Meet the Pacers for Standard Charted KL Marathon 2019

SCKLM marks its 11th year with 40,000 runners, an additional 2,000 runners as to compared to 2018. Not only that, this year there are 30 pacers, an additional pacer compared to 2018.

Pacers are important at races. They not only run at desired speed indicated on their markers (usually it is a balloon), but motivate the runners.  They have to train hard to run at a steady pace. It takes experiences and the right heart.

There are 24 experienced pacers allocated for full marathon this year for timing 3 hr 45 mins, 4 hr, and subsequent 30 mins until the cut off time. “Some of our Pacers have been with us from day one and are quite well known to the local running community so their popularity and more importantly their experience is a big advantage for us. We are very grateful for their selfless service over the years,” said Rainer Bieman, Project Director of SKCLM and Director of Dirigo Events.

There are 6 pacers for the half marathon as well for various timing. So runners, know your target time and follow your pacer. Don’t run too fast, too slow, just run within goals and finish without injuries. Most of all, train.

This year, Under Armour sponsors the outfits of  the pacers with newly designed UA HOVR performance running footwear and race kits.

I still have the picture of my pacers from my first Full Marathon back in 2015. Towards the last few kilometers, I followed Kelvin who kept the ladies motivated until the finish line. How can I forget my virgin marathon pacer.

Pacers go beyond running within designated speed. They keep runners motivated.

Me and my 1st FM pacer. Kelvin will be pacing 5hr 30min timing. You won’t forget your pacer for sure.

The Standard Charted KL Marathon takes place on the 28 & 29 September 2019. It is the premier running event in Malaysia with top runners competing for a total of RM500,000 in prize money.

What is the ‘Fall Collection 14’ all about?
We have put together simple yet bold designs to highlight performance and better visibility for night use.

  • Electrifying and Bold Colors
    TRON-ultra features bold lines in teal, light blue, red and orange color, while the NAHL-Riada design is inspired by the Bee. With simple curves and round edges, we offer the colors of the Bumblebee and Metallic Green Bee
    In this collection, the hijabs come in bold colors as the tops are mainly black or dark grey base with lines. They complement well with the Tron Ultra and Nahl Riada.

  • Super-light
    Our new collection is getting lighter especially the Riada range.
    The fabric for Tron Ultra is high ventilated, so it dries super fast; faster than the swimwear fabric
    Nahl Riada is only 166 gram, close to 100 gram lighter than previous Riada range products
    Iman Hijab is also made of super-lightweight fabric

  • Bold Lines
    The design for Tron Ultra is simple, added by bold lines that not only add the sportiness of the Top, but also gives slimming optical illusion when viewed from front or sides.

    If you look carefully, you could see a dainty flower motif on the left hand of Tron-ultra. The white lines although bold brings out the feminine in you. 🙂 The visual below is how the flower motif looks like, close up!
