The marathoner without legs It all happen on a fine day in December 2011. Mohd Sharifuddin Ezham was stationary on his bike at a traffic light intersection when a 5-tonnes lorry failed to stop and rolled over his leg. Due to the severity of his injuries, both his legs had to be amputated. He was only 25 then. Fast forward to today, Sharifuddin has achieved most able-bodied men can only dream off. So far, he has completed Six Half Marathons, 3 Ultra Marathons (50 km) and 4 Full Marathons. His 4th Full Marathon happens 2 weekend ago on the 27th April 19 in a time of 04:31:28. We hope Sharifuddin’s story will inspire all of us. Currently lives in Shah Alam, Selangor, he said his involvement in the marathon burns his spirits to move forward. He is now learning to swim to prepare himself to become a triathlete. As a triathlete, he need to master 3 disciplines i.e. Swim, Bike & Run This coming July 14th, Sharifuddin and his group of friends will be competing in the 5km & 10km distance in their wheelchairs. Let us all come together this 14th July and run/cheer on Sharifuddin & his team.


For those familiar with the local triathlon scene, the mention of the name Sabki will instantly bring in the image of a one-arm triathlete. To Mohd Sabki Arrifin, having only one arm has never deterred him from competing in multisport events. Sabki, a national Paralympic athlete and a well-known triathlete lost his left arm in a road accident in 2000. In 2004, he begins his swimming lesson with the objective to compete in the Paralympic events. In the following year, he shocks everyone when he competes in the 6.5 km Kapas – Marang Swimathon. Sabki continues to compete every year since that first race in 2005 and he also embarks into other multisport event (running, cycling, triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon). “I like to challenge myself and tell the world that I can still do it,” said Sabki who is currently based in Kuala Lumpur. Sabki will be racing in the 5 km distance under the 30-39 Prime Sprinters category at the Electrolux Home Run 2019.

Over 2,300 runners and eco-warriors thronged the finish line at the National Geographic Earth Day Run 2019

In conjunction with International Earth Day, the run celebrated the on-going efforts by National Geographic and its partners to promote environmental awareness

In celebration of the new GParks Rangers programme introduced by Gamuda Parks, this year’s run welcomed a new category exclusively for children aged between 6 to 13 years old, upping the effort to promote environmental awareness. GParks Rangers are young ambassadors of Gamuda Parks, a special initiative set up to establish a benchmark to promote sustainability in how Gamuda Land develop its townships. The new addition in the run provided a fun platform to educate the younger audience on the implications of single-use plastic pollution to the environment.

Known for its initiative and commitment to creating sustainable townships, Gamuda Land returned as the official partner and venue sponsor for the second year to reinforce their support for National Geographic’s plastic-free initiative. “As National Geographic’s ongoing commendable effort is in line with Gamuda Land’s brand values, we are truly happy to lend 

our support as we believe that through this strategic partnership, we will be able to educate our communities on living sustainably more effectively,” said Aw Sei Cheh, Project Director of Gamuda Land.

The first flag-off for the 15 km category kicked-started this year’s Earth Day Run at 6:30 AM while the 5 km and 2 km kids category started at 7:20 AM. Participants who triumphed in the run received attractive prizes, courtesy of Gamuda Land, Touch ‘n Go eWallet, and Fitness First. Amplifying the excitement at this year’s run, attendees were treated to exciting activities at the Race Village where they were able to get first-hand knowledge on composting and seed planting through interactive workshops, while enjoying exclusive breakfast & ice cream giveaway and exciting games.

Runners were encouraged to bring their own reusable drink bottles and were able to refill with reusable water tanks provided at the designated water stations. Reflecting the success of the Planet or Plastic? pledge, this year’s run saw runners and eco-warriors alike pledging their support on both online and on-ground at the National Geographic booth, to reduce the use of single-use plastic. Citizens and residents of Malaysia all over are invited to take the Planet or Plastic? pledge, and play their part in preventing 1 billion items from reaching the ocean by 2020.

The Earth Day Run in Malaysia is made possible thanks to local partnerships. Collaborating organizations in 2019 include Gamuda Land — as the official sponsor, FOX Sports Asia, Stadium Astro, Nivea Men, Touch ‘n Go eWallet, Fitness First, Cenviro, Weimar and Zero Waste Malaysia.

● The Besraya Highway Challenge will be an inaugural night run for the series.
● Registration is currently open at www.ijmhighwayrun.com and www.justonlineregistration.com
Registration closes on 1 June 2019 for both Besraya and NPE Highway Challenge

KUALA LUMPUR, 19 March 2019 — Following the success of the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge and the positive response the series has received over the past two years, IJM Corporation Berhad and Allianz Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Malaysia) have announced the extension of their partnership for this year's Duo Highway Challenge.



The popular run series will kick-off with the NPE Highway Challenge on 14 July with a unique distance of 21km half marathon challenge and 10km run respectively, followed by the Besraya Highway Challenge on 24 August which offers a much more challenging distance of the 26km and 13km run, compared to the 13km and 6km distances that was offered in 2017 and 2018. Since its debut in 2017, this year's challenge aims to attract more running enthusiasts with the exciting dditions in distance in the Besraya Highway Challenge.


Being the first ever duo highway challenge in Malaysia organized by Besraya (M) Sdn Bhd, New Pantai Expressway Sdn Bhd, and EC Pixels, this year’s challenge promises to be more exciting with the Besraya Highway Challenge being the series’ first night run, organized on a fully closed highway. The night run gives participants a cooler and more comfortable running experience while enjoying the scenic night view of the KL city skyline along the route. This year will also see the introduction of a relay run category for two runners with distances of 13km each.



“We are proud to announce the return of the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge 2019 as it gives runners the assurance for continuity and aligns with IJM’s long-term plans to continue contributing positively to sports and the community. We are excited to solidify the partnership between IJM, Allianz Malaysia and EC Pixels for the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge extension for another year. Just like previous events, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our participants, so they get to compete and complete the challenge on a fully closed highway worry-free without a single car obstructing the run routes. We would also like to thank the Malaysian Highway Authority for their continued assistance in ensuring the success of the event,” said Dato’ Soam Heng Choon, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of IJM Corporation Berhad.


This year, the organizers aim to attract 17,000 participants. The NPE Highway Challenge is expected to attract 10,000 runners and the Besraya Highway Challenge 7,000 runners. Those who are quick on their feet will get a chance to win RM84,400. Runners will also get a special edition t-shirt when registering for the Duo Highway Challenge that is limited to 4,000 participants only.

Zakri Khir, Chief Executive Officer or Allianz Malaysia Berhad said “Running has been something Allianz Malaysia has been very involved in since 2013 when the company kicked off its very own Allianz Pacer Running Community in October that year. The IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge is just one of five running events that we will be involved in this year. When we agreed to be co-sponsors of this run, it was forged on a mutual goal of strengthening our commitment towards driving the healthy living agenda amongst Malaysians. And I can say proudly how we have been able to achieve this at every edition since 2017.”


“After organizing this run for the past two years, we wanted to go the extra mile for runners to encourage them to continuously push their boundaries and take up the challenge. Seeing that our returning participants have taken on the highway during the morning run we have decided to change the Besraya Highway Challenge to a night run. So that runners will get the opportunity to enjoy breezing through the highway under the stars. As safety is always a priority, it will be a fully closed highway and runners will get to enjoy the cool night breeze and city lights on the run route.” said Eugene Chan, Group Managing Director of EC Pixels.

With the aim of using sports as a force for social good, the IJM Allianz Duo Highway Challenge aims to be more than just an ordinary running event. Passionate about giving back to the community, the organizers donated to Malaysia Lysosomal Diseases Association last year as part of its CSR engagement. This year, 30 wheelchairs will be presented to Persatuan Bekas Polis Malaysia by Y.Bhg. Dato’ Sr. Aziz Bin Abdullah, Director General of the Malaysian Highway Authority.
