SCKLM2016: Registration Dates

You have blocked your calendar for Sunday 7th August 2016 to run Malaysia's most anticipated race Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2016 (SCKLM). Now make sure you lock your calendars to register for the slots. Runner’s registration will begin from Tuesday 15th March 2016. Being the 8th installation of SCKLM’, I reckon this race will sell out even faster!


A new staggered registration system will be introduced to ensure a better registration experience for runners as it simplifies the online registration process and lessens the chances of web-traffic congestion. Participants of SCKLM 2015 will be given priority to register for the 2016 event due to last year’s race cancellation caused by the haze. 2015 returning participants will receive an automatic 25% discount when they register for 2016. 
Note: Winners from the Instagram contest in 2015 are not entitled to the 25% discount and priority registration. Registration for the winners will be on Saturday 19th March 2016.
The fees are as follows:

The official cut-off time of the full marathon has been extended to 7 hours to reduce route congestion. A checkpoint system, commonly practised in international marathons, will also be implemented this year. Runners will need to reach each checkpoint within a designated time or will be shuttled back to Dataran Merdeka. 

Other initiatives to look forward to this year include the Friendship Run and Pasta Party, which will be held on the eve of the race. Opened only to Full Marathon participants, the event aims to foster camaraderie amongst runners from around the world.
