Waterview Thai Cuisine got crowded by 4.30am as 800 eager participants signed up for The River Jungle Marathon 2015, coordinated by The Marathon Shop Sdn Bhd, to get people to appreciate the beauty of Malaysian agriculture while on the move.
The River Jungle Marathon is a single-category event that takes participants on a 42km run, without a time limit. It has been routed to take participants on a full only-road run around a mix of Malaysia’s beautiful landscapes like the valleys, rivers, dams, and mountains.
As this event is more of a run than a race, participants took part without prizes awaiting them at the finish line. Rather, they received finisher t-shirts and medals upon completion, along with goodie bags, race kits and finisher certificates, among others.
This event was also sponsored by 2XU, Hammer Nutrition, Revive, Garmin, Ixora Pewter, Second Skin, and RockTape. Look out for next year’s River Jungle Marathon and take part.
