Another marathon post to add to the list, haha ! Well this is the first time i join in the SP Half Marathon run but this is not the first time this marathon is held in Sungai Petani, Kedah. What i heard from friends who already join the run since the first time it was held, they said that the organizer of this marathon is improving the event year by year and also the number of participants seems to be increasing yearly, that seems to be a good thing though. It may no be as grand as some of those i participated previously but it is consider very good for the number of participants that turn up and the way the marathon was handled.

There are total of 12 categories to choose from but i choose the 21km run. During the run i have the chance to pass-by some of the village area with paddy field along our running route which is really awesome and its nice to be able to experience running at a place with green scenery. Thumbs up !

Everyone who register for the marathon will be given a T-Shirt and those who are able to finish the run will be given a goodies bag and a finisher medal.

The marathon start and end at the very iconic landmark for people in Sungai Petani which is the Sungai Petani Clock Tower.

Total Distance Covered

Running Route Covered

One thing bad about the marathon is there are only a few point where the road are closed while the others are still open for traffic which i think is kinda dangerous. They do have the Traffic Police and Rela to control the traffic and also to ensure the safety of all participants so if you are not afraid of the flowing traffic right beside you when you run, then it should be good but i am not a fan of that, haha !
