The River Jungle Marathon 2011 - Registration is Open!

The Malaysia only and the best boutique marathon 42km only - The River Jungle Marathon is now open for registration !


The River Jungle Marathon 2011 is back by popular demand!

The River Jungle Marathon is one of the most beautiful marathon destinations in Malaysia. Located just 20-minutes from the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the marathon is set amidst a landscape like no other. On this full marathon route, you will experience a mix of Malaysia’s beautiful landscape bringing you through valleys, rivers, dams and mountains.

Experience all this without even having to leave the road, as The River Jungle Marathon is an On Road run. 


We believe running should be fun; it shouldn’t be all about how fast we can run.

The River Jungle Marathon is not a race. There is no big prize money at the finish line. It’s simply for runners who find joy of just being able to run! It’s a run that attracts runners from all walks of life. So we recommend for you to bring a notepad and exchange numbers!

This year however, we intend to have a photography contest. So, be prepared to whip out your camera and bring it along for the run! 


The race will begin next to the Police Station Batu 18, Hulu Langat. (or Balai Polis Bt. 18, Hulu Langat) It will end, at the same place. 


The first thing you need to know is that you will be running a full marathon distance. It’s 42.195 km (or a little more), and there is no other distance. It is, not for the faint of heart.

The River Jungle Marathon is a road run (all asphalt, and no, it’s not a trail run). The route will take you through the scenic villages of Hulu Langat leading you up a 1000 feet climb or about 2.5KM of non-stop uphill running, past valleys, rivers, mountain views, jungle, a hot spring, and even monkeys. Yes, monkeys (if you’re lucky).

It won’t be easy, but if you’re a nature lover who likes getting away from the usual hustle and bustle of a city road race then this will be exactly what you will be looking for! 

This was how we enjoy our River Jungle Marathon last year! 

We really having our fun time running the River Jungle Marathon last year!
