Alor Setar Half Marathon was held on 9 March 2019. This is my first Half Marathon event at the northern part of peninsular of Malaysia. Hence, I was very eksaitedddddddddd.
Coincidentally, Alor Setar was reported as one of the hottest city in Malaysia in March and it was really hot and dry at that time.
The race pack collection was held at Aman Central and it went smoothly and the queue was well managed.
I was very excited about the route of 21 km as it went through the centre of Alor Setar and paddy field.
The numbers of runners were reasonable, not too many, and as expected, there was so hot with no wind. I have to endure it for entire run.
The route for Half Marathon started at Aman Central, passing through Stadium Darul Aman, Masjid Zahir, Rumah Kelahiran Tun Dr. Mahathir, paddy fields and run besides PLUS Highway.
To my surprise, the route was totally flat with only one bridge at the end of the run. Hence, I managed to produce my personal best.
I will definitely join this event again in the future. The event was well organized and the route was much interesting.
