Route:
The Route will traverse the the city of Shah Alam. This is the capital of the state of Selangor in Malaysia and is located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

The Route will take you through a majestic Blue Mosque, the Sultan of Selangor palace, 2 grand stadiums, 2 beautiful lakes, an old museum and the beautiful shell shaped Royal Theater of Selangor. Not to miss on challenges, there are lots of inclines but who says women cannot live up to challenges. The route will be measured and sanctioned by a sanctioning body in Malaysia.

Special Feature of the Marathon:
We will have Katherine Switzer to flag off the event. She will be here to give inspirational talks and meet all the participants. We have a 2 days pre event program that will encompass from a women dialogue session of women in running where we have in the session, numerous women race directors who have organised runs of their own (some for which are ultras); to an award giving ceremony for a woman runner who has through her running injected some sense of empowerment and inspirational feature for other women to follow; and of course we are planning a fashion parade. Many more programs. Stay tuned.
