The SCORE MARATHON 2019 and countdown…

Driven by their unyielding mission to inspire a healthier lifestyle for all, SCORE returns to shake up the local running event with their annual landscape with their annual signature running event. Now that the event is half-a-decade old, Malaysia’s biggest one-stop sports and fitness event organiser is taking off its training wheels and debuting their first ever full-length marathon!  This year’s theme is none than “conquer together”, a nod to the runners who’ve grown together alongside the event since its inception. I am very honoured and truly blessed to have been part of this prestige event since it was first held.

So what to do you do, a few days before the big race???

The last few days before your big running race, and your fate is sealed.

The day before a race may be a stressful time for some runners—especially those participating in their first long distance event. The pre-race advice that runners should follow: Don’t dramatically change your regular routine the day before the race. Runners should maintain their daily routine the day immediately before the race, considering only a few modifications.

Here are 10 useful tips why you should arrive early to race venue and you should start with the SCORE MARATHON this weekend.

Reasons why its considered a good practice to arrive early to race venues:

1. To have a good warmup ahead of flag off


2.Easier to find parking spaces


3.Porta -porti time…..To have ample time to avoid toilet queues to clear your bowel


4.Wishing fellow runners good morning will make you and others feel good.

5.Plenty of time to catch a quick nap(wink) if needed.

6.Collect race kit(where necessary)

7.Have a pre-tour of exhibition booths, event backdrop, trophies so that you know what to expect after your run finishes

8.You generally will feel more relaxed if arrive early.

9.Take a few group selfies(if you wish to)

10.And finally, for elite runners, a chance to view who are their fellow competitors in and around the starting line.

A big shout out to all sponsors and a very special thanks goes to Captain Lee for the tips, advise and guidance.  

All in all, the Feel Good Factor will be there if you arrive early for your event!
