Penang Bridge International Marathon
Ladies, gentlemen and distinguished guests,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you this evening for joining us for the launching of the Penang Bridge International Marathon 2018.
The event, which is happening this November 25 at the Queensbay Mall car park, is one of the most anticipated marathon in the country which will bring countless local and international marathon enthusiasts to Penang with the aim of beating their best time.
Although we no longer host the Fun Run category this year, we are proud to announce that we have attracted more than 27,000 registrations for PBIM this year who have registered under three categories namely Full Marathon (42km), Half Marathon (21km) and 10km run.
The marathon has never failed to bring in a high number of sportsmen from diverse background who are here united by their common love for the sport. The event is a positive force to encourage healthy sportsmanship among people regardless of race or nationality, especially in Penang as we work towards enhancing the quality of life.
It is our intention to emphasise on delivering quality, instead of quantity in order to ensure a more competitive environment for the runners. This is in line with our effort to rebrand PBIM as an international marathon.
We also have a total of RM259,200 attractive cash prizes which will given away to the top 10 winners of each category.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors including Brooks, who has stepped forward as the official apparel for runners this year. We also extend our sincere appreciation to SEIKO the official timer, EMICO the official medal sponsor, 100 PLUS the official isotonic drink, Asia Green the venue sponsor and other notable sponsors.
Your contributions have contributed to the success of the PBIM. To our runners, I wish you well in your upcoming preparations.
