The KL-Maran 204km Marathon is back and this will be my 5th year taking part in the event. You may be an Ironman, Marathoner or the Best Olympian but this walk goes beyond physical strength. It is not easy walking (or running if you wish) on the highway especially on Day One and subsequently the the never ending road. This marathon challenge your mental & spiritual strength as well as your inner self conscience.

Food (strictly vegetarian) is provided throughout. There are sufficient food, water & medicare with very dedicated and responsible organising team as well as volunteers.

I was told the organiser is planning to give some sort of a mementos to the participants this year. I am fortunate to receive a medal on my 1st year but no mementos was given out the subsequent year. In fact, most of us are not going after the souvenir but it will be great to have one as a token.

There were some lengthy & detailed reports by 2 of my running friends who joined me last year. You may read the report below :-





If you are interested and would like to know more or to join me & friends, drop me a line.

Thanks Jue, for the encouragement. It's not easy to teach and write a blog for the benefit for other aspiring artistes here at the same time. Your words really lift up my spirits!

KEEP ON RUNNING!
