Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, with a multicultural population, entertainment, culture, nature, shopping and fantastic cuisine. With a population of two million, Kuala Lumpur is the gateway into Malaysia, and a melting pot that showcases the city’s contrasts and diversity.

The race begins in Kuala Lumpur’s City Center, at the historical clock tower building of Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur. You will take on a course traveling past all the major attractions of Kuala Lumpur, you will get to experience Kuala Lumpur in a way that it has never been experienced before. Get ready for a life-highlight experience of your visit and your sports accomplishments at GFNY Kuala Lumpur.

From the start line at Jalan Raja, head towards Jalan Raja Laut, where on the left is the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur Building (Kuala Lumpur City Hall). From Jalan Raja Laut, turn onto Jalan Sultan Ismail and head towards Jalan Raja Chulan, where on the left are the Petronas Twin Towers while on the right you will see the Kuala Lumpur Telekom Tower together with major buildings and hotels of Kuala Lumpur.

Continue on Jalan Raja Chulan, it will lead you to Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Kinabalu, Jalan Maharajalela, Jalan Loke Yew and Jalan Cheras until Jalan Lingkaran Tengah 2 (Middle Ring Road 2 / MRR2), this stretch of the course is still within the Kuala Lumpur City Limits.

Along the MRR2, you will  pass the National Zoo on the right and major housing areas of Melawati Hills on both sides of the route. Towards the end of the MRR2, you will pass on the famous Batu Caves, a Hindu Temple where the largest golden statue can be seen. The famous Hindu Thaipusam celebrations are held here every year and it is an important landmark of Kuala Lumpur. At KM 55, the courses split, the medium route riders turn right to head to the finish, the long course riders go straight to tackle the full course.

You will then cross the Rawang Bypass Bridge, which is the 2nd tallest bridge in Malaysia at a height of 58.2 meters. The bridge is an infamous KOM section at the Tour de Langkawi pro race. Then, you’ll face the longest climb of the day, the 10km-long climb with 300m elevation gain to the recreational area of Ulu Yam, where you can experience the beautiful tropical forest. You’ll have a chance to recover during the 10km-long descent before climbing a short, but steep 1km climb.

The final 25km to the finish are flat and fast. The race to the finish line will take you through Jalan Kuching and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim. On the left is the KL Hockey Stadium while on the right are Government’s Offices of Jalan Duta. At this final stage of the route, you will be able to see The Parliament Building, The National Museum and the famous Majestic Hotel of Kuala Lumpur together with the Original Kuala Lumpur Train Station and National Mosque. And finally, you’ll cross the finish line at the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad Building, where you started the day.
