This is not the first time i heard about runner dies after running a half marathon. If you still remember, similar case also happened in KL.
Runners should learn listen to body, stop running when you are feeling something weird on muscles, breath, chest and etc etc...
Runners also should learn about their body whether do their fitness / conditions allow them to start running. Some who have asthma are advised to seek doctor advice before start running, even in running, much pre-caution need to take note.
RIP to the runner.
