It's time to start stretching your legs and loading up the carbs in preparation for the upcoming Seremban Half Marathon on Sunday, September 10th.
This years marathon will mark the 30th year of the popular event that saw 4000 participants take part in 1987, and offered up a Lucky prize of a single-story terrace house, won by the very, very, lucky Encik Said Harun.
Over the years the popularity of the marathon, including the introduced Fun Run event and other innovations, has skyrocketed and the community groups and schools have embraced it to the extent that even the YAM Tunku Naquiyuddin sportingly accepted a challenge to participate in the Half Marathon, completing it in 2hrs and 23 minutes (well within the qualifying time) and in the process raised RM21K to kick-start the Negeri Sembilan Junior Athletes Trust Fund.
Be part of the history of this wonderful event by participating this Sunday, it's fun and rewarding to walk or run with friends and complete the slightly arduous task.
If you cannot walk or run then head down to town and cheer on your friends, the event starts at 6am.
