Marathon Tips from Coach Mark Williams from SCKLM Running Clinic

What? Running Clinic for Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010.

Where? Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur.

When? 06 June 2010, 8:00am

Who? Speakers - Coach Mark Williams, Elite Runner Shahruddin Hashim and Dr. Tajuddin.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa and SCKLM conducted their last running clinic before the race day there!

I guestimated around 200 or more runners turned up for the event.

National Elite Runner Shahruddin Hashim being interviewed by Rainer Biemans, the Operation Director of SCKLM.

Coach Mark Williams. A familiar face in the local road races. He emerged the winner of the 42km race in last week's Sundown Marathon, Singapore in 3:04:21.

It's three weeks to you race day...What are you supposed to be doing now?

Dr. Tajuddin giving out some medical advices.

Q&A session.

The daredevil photographer caught in action again. You first seen his "stunt" HERE.

The group pic. I purposely choose this angle so that I could get KLCC in the back ground. It is the KL Marathon after all. Heheh!

Free bananas, water and iso drink for the participants.

Run with the coach around the lake. I think the participants were more eager to talk to the coach than run with him. Folks! That's the only time you could run with him...LOL!

On the race day, you have to do a 3:00 hours marathon in order to keep up. Heheh!

FYI, Mark is also a pacer for SCKLM 2010. Follow Mark Williams HERE on the race day.

Some signed up on the spot for KL Marathon during the clinic.

Meet and learn from one of the fastest long distance runner in the country.

I liked Mark's advice and he comes across as a good guy. I was a fan of his when he ran in Hong Kong, and won loads. His presentation is good (teaching eh!) and full of the solid basics. Top stuff.
