This year will see a slight change to the name of the premier distance running event in Malaysia to highlight its tourism potential.
There will be 1,900 running tourists arriving to participate in the race this year, representing 73 countries from all over the world, which is our highest number yet. In light of this, the Kuala Lumpur Mayor has proposed that the name of the event be altered to give the city more prominence in order to encourage more running tourists and their entourages to the city.
Moving forward the event will be called the Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon (KLSCM) with #klscm2019 and #klscm as the new social media hashtags.
