Bukit Jalil Marathon 2015

A Marathon at Bukit Jalil?

Was waiting for when the Brooks Half Marathon would pop up. Then suddenly there's the Bukit Jalil Marathon 2015. This event is also organised by the Taman Bukit Jalil Running Club. I see that Brooks is the main sponsor, but not the title sponsor. That said, why do they call it Marathon instead of Half Marathon. Well what do I know of such things? In towns in Sarawak we have many 'marathons' too and these can range from 5km runs to 21km runs. Of course now the public in Kuching have been educated to what a marathon actually is by the inaugural Kuching Marathon. This event will be held at the National Stadium, Bukit Jalil, on 8th March 2015 at 5am. Registration is now available here. From all the information I have garnered this is essentially the same Brooks Half Marathon, except that the event has been 'upgraded' to marathon status to become the Bukit Jalil Marathon 2015. Strangely also the 5km category is closed and is only for sponsor and associate. Oh well am sure when their Facebook page opens we can learn more. Unfortunately I cannot see the wording on the running vest or the finisher t-shirt clearly. All in due time I guess.
