We, runners, know that in order to succeed in running, we have to put in long hours of hard work. But, we also know that certain things that are beyond our control can have direct impact in our pursuit of running success, such as unpredictable weather, unforeseen injury, day-job workload and social commitments.
What can we do to make our goals come true? We keep pushing ourselves to train. We keep believing in our goals. And we make a wish.
11:11 on 11-11
Some people believe that 1111 is a spiritual number. It is often said that, if you make a wish when you see the number 1111, the chance of it being fulfilled increases tremendously. Whether you believe this or not, why not give it a try?
And, what better time to make a wish than at 11:11, on 11 November? Considering that the chance to make a wish at 11:11 on 11-11 only comes twice a year – they are 11:11 a.m. and 11:11 p.m. on 11 November – you don’t want to miss either one or both of them at all.
The next question is, how not to miss 11:11 on 11 November? Join Educity Sundown Marathon Iskandar 2017, which will be held in the evening of 11 November 2017.

The third edition of Educity Sundown Marathon returns to Iskandar on 11 November 2017 at Educity university campus’ stadium ground. Embrace the spirit of sundown marathon by racing through the night and aiming to finish the race before the sun rises.

Make a wish no matter your category
If you take part in 5km category or 10km category which are flagged off at 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., you’ll be enjoying runner’s high after your race; and by the time the clock hits 11:11 p.m., you will make a wish that’ll be deeply engraved in your soul, there’s no way it will not become a reality.
On the other hand, if you participate in 21.1km Half Marathon or 42.195km Full Marathon which are flagged off at 10:30 and 10:00 p.m., you’ll be running and constantly looking at your watch anticipating the moment the watch hits 11:11 p.m. When it does, make your most ambitious marathon wish ever. Your thought will be so laser-focused as you’re making the wish while running, the universe will conspire to make it happen.
