KL Marathon 2013: Postponed

Taken from the Standard Chartered KL Marathon facebook:

Dear runners,

It is with much regret to announce that the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2013 has been postponed till 29 September 2013. This postponement is unavoidable as the haze situation, while getting better still poses a health risk.

An official statement will be released to the media tomorrow.

I’d hate to be in the position of the organizer right now but there isn’t much choice with the haze. Not to forget the international runners; gosh! I was in Bali Marathon on 16 June and I can’t imagine having an event canceled when you’ve already traveled so far to get to the starting line.

So I guess 29 September is the date to look forward then. Stay safe folks; wear those masks and drink tons of H2O!

Keep calm and share!
