The Allianz Penang Bridge International Marathon (APBIM) 2012 is set to launch this 7 August at Eastin Hotel, Penang. The actual event will fall on 18 November 2012.
APBIM has been attracting people from all over the world. Last year, the total number of participants reached up to 27,500 runners compared to 24,000 in year 2010 and 19,000 in year 2009. This year, we have received approximately 20,000 registered participants to date since the registration opened on 28 April 2012.
For runners, please note that this may be the last time for you to run on the Penang Bridge as the Marathon will be moved to the Second Penang Bridge from next year onwards.

However, there will be no limit on participants for the fun run category. The participation fee for each category is as follows:
