Safety is our primary concern. The original event date of 14-15 March 2020 sadly was not possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we were forced to postpone the event just 1 week before the event date. This was an extremely unfortunate and expensive eventuality. We tried several subsequent event dates in 2020 and 2021, but again the Covid-19 pandemic prevented from this being possible, with no mass participation events being allowed in Malaysia at this time. The latest event date of 29-30 October 2022 has now been set, to give as much time as possible for the pandemic recovery.
All individual and team relay registrations, together with race entitlements, will be automatically deferred to the rescheduled event date. Registered participants who are unable to take part in the rescheduled event have the option to utilise the Powerman Malaysia Marketplace . This is a platform specifically designed to connect athletes wanting to sell their race entry (the Seller) with those wanting to register for the event (the Buyer). As the event has been sold out for a long time, there is plenty of new demand for tickets.
