I also registered for fm le. Which hotel to recommend ?

I stayed at the Chinatown Inn in the midst of Chinatown last year for the KLSCM. Clean, basic amenities there, wifi, good access to food. Walking distance to start point (if this yr's is the same as last year). The only downside of this hotel, is its on 2nd floor, hence theres a short stairway leading up to it. (think when you are checking out, post-marathon:))

Stunned like a vegetable... when SCM is struggling to fulfill the slots last year !!!

Not just SCMS, even Sundown is struggling badly to fill up their slots. Have to keep giving discounts and extending the final registration date but still cannot fill up the slots.

How's the fm route like?hilly?

Malaysia road race is rarely flat. The last one Noobie went in 2014, the route was diverted to the expressway. Yes, you will still get to run by and see the twin towers. There's a pesky hill somewhere around the 33-37km mark. Maybe the incline is something like Benjamin Sheares bridge in SCMS but longer. But no worries, you'll live :)

This will be Noobie's 7th SCKLM. Been doing this since it first start in 2009. And only skipped last year because it got cancelled due to the haze.

Which hotels do u all usually stay or is staying?

you can stay at any hotel up to Bukit Bintang area. From that point it would be about 1.5 to 2km walk to starting line in morning. I usually stay in that area as there are many budget hotels there. Also you can walk-in to those type of hotels without any reservation. Ah... good times indeed

You mean it's super hilly?

no it's not. Just gradual inclines now and then except at around the 33-37km mark (can't remember exactly). But that's the point, can't remember because though there was that giant incline, it can and will be conquered and you'll forget about it.

Sounds like SCMS too with the incline after the 32km distance.... Any slopes after that just seemed to be monsters....

OK lah. Even if you break to a walk, you can still conquer it. Maybe pacing drop by 1-2min per km. The funny thing Noobie's timing is always better at SCKLM than at SCMS. Noobie's performance always drops whenever the East Coast part of the race begins. The 'sian' ness of running the to-and-fro  really is a mind killer. For SCKLM, there are no loops and in some intersections manned by the police, you gotta be fast and be on high alert lest you get run over by a car. haha!

yes, walking up the slope is one strategy so that one will not get extra tired trying to conquer the slope and then walk for the rest of the race...hahah.... means Bro Noobie cannot run at safe and relax route... must be those with cars driving past...hahhah

    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
    • @sandy620, message uncle if you are interested, we can talk freely there, for sure, uncle is interested to form a team...for 300 members...do you really need so many? more like for good enough to gather school kids since school holidays are coming... Sad to say, here we have a lots of event thread starters, race recommendations, race reviewers (past and present) not much of participants in running except uncle and a few runners who can do beyond 16km...because of Covid-19, all races are cancelled, so motivation is curbed, and outdoor activities are "not as active as before". maybe you and uncle can do 1680KM... already uncle said monthly 700km, and how many then can you contribute as the other member?..maybe we need only 4-5 members. btw, local virtual races/challenges do not have really appealing to uncle, like sponsor is who? Local fee in SGD price, uncle could look overseas races for more affordable value.. like...for $30++....NB running tee (black), NB finisher tee (white), participant's medallion, a poncho... just need for 42KM... Seoul Marathon 2021...so cool...no idea what is offered for round Singapore one...uncle got high expectation one..😄 uncle is currently exploring Sao Paulo, Brazil...will let all know next time... As uncle has said, PM uncle on your interest...uncle does not talk much, just execute and show results...completes and finishes... 😄
    • ahhhh so busy schedule... was initially thinking that maybe we can form a team *opss* HAHAHAH to join the round Singapore one hehehehehe
    • Yeappp HAHAHAH self challenge!! But we can get more than 10 members if we want... saw most of the teams from this event, some of them got more than 100 members!
