Kenyan Runners Predominate Among Winners at BII Maybank Bali International Marathon


(4/22/2012)

Over 2,000 runners from around the world participated in the first BII Maybank Bali Marathon run on the roads of Gianyar on Sunday, April 22, 2012.

The first group of full-marathon runners set off on a 42-km course at 5 pm sharp at the pfficial starting line located at the entrance to the Bali Safari and Marine Park.

Firing the official starting pistol was the regent of the Gianyar regency, Dr. Ir. Tjok Oka A.A. Sukawati. As the runners set off in the darkness a Balinese belaganjur orchestra struck up a chorus of drums and gongs.


Staggered starts were over the ensuing hours for the half-marathon, 10-km run and a special division for wheelchair-bound athletes.

As the runners crossed the finish line they picked up their finishers medals before proceeding deeper inside the park for a morning-long party filled with prize presentations, music from leading musicians and booths run by businesses who played an important supporting role in the first international full-marathon held in Indonesia in over two decades.
