Official Apparel Sponsor Brooks returns to the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018 (SCKLM2018) for the event’s 10th Anniversary, providing more than 38,000 registered runners with Running Tees and outfitting SCKLM2018 Official Pacers with a complete set of running gears.
18 out of a total of 29 Official Standard Chartered KL Marathon (SCKLM) 2018 Pacers were present to receive their Pacer kits at a handover ceremony at the flagship Brooks outlet at MyTown in Cheras.
The kits comprise of exclusively designed Brooks singlets with Equilibrium Technology, along with a pair of running shorts and shoes. For the first time, there will be 6 Pacers for the Half Marathon category apart from the 23 Pacers assisting runners in the Full Marathon category.
Pacing is a crucial element if you want to complete a marathon in your expected time and Pacers play an important role in helping to ensure runners to keep to the required pace, especially for new runners.
Gloria Ng, Director of Dirigo Events, the owner and organiser of the race said,
We have been fortunate that our Pacers are usually returning ones. They are all exemplary runners who have a great attitude to running and sacrifice their own race to assist others in reaching their timing goals. We started our Pacing programme for SCKLM2010 and we have Pacers who have been with us since then, so we are very grateful for their continued support.
Malcalm Chew and Kelvin Ng are two such runners who have been Pacers for SCKLM since 2010.
From the first time I became a Pacer for SCKLM, I received encouraging feedback from my friends and social media followers. SCKLM was also one of the better organised running events and kept getting bigger and better so it has been an easy decision to come back every year, except for 2014 when I decided to be a runner instead,
Kelvin, on the other hand, has never missed SCKLM since its inception and is now part of an exclusive group of runners called the SCKLM Juggernauts, those who’ve participated in every SCKLM since 2009. SCKLM’s 10th Anniversary this year has special significance for him as it will also be his 10th.
This is a special year for SCKLM as it celebrates its 10th Anniversary so we’re very happy to partner yet again with the Standard Chartered KL Marathon, the premier running event in the country,
said Victor Tiew, Brand Manager, Paragon Vest (Brooks).
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2018 (SCKLM2018) takes place on 8 April 2018.
