Cikgu Adnan, 66-year-old marathon runner, gets sponsorship from Yayasan Sime Darby

Yayasan Sime Darby has contributed RM25,000 to support 66-year-old marathon runner Adnan Osman who can be admired for his tenacity and courage.

“This is not the type of endeavour an ordinary person will be able to accomplish and we admire Adnan for his courage,” he said at the handover of the company’s contribution to Adnan, here today.

Adnan, better known as Cikgu Adnan is a veteran of marathons.

He has competed in 12 marathons and scaled 12 mountains.

The six-day MDS race, to be held in Morocco from March 26 to April 2, will involve over 800 runners aged between 16 and 78. They are to cross 143 kilometres of uneven terrain in temperatures of up to 120 fahrenheit.
