SCKLM 2019 is 8 months away, but the first wave of registration starts on 15 January 2019. A record gap of 17 months would pass between SCKLM 2018 & the next SCKLM 2019, and for SCKLM Fans, it will feel like an eternity.

I heard that AKLEH portion will be removed from the previous 42km & 21km routes, but the DUKE portion of 42km route will remain same as last year. At least for the Full & Half Marathoners their routes will change partially, but we won’t know the exact route until its official announcement much later.

What else will change? The new event apparel sponsor is Under Armour & 100 Plus makes a comeback as the beverage sponsor.

You can expect the running slots to be oversubscribed as usual, and there will be many runners who will suffer anxiety attacks from tomorrow onwards when online registration opens for SCKLM 2018 Runners first, and the runner’s level of anxiety will peak from 13th February 2019, until all the remaining slots are eventually sold off. If I can recall, the FM & HM running slots were taken-up in matters of days. So, be prepared to register quickly on the opening dates provided, if you want to stand any chance of securing these hot tickets…good luck!


The Standard Chartered KL Marathon is back and will be held on Saturday, 28 September for 5km and Kids Dash, and Sunday 29 September 2019 for the Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km at Dataran Merdeka and the streets of Kuala Lumpur.
