2015 - Edan Syah Breaks His Own Record Under 2:45:00

Edan’s story is an inspiration born of despair. He may have started his running journey in 2008, but his real journey through pain and overcoming began in 2011, when his mom passed away in December 2009.

“And all I could realize was that life is too short. That pushed me to do something worthwhile in my life.”

To pay tribute to his dearest mother, he ran his first full marathon in Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon and finished in 3:07:56 hours. At the finish line, tears streamed down his face, bringing both his hands to his face in disbelief and gratitude. Hailed as the second fastest Malaysian to finish the race, Edan knew since then what he is capable of doing.
