Last: An Untold Runner's Story

History hails the victor, but runners who tackle races for pride and personal goals, rather than pace, are rarely recognized. As the marathon season is upon us, a new Nike Running film, Last, celebrates not only the last athlete who crosses the finish line, but also the imperfect journey of every runner.

Anyone can be a runner; all you have to do is run.

Nike was created by runners for runners and continues to celebrate the sport at all distances. From Finding Your Fast to long distance marathons, Nike continues to inspire and push runners, recognizing the hard work and commitment runners put into the their running.

Last celebrates a runner’s sheer determination and personal triumph to finish the race.

Stay On Pace With 21 Faces SCKLM 2015

Stay On Pace With 21 Faces Of The
 Standard Chartered KL Marathon!  

Kuala Lumpur, 21 September 2015 – For many Malaysian runners, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon has created many fond memories, such as running their first Marathon, or a start of a journey into distance running. For KK Yum, this year’s Standard Chartered KL Marathon will mark his 6th time running the event, and he will be part of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon pacers.

He and 20 other pacers will be tasked with ensuring runners are able to cross the finish line in their desired times. The task however will not be an easy one, as pacers will need to stay focused throughout the challenging 42.195 km course. However, KK Yum is determined to motivate runners from start to finish.

He says “I love to run and I think it is great fun for everyone. As a pacer, I want to motivate runners and hope to put some “liveliness” into them. I look forward to sharing great moments with my fellow runners on race day as a pacer!”

Race owner and organiser of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon and Director of Dirigo Events, Rainer Biemans said “Every year runners set a goal to go faster and having help just makes it much easier. Having said that, volunteering to be a pacer is not easy, as you have to remain focused and have the discipline as they are playing an important role for other runners. I would like to say thank you to all pacers for volunteering their time and energy.”

The pacers of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon consist of experienced runners whom have run many Marathons (42.195 km) across Malaysia and around the world.

Hailing from Belgium, Luc Bodard who has joined the Standard Chartered KL Marathon since 2008, became a pacer in 2014. Enjoying the experience and the challenge, Luc Bodard says “As a pacer, your role is different and it gives running another dimension. Last year I volunteered as a pacer and enjoyed the experience of bringing the runners across the finish line in 3 hours and 27 minutes. I am looking forward to again helping runners achieve their goal this year.”

Runners looking to break their personal best in the 42.195 km category or determined to finish the course at a set time in mind can look out for the respective pacers on race day.

The 21 pacers of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon received their official pacer vests from race owner and organiser of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon, Dirigo Events and the official apparel suppliers of the Marathon, adidas in a handover ceremony that took place at the adidas store in The Gardens recently.

The 2015 Standard Chartered KL Marathon is once again made possible by title sponsor Standard Chartered Bank, and along with event owner and organiser, Dirigo Events Sdn. Bhd. and co-organiser Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur.

The Marathon is also supported by Gold Sponsors, MSIG Insurance and Honda Malaysia, as well as Official Partners, Seiko, Pacific Regency Hotel Group, F&N and Race owner and organiser, Dirigo Events Sdn. Bhd. also welcomes German sports-goods maker; adidas who is the Official Apparel brand for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015. Additionally, Salonpas, GP Battery, Repucom and Phiten join the Standard Chartered KL Marathon as Official Suppliers completing the list of supporting brands.
