MBM will work together with Running Coaches to conduct training programs, tips and joint training to assist runners to prepare themselves for the Race Day.
"Since the first Bali Marathon in 2012, we strive to accommodate the ever increasing public interest, including our customers, wishing to join the marathon. This is reflected in the growing number of participants annually. As the number of participants increases, we are committed to maintaining the runner's security and convenience by improving supporting infrastructure," says Widya Permana, Project Director Maybank Bali Marathon 2019.
Maybank Indonesia has the vision to bring MBM as a world class main sports tourism event.
