Bukit Jalil Area

Bukit Jalil is a small suburb in KL, developed into the area around the National Sports Complex for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. It’s one of the better suburbs in KL for running, with good transport access. The Complex has numerous sports facilities available, including a running track around the perimeter and a running track inside the stadium. We have two recommended routes:

Track around National Stadium

Bukit Komanwel (Commonwealth Forest) Park & National Stadium. From theĀ Bukit Jalil metro stop, do the 1.5 km loop around the pleasant park, with its small pond. Then head to the pedestrian/bike path, for a 1 mile loop around theĀ Bukit Jalil National Stadium.

Bukit Jalil Recreational Park. This pleasant 80-acre park has jogging trails and an international garden. Some steps as well to get in some hill work. A loop is about 2 km.

You can combine Bukit Komanwel and Bukit Jalil, which are about 3 km apart, using the Jalan Jalil Perkasa roads. They are tree-lined and have sidewalks but are busy. You can also take a bus along the road, or a quick train ride to Awan Besar.
