SCKLM 2010, a well organized event. Drink stations are sufficient enough, water every 2km, isotonic drink every 4km, few sponge station along the route for full and half marathon, distance marker every km. Full and half marathon route not clash with 10km and fun run route, avoid congestion for all serious runners.

I was follow closely by a lady runner behind me since 5km onwards, good weather on the race day, and also pacing / pushing by Peter, I manage reached completed first 16km within 1:19++

My aim to completed another AIMS certified half marathon with sub 1:45 realised during this race, although not my PB compare with SCSM 2009, and also failed to achieved 1:40 target set by Dan Low.

Glad that I manage to completed my 30th half marathon in my entire running life with sub 1:45...

Race Report: Setia Eco 1/2 Marathon 2010

Location: Setia Alam Welcome Centre
Date/Time: 5th June 2010 @ 6:30 am
Category: Men's Open Half Marathon (21km)
Bib: A306
Distance: 20.94 km (by Garmin FR405)
Timing: 1'43:28
Average Pace: 4:56 min per km
Rank: 20th

Another run in rain half marathon. Saw overcast sky while I was ran about 5km, felt rain drop at about 10km, when reached to 12km, heavy rain for about 15min, enjoy the run under heavy rain.

Saw the first two elite leading runners ran back from opposite direction while I am at 7km mark, started counting runners infront of me, I was in 40th when reached the u-turn point at 8.5km, but can't see most regular elite runners in this race, maybe most of them still rest after last weekend Sundown or Hatyai Marathon.

Cold weather make me run with easy pace for first 12km, completed with sub 58 min. Keep on maintain average sub 5 min pace for the last 9km. When reached 20km, my timing was 1:39++. Turn on my turbo and pia for the last one km with 4:26 min pace, crossing finishing line with 1'43:28, but actual distance just 20.94km according to my Garmin FR405. Anyhow average 4:56 min per km pace still my PB pace for half marathon race at Malaysia, but not my overall PB.

The route
