Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018 Route Preview

Earlier this month, me & Hubby were invited to join the media tour for Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) 2018 along with race officials and representatives (read: orang kuat) of Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Berhad.

We were taken on tour to view the full marathon (42K) route that full marathon runners will run on Sunday morning on Apr 8th, 2018. But luckily, we didn't need to put on our running shoes this time, because we boarded the Hop-On Hop-Off bus! The bus trip came complete with THREE police outriders. So VVIP!

The route preview was great and there are some changes in the full marathon route compared to last year's and in my opinion, this year's route is more interesting. We are spared AKLEH but we will have plenty of fun from KM32 onwards. Hahaha

We were also being guided along the way with tidbits of information and tips by Coach Mark Williams.

Thank you to SCKLM for the invitation and see you all on Apr 8, 2018!

Videos taken along the route can be viewed from our Cik Arnab & En Kura-Kura page. There are 23 short clips ranging from 30 secs to 2 mins available to show sections of the 42K route. Do visit our page and like us!


  1. Wow!! Really shiok to ride above this Hop On Hop Off buses! I only took this in Hong Kong. You guys are already in their VIP list to grace their yearly events. Your pink tee shirt really stood out like a flower!! Nice!

    1. You should watch the videos and see how VVIP the outriders treat us.

      I bet some Malaysians drivers that morning got annoyed and wonder what VIP go naik bus that day! LOL

  2. I have seen that bus when I go to KL. Must be nice sitting up there with the wind blowing in your hair!
