Cementing the tri-partnership between Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia, Sony Mobile Communications and WeChat Malaysia.

As you would have noticed, the most famous marathon event in Malaysia, The Standard Chatered KL Marathon(SCKLM) has already opened their registration of the race with respective distance categories which includes 42KM, 21KM, 10KM, and 5KM while 3KM and 1KM category are designed for kids in particular. Well, I started joining for runs since last year, which I actually ran few half marathons(21KM) which includes the SCKLM as well. As for this year I decided to stick with the 21KM without upgrading to a full marathon(42KM) despite lack of practice and confidence. Have you tried joining marathon events? Well, you can always start with 5KM to kick start and slowly upgrade yourself for a longer distance. Who knows if you are born to run, until you try of course.

Okay, sorry for the slight off-topic. Now, in conjunction with the SCKLM, Sony Mobile and WeChat decided to work together and make this year’s event the best one till date as once you know what they could offer you, you could barely resist the amount of assistance and benefit for the event itself.

Let’s start with Sony and WeChat, what do they offer you? Well, for those who participate in this event, you could get the Sony Smartband which retails at RM399 for the price of RM299. What you have to do in order to grab this offer? Very simple, follow the official account on WeChat(ID:standardcharteredmy) and immediately you will receive a notification on WeChat stating your voucher code and how to claim your voucher, just like the screenshot below. Since you started following Standard Chartered MY, you will be notified with any upcoming updates regarding the SCKLM itself.

In addition to that, Standard Chartered has launched its JustOne Marathon Bonus Promotion, which means the first 5000 new account-holders to sign up for the JustOne account will be entitled to a RM120 discount to purchase the Sony Smartband OR Sony Xperia smartphones. So, if I am to sign up for the JustOne account, I will simply use this discount to buy a Sony Xperia smartphone, probably the Z1 or I would just save it up till the Z2 gets launched here and the voucher that I get by following Standard Chartered MY via WeChat will be used for the Sony Smartband. To get more info regarding what is JustOne account all about? Head to the following link.

Okay guys, that’s about it from me, I will definitely need to create a schedule for practices in order to be prepared for the SCKLM. Probably I could use the Sony Smartband instead of keep on checking the screen of my smartphone to check on the distance etc. Oh, and before I forget, do take note that you need  a smartphone running on Android 4.4 KitKat in order to get the Sony Smartband to work.

Happy running guys, hope to see you on the finish mark, if you’re willing to wait for me that is. Kidding.
