General Information

Volunteers are the backbone of any large sporting event, and particularly so for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon as we will have to manage more than 35,000 runners leading up to Race Day!

With over 75 nationalities participating in the event, SCKLM offers volunteers a fantastic opportunity to meet runners from around the world while ensuring that these runners experience the best of what Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia has to offer.

The premier running event in the country would not be possible without the help of committed volunteers who help with a variety of jobs and duties. Your contribution is much appreciated.


Some of the key areas where volunteer help is required include:



  • Race Entry Pack assembly
  • Race Entry Pack distribution



  • Route
    • Fruits, drinks and energy gels distribution
    • Route marshals
  • Start & Finish Area
    • Information booth
    • Usherers around Dataran Merdeka
    • Crowd control at the finish line
    • Check out area runners
    • Baggage deposit/ retrieval counter
