KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 — The Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) this year scheduled for April 8, aims to attract up to 35,000 participants.

The SCKLM will mark its 10th edition this year and return to its spiritual home, Dataran Merdeka.

Its project director, Rainer Biemans said they were very fortunate to have been able to cultivate a loyal following of runners over the years, with the number of participants who had signed up for all 10 races thus far.

“We will be regularly engaging with them over our social media channels to give out a lot of goodies,” he told reporters here today.

Meanwhile, Standard Chartered Bank is proud to once again be the title sponsor of the SCKLM and in the 10th year of its association with this marathon.
