Getting There

By Plane & CarTo get to Kuantan, international visitors can fly direct or transit from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Travel by air is possible via Malaysian Airlines (MAS) or the budget people mover Air Asia Airlines. There are flights practically each day between Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Sultan Ahmad Shah Airport in Kuantan. The duration is less than 45 minutes. MAS offers a more luxurious and comfortable ride but Air Asia has much cheaper rates along with basic trimmings on the plane. Flights between KLIA and Kuantan may be delayed or turned back due to bad weather (This may happen during the rainy seasons)
On the other hand, those travelling from other destinations in Peninsular Malaysia can easily take a taxi or bus, as well as rent their own cars, there is also a good road link from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Kota Bharu in Kelantan.
By Bus & TaxiThere are many express bus companies and cabs willing to take you to Kuantan from major cities in Peninsular Malaysia. Most come from Kuala Lumpur and you can easily hop on a bus that departs to Kuantan each day from the Pudu Raya Bus Terminal. On the other hand, you can also hail a taxi and the driver should be more than willing to take you. For obvious reasons, the cab will be much more expensive than a simple bus ticket.
By RailwayNeither Kuantan nor Terengganu has a railway service. The nearest railway station to Kuantan is in Mentakab, about 120 KM away in the West. After reaching the Mentakab station from Kuala Lumpur or Johor, you need to take a bus or taxi to continue onwards to Kuantan.

What do I bring?
Bring the least amount of belongings necessary, this way you can strictly focus & enjoy the race! 

Can my family and friends come watch me during the event day?
Definitely! We just ask that they stay in the carnival area behind the fencing/caution tape for safety purposes. We also ask them not to gather at the race entrance/exit point so as not to create a blockage for participants.

Can I bring my phone or camera?
We highly encourage bringing such devices- just make sure they are well protected from the elements. 

Can I bring my pet dog, cat, or hamster?
We love your pets, which is why they aren’t allowed. For the safety of pets and all runners, please leave your furry/scaly/slimy/squawking friends at home. Participation will be prohibited should they tag along.

What happens if there’s bad weather?
