unyielding determination. iTAB and SCSM wish Zac the very best luck as he takes on this significant challenge at his hometown marathon.

The Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon stands as the leading mass participation run and the only World Athletics Gold Label race in Southeast Asia. As the official personalization partner of SCSM, iTAB is poised to cheer on the 50,000-strong field of professional, avid, and leisure runners, each pursuing their own personal milestones.

Join us in celebrating the spirit of determination, resilience, and the pursuit of extraordinary goals at the upcoming Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon. Dr. Zac Leow’s journey, featured in the iTAB Stars video series, embodies the essence of the event, reminding us all that with perseverance, every finish line is within reach.
