Bentong Half Marathon 2018 – Preview by Happy Runner


Editor’s Note

Last year, I missed the inaugural Bentong Half Marathon. So, this time, I’m glad to join this half marathon in the lush green environment of Bentong, Pahang which is organised by Majlis Perbandaran Bentong. 

”We want to highlight the beautiful natural scenery of Bentong which offer many great holiday retreats such as Janda Baik & Bukit Tinggi, and this peaceful haven is closer to Kuala than what many people may think,” shared Race Director Azril.

“Last year, there were 1,000 runners, and they really enjoyed the run, especially the Lemang Toki & Rendang snack which await the finishers,” added Azril.

For the 21km runners, there will be the added attraction of the Chamang Waterfall at the halfway point (10.5km).

It seems that this race not only attracts local runners, but there were international runners representing Great Britain, Portugal, Taiwan & Thailand too.
