After months of hearsays, it is now confirmed that adidas will be the official apparel partner for Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015. The announcement was made in the email blast to the SCKLM email subscribers last night.
Warm greetings from all of us at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon!
We are proud to announce that the Marathon is back again this year and is scheduled for 04.10.15 at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur – so save the date!
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015 is made possible by Title Sponsor, Standard Chartered Bank as well as our Gold Sponsors, MSIG Insurance and Honda Malaysia. We are also supported by our official partners, Seiko, Pacific Regency Hotel Group, 100 Plus and we are proud to announce our apparel partner for 2015, Adidas.
Every year, the Standard Chartered KL Marathon is taking a step forward to become a true community event and helping the less fortunate through our Run For A Cause (RFAC) programme. If you are interested in raising funds for one of our official charity partners, you can do so by participating in the RFAC individual category. The registration mechanism has been tweaked and for more information on RFAC and how to be a Run For A Cause runner, please click here. RFAC registrations will be open earlier so follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the announcement.
Normal registrations for all categories will commence on 18 May 2015, after noon, so stay tuned for latest updates through our website and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Runwitme Says: We took out our crystal ball and predict these three things when adidas is announced as the official apparel partner with Standard Chartered KL Marathon.
1) Based on what happened in Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2014 where adidas was also the official apparel partner, we reckon adidas will be offering some exclusive event specific merchandise and discounts for the runners apart from the usual event vests.
2) Adidas sponsored marathoners will be making appearance in SCKLM. Singapore Marathon had Haile Gebrselassie last year. Who do you like to see at SCKLM 2015?
3) This also marked the end of adidas King of the Road race that was very popular among the ASEAN regions a couple of years ago. We think adidas will be focusing on the marathon rather than organising their own race. So, bye bye to King of the Road. It has been great! *sob!*
