THE haze that enveloped the city two weeks ago made runners anxious as to whether the Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon 2019 would take place. But the sky cleared and rain fell the night before the race.

SCKLM, the country’s main running event took place as scheduled last Sunday, with some 40,000 runners taking part in this year’s edition.

The full marathon category was flagged off at 3.45am with 13,000 runners, followed by the half marathon category at 5.30am and the 10km Speed at 6.45am. Races for other distances were held on Saturday.

The event, however, was unfortunately marred by an accident — a car ploughed through safety barriers, injuring several runners.
