The Penang Bridge International Marathon 2014 was held on Sunday, 16 November 2014 with around 62,000 participants running across the Second Penang Bridge for the first time in history

This year’s event saw participation from around 62,000 runners.


Billed as the world’s longest bridge marathon, the Penang Bridge International Marathon also created history this year as it marked the first time that the Second Penang Bridge is being used since the first bridge’s inception in 1985.


The full marathon category was dominated by the Kenyan runners who swept all top three medals in the male and female categories.


The biggest winner was probably a retired factory worker from Butterworth, Ong Poh Son, 62, a seasoned campaigner, who drove home a latest Honda City car after winning the top prize in the lucky draw. "I came here riding a motorcycle but will go home driving a car," said Ong who has been participating in the run since 1988.
