This will the third consecutive year the event was being held in collaboration with the Negri Sembilan Government, the state Tourism Action Council, the state Tourism Promotion Board and the Negri Sembilan Amateur Athletics Association with support from the Port Dickson Municipal Council and Avillion Port Dickson.
State Tourism, Unity, Culture, Arts, Heritage and Malay Customs committee chairman Mohamad Razi Kail said 3,000 people were expected to take part in this year’s run.
“We have 242 participants from Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Nepal and Kenya. We’re hoping to see an increase in numbers from last year’s 2,045 participants,” he said.
“The activities are in line with a campaign to promote Port Dickson as an international holiday destination and a health and wellness zone,” Mohamad Razi said.
Malaysia’s first astronaut Negri Sembilan-born Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor has been signed on as an icon for both the PD International Half Marathon and the upcoming PD International Triathlon in July.
Dr Sheikh Muszaphar said he agreed to be part of the event as he was keen to promote healthy activities among the youth.
“I want children to be inspired by events like these that focus on physical and mental strength,” he said, adding that he hoped to see active participation from the young.

PENANG: The Penang Bridge Run 2008 has been cancelled due to financial and manpower constraints.The organisers will also not be able to ensure the safety of participants on the bridge, which is undergoing renovation work and is narrower now.
Malaysian Highway Authority director-general Datuk Mohamad Razali Othman said last year’s event had “drained all our financial sources to host the event this year.”
He said the highway authority would need more than RM500,000 to host the run and did not want to tax their sponsors to fund the event.
Last year’s run, to commemorate the country’s 50th anniversary and Visit Malaysia 2007, drew 21,399 runners including some 800 participants from 50 countries.
The event featured a 42.2km full marathon, a 22.3km half marathon, a 10km quarter marathon and a newly introduced 10km fun run which attracted more than 8,000 participants. There were 11 categories altogether.
Mohamad Razali said the highway authority might organise the marathon next year after the bridge-widening project had been completed and if they were enough funds.
He said highway authority decided to cancel the run at the end of March and had informed the Penang Tourism Action Council.
