This is the 25th years Seremban Half Marathon since 1987. According to local runner, this year they improved by introduced D-tag and offered more water stations. It is a good day for running, little rain that helps cooling down the hot weather. Reached there around 5.45 a.m., lots of parking spaces available at roadside nearby to N.S. Padang Seremban. Lots of peoples but majority of them are secondary school students from Negeri Sembilan, adult runners are much fewer compare to marathon events in Kuala Lumpur or Selangor area.
Seremban Half Marathon Route is greeny with fresh airs unlike polluted condition in KL area. The route includes many inclines especially the last 5-6 km at Sikamat area and cars will actually passing near by your side due to non-closure of those roads. One thing to suggest to the organizer is that they should start 21Km half marathon earlier than 6.30 a.m., starting earlier will have less traffic and runner can run more freely without paying too much attention on the cars behind. However, it is a nice running event and may come back again next year.
The Royal Selangor made Pewter for Seremban Half Marathon do looks very nice and valuable especially compare to cut-cost mini sized PJ Dawn medal, the Seremban pewter definitely is one of my favourite finisher medal.
