Alternative routes to city centre
Vehicles travelling from Kajang to the city centre may use Jalan Loke Yew, Jalan Kuching and Jalan Sultan Ismail. Vehicles from Seremban Highway may opt to travel through Jalan Tun Razak, Sungai Besi roundabout and Jalan Sultan Ismail. Vehicles from Setapak may access the city centre via Jalan Tun Razak. Vehicles from Kepong will have an option to use Jalan Kuching and Jalan Sultan Ismail as alternative routes.

300 traffic policemen and 100 Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) officers from enforcement department will be deployed to control the traffic. The road closure details are also available in the Standard Chartered KL Marathon’s official website, www.kl-marathon.com .

Public transportation – available option
Dirigo Events with the collaboration of DBKL and Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad are pleased to announce that the MyRapid LRT trains will be operational for Standard Chartered KL Marathon Runners.

In anticipation of the large number of participants who would be flagged off from 4.30am at Dataran Merdeka, the LRT services would begin at 3.00am that day for participants, volunteers, and supporters to travel by train to the Masjid Jamek station, which is the nearest point to the race venue.

Two major lines, namely the Ampang line and the Kelana Jaya line will be operational from 3.00am and trains will run at every 15-minute interval. All LRT stations along these two lines will be open from 2.45am to allow time for passengers to purchase their tokens. The organisers recommend that all runners use the MyRapid cards to avoid long queues and facilitate easier access to the public transportation services. Please locate the station closest to your area and plan your journey ahead of time. To keep updated, please check www.kl- marathon.com regularly.

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon is once again made possible by title sponsor Standard Chartered Bank, in partnership with the event owner and organiser, Dirigo Events Sdn Bhd, and co-organiser, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) with strong support from the Ministry of Youth and Sports; and gold sponsors MSIG and Honda.
