UNDER 3 HOURS 18 MINUTES

Ms Stella Lee is aiming to clock a personal best at next Sunday's Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. The magic number to beat: 3hr 18min.

But the 37-year-old has another fervent wish: That she and her husband Joe Kwan, 34, who is also running in the same event, will reach the finish line at the same time. He clocked 4:19 last year.

UNDER 8 HOURS

Retired teacher Agia Kaur will be attempting her first marathon next Sunday - at age 73.

This has been her life-long dream, but it was delayed by career, marriage and raising three children.

Now widowed, she hopes to complete the distance in under eight hours.

She says: "I don't believe when people say,

'This is impossible, that is impossible'."
