Pahang International Marathon attracts more than 3,000 runners - March 12, 2017
 
KUANTAN: More than 3,000 runners from all around the world lined up at Taman Gelora here to take part in the 2017 Pahang International Marathon this morning. State Tourism and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin said it has achieved the participation target set in conjunction with Visit Pahang Year 2017. "The large number of runners taking part this time is a very encouraging sign. We believe it was the result of promotions held (for Visit Pahang Year 2017) since last year. "For this fifth edition, we introduced a new category of 42 kilometres (km), while maintaining previous categories of 21km, 10km, and 5km. "We have participants coming from countries like China, Kenya, Indonesia and Singapore," he said after the prize-giving ceremony this morning.
 
Sharkar said runners had to go through 13 routes from Taman Gelora to Jalan Dato Abdullah, Jalan Gambang and Jalan Sungai Lembing and other stretches in the city. He said apart from the marathon, other sporting events were also planned in all districts throughout the year in conjunction with Visit Pahang Year. "The marathon event is not just to attract tourists to this state but also to raise public awareness on the need to practice healthy lifestyle." he said.
