Event: Allianz Penang Bridge International Marathon
Date: 20th November 2011
Venue: Queensbay Mall
The biggest and most anticipated sports event in Malaysia, the Penang Bridge International Marathon is back again this year! We are thrilled to announce that there will be a new addition to our Marathon family, our title sponsor, Allianz, hence renaming our marathon as Allianz Penang Bridge International Marathon. We are also very pleased to announce the other sponsors - Main Sponsor DIGI, Co –sponsor HUNZA and sponsor Star Cruise.
Just a little reminder- the closing date of the Normal Ticket Price is on 30 September, which is at the end of this month. After this date, the ticket price will be much higher. So please register as soon as you can to enjoy is good rate!
Last year we had 24,000 participants for all over Malaysia and also the world. So far 12,500 people have already registered for this year’s marathon and we are expecting a total number of 30,000 participants.
This Allianz Penang Bridge International Marathon is truly unique because this is the only time where Malaysia’s longest and busiest bridge, the beautiful Penang Bridge, is completely closed for traffic. Also, the run is conducted at night where the full marathon will be flagged off at 2.00 AM. This gives the opportunity for runners to fully enjoy the beautiful view on Penang Island, safely from the bridge.
This year there are 4 main categories: the full marathon, half marathon, 10 KM marathon and Fun Run. You may find more information on the registration and marathon categories from our website and hotline, available on our flyers. On top of that, we also have many exciting prizes for the runners. The grand prize for lucky draw this year is a Proton Saga and the second prize is a motorbike.
