Standard Chartered KL Marathon makes way into the Malaysian Book of Records
Kuala Lumpur, 22 June 2013 – Back for the fifth year, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM), Malaysia’s most anticipated running event will welcome more than 33,000 runners on 30 June at Dataran Merdeka. This represents a 144 per cent growth since its first year in 2009 (at 13,500 runners). Following the overwhelming response, the Marathon made history this year by racing into the Malaysia Book of Records as the largest participation in a marathon in the country. The last record was achieved in 2011 with 27,500 runners by a marathon in Penang.
More than 27,000 participants took part in the race last year. This year, the Marathon will see more than 33,000 participants from all around the world.
With the theme, “Run for a Reason”, the Marathon will start and end at one of Malaysia’s most historical sites, Dataran Merdeka. This year’s Marathon comprises of 19 categories; provides participation opportunities for all walks of life to run with different and unique reasons. On the whole, the Marathon attracts some 3,600 foreign runners from 73 nationalities to the event.
Rainer Biemans, Director of Dirigo Events who own and manage the Standard Chartered KL Marathon said, “This year marks a historic milestone for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon as it enters the Malaysia Book of Records while celebrating its fifth-year running. The Marathon has grown from strength to strength over the years. The organisers will be teaming up with various authorities to provide the best possible service to participants and the public during the nation's largest marathon.”
“We are proud and glad to see that Standard Chartered KL Marathon created a new record for the largest participation in a marathon in the Human Achievement category. This only goes to show that the Marathon has evolved to be more than just a running event – it’s a nation-building engagement, which cultivates the sporting culture and continues to attract runners from across Malaysia and worldwide, in line with our brand’s promise to be Here for Good,” said Liz Kamaruddin, Country Head of Corporate Affairs, Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Berhad.
In conjunction with the Marathon, the organisers launched various activities prior to the event for the benefit of the runners who have registered to take part in the race as well as for the running community.

Venue: Centro Klang
This annual event that take runners 12km around the Centro Mall around the Klang area has always been a favorite and the tickets usually get sold out fast. Despite clashed with Olympic Day Run (postponed), Chicken Run, Perodua, Mardi Trail, the tickets sold out quite early this year too. Since the run is managed by the very experienced committee members of the Klang Pacers Athletic Club, the run was well organized in terms of aid station, and all the junctions were well marshaled.
There is still room for safety though, because some of us can really felt fast cars sharing our running lane, due to the fact that 80% of the route are made of main roads. Say what you like, but it undeniable that there are still so many Malaysian drivers that don't have much respect for runners or cyclist, and even though it is a Sunday morning when traffic is suppose to be low, you wont missed those fast cars racing by. Perhaps some cones might give some extra reminders to the drivers to be extra alert of the runners.
But the highlight of this race day is not traffic but Jerebu the annual haze. We ran 12km in the midst of Klang valley being covered by haze. Seriously Klang valley has been doing ok, but it seems that the situation got worsened since 2 days ago. So it was rather quite a struggle racing when every time you gasp for air, you can sense the strong burning smell. It was rather challenging mentally but it seems that there were no negative reports. But by the time we left the Centro Mall, we can hardly see any of the tall building around us.
