Quote of the Day

Running is just you, the work you put in, and the clock. You can't cheat yourself. If you don't put in the miles, you can't go to the starting line thinking you're going to pull a miracle out of nowhere. You get out exactly as much as you put in.

Already setup my new year's resolutions. Some of them are personal, about family and my running. Yep, I set new excitement in my running for 2012. Like it did in my first marathon, this time i set more distance, more challenging and more adventurous.

Report: Newton Challenge 2012

By Aiman Cheah

New Year Newton Challenge 1.1.2012

Venue: Jalan BK5A/2, Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, Selangor
Date: 1 January 2012 | 5.30am
Category: Men Veteran (40 and above)
Distance : 25km
Position: 80
Time: 2:27:29
Organizer: TriSportz

I got up at 4.00 a.m. That was the second alarm. The first alarm was 10 minutes earlier. I did not feel too fresh for the race although I did sleep earlier. I planned to start from home at 4.30a.m. but only started driving to the venue at a quarter to five. Light traffic enabled me to reach the venue at 5.08a.m. There was no hurry and by a quarter past five, I had already deposited my bag at the luggage counter.

I am glad to be greeted by our Penang counterparts. Sorry Mr Lim as I could not really remember you. We met at Penang 12 Hours Walk recently. Of course the second time I saw him I could recognize him immediately. That was when I overtook him after the 6th water station. The one who is most familiar to me is Mr Liew Tho Fatt.

I started slowly and I didn't think it was that slow. I could not recall the timing as my watch experienced short-circuit!

I hope the people at the water station were not annoyed at me. May be a strange request for unchilled water. Luckily, they were not too busy to enable them to entertain my request. I think I lost 15-30secs at each of the 7 water stations. A great job by the volunteers for accommodating my request.

The slow race enabled me to run all the way to the finish line. A good start to the new year.

I am glad that Mr Lee C.F. had closed the gap with me. I only caught up with him just before the last water station. He agreed that a slower start helped him to finish stronger. I overtook Mr C.C. Choi (PM42) after the last water station. He complimented me after the race that I finished the race strongly. Actually he was just as strong for he was just 4 seconds behind me.

About 50m from the finishing line. Picture courtesy of Mr Tey Eng Tiong

I consider this as a very good race with the preparation that I had.

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015

An official agreement between Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Berhad and Dirigo Events Sdn Bhd recently ensured the KL Marathon remains on the landscape and plans are already being laid for a participation of 27,000 runners at next year's edition.

Representing Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia as the marathon's title sponsor was its managing director and CEO Osman Morad. The event's co-organiser is Rainer Biemans, director of Dirigo Events.

The next Standard Chartered KL Marathon will be held on June 24 with participation expected from more than 45 countries.

The prize package will remain the highest among marathons in Malaysia, with a total prize money of US$100,000 (RM320,000).

"The elements of a marathon is a clear representation of the bank's brand philosophy - going the distance, persevering for excellence, a positive 'can-do' attitude, creativity and passion," said Osman.

"Year on year, we at Standard Chartered are encouraged by the enthusiasm as well as the determination and commitment all Malaysian and international runners show during the marathon.

"Just like a marathon, we are committed to the country for the long run and we are proud to be part of Malaysia's largest sporting event."

Biemans added: "We're overjoyed to be organising the next four Standard Chartered KL Marathons which continues to show exceptional progress each year.

"The success of the marathon is also a testament of our solid partnership with Standard Chartered Bank as an active and involved title sponsor, and we believe the marathon will continuously grow over the coming years to be one of the largest running events in Asia," he added.

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon also aims to encourage Malaysians to view sports as a way forward towards unity and national development, which is in line with the vision of the Sports Ministry.

Additionally, the marathon brings together runners and spectators from various countries, making it a major tourist attraction for the country.

Next year's marathon will continue to be a key calendar highlight as organisers continue to secure all aspects of the marathon to make it a positive and exciting running experience for participants.

With the introduction of more training programmes, additional incentives, new apparel designs as well as charity partners, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon will definitely be an event not to be missed.
