One of the most talked about runs of the year, the KoTR 2013 saw 11,000 runners pound the pavement with passion and determination to complete the 15th edition of the Adidas Malaysia KoTR!

Held along the NPE Highway due to popular demand from the participants in its third year running, the run had a unique elevated route across three key districts Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur, and also played host as the final leg of the adidas King Of The Road South East Asia.

Also making a debut in Malaysia this year was the special junior category with a distance of 10 km for youths between the ages of 15 – 17 years old.

Entertainment spots were set up along the route to help boost the energy of the runners with percussions playing strong rhythm and beats.

Runners were also running to the cheers and encouragement of cheerleaders making this a new experience for participants this time around.
