Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon Goes Virtual Again in 2021

Lace up your running shoes, and head for the finish line. Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon (KLSCM) will go virtual for the second year running, between 20 – 28 November 2021. 

The premier virtual running event in Malaysia is organised by Dirigo Events, with Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia returning as Title Sponsor. The virtual run (VR) will offer free registration and will contest the Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km and 5km distance categories. More than 52,000 local and international runners participated in the 2020 edition. 

“We are keeping registrations free as we are sympathetic to the economic plight that Malaysians are facing during the extended lockdowns and we want to encourage as many people as possible to participate,” added Rainer Biemans, Director of Dirigo Events.

While no prizes or awards will be presented to the category winners similar to the first VR, a Grand Lucky Draw prize awaits a fortunate winner this year, consisting of an all-expenses paid trip for two to an international marathon event in Europe.
