SCKLM2014 - Let's Sign Up!

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014 was officially launched today at the Pacific Regency, Kuala Lumpur. Into its 6th year, SCKLM 2014 will be expected to be more fun and exciting.

Organised by Dirigo Events Sdn. Bhd with title sponsor Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Bhd, the event was officiated by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Yang Berhormat Encik Khairy Jamaluddin who is also the first person to sign up for the race. He will be running 10km (Speed). Bravo YB!
With participation increasing every year since its inception, last year’s Standard Chartered KL Marathon registered more than 33,800 runners.  This year, the organiser is expecting more running enthusiasts to be part of Malaysia’s biggest running event with 35,000 slots opened to the public.

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014, to be flagged off at Dataran Merdeka, will also see some new routes introduced to the runners.
