Kuala Lumpur, 31 March 2013 – Celebrating its 5th year, Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Bhd, the title sponsor of Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) held a “Last Dash to Run” contest yesterday for the public to win 100 registration slots in the upcoming SCKLM 2013.
Participants clad in blue and green gathered early for the flag-off at Jalan P.Ramlee. The first 100 runners to arrive at the finish line at the Standard Chartered KL Park won a coveted spot to participate in SCKLM2013.
The contest was organised to allow more runners’ to participate in the Marathon on 30 June 2013, through Standard Chartered’s own allocation of registration slots. Due to overwhelming response, SCKLM public registration closed at 33,000 within six (6) weeks, taking many by surprise and leaving ardent runners without a slot to run in the Marathon.
Standard Chartered said, “This is just one way in which we can help more runners participate in the Marathon.”
The event was joined by EPL Legends, Dietmar Hamann and Dennis Wise, who don their running shoes to encourage the runners. The Legends were in town to launch the Standard Chartered EPL 2013, a local football tournament between EPL Legends and Malaysian All-Stars team, coming up in April.
