If you are running the coming Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) 2014, here’s a special plan for you. MSIG Insurance, the Gold Sponsor of SCKLM are offering participants a one-day Personal Accident insurance coverage on Race Day which falls on October 12. It is available to runners who have registered for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon event.
