asked here about the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2013 and whether it is going to happen with its 33,500 participants in view of the haze?
Here is the answer for you, Jay:
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2013 which was scheduled for Sunday (June 30), has been postponed to Sept 29 in the interest of public health, due to the haze situation.
The decision was made after discussions between the organiser, Dirigo Events Sdn Bhd, partners of the event and local authorities, including Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Department of Environment (DOE) and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
