​Pahang International Marathon 2017 (PIM 2017) – PREVIEW

​Pahang International Marathon 2017 (PIM 2017) – PREVIEW

Editor’s Note 

It’s always exciting when a NEW MARATHON is launched, and we are marking this special occasion by GIVING-AWAY 2 RACE BIBS (see below for details).

Pahang International Marathon 2017 has evolved out of Annual Kuantan Half Marathon (AKHM) which started in 2014 and usually attracts 2,000 Runners from all over Malaysia. 

The PIM 2017 Owner and Organiser, Monkey Theory (formerly known as Dusty Monkeys) will need to use all their accumulated organisational and technical skills and experience from AKHM to handle the massive undertaking of a Full Marathon. Needless to say, FM Runners need much support from the organiser to successfully complete 42.195 kilometres. Any unexpected slip-ups, omissions and delays along the route could be disastrous for all parties involved. So, it’s important that we all do our part to make this inaugural PIM 2017 a Big Hit.

Will you be one of the group of pioneer runners who will be blazing the brand new Full Marathon route around Kuantan on 12th March 2017?
