The health and safety of all our runners remains our top priority. Since our last announcement, the haze has unfortunately reached unhealthy levels according to the latest monitored alert. Due to the rapidly deteriorating air quality and on the advice from the medical team, the Malaysian Athletics Federation (MAF), and Institut Sukan Negara, we regret to announce that the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2015 will be cancelled.

This decision is further supported by co-organisers, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, as well as title sponsor, Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia.

We appreciate the support shown by our runners throughout this challenging weather situation. Registered participants are advised to directly proceed to Dataran Merdeka to collect their finisher entitlements from 6.00 am until 12.00 noon, on Sunday, 4 October 2015. Please present your bib for collection of finisher entitlements.

For those who are unable to collect their entitlements during this time, alternative arrangements will be announced through the Standard Chartered KL Marathon social media channels.

As a result of the cancellation, a route infrastructure will remain in place on 4 October 2015, from 6.00 am until 9.00 am.
