Congratulations to all winners and finishers of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2014!
Sunday, 12 October saw over 30,000 runners and supporters from the novice to the elite runners converging at Dataran Merdeka. A hearty Congratulations to each and every one of you and we hope that lots of personal bests were set and personal goals were achieved!
Special congratulations to our Champions, Kennedy Kiproo Lilan, the overall Champion of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon who finished in an impressive time of 2’17:47 and Mugo Hellen Wanjiku emerged the ladies’ champion with a finishing time of 2’42:22. Both Lilan and Wanjiku are from Kenya. This is the fourth straight win for Kennedy at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon and a first for Wanjiku. It was also the first time Wanjiku participated in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon.
Our fellow Malaysians did not disappoint. Muhaizar Mohamad walked away the champion of the Malaysian Men’s category with an impressive time of 2’41:11 while Loh Chooi Fern emerged the winner of the Malaysian Women’s category with a finishing time of 3’25:52. Both are first time winners of the Standard Chartered KL Marathon. We most definitely have not seen the last of those two!
I’m sure a lot of you, as were we, were watching out for our esteemed Minister of Youth and Sports, Y. B. En. Khairy Jamaluddin to cross the finish line. Citing a finishing time of 60 minutes in the MSIG 10km category as his target, Y.B. En. Khairy proved to be a man of his word and crossed the finish line with an impressive time of 59:36. Tahniah, Y. B!
