If running is your thing, then get ready to run the Malaysia Marathon, the most exciting running event of the year that's slated to take place on the 1st of October 2017 at the iconic Dataran Merdeka! The Malaysia Marathon, is a joining of hands in friendship between Malaysian and Chinese athletes through sports in line with the Belt and Road initiative, which promotes globalization.

To kick off this joint venture, the Belt and Road Marathon Series 2017, the Malaysia Marathon will see its launch this October in the hope that the event will catch on in other parts of the world. The event was proposed in China last year and will be held in Malaysia this year. 

The Malaysia Marathon 2017 will offer four various running categories to choose from which are the Full Marathon, the Half Marathon, a Quarter Marathon (10km) run and a 5km fun run. This highly anticipated running event is expected to attract a large number of running enthusiast and with only 20,000 slots being offered for all four categories!

The Malaysia Marathon is organized by Wisdom Sports Malaysia and is supported by MOTAC and DBKL and technically assisted by the highly professional and trusted race operators, 21st Century Sports (M) Sdn Bhd. Stay tuned for its official launch and opening of registration soon. Be sure to sign up to enjoy a run around the streets of the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur.

UPDATE (6th September 2017): Please note that The Malaysia Marathon 2017 has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, a reason that's been used once too often lately. The organizers, WISDOM SPORTS (M) SDN BHD should be more transparent in why they cancel a race instead of hiding behind the 'Unforeseen Circumstances' excuse!
