Running A Marathon
This MOC is dedicated to my father who ran a 10km marathon today.
About this creation


The whole MOC. Took me 5 minutes to build this.



My Dad, running past us. He ran in the 2010 Standard Chartered Marathon here in Singapore. He was joined by 21,000 other runners, the youngest being 14 years old and the oldest runner at 81 years old.



From the left: My mother, my younger brother and me cheering my dad on.



Besides the 10km marathon, there were also two other race categories. The Half Marathon, which is 22km long. 15,000 people participated in the Half Marathon.



Then there was the Full Marathon. It is a 42km long race with 19,000 participants this year. The winners for both the women and men categories for the Full Marathon were both Kenyans. That makes it an 8 year winning streak for them.



All three runners. A record 60,000 people ran today.



Other spectators.





The MOC without the minifigs. Fully studless.

Standard Chartered, the title sponsor of this marathon.



And my dad, running the race. He did not finish in first place, but at least he finished the race.


Way to go! We Love You!

Very simple, but it don't need more complexity. Happy birthday!

A clean build and a nice way to honor your father. And thank you for your invitation to the 'LEGO at its best' group, but I must decline your offer. I have to learn a lot more about building, so I donīt have any 'best' MOCs at the moment and probably not in the near future. But thank you for the offer.

Neat!

Creative, but the write-up confused me... 10 kilometers isn't a marathon. A standard marathon is about 42 kilometers long. Still, creative MOC.

Awesome job but I was confused at the 10km marathon part, lol. A great MOC anyways!

I think the single best thing about this MOC is that there is a guy in full construction gear, including a hard hat, running a marathon. I want to be that guy.
