We have been getting a lot of requests to open new slots and we are going to do exactly that. We have 200 Half Marathon slots and 500 Full Marathon slots available as of today. To be fair, qualification for entry will be by a ballot system. If you are keen to try for a slot at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015, please submit your ballot application from now till 6.00pm on 6 August.
Your ballot application does not automatically guarantee you a running entry. Entries will be awarded at random by computer voting. Successful applicants will then be notified via email on 7 August 2015 with instructions on how to register.
Registrations must then be completed and submitted to the organiser by 15 August 2015
Please note that this is for runners who have not yet registered for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon so if you or you have friends and family who missed out on registrations earlier, do submit your ballots.
Step by Step Guide on how to participate in the ballot can be found here.

21km was under-distanced by about 0.6km, it was a very challenging route with plenty of rolling hills and the presence of strong contenders offered good opportunity to measure one's competitive level. But runner's safety were compromised- open traffic, speeding cars, no cones, lack of marshals.
The event has not much changes since we first joined in year 2009. The only changes is the event only open to Malaysian and foreigners joined as guests runners. Prizes for 4 - 20th were distributed after winners crossing finishing line. It was efficient, however, problem arise when there was a dispute. It happened to Women Open 21km.
Next year the organizer need to look into the distance and runners safety seriously. Also to invite more exciting and interesting performance, otherwise the event will loose out runners and only left with school boys and girls.
