I'm Running in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon

The title says it all. I am running in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon on 24th June 2012. Not exactly doing the half marathon though I am quite keen. 

Some will find it strange that I am opting for the 10 km cruise category wearing my latest wig - a green one which I received from the St Patrick's media launch yesterday. I normally run with a cap but this time I will run with a wig and see how long I can last. Wigs are darn hot and stuffy and I can't imagine how I am going to run 10km in it. 
like my new green wig?
However, I am determined to do run my 10km from the beginning to the end with my wig. And I ask in return that you donate RM5 for every km that I running. The monies goes to 2 charities that is close to my heart:
Bentong Farm Sanctuary by Shahrul 
Rescue DBKL Dogs by Puspa Rani
A detailed post will be made over the week on payment arrangements.

Meanwhile, those of you who want to run (or walk), then head over to www.kl-marathon.com to register. Of course you can also register at any of the 15 branches of Standard Chartered banks nationwide although I would still prefer online registration to minimise paper work and typo errors:P

In a gist there are quite a few categories (interesting ones too):
• 42.2 km
• 21.1 km
• 10 km (Speed, Cruise, Leisure)
• 5 km
• MSIG Ekiden which is now opened to public
• Kids dash 2.5km and 700m (all taken up...)
• Run for a cause (brilliant idea)
• Ministries Challenge
• Universities Challenge
For the uninitiated this is the 4th installment of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon series. This year we're gonna be seeing 27,000 runners! Its actually a very fun run since you'll be checking out KL on your 2 legs:D
