Malaysia Women Marathon 2013 Registration Open

More info has trickled in for this event that I initially posted here.
This was taken from their Facebook Page
Looked like we (men) can only run if we are registered by our spouse, girlfriend or if you are the designated pacer for the lady. Meaning, you (men) will have to run with your wife, girlfriend, client (as in if you are a personal trainer) or pacee (is that such thing? :P). Entry fee is RM90 (for early bird). The race promises much goodies and fun. Karen Loh, I knew you were all along in this ;-) Nicely done.
Registration is now open at MyRaceOnline.com. If you are not a member, you will need to sign up (it's free) and you will then be allowed to register for any races hosted in the MyRaceOnline domain. Click here for the event registration.

If you are registering for your Man (spouse, pacer, trainer, brother), you will have to "sign up and pay for two" and then email the race organiser the MAN's detail and T-shirt sizing. 

Below is taken from MWM Facebook page (as of Jan 7, 2013. Go like them if you have not!):
