Race Report – Standard Chartered KL Marathon 10km 26 June 2011

The 10km race held during the Standard Chartered KL Marathon held on 26 June 2011 is my 7th race for 2011 (actually my 7th race ever). The Standard Chartered KL Marathon in the premier event in the running calender for Malaysia. And it did not disappoint.

Flag Off

Arrived there at about 6:45AM and made it just in time for the flag off (barely). I hade underestimated the traffic and parking and was relying purely on luck. We arrived at the venue much much earlier but couldn’t find any parking spots and the police had erected road blocks all over the place. Luck was really on our side as we found a nice parking space near Bank Negara. After parking the car we rushed to the start line for the 10km run (near the National Monument) and got there literally when the gun went off for the 10km run. Nothing to worry about through as there were thousands and thousands of people waiting to run at the starting line. Even when the gun went off I was still not moving. The slow shuffling itself took me about 10 minutes before I could start running.

When I did start running I was already quite warmed up and I settled into an easy pace. My strategy was to run easy for the first 5km and then pick up the pace for the final 5.

My fourth race of the 2011 season (I never thought of my years in terms of seasons before)- The Larian Bomba 2011 10km run held in celebration of the World’s Firefighter’s Day.

This particular race was full of drama for me and I learnt a lot about myself today.

Race – Larian Bomba 2011 10km


I registered for the Larian Bomba 2011 10km run which is heldon 8 May 2011 in conjunction with the International Firefighters Day.

This will be 4th running event for the year (actually for my entire life so far) and at 10km will be the longest. Cut off time for this 10km is 90 minutes. It’s a bit daunting for me as I can manage 100 minutes for the 10km (last night’s 10km was 100 mins).

The route is roughly the same as the FT Day 2011 7km run and the World Kidney Run 2011 5km. I surveyed the route this morning and found it to be quite nice.
