Newsletter – June 2009

Dear Runner,
We are pleased to announce that, thanks to your overwhelming support, registration for Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2009 has closed two weeks ahead of its stipulated deadline of 15 June! All 12,500 slots have been taken up and the organizers promise to deliver a great running experience for all.

Run For a Cause
Here’s good news for registered participants of Run For a Cause who have yet to collect the minimum RM500 needed to confirm yourself as a charity runner. The deadline has been extended to 15 June. Please take note if you still do not have the required minimum amount of RM500, you will not be able to run because registration is closed and the money raised to date will be donated to your chosen charity.

Race Pack Collection
Please take note that the Race Pack Collection will be held on:

Date: Friday, 26 June and Saturday, 27 June 2009
Time: 26 June from 12pm to 8pm, 27 June from 10am to 5pm
Venue: Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur

To collect your Race Pack, you will need to bring along your registration confirmation slip together with your NRIC/Passport. If you are unable to collect your Race Pack on your own, a representative may collect on your behalf provided they bring along your authorization, photocopy of your NRIC/Passport and registration confirmation slip. Each person can collect up to a maximum of six (6) Race Packs, including his own, if he is a registered runner. You can download the authorization letter here. If you did not receive your registration confirmation slip, please click here, and key in your IC/Passport and your date of birth to print out a copy.

Running Clinic
The last in our series of Running Clinics is set to take place on 14 June at Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur. The topic, Countdown to Race Day, will take runners through their final preparation and training schedules as a lead up to Race Day. The clinic will be conducted by elite runners Mark Williams, Shaharudin Hashim and Yuan Yu Fang, Ultraman Kannan Murugasan, Coach Azizollah Mierzai and Lim Ai Leng, a dietitian from Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre. Read more here.

The inaugural Standard Chartered KL Marathon to be held on June 28 will rely on volunteers for a variety of jobs, before and during the race day. Some of the key areas where volunteer help is required include: Race Pack distribution, Fruit and drinks distribution, Course Marshals, Crowd Control at Finish (to ensure smooth flow of runners at finish line), Media Tent, Luggage collection and return. The Volunteer briefing will be held on June 21 at Sukan Negara – the volunteers will receive a separate e-mail on this topic.
