1st International Melaka River Marathon 2014 was held on 8 Jun 2014.
"It came as no surprise when the endurance-hardened Kenyan runners pocketed a major portion of the monetary takings and dominated six out of the eight open categories at the Malacca River International Marathon.
The race, held in conjunction with the month-long Melaka River Festival 2014, offered a whopping RM120,000 in prize money." More report from TheStar here
The 2014 eye-brow medal design was impressive and unique.
