It was a cozy and windy afternoon, where SCKLM 2013 launched on 19 Feb 2013 at Standard Chartered KL Park. Many are unaware of the existence of the park, but like the Youth and Sports minister mentioned it is a beautiful and romantic park.
The park is facilitated with comfortable and colorful chairs. Apparently this part is sponsor by Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia and it is just next to KLCC.
Guests and media arrived and welcome by staff. Polices are here too to support the event.
Speeches by VIPs are short and simple. Rainer Biemans, event director announced that 30,000 runners target is fast approaching. With the rate of growing, the registration might closed within 2 weeks. So for those runners who are still uncertain whether to sign-up, better hurry up to avoid disappointment.
The response from guests and media is encourging
