Warm greetings from all of us at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon!
We are proud to announce that the Marathon is back again for the 8th year and is scheduled for Sunday, 7 August 2016 at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur - so save the date!
This year we are introducing some new and exciting elements in hopes of enhancing your race day experience. We are also opening registrations with priority given to runners who signed up last year and couldn't run due to the cancellation. There will also be a new cut-off time and checkpoint system in place and new running singlet sizing so please do take the time to read on.
A new staggered registration system will be introduced to ensure a smooth registration experience for runners.
In addition, participants of SCKLM 2015 (individual & RFAR) will be given priority to register for the 2016 event due to last year’s race cancellation caused by the haze. Further details of the staggered registrations, please click here.
This year's SCKLM running singlets and Full Marathon finisher T-shirt sizes are slightly different compared to last year's. Please refer to the size and comparison chart below and select accordingly. These charts can also be found here.
NEW CUT-OFF TIME & CHECKPOINT SYSTEM
With support from DBKL & KL Traffic Police, the official cut-off time for the full marathon has been extended to 7 hours and 3.5 hours for the half marathon. However, a checkpoint system, commonly practised in international marathons, will also be implemented for full marathon this year. Runners will need to reach each checkpoint within a designated time or will be shuttled back to Dataran Merdeka. For more information on the new checkpoint system, click here.
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. Space is limited and registration is on a first-come-first-served basis.
RUN FOR A REASON
Every year, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon takes another step towards becoming a true community event and helping the less fortunate through our Run For A Reason (RFAR) programme. If you are interested in raising funds for one of our official charity partners, you can do so by participating in the RFAR individual category. This year’s participating beneficiaries for Run For A Reason are Standard Chartered Foundation (SCF), Hospis Malaysia, Yayasan Sejahtera and IJN Foundation.
